I recently stumbled upon this article on DN:
That led me to wonder what kind of open data there is about the location of bicycle pumps in various municipalities and if there have been initiatives to add them to various maps services.
It seems like a lot of them do and a website was created by someone, https://www.pumpacykeln.se/.
I was also able to find quite a few of them on Google Maps with a simple search for “cykelpumpar” or “bicycle pump”. Unfortunately, I could only find a few on OpenStreetMap.
I wonder if that could be an interesting project for some of us who love to work with OSM, Wikidata. Gather (ideally semi-automatically) open data from all the municipalities with a page about their public pumps, import that data in OSM and build a very simple webpage displaying them on a map.
Today, a cyclist in need of a pump at the border between Solna and Stockholm would have to check both municipalities’ websites and check which pump is closest. Neither the app in DN’s article nor the website I found nor Google Maps seem to be able to provide a better service…
