Old Routes
Back in the dark ages, I drafted NL1 as part of cantch, and NL2, 3A, 100 & 430 as part of the defunct cansph system, using largely Google, and a bit of Yahoo, when map quality was still pretty inaccurate in the region. I'll give these routes a more thorough examination later.

Shaping
looks very nice overall in this system.

NL10: +X149881 -> http://www.openstreetmap.org/?lat=46.759613&lon=-53.594903

NL30:
Suggest adding GowSt just N of the south end at NL2/40, to clarify the routing in this area
Suggest adding MarDr & LogyBayRd N of NL1


NL75: move NewHarRd to connecting road
NL92: adding BenPowRd between +X359076 & +X879408 can shorten the VISIBLE_DISTANCE.
NL201: still within tolerance if +X413558 deleted
NL213: move +X948317 more southwest?
NL215: replace +X910504 with Bro
NL220: still within tolerance if +X673370 deleted
NL231: adding HicHarRd between +X811555 & MainRd eliminates a VISIBLE_DISTANCE error.
NL233: +X576834 looks nicer here :)
NL320: +X702900 can be safely deleted
NL335: +X964529 can be safely deleted
NL363: +X997962 looks nicer here :)
NL364: Yesss. I like the way the shaping at the W end looks in WPTEdit. 8)
NL392: shaping point needed between +X310118 & ShoArmRd; BakRd fits the bill
NL417: +X341025 looks nicer here?
NL420: +X963385 = Well Done Sir!
NL421: +X856994 looks nicer here? Now I'm just getting nitpicky...
NL431: replace +X268244 with MarRd
NL440: shaping point needed just before the N end @ MainSt
NL460: +X775207 & +X976486 can be consolidated into one point

NL480:
shaping point needed between +X713425 & +X909597
+X940054 & +X691228 can be safely deleted

NL490: +X364507 can be safely deleted
NL500: +X840463 can be safely deleted

NL510:
+X937540 can be safely deleted
Satellite view outside tolerance near +X965918. Suggest replacing with +X174620 & +X439707
+X284238 can be safely deleted

NL516: +X660062 & X472528 can be consolidated into one point
NL520: +X386868 can be safely deleted

Point Order

Some routes don't follow the standard S->N or W->E point order.
Which may be intentional; not every place does. For example, Nova Scotia seems to follow an "away from Halifax" convention. See NS101, NS103, and their NS1 & NS3 children.
Or it may be unintentional, an artifact of how WPTedit spit out the files while editing.

If we do wanna follow S->N/W->E, these routes may need their point order reversed:
<3> 10 20 30 40 41 60 61 62 63 90 91 94 210 213 214 330 341 344 351 361 362 363 364 365 370 401 (402?) 403 404* 405 411 412 (413?) 415 416 432 433 (435?) 480 503

OTOH, if there's an "away from the main drag" convention in place here, these routes may need their point order reversed:
<3A> 20 30 61 62 63 81 <100> 202 203 211 220 221 239 301 330 360 406 407 431 460

Nota bene: some routes are included on both of the above lists.

Don't know if N/S or E/W; not gonna split hairs:
21 201 214 222 450 510

*NL404 may also want NL1_W & NL2_E labels

NL510:

+X284238 can be safely deleted

Also, looks like there might've been a significant recent reroute between Pinware and Red Bay.
+X841426 and +X289717 are quite far from the route as shown in Mapnik, HERE, and Google Maps, though not Bing Map or Esri. If Mapnik, etc. accurately depict NL 510's current routing in the area, removing +X841426 and +X289717, and a southwesterly tweak of +X442854, would do the trick.

I had thought, from my 2011 trip to Labrador, that there might be another reroute somewhere between L'Anse au Loup and West St. Modeste (that's what prompted me to look at NL 510). But apparently no such reroute has happened.

NL480:
shaping point needed between +X713425 & +X909597
+X940054 & +X691228 can be safely deleted

Also, ParPl => ParkPl.

Point Order
I believe I just sort of made them and chose whichever way felt best. I've gone with the grid system as that's the standard in North America, but the system is probably more of a hub-and-spoke or stem-and-leaf arrangement (but it really doesn't matter which end comes first as long as its not random within a system).

I've made all the above changes, so I believe it's just the 'Old Routes' left to check.

Thanks for making the changes.
I had still planned on continuing with a more in-depth peer review, but Real Life & other things got in the way for a bit. I can hopefully get back to it soon...
 • correct extent / termini (GIS) (I have made note in a TXT file of a couplefew issues here)
 • waypoint positioning, naming, density
 • Visible Distance
 • "Main Road" labels
 • Old Routes including TCHMai
