Are you planning to upload pole locations to OSM? The poles are of
interest to some, but I'm thinking the pole reference numbers to
lat/lon would be useful. Someone else expressed interest in emergency
phone reference numbers, so they could be used to more quickly locate
people, apparently private road ways don't need to supply this
information to government.

Do these people keep GPS tracks by any chance?
