Hi Brian,

I know it's not very helpful to suggest ideas without also putting a
bit of time in myself, but I'm afraid there's not much I can offer at
the moment I'm afraid! I'm looking out for ways to put two and two
together that might be doable.

To be clear: this funding call that I forwarded is for academia, so
I'm sending it mainly for the attention of GIS academics. It could be
useful for the UK OSM chapter in partnership with an academic perhaps.
