Thanks for this! I haven't had time to look into them but I am eager
to start working with them. These will be helpful for the Essen hack
weekend as well!

I haven't really looked into it, but would it be straightforward to
make an Amsterdam extract using your script? When doing analyses it
helps to work with an area you know - at least being able to compare
to an area you know.

Thanks again
