Kate’s Great Idea

So it would appear the downside to running a competition is that I’m not allowed to enter. Well, that doesn’t mean I can’t tell the world about my fantastic idea for an application – Walk This Way, Talk This Way (but not to strangers). Have a read, and see if you can do better by sending your idea to opendata@warwickshire.gov.uk. We need your ideas, and who knows, it might give some clever developer the inspiration to build what you want.

The reality of my application is still not quite possible until we can launch the locations of zebra, pelican and pedestrian crossings – they are currently OS-derived datasets. But with the rate at which the Ordnance Survey are freeing stuff up, this could be possible by the end of the year (nudge, nudge).
