innovographic

Gail Knight has come up with the genius idea of mapping all the public toilets in the UK. Apparently this information had not existed previously, so she has taken it upon herself to make an interactive graphic map marking all the wc’s out there.

It seems the Government does not posess this data, so Knight has had to coax the information out of over 300 councils.

But where the data exists, the map shows the toilet location and information about them. Where data does not exist, the public can contact their councils to ask them to join in with the project.

This is a great idea. Knight believes it will help those who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome and incontinence amongst other medical problems.

What innovative use of an infographic I say!
