Look, I made a thing! After I saw the awesome blog post on city street orientations, I generated some charts for European and German cities (and refactored Geoff's IPython notebook into a script on the way). If you want to see a map of your favourite city in this style, tell me about it and I'll see what I can do.



@rixx hey can you do it for Rennes, if possible ?

@Siphonay @Sylvhem Forgive me for grouping the French cities in one response – here are Rennes and Toulouse:

@rixx @Sylvhem actually, if that's not too much to ask, could you produce it in a higher resolution, like 1920x1080 ?

@Siphonay @Sylvhem Sorry, since a bug in the script (well, in the OSM data really) was found, I'm currently re-rendering all the previous images, which will take a couple of hours. I'll see what I can do later – but the image of Rennes is 2271 x 1200, so you should be able to scale it down a bit and be good?

@rixx Thanks a lot! It's really interesting to see that :).
