comment How do you say "I live in" in German?
It would certainly be understood either way. I guess the problem is that the preposition to be used differs with the street name, e.g. "an der Straße" vs. "am Weg" vs. "an der Stiege" vs. "in (?) der Twiete" (I live in Hamburg ;-) ), so there is no one right preposition that catches them all. So for me, it's entirely possible that different regions use different prepositions. Unfortunately, the Atlas zur Deutschen Alltagssprache doesn't say anything about that.

I'm not sure about the usage "am Feldweg 3" as opposed to "im Feldweg 3" or even "Feldweg 3" without any preposition (see jera's answer). Could it be a regional thing?

comment What is the difference in usage between “Möhre” and “Karotte”?
obligatory upvote for citing "Atlas zur Deutschen Alltagssprache" :-)

comment Reachability map generator?
My latest attempt was a combination of How far can I travel (HFCIT) and Google Earth. HFCIT accepts one starting point and a max travel time, so I used it four times and each time then exported a KML file that I fed into Google Earth to get a visual overlap. As a workaround, this works OK, although with 4 layers of different color, it gets pretty hard to identify the overlap area. The bigger problem though is the low quality of the data that HFCIT generates in the first place - if anyone knows a better tool for this, let me know :-)
