I am trying to visualise some street-level data I got, but since I'm very new to GIS I don't know the correct terminology to Google. My data looks like this:
Street, Incident Count Congo Road, 12 Roydene Rd, 21 ....
Using a combination of geocoding and Leaflet.js, I managed to get something like this:
However, with geocoding I only get the geometric center of each street, so the visualisation isn't very informative. I'd like to get an image, where each street is colour-coded according to how many incidents occurred in it, e.g (excuse my poor Paint skills)
I was thinking I can use OSM to get the coordinates of each node that a street consists of, so I'd be able to represent a street as a collection of points, which would make the visualisation a bit better.
Any suggestions other? Thanks
