Well we can setup a testing environment - the best way to do that is to 
get it into git somewhere as the test setups on the dev server are 
driven from git repos.

Technically speaking there are some minor issues I would look to have 
addressed in that code before I considered merging it.

Design wise we would need to think about how this behaviour should be 
triggered as currently it looks like you are capturing every click on 
the map which doesn't sound like it would be a reasonable thing to do.

The big issue here as regards deployment however is going to be that we 
would normally want, for operational reasons, to have this running off 
an instance of overpass that was running on our servers. We'd also need 
to discuss issues of scalability and what resources such an api might 
need before being exposed on the home page.

None of this is a barrier to a test deployment however, so feel free to 
put this in a git repo somewhere and give me repo url and branch name.
