Here are some of the scripts we use to create http://www.frankfurt-gestalten.de. Have fun playing around with em.
A script to get objects from cloudmade in a specified area. Cloudmade renders maps from openstreetmap.org and provides a API to access. With the default setting the script searches in a area around and including Frankfurt. You can alter the searched area within the script
A script to retrieve the next dates and locations for the hazardous substances collecting vehicle. This is service of the FES in Frankfurt.
This script needs one or more object_types as arguments. The possible object_types can be obtained from http://developers.cloudmade.com/wiki/geocoding-http-api/Object_Types The output is formatted like a csv-file would be. Feel free to pipe the output into a file.
This scripts needs no arguments. The output is formatted like a .ics-file.
You have any questions left? Feel free to ask.
The sripts are delivered "as is" without any warranty.
