I just plucked those figures of the air because I think that's what I
use to get all of the data for the Isle of Man (ca. 13x35miles or so).
For capitals it's probably not too bad, but as I say, I'll pull it in
to probably 5 or 10 miles radius in my next iteration of the code.
I'll try a few different ways of generating those stats as well. One
of the things I found interesting was that the number of nodes was
pretty much equal to the number of segments. I was expecting twice as
many nodes for some reason, but thinking about it, it does make sense
that they're pretty much level.
