My friend and open city collaborator Tim Wilson has come up with a genius idea for citizens of Vancouver to beat the heat. He’s asking everyone to help map all the free water fountains in the city as well as public air conditioned spaces.
To do this he’s created a public google map that anyone can edit – just on the aforementioned link and then on the “edit” button in the top right hand corner of the text box and in the map box editing tools will be made available to you.
With this map on your iphone and computer you can be sure to know where the closest cooling off point or free water fountain is. Anyone can add to the map and join the goal of helping Vancouverites stay cool, stay hydrated and healthy, and limit the waste created by disposable bottles. Please add to the map!
