DO NOT START a new thread unless it is about a new idea. Keep discussion of existing tools within the main thread for that tool. Why does Waze have to choose which colors we like? Wouldn’t it be nice to let the user choose? Wouldn’t it be better for color-blind people to choose colours they can distinguish? Unfortunately this is not possible with the current tiles, as they are generated on a Waze server and we just download them. What you see is what you can edit. When the elements are loaded they are drawn. No more clicking on segments that can’t be selected. You don’t have to save to see the edit, segments are redrawn when you move/delete them (less confusion when deleting/moving segments). Tries to take the good things of the old and new layers and puts them together (mostly old colors for street, primary and highways and new colors for non-drivable/dirty/parking lot streets, plus restrictions and toll). Names placements is not as nice as in the new road layer but, as far as I know, with this version of OpenLayer, is not possible to do better. Names might overlap. If you would like to try it, please send me a PM, I’ll let you know in the following hours/days when I have something usable. So long as Waze continue to keep their heads stuck in the sand apparently not listening to any of the (mostly valid) criticisms of the new road layer, then this script could become very important to quite a few editors, myself included, and it’s something I would have almost certainly ended up trying to write myself if no-one else had done so. So I’d say it’s very definitely worth continuing with, and if there’s anything I can help out with please don’t hesitate to get in touch. PM has already been sent Also, I know not everyone likes this feature of the new road layer, but it would also be nice to have the road name text match the road type color (as an option), especially if it’s not possible to make OpenLayers show the text at an angle along the road. but it would also be nice to have the road name text match the road type color (as an option), especially if it’s not possible to make OpenLayers show the text at an angle along the road. Labels are colored matching the street type. The outline white/dark is automatically computed for better readability (might need to be fine tuned). So far is possible only to change the street types, I want to let you also change the toll, restriction and closure decorations. – At zoom level 3 the streets are not shown. I understand why (you cannot fetch the data), may be by scanning at zoom level 4… – Overal looks great! (I hope this will help me with the problem I have with openlayers tiles ,not only on Waze map, that for an unkown reason my computer sometimes fails to download) Source.
