Can anyone add photos and information regarding Nelson plaques to this brilliant website? Open plaques is electronically listing information and photos of plaques worldwide. Website: http://www.openplaques.org

Quote:
'Open Plaques is a community-based project started in 2009 which documents, catalogues and promotes commemorative plaques (often blue and round) installed on buildings and other public landmarks in the UK and beyond.

The service aims to bring the people-powered history the plaques encapsulate to life - and to a larger audience - by making its website and database the definitive and most comprehensive resource about these historical markers. In turn, the data and resources produced by the project aim for wide distribution and re-use, and are available for free to all under a Public Domain declaration.

As well as telling you where they are, we aim to tell you who is commemorated on them, what those people are notable for, and what their connection is with the places where their plaques are installed. We've been able to uncover this data largely through a process of automatic natural language parsing - although this sometimes fails and requires manual intervention (if you spot a mistake, tell us).

We've gathered the data from a small number of the known organisations which have established and maintain plaque schemes in the UK and elsewhere. As the plaques by their very nature are public information, we're keen for more organisations to share their plaque data so it can be included, forming a complete database and a unified map of the plaques' locations. Please get in touch if you'd like your plaques to be included.'
