Answers to: what is the location of the point located at distance x from a given point on a streethttps://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/70126/what-is-the-location-of-the-point-located-at-distance-x-from-a-given-point-on-a-street<p>Hello, I am trying to set a number of bus stations that are equally distributed on a given street. so is there any way that I can use to find the point that is m meters far away from a given point on a given street?</p>enFri, 19 Jul 2019 05:33:29 +0100Comment by maj308 on maj308's questionhttps://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/70126/what-is-the-location-of-the-point-located-at-distance-x-from-a-given-point-on-a-street#70132<p>they are fictional, I made them just to test an algorithm</p>maj308Fri, 19 Jul 2019 05:33:29 +0100https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/70126/what-is-the-location-of-the-point-located-at-distance-x-from-a-given-point-on-a-street#70132Answer by andy mackeyhttps://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/70126/what-is-the-location-of-the-point-located-at-distance-x-from-a-given-point-on-a-street/70128<p>I have just tried out iD. It as a distance scale, on the zoom level that i looked at the scale was 30 metres you could estimate from that scale. Using Potlatch2 you can display the mouse co-ords top right there's a box to tic. It would need maths for various latitudes and longitudes to see what small fraction of a degree equals in metres. JOSM has measuring and angle tools so should be the easiest solution. Another idea, if you measure the width of the road by paces for example then compare it to the Aerial and estimate your 30 meters from that. </p>andy mackeyThu, 18 Jul 2019 20:17:05 +0100https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/70126/what-is-the-location-of-the-point-located-at-distance-x-from-a-given-point-on-a-street/70128Comment by alester on maj308's questionhttps://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/70126/what-is-the-location-of-the-point-located-at-distance-x-from-a-given-point-on-a-street#70127<p>Are these real bus stops/stations, or fictional ones in offline data? Real bus stops would almost never be exactly the same distance apart due to variations in road design, topography, demand, etc.</p>alesterThu, 18 Jul 2019 19:56:01 +0100https://help.openstreetmap.org/questions/70126/what-is-the-location-of-the-point-located-at-distance-x-from-a-given-point-on-a-street#70127
