At first I thought this was kind of a dumb feature to add, so I said nothing figuring it would cause no harm.

I was wrong. It was awesome. I saw it tonight and used it.

Just to let you know, the Gatlinburg Bypass is actually US 441 Bypass (just unsigned).

Was finally getting around to adding some stuff to my list file from a FL trip last year and came upon an issue that it doesn't look like anyone else has yet raised: FL 404 should be extended west to I-95 at waypoint 188.

Will be dealt with when I get to that route in the overhaul process. ;)

Alright, had some time to research this one, and no, FL-404 will not be extended to I-95.  There are several reasons why.
1. GIS data doesn't show it going past CR-509.
2. While the BGS's on I-95 mention it, it seems FDOT goof and forgot to add the 'TO' text with it.  Proof of this is EB trailblazer on the 'supposed' route, here.  All signage going WB that I could find is just "TO I-95" shields.

Need to add:
FL 399 (this only consists of 1/3 mi of the route between US 98 and just short of the bridge to the barrier island, the rest being CR 399, but it is signed)

That one is debatable.  Normally, for us to consider the route as 'signed', there needs to be at least a shield on the mainline (couldn't find one).  So this one might not make the cut.

After doing some more research on FL-399, the route (even though it's signed on the BGS's on US-98) doesn't even leave the interchange with US-98, and thus, will not make the cut.  GIS data shows it ending right @ the gore point, and there this Begin/End Maintenance sign in the same location.

Big bump - I'm looking at getting the ball rolling on this system again. I've added the Mammoth Cave routes.

Are there other routes that need to be added? Criteria are:
1) a missing gap in an existing system (eg Mammoth Cave, California Routes, Yellowstone)
2) a specific NPS unit for the road (eg Natchez Trace, Blue Ridge, George Washington Memorial and Baltimore-Washington Parkways)
3) a through route linking roads already in (eg Painted Canyon Road)
4) an extension of an existing system into a park
5) roads that seem important enough and link with other roads - even if they dead-end

AFAICS, US441 in Great Smoky Mountains NP is part of US441, just badly signed. I've added the Gatlinburg Bypass though. Grand Canyon NP seems correct now (US180 ending at the gate, AZ64 and AZ67 signed through the park albeit maintained by the NPS rather than AZDOT)

- I consistently and deliberately substituted d for ð, on account of this being seemingly standard practice among sources within Iceland. See for example the official website of Vegagerðin, Iceland's DOT: http://www.vegagerdin.is/
Yep, you're right. I anglicised the transliteration. Swedish turned ð into d and Welsh (OK, a Celtic language rather than North Germanic) uses dd for a similar sound - eg Caerdydd is written in English as Cardiff.
Quote
- I've transcribed æ as ae but continued to treat it as one letter for the purpose of determining when to trim names. So, Ægisgata, per the standard rule of "keep all characters in the street name if there are four or fewer, trim to three if five or more" becomes ÆgisGat ("Ægis" is four characters), which is then transcribed into AegisGat
- Likewise for transcribing Þ into th.
As yakra says, transcribe before truncate.

I did have more comments, but they got eaten by my computer crashing. What I can remember, beyond the truncate-before-transcribing issue that made labels too long was 'Gat' -> 'Gata' changes (with Ægisgata, I got bogged down in the Ægis and ignored the four-letter 'Gata' shouldn't be truncated to 'Gat').

There are some datacheck errors: http://tm.teresco.org/devel/datacheck.php#preview.

Many VISIBLE_DISTANCE and SHARP_ANGLE errors which must be fixed or marked FP before activation but there are also some more "critical" errors like:

TH54 errors: There's a visible and hidden wp at the same location.
TH61 errors: 2 hidden wps at the same location.

Most of the errors are already detected by the wp editor.
