Blogger Justin Palmer  moved to Portland, OR after a childhood spent in rural Tennessee because of the access and availability that the city offered.

The two requirements he was filtering for in addition to being in a more spacious part of town was foot access to grocery shopping and quick access to a rail line.

Palmer was able to use a toolset including GDAL and PostGIS as well as styling tool Tilemill. The original post provides a solid and interesting walk through of his process.
