Object Detection Request -- Railroads

Thanks to Mapillary, I’ve noticed our local DOT is lacking a lot of warning signs for railroad crossings. It’s painfully common for one way, let’s say northbound, to have them but missing coming the other ( southbound ).

Is there a way I can use of the object detection for rail tracks to show me all the grade crossings in Jacksonville, FL? Would this be part of the developer API?

I’ve also noticed that the traffic sign detection isn’t quite picking up on the crossbucks. All active crossings should have crossbucks.

Looking at a different xing in “object view”, it looks like y’ll are picking up the xbucks and - just as important, that lil’ blue sign for emergencies.

If we could get that sorted out, we could find xings that are lacking:

a) one or more crossbucks
b) blue safety signs
c) one or more yellow xing warning signs
d) ?

One way to get railway crossings is to use OpenStreetMap data on them.

Using Overpass Turbo:

Thank you. I didn’t even think of all the other options. I’ll give it a try.
