I haven't heard anyone use Seghedin in my area (and I live 100 km from Szeged). Everybody just says Szeged. Even on road signs it's posted Szeged, not Seghedin. But still, it's quite close to the original name, compared with Pozsony or Becs.

Another example: Romanian town of Oradea = Nagyvárad (Hungarian), Großwardein (Deutsch) Vel'ký Varadín (Slovak), Varat (Turkish), Gran Varadino (Italian), Magnovaradinum (Latin) and אורדאה (Hebrew).

Not that much: ancient name "Florentia" is uncommon but not unknown

Chris, a question for you if you don't mind

A friend of mine is applying for the Erasmus student exchange programme and she considers choosing the Hogeschool Windesheim in Zwolle as her first-choice university. Can you say anything about the school, the student life in Zwolle, the pros and cons of spending half a year in this city? Any good advices?

I studied traffic engineering at Windesheim 7 years ago. The school has changed a lot since then, a lot of modernizations, so I'm not sure how it is today. Considering the large growth in students there (over 15,000 now), I'm sure it's a good school. The student life in Zwolle is quite good, the historic city center is loaded with bars and pubs and they are usually full of people (sometimes crowded). Another upside of Zwolle is that student housing is generally much cheaper than in the western cities.

Spanish national motorways are now avalaible to map at the Clinched Highways Mapping! I'm winning by far, 3715 kilometers vs 2.3 of Chris. What I don't understand why they aren't included the A-1 in the Basque Country (Which is still signed as N-I)

I don't like the way Clinched Highways work. Too cumbersome to fill in the data.

It's not that hard after you get used to it. The only thing I don't like is their cliched highways map.

Suburbanist is right, I asked them if there is a chance they modify the data handling method, but they said that an interactive form or something like that involves more number crunching than they are allowed by their provider.

About the map, yes it is terrible, but I think they are working on it.

I also don't like the fact that they introduced a section for European Roads, which overlap in most cases some motorways. Do you know if they count it twice or just once?

I don't like that either. However they count them only once when E roads and motorways overlap.

It's in miles, not kilometers. I'm really impressed by the stats of bova61, he has reached almost all countries in the list and covered lots of km of motorway in Europe. The first users are from US, they are taking advantage that you can introduce also county roads there. I also uploaded my file tonight, I'm waiting to see the results
