This might be a bit cheeky, I don't know but would anyone fancy
collecting some payphone data for the Payphone DB project while out
OpenStreetMaping at the weekend?
The website is at: http://payphonedb.bobsbasement.co.uk/ and the info
we're after is the stuff on this form:
I've started to add some London ones so there is some data in there that
gives an example.
It isn't essential to get everything as anyone can edit the records
(it's a bit of an OSM/wikipedia for payphones).
I would like very much though if people can get the postcode (the
address is printed on a lable inside the payphone on the BT ones, though
occasionaly it is absent/rubbed off), the GPS coordinates and the phone
number (as it's the key field) as this allows us to:
a) Submit the postcode and GPS data to www.freethepostcode.org
b) Submit the payphone location onto the OSM
c) Any other funky thing that we find to do with the data
Any problems with the DB, please let me know.
