===Cities===
 +
In South Carolina, all incorporated cities and towns are mapped as cities.  City names should only be added to segments located on or within the borders of the city or town.
 +
 +
We also will map some CDP’s (Census-Designated Places) depending on the local zip code.  When one goes to the [USPS Zip Code Lookup], one can search cities by zip code.  When a zip code is typed into the search, the system will return multiple names.  The first name is the Zip Code’s default city, after that other recognized city names, and finally a list of unacceptable city names.  If a CDP’s name is the same as a default or recognized city name, it should be mapped to the CDP’s declared boundaries; if a CDP’s name is an unacceptable name or not listed, it should not be mapped.
 +
 +
Some military bases may also be mapped as cities in South Carolina. Do not try to add or remove military city polygons.
 +
 +
No unincorporated communities that are not CDP’s are mapped in South Carolina, regardless of Zip Codes.
 +
 +
For place addresses, the city name should match the name of the city or town it is located in.  If located in a CDP that is mapped because of a Zip Code, the place should use that name.  If located in a CDP that is not mapped or other unincorporated areas, the place should use the default city of its Zip Code.

Latest revision as of 04:40, 7 March 2017


Registration for the MapRaid! is now closed. To hear about future MapRaids please join the MapRaid #Slack. has begun on 2015-06-21, Sunday. 00:00 UTC. The raid will last for roughly 7 days.


MapRaid SC Beachcomber Raid will be 21 June at 17:00 UTC (1:00 PM EDT) through 28 June 2015. The map raid will be divided into several groups, one for each section. Each group will have both local and senior editors, one of which will be the "Group leader" - listed in blue below. Please direct all questions to your group leaders. The raid hosts will be available across all areas for added support.

You will also be given a super region. Your goal as raiders should be to get your assigned area as complete and through as possible. Please don't edit outside your assign area unless directed to or with permission from a local host.

Mission

Our mission is to handle

  • Functional Classification
  • Places, especially in resort areas.
  • URs, MPs, and general map verification

Mapraid managers

Every editor rank 3 and up from the state who has AM area and has been active recently and is participating in this MR will be listed as a host.

About this map raid

Please read the entire MapRaid wiki. If you are still uncertain what to do about something you see on the map, please ask your group leader Thank You for your help with the map.

What NOT to do

Mass Edit
DO NOT perform edits that affect large numbers of segments at once. We want to know who fixed what so we can understand how problems got resolved.
Add wayfinders
If you are 100% certain a wayfinder is needed, please ask HavanaDay, CrazyCaveman, or ialangford.

Group areas

You have editing access to a super region. Please stay within your assigned group area. If your group area is completely done, your group leader will assign you to one of the other groups for the remainder of the raid. Please use the mapraid overlay extension to keep track of your group area boundaries.

Mapraid UR Rules

We will follow the usual US UR etiquette with one exception: During the Map raid, the wait time is reduced to 4 days.

Do not close URs if the UR contains a tag such as [NOTE], [CLOSURE], or any other [MESSAGE]. Ask the editor who created the tag.

Micro-Doglegs

We use micro-doglegs to control turn- vs. stay/keep/exit instructions. Zoom in very close to see the closely-spaced geometry nodes. Preserve them.

Cities

In South Carolina, all incorporated cities and towns are mapped as cities. City names should only be added to segments located on or within the borders of the city or town.

We also will map some CDP’s (Census-Designated Places) depending on the local zip code. When one goes to the [USPS Zip Code Lookup], one can search cities by zip code. When a zip code is typed into the search, the system will return multiple names. The first name is the Zip Code’s default city, after that other recognized city names, and finally a list of unacceptable city names. If a CDP’s name is the same as a default or recognized city name, it should be mapped to the CDP’s declared boundaries; if a CDP’s name is an unacceptable name or not listed, it should not be mapped.

Some military bases may also be mapped as cities in South Carolina. Do not try to add or remove military city polygons.

No unincorporated communities that are not CDP’s are mapped in South Carolina, regardless of Zip Codes.

For place addresses, the city name should match the name of the city or town it is located in. If located in a CDP that is mapped because of a Zip Code, the place should use that name. If located in a CDP that is not mapped or other unincorporated areas, the place should use the default city of its Zip Code.

Road Types, Names, and Functional Classification (FC)

In South Carolina , we follow the general US standards for road types based on the hybrid rule of FC and Route Type.

Some notes:

  • South Carolina Highways: SC-###.
  • State highway secondary system S-46-18 -- used as alternate name only.
    • The route number is a combination of county code (46) and road number (18)
    • If there is no other name on the sign, then the primary name should be Rd 18
    • If an interstate exit says County Rd 18, it is actually for a state secondary
  • County Road: CR-537, CR-4 are usually not signed. Only use this as the primary name if it appears on signs.
    • If it is called County Rd XXX it is NOT a county road -- it is usually a state secondary route (see above)
  • For SC and S numbers ONLY, use the SCDOT streetfinder
  • You can read more about road naming in South Carolina
  • If a road has more than one name follow the standard for Concurrent names on US roads.

Places

Please bring places up to standard -- correct names, categories, addresses, locations, and remove inappropriate photos. Follow the US standard for places, except as noted below.

Chain Harmonization Sheet

The name spellings in the following sheet have been standardized for chains or franchises so that Wazers will receive consistent results when searching in the client. Please use them when you edit one of these chain or franchise businesses. Websites and descriptions have also been included for many of them. If you have any thoughts on a effective and short description for a location please let us know.
  • Missing Chains
If you don't find the business you're looking for, please use this form to submit the missing information and PM ialangford and replace "Place" with the one you added.

View this list full-screen in Google Sheets


  • Use the Places Browser to help you catch possible mistakes.
  • Please lock places to 3 once you have corrected all of the following:
    • Destination point
    • Categories
    • Address
    • Name

Exceptions to the US standards for places:

The following are NOT mapped in South Carolina:

  • interchanges/junctions

  • islands
  • beaches

Results

Check back here after the raid is completed to see the results and achievements

MapRaid Promotions

Some editors really let their bright side out and let their community skills shine. This is even more evident during a concerted group effort with high-density editing that happens during a MapRaid!. When editors of all ranks work closely with each other and the Champs, this really lets everyone get to know each other, and allows certain editors to be recognized for their skill and effort.

When the Champs see someone consistently editing well, interacting well with the community, and showing knowledge of the various details from the Wiki, they can issue promotions. This can be anything from managed area size increase, to a rank increase, or even a new role.

Watch here for results of promotions during and after the raid.
