The following is a list of known data issues

Known issues

  1. CVU and IVLA datasets are not a true road network. There are dangling ends (definition?) and long edges that need to be split at intersections with other edges.
    1. See detailed analysis here:
  1. CVU and IVLA datasets are riddled with overlapping edges. IVLA and CVU datasets have approximately 20,903 and 1,199 cases of two edges overlapping, respectively.
    1. Many of these edges have different road attributes (name, road type, etc)

i. Some could have totally different attributes

ii. Some could have the same name but different road type

  1. There are some edges that are overlapped by more than 1 edge.
  2. See detailed analysis here:
  3. CVU and IVLA geometries sometimes do not reflect reality.
    1. Example: Roundabout in reality, but intersection is highly generalized (“+” intersection)
    2. Example: Divided/dual-carriageway road in reality, but road is digitized as single-carriageway
  1. All three INEGI datasets have been released at different times. Sometimes you would find roads in the IVLA dataset that are not in the CVU dataset, and vice-versa.

ALL IVLA and CVU cases to visualize in JOSM can be found on the following directory:

All test cases can be found here:
