Summary0000278: Straight line on map
DescriptionRiver Wey. Route - Stoke Lock to Dapdune Wharf (but the issue occurs on longer routes too). The mapped route doesn't follow the river north of the A3. Maybe it needs some more WEYpoints, if you'll pardon the pun?

I can get the same result on my Android phone and Windows tablet.
Steps To ReproducePlan journey Stoke Lock No. 5 to Dapdune Wharf.

Lots of waypoints on the route.

I suspect its something to do with an underlying link in the data. So I'll assign it to Nick for investigation


Nick Atty (administrator)

Normally intermediate marker places aren't used when plotting route maps to keep the sheer volume down to manageable numbers (there are 3.6 times as many marker places as places in total, and on some waterways - including the Wey - many times more).

There should be a nudge that when the route is short shows them - it doesn't seem to be working.

You can see the difference if you go to preferences/exclusions/types of place and turn off the exclude for route plans, then replan the route. Lots and lots of markers and the route follows the river.

Will work out why it's not showing markers on the maps for short routes (which also applies for some days in longer routes)


Nick Atty (administrator)

That code had never been written! I've fixed thing with a fairly arbitrary check for the number of places being displayed which seems to work in most circumstances.

Closing automatically, stayed too long in feedback state. Feel free to re-open with additional information if you think the issue is not resolved.
