Blocks downtown are not uniformly segmented at 100 addresses per block

Reported by onyxfish | May 7th, 2010 @ 04:43 PM | in Hot demo

E.g. The "100" block of N. State is actually four segments.

According to Joe are in most cases 800 address #'s to a mile in Chicago. I need to summarize groups of line segments and then use the median point for the entire group--OR allow blocks that don't begin at even hundreds.

Idea: Whenever encountering a "block" (n / 100 * 100) which already exists, append the line-segment to the existing one, find the new median, and write both the segment and the new median point back to the database.
