I do a proximity check: however there is a problem in that legitimate 
drinking fountain spacing can be far smaller than normal GPS or air 
photo resolution.  The proximity conflation can produce false results.

It is usually impossible to pick out the fountains on even the best air 
photos (and OSM does not have the best air photos).
