    Yeah, Mapzen's geocoder (which turns addresses into Lat / Lon) definitely still needs work.

    Unhappy

    not sure if Chrome problem, something local to my setup, or something on the dcbm end, but I'm not actually getting any directions--I can enter addresses and set parameters, and it finds the endpoints, but doesn't seem to make any attempt to figure out how to get from one to the other, nor do I see any sort of [MAKE IT SO!] button to make it go.

    (fwiw, i use uBlock Origin, but it says nothing's being blocked...)

    Unfortunately MapZen, who provided my turn-by-turn directions has gone out of business and I haven't had time to update the site with a new provider.

    Two things:

    1) The main dcbikemap.com has been updated with working turn-by-turn directions.
    2) I've pulled fresh cuts of data from the jurisdictions for a new version of dcbikemap. Anybody willing to scroll around and do some spot checking? I've got an e-mail in to Alexandria because their data is wildly out of date.

    Draft new version: http://dcbikemap.com/2.html

    Ugh. I have also reached out to Fairfax County who appears to have stopped providing bike lane info in their bike routes GIS layer.

    Looks like some DC stuff is missing, too. At a glance, new sharrows on Kennedy St NW, bike lanes on Grant & Sherman Circles, new lanes near DC United stadium...

    To some extent there's just always going to be a lag. It's not anybody's priority to update their GIS the moment new bike infrastructure gets striped. I added Arlington's Quincy Street lanes myself and noticed the Wilson Blvd extension isn't in there yet. Mostly I'm looking for some obvious massive problem like "all of Fairfax County's bike lanes are missing"

    Quite the lag - some of the DC changes that have been in place for more than a year aren't showing up yet, such as M St. NE by the REI/4th NE connecting to Union Market (of course I'd look for that one first - they were installed summer 2017).

    Question that probably falls under the "more trouble than it's worth": does the data coming from DC specifically delineate cases like G or I Streets NE where there's a contraflow bike lane with a sharrow in the main travel lane? Right now, they show just as "bike lane" on the map, similar to how the printed map is.

    Actually it does. DC is the only jurisdiction that is good about doing this. If someone has a suggested for a intuitive way to show it, I have the information to do so.

    I also know in Arlington "bike lane" vs "buffered bike lane" but I'm not currently showing that distinction either.

    But does that one matter?
