[OSM-talk] Preview: national cycle network map

Initial thought is that it looks excellent.
Two suggestions spring to mind having zoomed through layers in to Richmond:
Can you make the blue and red overlays more transparent? It would be good to see more clearly what the underlying way type is - road, bridleway, footway, etc.
Secondly can you somehow filter the number of occurences of the NCN number? In Richmond Park it is obviously number 4 at all times and doesn't need all those labels.
Otherwise really encouraging. Good work.

	Hi All,
	I'll call it a preview, since there's still more on my Todo list than
	on the Done list!
	http://www.gravitystorm.co.uk/osm/  - a mapnik-based cycle layer
	Shows the UK national cycle network, and local cycle networks at
	higher zoom. Have a look at Putney, south west of central london, for
	an area with both national and local (London) cycle networks.
	I'm very interested in feedback, and I've got more plans to render
	more features and play with the rendering, but I thought I'd "release
	early" etc. I'm also keen to know if there are similar cycle networks
	in the osm database for other parts of the world - if you know of
	them, please let me know where they are and I'll look at rendering
	them too.
	Feedback appreciated, positive or negative.
	PS - This takes about 5 hours to render on a modest PC, and other hour
	to transfer to my new web host. I'd strongly recommend people play
	more with Mapnik than trying to set up the entire tiles-at-home kind
	of thing, since the physical infrastructure required by mapnik is
	much, much less.
	PPS - Thanks go to Dave Stubbs (randomjunk) for his help with this.
