Have you ever thought “Gee I wonder if you took #OpenStreetMap data, and coloured the image based on the distance to the nearest building?”
No? What kind of person _are_ you? 😛
(red=0→1km, orange=1→2km, yellow=2→5km,green=5→50km, blue=>50km)
@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 https://git.sr.ht/~ebel/osm-ie-building-rasters for now, but I'll make it better.
I started with https://git.sr.ht/~ebel/osm-summary-heatmap
@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. 🙂
@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 :)
