Sometimes I see highways with a broken classification/hierarchy on the map. For example: Example 1

  • in green we have a small tertiary section connected to residential highways; or this small tertiary should be residential like everything else or we are missing some tertiary highways on the area
  • in red we see a residential section that should be, at least, tertiary (connecting the secondary to the tertiary highway)

Another example: Example 2

  • in green we see some residential sections that should be secondary, making it a continuous secondary highway
  • in red we see an isolated primary section (which probably should also be secondary)

Do we have any tools to detect (or help detecting) cases like this, where the classification/hierarchy is broken?

Excellent question. Seems like a SQL query would be able to catch this. I just don’t happen to have resources for it personally.

Hello “Brazil” contributors”…

I think your community must work for to make a spacial tools for that (I don’t know if it’s a case?…). In my country, “FRANCE” we have a special tool, however, it’s not perfect (like everybody…). You can see this tool at this link below:

And select IGN Route500.

This is an example for my country “only”, probably the same thing exist in other countries. Ask this question to your community and “friends” or seek in the Wiki…

Use Search for “Brazil” and click on a name Then look for “Изолированные рутинговые подграфы” and subitems. To see them on a map, click “на карте”. Example. Clicking on a marker opens JOSM at that point.
