Compiling a Database of Australian Public Toilets
Of all the great reasons to own a GPS receiver, this may well be one of the best. An Australian company is compiling a geographical database of all 13,000 public toilets in that nation. The project grew from a collaboration between the Australian Minister for Aged Care and the Continence Foundation of Australia. Clearly, people with a medical condition will be grateful for the information, but the project stands on its own merits as a genuine public service. While the database is not yet complete, we figured publicizing the effort might spur similar projects in other places around the world. From there it's only a short step to the traveler's nirvana of a wireless PDA and on-demand directions to the nearest public convenience. Wired has more details.
