Have you ever thought β€œGee I wonder if you took data, and coloured the image based on the distance to the nearest building?”

No? What kind of person _are_ you? πŸ˜›

@rory neat. Do you have the code for this? Is it easy to do?

@bluss The hardest part (for me as a programmer) is figuring out what to map, and colours, and areas 🀣 And then figureing out gdal command lines.

Code is here git.sr.ht/~ebel/osm-ie-buildin for now, but I'll make it better.

I started with git.sr.ht/~ebel/osm-summary-he

@bluss I'm happy to answer any questions you have about how to do this. In general, or how this weird abstracted pile of Makefiles work. πŸ™‚

@rory Woah this is pretty rad! Definitely highlights some coverage hotspots - I checked in on the map and Massachusetts has very thorough coverage of pretty much every house, same with western New York. I just mapped a little subdivision just across the border from MA in eastern New York to even out the score just a little :)

Always wanted to do that. Did you build tooling for this and can it easily be done for Europe?

@kaputse I'm trying to do Europe now, but I don't have enough RAM! 😭

@rory πŸ˜‚β€‹

Germany would be enough for me for the start πŸ˜‡β€‹

Great ! Can we have something like this for Europe ?

@wend I'm trying to do Europe now, but I don't have enough RAM! 😭

Oh. Maybe split it up in north and south europe.

@rory I see a redspot in my rural town of #PeruIndiana so look like I need to crack down and get some of these buildings mapped ;)
