How can I get started on editing the project?
« on: August 23, 2019, 01:40:37 pm »
I'd like to start improving Mexican coverage, towards which I've been slowly working on a list. How do I edit files on the project (nobody controls Mexico)? I've seen mention of a waypoint editor; where is this?

You can find all tools here: http://travelmapping.net/devel/tools.php It's linked in the footer.
The most important tool is the wpt editor: http://travelmapping.net/wptedit/

Mexico does currently not have a maintainer. Feel free to work on drafting new wpt files but be careful with active systems.
You need to be familar with Github hwy data repository, are you?

I think I successfully submitted a simple pull request: https://github.com/TravelMapping/HighwayData/pull/3072


Is there any way to import the waypoint list into the editor, or do you have to copy/paste from github?

The edit looks okay, as does the pull request. In the future you'll want to give the pull request a more descriptive title, of course.

The editor is not set up to import any files afaik. Just copy-paste into the edit window (and into the in-use labels box, if you're considering changing the name of a waypoint).
Clinched:

Is there a new URL for the manual? http://cmap.m-plex.com/tools/manual.php doesn't work and isn't archived.

The old manual is gone for good. @yakra might still have a copy - on a broken drive?

Jim has requested a review of your first modifications. I've checked 2D so far, see my comments  @ https://github.com/TravelMapping/HighwayData/pull/3074

Found a copy right here on my main desktop, in an out-of-the-way place I didn't expect to look at first. I'll fix some of the links up to not point to cmap.m-plex.com, and then put it online.

Edit: http://yakra.teresco.org/manual/manual.html
It's chock full of outdated info, but it's a start. Better than having all this just disappear on us.

I'll see about updating some of the info there. Maybe. ;)
