[OSM-talk] magical road detector to play with

Steve,

Another thing that Bing can help us with is determining address ranges
of roads. For example, when you spider the web and find references to
5, 20 and 48 Lion Street, Pretoria, then it may help the user who is
mapping that street. Perhaps it's a cul de sac and now he doesn't need
to travel all the way down it to see where the range ends.

A little bit of care will be needed to suppress databases that may be
legally protected. But I can't see any problem if you extract 1
address per website.

Regards,
Nic
