Despite its relatively small size, the Mountain State is home to approximately 3,100 cities, towns and small communities.  To link them (and to provide an important part of the transport of the state’s abundant natural resources), there are some 36,000 miles of state-maintained highways that include 6,636 bridges (this figure does not include 238 railroad bridges, 117 city and county bridges, 99 West Virginia Turnpike bridges, 20 state park bridges, two private toll bridges and 132 other non-highway bridges).

'''Please do not mass-edit''' Do not perform edits which will affect large numbers of segments at once. The edit history of segments is highly valuable in the process of solving URs. Mass editing effectively mass erases this history, permanently. We ask that all necessary processes which might affect large portions of the map, or long stretches of roads, be reserved until near the end of the MapRaid. This includes the “Select entire street” function.

=== State & County Route Naming ===
+
=== WV Route Naming ===
State highways that are primarily signed at entering intersections with a State Route number like [[image:75px-WV-2.svg.png|30px]] rather than a road name should be named WV-### ("WV-2"). County roads that are primarily signed at entering intersections with County Road numbers like [[image:WVCountyMain.png|30px]] or [[image:WestVirginiaCountySub.png|30px]] rather than a road name should be named CR-## or CR-##/## ("CR-65" or "CR-91/1").
+
West Virginia uses the WV-XXX format for all State Routes. For County Routes, CR-XX or CR-XX/YY is used. There are no Township Roads (TR-XXX) in West Virginia. In a few limited cases, there are special road names in use; if you see one, please do not delete it or ask a question first prior to deleting it. More detail and examples can be found here: [[West_Virginia/Major_roads|WV Route Naming]].

=== Functional Classification ===
  
'''The Functional Classification (FC) has been completed in West Virginia.'''
+
'''Functional Classification Will Not Be Part Of This Raid.'''
 +
<!-----WV, at this time, does not have a GIS map that will make decision making as to the proper road type (Street/Primary Street/Minor Highway/Major Highway/Freeway) easy or quick. They do have a list of Federal Aid Roads which includes the roads with a functional classification of minor collector or higher. Please DO NOT Change the Road Type for any segment type of Primary Street (PS) or higher without consulting the State Managers (SMs).
  
Occasionally, we find short segments that were missed in the selection process for conversion, and it is important that these be corrected for routing continuity. In general, however, we ask that Road Types not be changed without consulting either your [[#Raid Groups | Group Leader]] or one of the [[#Local Hosts | Local Hosts]]. In isolated cases, we have chosen to deviate from official classifications, due to errors or outdated information in the FC maps, or to better accommodate real-life situations and Waze quirks. It is important that these remain intact. Sometimes dirt roads may appear higher on FC maps but shouldn't be used by Waze for routing.

This Raid wiki has not yet been finalized, and is a work in progress. Once finalized we will send out to all raid participants


Map Raid West Virginia will run for approximately 16 days from Sunday March 18th through Sunday April 2nd.


Welcome to Wild, Wonderful West Virginia

USA West Virginia.png

Despite its relatively small size, the Mountain State is home to approximately 3,100 cities, towns and small communities. To link them (and to provide an important part of the transport of the state’s abundant natural resources), there are some 36,000 miles of state-maintained highways that include 6,636 bridges (this figure does not include 238 railroad bridges, 117 city and county bridges, 99 West Virginia Turnpike bridges, 20 state park bridges, two private toll bridges and 132 other non-highway bridges).

WV Leadership

stephenr1966 (PM) - GHO: Stephen - Local Champ, USA CM, WV SM - Generally available weekdays between 6pm-11pm and weekends anytime

markr4468 (PM) - GHO: Mark - WV SM, OH LAM - Generally available

Important!

Please do not alter any of the following road types without first consulting a WV State Manager or your Group Leader: Freeways, Ramps, Major Highways, Minor Highways or Primary Streets.

Please do not mass-edit Do not perform edits which will affect large numbers of segments at once. The edit history of segments is highly valuable in the process of solving URs. Mass editing effectively mass erases this history, permanently. We ask that all necessary processes which might affect large portions of the map, or long stretches of roads, be reserved until near the end of the MapRaid. This includes the “Select entire street” function.

Anything locked at 5 or 6? Please check with a WV State Manager or your Group Leader before making changes. Rank 5 and 6 editors - consider keeping highlights active for locks 5 and 6.

Micro Dogleg/Close nodes We make extensive use of the "micro-dogleg" technique, where a geometry node is carefully placed, at full zoom, directly next to a junction node, in order to set the angle to create a desired Turn/Stay/Exit prompt. Please watch for these if you move any junction node, and be sure to recreate the same angle at the new location.

Turn Instruction Overrides Please check with a WV State Manager or your Group Leader if you believe that a turn instruction override is warranted. To see those in WME, check the box in TB Options.

Local Guidance

WV Route Naming

West Virginia uses the WV-XXX format for all State Routes. For County Routes, CR-XX or CR-XX/YY is used. There are no Township Roads (TR-XXX) in West Virginia. In a few limited cases, there are special road names in use; if you see one, please do not delete it or ask a question first prior to deleting it. More detail and examples can be found here: WV Route Naming.

Functional Classification

Functional Classification Will Not Be Part Of This Raid.

MAR Minimum Road Lock Standard

Other Named Types 5


Note that these are minimums and, for protection, certain segments may be at higher lock levels. If you find a road locked to a higher level than its minimum, please leave it locked no lower than that level when you have finished editing.

West Virginia User Report Management

West Virginia has a very good grasp on User Reports/Map Problems throughout the state. This will not be a "primary focus" of the raid, but please feel free to work any UR/PUR/MP's in your editable area. Remember to follow the Response Timeline guidelines below.

Response Timeline

(NOTE: all day values are relative to the date the FIRST editor response is sent to the reporter)

Day 0

The first editor who is able to respond to a User Report (UR) should attempt to resolve the UR. If they are successful, they should comment as such in the UR and mark it "Solved". If more information from the reporter is required to make progress towards closure, a response should be sent to the reporter containing the information needed for resolution.

Day 4+

Polite reminders should be sent to reporters who have not responded to the initial at any time, provided at least four full days have elapsed since the initial response was sent

Day 8+

URs may be noted as closed due to lack of reporter response at any time, provided at least four full days have elapsed since the followup message was sent. These need to be marked as "Not Identified" and a brief comment sent.

Shared Ownership

All editors are considered to have equal ownership of and responsibility for all URs in West Virginia. All editors, regardless if they have worked the UR previously, may send any of the responses described above, provided they adhere the minimum time spacing guidance between responses. All editors are explicitly encouraged to attempt to resolve URs at any point during their lifecycle, even if others happen to be actively working it at the same time.

Notes

The script URComments streamlines the process of responding to a UR and provides comments based on the UR type and can be edited prior to sending to fit your needs. Highly recommend you install this script if you will be responding to URs.

Cameras

Cameras will not be mapped

§17C-6-7a of the West Virginia Code prohibits use of cameras to detect or prove traffic law violations. You can remove all Red Light or Speed Cameras in WV.

Place Editing

West Virginia follows the national Places guidance.

To prevent loss of data due to automatic acceptance of submissions from "trusted users", all area places and points with complete data should be locked to Level 2 at a minimum. Additionally, please consult the following table for minimum lock level for completed places.

Place Type Minimum Lock Level
Area/Point Places 2
Gas Stations 3
Hospital/Medical Care 4
Fire Department 4
Police Station 4
Airports 4
Parking Lot Area (PLA) 3


Mapping Resources

West Virginia Maps

WVDOT County Maps

West Virginia GIS Resources

We highly recommend that you install the WME GIS script. This script will make it a lot easier to access the multiple GIS websites.

If you do not wish to install this script please visit the West Virginia Cities and Towns page for all GIS links. NOTE:Not all WV counties have GIS links. Only hyperlinked county names are linked to the County GIS. City/Town names are hyperlinked to the WME Permalink. If you get confused digging through all of the different GIS sites, which will probably happen (it has to all of us), please contact your Group Leader or a WV State Manager for guidance

Results

Watch here for results of the Raid.

MapRaid Promotions

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

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

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