Do we really have to resort to pushing traffic to google which then gets
linked to other google services?

I don't find wikidata any more practical for this sort of material, but
it does at least seem a little more sensible for producing an index of
data items and knowing just how bad some of the official lists are at
providing a clean and electronically usable list of that data, this
could be a good data set to produce a set of standards which can then be
applied to other data sets. A cover page on wikidata with the current
totals, and linking through to an index of individual schools.

Once again, the OSM data should only provide graphical details along
with a link to the more data related material in another media and in
the absence of a more obvious alternative, wikidata seems to be the
current option. Unless someone can identify another more suitable mechanism?
