Hi all,

I posted to the West Midlands list in April (and a reply was CC'd here)
regarding some tools I've developed for visualising Food Hygiene Rating
Scheme (FHRS) and OSM data, finding possible matches between it and
importing useful tags into JOSM.

I have now set up these tools on the dev server to provide comparison
maps and statistics for the whole of Great Britain. They should be
updated weekly. Just go to [http://gregrs.dev.openstreetmap.org/fhrs/]
and select a district.

I think the FHRS data is a useful source of postcodes and addresses, and
it can also be a helpful reminder of local establishments to add to the
map. It is my hope that these tools could help us to efficiently add and
verify data in our local areas. Please do have a look at the link above.

If anyone would like to improve or re-use parts of the code, it's
available on GitHub: [https://github.com/gregrs-uk/python-fhrs-osm]
