    "description": "<p>Access to toilets is important for individual health and well being. Closing public toilets impacts local areas because visitors relieve themselves even if they cannot access facilities.</p>\n\n<p>These data visualisations were created in response to Covid 19 which caused the closure of public toilets. They were created using QGIS with open data from OpenStreetMap and Ordnance Survey.</p>\n\n<p>Mountaineering Scotland have an excellent guide on going to the toilet in the outdoors: https://www.mountaineering.scot/assets/contentfiles/pdf/where-to-go-leaflet.pdf. Please also see the outdoor access code for Scotland: https://www.outdooraccess-scotland.scot/.</p>\n\n<p>I created two maps for toilets in Scotland. Both maps use the same toilet data - taken from OpenStreetMap (<a href=\"https://www.openstreetmap.org\">https://www.openstreetmap.org</a>). OpenStreetMap is a community project, so data are only as good as submissions in a given area.</p>\n\n<p>The hex map was created by making a grid of hexagons with a diameter of approximately 6km and overlaying those over Scotland. I then counted the number of toilets within each hexagon and coloured the hexagon based on this count of toilets.</p>\n\n<p>For the voronoi map I plotted the toilet locations (purple dots) and then drew lines (orange) which bisected the space between each toilet. You can read more about voronoi diagrams here: <a href=\"https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voronoi_diagram\">https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voronoi_diagram</a>.</p>\n\n<p>If local data are missing you can contribute this information to OpenStreetMap yourself, here&#39;s a guide: <a href=\"https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Beginners%27_guide\">https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Beginners%27_guide</a>.</p>",
