The end is in sight! Although Laura got bored and stopped coming out mapping with me, Benjamin likes a bike ride (in his trailer), so although it is exhausting, we are making progress on Sunday mornings. Southern Hartlepool is now complete, and the vast majority of Northern Hartlepool is too - just Clavering left!
As Benjamin and I have cycled most of the roads on the map, I will have to work out how many kilometers we have cycled to complete the map...
According to my OSM database of Hartlepool, the town currently (14 Feb 2010) contains the following total lengths of roads etc. (rounded to nearest km):
- Motorways - 0 km (correct)
- Trunk - 21 km (this is because someone has shown the A689 as Trunk)
- Primary - 66 km
- Secondary - 14 km
- Tertiary - 75 km
- Unclassified - 99 km
- Residential - 277 km
- Total Roads - 553 km
In addition there are 9km of tracks, 48 km of cycleways and 57 km of footways.
These look reasonable to me, but I am surprised at how big the totals are for cycleways and footways - I think I must have included some of the Hart-Haswell Cycleway to get this total, plus there is a long route along the sea front.
The SQL required to calculate the total is:
select sum(st_length(way))/1000 as total_roads from planet_osm_line where highway='motorway' or highway='motorway_link' or highway='trunk' or highway='trunk_link' or highway ='primary' or highway='primary_link' or highway='secondary' or highway='tertiary' or highway='unclassified' or highway='service' or highway='residential';
The map that produced these totals can be seen at http://www.townguide.webhop.net/output/80/townguide_poster.pdf.
