OpenStreetMap, no dead ends!

I enjoy wandering around the countryside – also without planned route. Would be nice to mark roads, which are less interesting than others? For example, all dead-ends, and in general cut edges of the road graph.

Good that we have OpenStreetMap with open data and tools. I have created software to pre-render a given region (not too large one) with all cut edges marked. This is how it looks like, marking with thick blue dashed line:

Storing and providing OpenStreetMap tiles requires a lot of disk space and bandwidth, so for now I only rendered small regions as a proof-of-concept. Welcome to peep at the maps!
