Hello all,

         I emailed Paul E. Harvey, director of community development, 
Campbell County, Virginia, about the "named driveways" issue. He gave 
me more information about road conventions in  Virginia.
         1. I noticed that the driveway from the highway to Rustberg 
High School had a four-digit number. Harvey replied, "VDOT IVirginia 
Department of Transportation) assigns those four digit numbers to 
roads that serve public facilities like schools."
         2. Campbell County requires that any driveway that serves 
three houses or more be named. Residents choose the name, so it can 
be a family name.
         3. The named driveways that I am seeing is a different issue 
and may, indeed, be a mistake. He has asked the county's GIS 
technician to look into it.
         This kind of information makes all of our mapping better. I 
will add this to the wiki, but it would be great if this information 
were available as a pop-up or some other mechanism while people are mapping.
