I'd like to float the following ideas for quarterly projects, and see what
folk think.

* GLAMs - Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums. As with schools we
could turn points into ploygons, add names, URLs, street addresses,
Wikidata items, and other info.

* Blue lights - police, fire and ambulance stations, and associated
infrastructure. Including fire hydrants!

* Public art - location, artist, material; also Wikidata - could be
combined with http://pigsonthewing.org.uk/public-art-wikipedia/

* Shops - even where mapped, these soon fall out-of-date.

* Vets - maybe not enough to do on their own. Combine with shops?
* Pubs, bars & other licensed premises - see
https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2016/oct/21/worlds-longest-pub-crawl-maths-team-plots-route-between-every-pub-in-uk
for inspiration. Also breweries.

* Public toilets - follows nicely from the previous suggestion! Maybe in
collaboration with https://greatbritishpublictoiletmap.rca.ac.uk/

* FixMe & Notes - let's clear the backlog!

What are your thoughts?
