I do not believe that I can drive my car to the UK on one charge.

Is OpenChargeMap involved in this, Kevin?

With so many locators out there, I just hope sanity will prevail and a consolidation or data sharing plan will emerge.

Unfortunately, not.... the UK Government awarded the contract to a commercial company without any bid or tender process... we are still trying to work out how that's possible or legal :shock:

So long as the UK Government has mandated that the data will be shared then OCM will take a feed (much like it does with the US or Portuguese Government databases)... I have no doubt that eventually the Government funding will dry up and the database will disappear but at least OCM will have a copy...

What is a good database interface to use on my own website? I an looking for a database interface that I can use on my own website. Something like what zoho offers but I do not want to depend on them for hosting.
