Waze Map Editor (WME) extension providing context-sensitive access to road/area name data extracted from the OS OpenData products. Also provides geo-referenced links to the OS, Musical Chairs and one.network mapping sites, which can be set to automatically update as the user pans/zooms within WME.
Please note that at present, OS OpenData only covers England, Scotland and Wales.

2.6 (20140629) Cached locator data blocks now expire 10 minutes after they are last accessed - for editors who move around the UK map a lot during a single edit session, this should help minimise the memory used by their browser.

1.36 (20130914) Adds auto-tracking support for the Canary Islands mapping site (visor.grafcan.es - requires installation of CMT support script). Disables area-specific parts of the UI when WME is outside of those areas.
1.35 (20130820) Bounding box highlight now visible on top of satellite imagery layer in new production WME.
1.34 (20130716) Support for latest WME beta. No longer mis-abbreviates street names of the form "Something LooksLikeAStreetNameSuffix Way" (e.g. Wibble Green Way no longer gets changed to Wibble Gn Way...)
1.33.1 (20130529) Prefixed all function and globvar names to avoid name collisions with other scripts...
1.33 (20130522) Fix for wazeifyStreetName() function, allowing it to correctly abbreviate street names like "High Road Somewhere", which would previously have been left untouched.

1.28 (20130502) NameCheck subjected to several days of in-depth performance analysis in Firefox and Chrome. The results of this work should be fairly obvious to anyone who's used NameCheck in the past, especially in densely populated areas (e.g. central London)...
1.27 (20130427) Fix for incorrect "Place name is not in OS data" gazetteer search results.
1.26 (20130410) NameCheck no longer continues to highlight segments that have been correctly renamed but not yet saved.
1.25 (20130409) Compatibility update for new public and beta versions of WME. All roman numerals found in OS Locator data should now be case-correct...
1.24 (20130403) NameCheck now ignores ramps, and handles (N)/(S)/etc direction suffixes. Auto-selection of OS placename now works if the previously used name was the extra city entry added to the drop-down list. No longer case-incorrects "IV" and "VI" roman numerals in street names...
1.23 (20130403) NameCheck no longer causes deadlock during lengthy save operations.

1.16 (20130130) Disables the Copy/Apply to Properties button if no segments are selected, or if any of the selected segments are locked by a higher level editor. "Place name is..." status text is now updated when the name source is changed via the radio button. Fixes a bug in the duplicate city name test, which could prevent the streetname bounding box from being rendered when a streetname was selected, until the map was panned/zoomed forcing a box redraw.
1.15.1 (20130123) Vertical scrollbar no longer appears briefly during WME page reloads.
1.15 (20130123) Adds drop-down list showing the 10 closest place names (or 11 if the top 10 doesn't include a city, but a city is present in the unlisted results) from the Gazetteer data within a 5km radius of the selected segment. Bounding box highlight is now disabled when the UI is minimised.
1.14 (20130121) Checks city names against OS Gazetteer data. Enabled operation on the new beta WME URL.
1.13 (20130117) Fixes issue with & being inserted as & amp ; when using an existing city name.
1.12 (20121210) Maintains city name selection in drop-down list if the previously selected name is still present after a list refresh. Now applies the same 1km rule to continued use of a city name selected from the drop-down list as is used for the manually-entered name.
1.11 (20121209) Adds drop-down list allowing city name selection from the names already defined in the current WME view. If a new segment is selected and the same street name is present in the search results as was applied to the last edited segment, this name will be pre-selected for use with this new segment. Added sanity-checking for saved window location to prevent it being rendered completely off-screen when WME was reloaded. Removed errant bit of debug code preventing script from running in latest WME beta.
1.10 (20121205) Allows dragging to continue if mouse pointer moves outside the dragbar during a drag. Bumps window position up the screen when maximising if the maximised window wouldn't completely fit onto the screen at its current position. Saves window position between editing sessions.
1.9 (20121204) Fixes tab focus issue in Chrome when auto-tracking is enabled. Added mimimise/maximise control to dragbar allowing window to be folded up for storage...
1.8 (20121202) Script interface is now presented in a draggable window. Will now perform a new lookup if user normal-clicks on a segment (i.e. not a ctrl-click to add the segment to the existing selection)
1.7 (20121116) Permalink now copied into links area, retaining the original in the lower-right corner. Highlights adjacent results with the same streetname as the selected result. Auto-selects the "Use new name" radio button when typing in the name field. Uses the November 2012 OS Locator dataset.
1.6 (20121114) Fixed the "scrollbar-bounce" problem in Chrome. OS results now show the ward/locality for each street. Moved the permalink into the links area on the left of the map window. Street names starting "St " are now converted to "St. ".
1.5.2 (20121105) Fixed for new public and beta WME versions
1.5.1 (20121105) Results popup can now be reopened correctly after a copy/apply operation
1.5 (20121105) Links to OpenData and Musical Chairs sites now visible in new WME beta. Replaced mouseover event with a [show] link to open results list.
1.4 (20121104) Streetname matching uses a new sorting method, increasing the probability that the first name in the list is the correct one...
1.3 (20121101) As an early Chrimbo present to myself I've obtained a SSL certificate for my server, which means the OS data can now be served up from a https: link, preventing Chrome from complaining about how hideously insecure WME had become with the script installed... Also fixes the upper/lowercase issue with Welsh streetnames containing -y- and -yr-
1.2.1 (20121014) Locator results popup behaviour now uses a hybrid of the auto and manually controlled schemes, to avoid the odd situations where the minimise and maximise functions got into a loop... Popup now maximises on mouseover, but will only minimise either by clicking the [hide] link or by clicking the Copy to/Apply to button.
1.2 (20121014) Moved Copy to Properties button to top of UI after realising this was where my mouse pointer was more often than not at the point I wanted to click the button... For editors at AM level or above, the button has been renamed to Apply to Properties, as clicking the Apply button manually is no longer required.
1.1 (20121013) Locator results box is now minimised by default in the non-beta WME as well, due to the new Colour Highlights script requiring more space for its own UI... In both beta and non-beta versions, the results box now pops-up on mouseover, rather than via the hide/show links in v1.0
1.0 (20121012) Fixed minor bug that prevented a newly entered city name being copied into the segment properties the first time the Copy to Properties button was clicked. Added support for the beta version of WME
0.9.4 (20121004) increased transparency of bounding box, to improve appearance with latest version of WME Colour Highlights and to make aerial layer easier to see through the box
0.9.3 (20120922) street name abbreviations tweak, improved city name selection
0.9.2 (20120917) removed Cartouche link
0.9.1 (20120910) street name formatting tweak
