You may have heard or seen or read in the news over the past couple of days about a new initiative to map defibrillators in the UK led by the British Heart Foundation, the NHS and Microsoft. I've just the sent the following email as a Director od OpensSTreetMapUK to the contact at BHF.(there are links in the original email but the formatting curse has struck me)
I'm interested to find out more about your project which has been prominently featured in the news over the past few days and how the volunteer-led project to map the world, OpenStreetMap, can be involved as we have already have 1700 defibrillators mapped by volunteers in the UK and specifically 45 in one of your pilot areas, the West Midlands. We have mapped these via a combination of survey and past FOI requests to Ambulance Services
We have a website for volunteers to co-ordinate their efforts.
I look forward to discussing how you can take advantage of our work to date
