Street stats

@JamesChevalier, I wonder if you could provide us with some stats on streets? Examples: which street is most run, which most completed, which has the most nodes. If it is too much trouble, don’t bother, it is just that I am a stat freak.

If you mean just in general (ie regardless if anyone on CS has run it), that could probably be pulled from OSM. Although most nodes is a bit of misleading stat to use. A lot of nodes doesn’t necessarily mean the longest street. Someone may have just gone node-happy when editing the street or it could be really curvy so it requires more nodes for accuracy.

Counting nodes on a street relation in OSM doesn’t say anything. I have a curvy road of say 500 meters, i need 10s of nodes to visualize that in OSM. But a perfect straight road of say 4km could do with 2 or 3 nodes.

I’ll put this here to see if there is any comments.
[Tanami Road in Central Desert Region, Northern Territory - CityStrides]
Tanami Road
This “street” has 1311 nodes and is over 560km long.
No one has completed it yet, maybe I should put it on my wish list.
I’m not too worried about the 560km but a little concerned on getting back to pick my car up :rofl:.

@glenn_hall Wowzers!! And it looks like the actual road continues for a similar distance into WA!

I suggest you park your car in the middle, then it’s only 280km back at the finish.
