I'm also using stock Roadmatcher for findng standalone ways. I followed the
link you posted back then.
Roadmatcher seems to need different settings for towns than for countryside
to do the best job.
Here's a sample of standalone roads near Port Stanley Ontario
My files are created by geobase2osm.py with a bounding rectangle
homebrew AbInitio script [a proprietary ETL program] to download the same
area from osm, and make osm.jml geobase.jml.
roadmatcher.bat and exportresult.bat from stock Roadmatcher
homebrew AbInitio script including shp2text to get nrn_id and srcstate
which is used to filter out nodes and ways from the original geobase.osm
I notice that short streets at right angles to existing streets are missing
from my standalone file. Some county roads and a stretch of 401 are
duplicated. It looks pretty easy to clean up and stitch together.
I too am looking for ideas to help with the larger problem of applying
nrn_id to the rather-well-populated Ontario map.
