Code for San José volunteers are organizing an import of over 14,000 
local business facilities throughout Santa Clara County, California.

Under the current COVID-19 public health order, every business owner is 
required to file a social distancing protocol (SDP) with the county's 
public health department, which maintains a public listing of SDPs. We 
crawled the listing and geocoded each business's address using a county 
address database. As works of California county government agencies, 
both the SDP listing and address database are in the public domain by law.

We plan to carefully map the geocoded business data using MapRoulette. 
Each POI will receive individual attention to refine the location and 
tags. We'll periodically update the MapRoulette project to incorporate 
newly filed SDPs and continue to maintain local POI coverage beyond the 
pandemic. For more details, please see our full proposal:


We'd appreciate any feedback about this proposal on this mailing list, 
on the wiki talk page, or in the #local-ca-sfbay channel of OSMUS Slack.

Thank you,
Minh Nguyen, on behalf of Code for San José
