Can you add other resources to BlindSquare that have information of special interest to the blind?

There are different projects that have been created to collect place information of special interest to the blind, such as tactile pavement, audible traffic lights etc. Unfortunately Foursquare POI-data may only be used separately from POI-data of other sources.

As BlindSquare may not query different resources for POI-data at the same time, it cannot currently access these specialized resources.

We may introduce an option in a future version that lets the user select resources to be queried for POI-data. Although BlindSquare does currently use both Foursquare and Open Street Map data, it only downloads street map data and no information about other points of interest from Open Street Map.
