  • What're your country's best train stations? | 2021-04-14
    Another interesting one is Zidani Most. The building is nothing special, and it is kind of funny, that the 2nd most important station in Slovenia is located in a village of like 300 people, but it is positioned on the confluence of two rivers,which makes it quite interesting. (

    If you're not sure where to walk, use as it has all walking paths highlighted in red and blue. Or alternatively download viewranger app which works really good with GPS location and showing walking paths. It's really hard to get lost there, so you should be fine.
  • Where to scrape street address (Suite No, street name, street number, city) for addressable geofencing App?
    If you can find a free API that suites your needs I would go for that. (Maybe something like: It's a lot less hassle and more efficient. You get your data in a structured format and you don't have to worry about scarping anything. Otherwise, has a very large database which you can download from, but I don't know if it has all the information you need.

    Schau mal bei Openstreetmap und schalte auf den CyclOSM layer:
  • British cities are greatly expanding their cycling infrastructure - Graph [OC]
    Technical details: OpenStreetMap (OSM) is an open source map website ran by user contributions, like wikipedia. I used the OSM query service Overpass to collect data on the length of bike lanes over time for a selection of British cities, and compared it to some European capitals. I would not advise doing this as the Overpass API is not designed to handle 100s of requests, especially ones that query 'attic data' (i.e. old versions of the map), so it took 48+ hours to collect it all.
  • Dogless running routes | 2021-04-11
    A guess, how about dedicated running tracks? e.g. Palmer Park Stadium
  • How do you find bike paths?
    Open Steet Map has two layers with bicycle paths shown. Both Ride With GPS and Komoot use OSM data for routing.

  • Where does Google get its data from for bike paths?
    Also copy from open street map has much better data, probably because it's mostly user submitted
  • is this how to access the path towards pill?(mentioned in a post 3 days ago) thanks! also if anyone else could let me know of places like these for nice walks, that would be very kind of you! | 2021-04-09
    From the top that's it yes, turn right after the bridge and drop into Leigh Woods and down Nightingale Valley. It ends on a little archway to the path at the bottom. You may see the paths better on OSM. It is quite a long path that sticks to the river after that but you can't go too far wrong, it is a bit muddy in places. I've never gone the other way via Burwall's Wood but it is quite far in the wrong direction.
  • I'm looking for a good paper map that includes more than just basic main roads. | 2021-04-08
    For offline maps and printing your own maps I can really recommend OpenStreetMap. It is probably the most detailed map that also includes hiking routes you can get for free on the internet. Please note that OpenStreetMap is not just one "official" map but it is like a database that allows differently rendered maps, which is used for various different applications and services
