Project of the week/2010/Apr 18
"Back to School"
Let me take you back to school. Think of all of the wonderful things about being in school; the fun, the friends, the joy of learning. Now think of the joy of putting your old school on the map.
The project of the week this week is to put the schools that you attended on the map. Grade school, high school, post-secondary schools, put them all on the map. Draw in the building outlines if they are available, and perhaps the school yard, sport pitches and play grounds.
Perhaps you aren't sure that your old school still exists. Was that building rezoned for a toxic waste dump or condos? Use this project of the week as an excuse to get in touch with a friend from school who still lives nearby. Call and ask if it is still a school and if the name has changed.
Tag a school according to grade levels
amenity=kindergarten # pre-school or nursery school amenity=school # grade school, primary school, secondary school or default for other schools amenity=college # Post-secondary, technical and applied education amenity=university # Post-secondary, graduate education
Add the name of the school to the building or school node
name=Public School 103 loc_name=PS 103 # perhaps there is a local name as well as the formal name?
Consider adding an operator tag to indicate the local school board responsible for the school
If you are providing a building outline, remember to tag it
Is there a sport field as well?
Perhaps a running track?
