Yesterday, TV presenter Ben Fogle, who is (rightly) campaigning about
the wasteful use of plastic bottles, asked on Twitter:

   I think we should make a map of all public Drinking fountains
   where we can refill bottles. Anyone willing to make a Water
   fountain app?


I've replied pointing out that OSM has this data under open licence,
but others have pointed to:


which is adding pins to a Google-based map.

I've reached out to them, too.
