Hi everyone

It seems that the idea that got most traction from discussions  is to use Food
Hygiene Rating <http://ratings.food.gov.uk/>data  from the Food Standards
Agency to improve the density of POIs, addresses and postcodes in town
centres.(Town centres are not exclusive - it's just they'll provide the
most impact for users)

1.We have a great tool <http://gregrs.dev.openstreetmap.org/fhrs/>developed
some time ago by gregrs, whose work we should really recognise by making
use of it.
2. We could semi-automate  the process if someone wants to build on the
code developed by Christian Ledermann for schools.
(We might even be very daring and completely automate it! That would
certainly accelerate our completion of UK postcode data which according to
Jerry's current estimate of completion will take 2-3 decades)
3. There are indications that the FSA might want to assist us.
4. This quarter might we try  a couple of new approaches?
a)collaborate on an area that needs some attention
b)in addition to improving the map and the community, improve our reach by
contacting potentially interested organisations/mappers outside the reach
of this talk group?
