Is there an up-to-date and regularly maintained open database of elementary, middle, and high schools in the South America and Africa? I'm looking for both public and private schools. Names alone would be a good start, but of course addresses (at least a state and city). Street-names and house-numbers would be great too. And phone numbers would be very useful.
Note; Sure there is the Dataset at openStreetmap which may provide a good starting-point. But perhaps there are some othter options too. Please post everything you have.
updates ; regarding the total count of new entries in openstreetmap
Some days before i have heard that it is interesting to have a closer look at the taginfo-site (see below): i have question: what does this mean https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/tags/amenity=school
here we have two requests on the above site:
today Objekts all 592852
three days ago: 2014-06-23 23:58
all objects: 592672 0.02% - [Node] Node 325997 - 0.36% [Way] Way 260585 - 0.11% [Relation] Relation 6090 - 0.23%
c. some (guess five) days before: we have had the following values:
all objetcts: 592 443 0.02% [Node] Node 325 974 0.36% [Way] Way 260 384 0.11% [Relation] Relation 6 085 0.23%
see some more details - several days before
all: 592 443 0.02%:
you see: that differs: we have a difference of several hundred x (entries, records or some what)
question: a. is it true that we can see the diff - that means how the entries of schools grow? b. is there a total growth of records (!!!) of schools or does the this mean - some records have been changed!?
look forward to hear from you
