My new hobby: Adding public drinking fountains (and toilets, but it's mostly fountains that are missing so far) to #OpenStreetMap. This is so important for people to find, but still so few are marked in #OSM. At least here in Norway. It's a shame, really. And the hotter the climate gets, the more important it will become. @openstreetmap
@openstreetmap Want to help me find apps that helps you find public drinking fountains? https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Tag:amenity%3Ddrinking_water#Apps
You can search for specific features, and searching for drinking water or toilets on the map gets me these:
@nigel @forteller @openstreetmap
Back from Paris during a severe heat wave, I would like to thank:
- La Ville de Paris for maintaining a network of public fountains with drinking water
- all the #OpenStreetMap contributors who added them to OSM
- #OSMand developer(s?) for the quick way to display and access them when they were REALLY needed.
Probably saved me from heatstroke once or twice.
@forteller Yes, that would be very useful. Good job!
