Streets Close to Completion Category

I think adding a third category into some of the views on CityStrides would be a welcome one, and based on what I’ve seen and read about how the site is set up, I think fairly easy to implement.

When looking at a particular city, you can already view Incomplete and Complete streets. I think it would be great to have a third category that shows you just the streets that are very close, say ones that you’ve hit 90% of the nodes.

Hopefully this idea hasn’t been suggested already…

Hi @m.george.brown89, this is definitely a unique idea, I’ve never heard mention of it on the forum before :smiley:

Regarding the 90% metric, see this article about street data, in particular this section below:

Speaking personally, I’m not out to get the ‘next easiest street’, and wouldn’t find that list useful. I tackle my city outwards from my home, and decide where to go next based just on coverage, not finding the low hanging fruit.

Would you use a feature like this to plan where to go next based on those streets, or is it more just for interest?

Exactly what I am doing. In the past I did not consider length or nodes, but lately decided I should do at least a little node recon. Why? I missed completing streets because I did not cross the street to get the node (guess it was just outside the 25m range) on the other side.

Sounds like a good joke, well a joke anyways… Why did the CityStrider cross the street? To get the node on the other side. Ba bump!

@davemorin, I guess what I meant then was 90% of whatever is required to call a street “complete.” Or 80% or whatever. But yes, I would probably go for those streets first when planning my routes.

Cool that makes sense. Probably not an impossible task for Jim to do as you said above if there’s enough interest from users (although I know for the moment focus is on tackling the syncing issues!)

This is my top request. I’d love to be able to sort/filter my incomplete streets by % completed.
