Quote from: Icaticus on August 11, 2009, 02:14:29 AMThe algorithm for auto-naming would probably work easiest as a *if road is continuous (meaning it does not jog) AND has same positioning (horizontal or vertical: I know its more of an X but this is simplistic for explanation) than naming continues same as previous. If connection is crossing than naming will be X and Y with X being the north to south road and Y being east to west, example Gardenia Drive and 1st Street.

There has to be some sort of identifier that would work in place of the naming/numbering mechanism the majority of the urban world utilize.
