11<p>Since the beginning of the site, we have included data from <a href="http://www.freethepostcode.org/">Free The Postcode</a>, which is another site dedicated to producing public domain postcode data. These entries show up on our maps with a purple marker (our data has a green marker).
12
13<p>From this week, we're pleased to announce we're including data from a second public domain, collaborative postcode project. This one is the <a href="http://www.dracos.co.uk/play/locating-postboxes/">Locating Postboxes</a> project, run by <a href="http://www.dracos.co.uk/">Matthew Somerville</a>. Some of the postboxes they locate have known postcodes, and this data is shown on our site with pink markers.
14
15<p>As with <a href="http://www.freethepostcode.org/">Free The Postcode</a>, this data is imported into our site nightly. Our importer scripts are also open source, and available from <a href="https://urchin.earth.li/svn/npemap/trunk/npemap.org.uk/scripts/generic-python-import/">here</a>, which people are always welcome to use and improve
