As founder of a emergency reporting service, we use OSM occasionally for reverse address look up and thought it was worthwhile contributing back. We also have a connection or two to remote aboriginal communities and would like to see these communities on an equal keel in at least OSM.

We started with some basic road mapping in South Australia however have undertaken to update around 180 communities in Western Australia. This has spread to the whole team to update when time permits. Hopefully this will lead others to add to the content rather than seeing the odd unnamed road and hamlet signpost.
