Robert W's comparison tool now includes schools in Northern Ireland. Looks
like it could do with some work as current progress is at 18.8%.

Comparison tool: http://robert.mathmos.net/osm/schools/progress/
More info: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/UK_Quarterly_Projects
Tag for including official reference numbers: ref:deniirn=* (note the
double i - stands for Department for Education Northern Ireland -
Institution Ref Number).

> 3. Northern Ireland data
> I have downloaded a snapshot of Northern Ireland "schools plus" data from
> 2016-01-12 and asked Robert to add it to his comparison tool.
> Source: https://www.deni.gov.uk/services/schools-plus (go to the schools
> plus site, click the "All institutions" button followed by the export link
> on the left). It includes items in "schools" and "non-schools" grouping as
> set out at http://apps.deni.gov.uk/appinstitutes/InstViewInstType.aspx If
> you want a copy of my pre-processed data then let me know.
> Happy mapping
