active Vector Road Clarification

Recommended Posts

I am trying to understand the differences between the various road types, major, secondary & tertiary.


My understanding was major was highway (like Interstate 80).  Or maybe even an undivided highway like Highway 101 in CA.

Secondary - Main roads in a city, rural highways.

Tertiary - Roads in a subdivision, smaller roads in a city.


I think this is not accurately understood on my part because in any subdivision the roads seem random so I wonder if someone can explain this a bit better for me.  thanks.
