Hi 

I'm considering making maps of all the grit routes, grit bins, heating circuits etc of sheffield in time for winter 2020.

Would anyone be interested?

So you will be asking  Sheffield City Council to supply you with some grit/salt and a shovel?

What's a heating circuit?

That was my first thought. The OP later mentions  what a heating map is.... map in sheffield of all the buildings that are heated in winter by burning the city rubbish.

 

I still don`t understand the connection between buildings that are heated by burning rusbbish and gritting the roads. OP tell us more.

Its just a map of various projects in sheffield that sheffielders might be interested in.  (the rubbish burnt doesnt go to landfills, it heats council buildings)

Something to proud about.

The grit route and grit bin locations are listed on sheffield city website but in a different format.

If I create a map (google map format) with all the above listed projects , anyone with a smartphone or tablet stuck in traffic or snow  can see where to look for a bin or where to park when they snowed in.

It a public interest map, done now,  in time for when winter snow starts.

I could also make an app using augmented reality that smartphones can use to guide them exactly where nearest grit bin is.

In scotland the grit lorries are posted in real time , you can see where the lorry is, what street they're on , what street they just gritted and when your street is next in the queue.

In england , each region posts their own , what if you drive to work in 3 areas? download 3 different maps? 

Feedback welcome.

 

I'll make a test site and post a link here, asking for feedback.

@hilltop chatter

That sounds like quite a lot of effort on your part. You are trying to do something that is positive and potentially helpful to people. I will watch the thread.

Regarding  the heating of buildings by burning rubbish, does that extend to blocks of council flats or is it just the council offices etc?

1. doncaster grit map(reference only, to show what a completed map looks like, will be removed and replaced with a sheffield grit bin  map)

2. sheffield winter heating circuit(to show which buildings are heated by burning rubbish, buildings are gov , council and old age homes)
