Linear High Street Maps

This is an experimental tool that is designed to produce linear maps depicting the shops and businesses along the length a single street. There are two key purposes:

Streets currently in the tool are linked below. At the moment, new localities and streets have to be added manually by me. Please get in touch if you would like to help test the tool on a street near you. Printing using Firefox does not seem to handle the vertical positioning correctly. I would suggest using Chrome instead. Printing from Chrome, with two pages per A4 page at about 130% scaling seems to work well for me.

Inclusion Criteria

OSM objects are included as POIs in the linear map if (and only if) they meet all the following criteria:

These criteria are designed to include only businesses that lie on the street in question.

Also included are any other OSM objects within the buffer distance that have a matching addr:street tag, and at least one of addr:housename or addr:housenumber, and don't match an address already present on a POI. This is designed to capture private houses between businesses on the street. Such objects are indicated by a "⌂" symbol.
