Surely that is where the benefit of a community really helps. With
government data keeping up to date then we should be able to track the
changes quite easily, georeference the address in order to calculate the
rough location and then ask our local mappers to help with on the ground
surveys. A nice simple QA tool would be of huge benefit if anyone is up for
the challenge :-)

The surveys will require a large number of engaged mappers spread over the
country. If we struggle then it reinforces the ambition of the new
OpenStreetMap UK group. The quote about "a mapper in every town" springs to
mind again!


>At a time of great policy change like this, it would be hard to get every
single school in the UK mapped, but I could try for my local area.
>Usually, new schools open in September and old ones close in July, which
might help.
