OSM & Finland’s Saunas

Using the Overpass API, I scraped all the location data for Finland’s publically accessible Saunas. The map only gave me 254 which makes me think that there are lots missing, as that would account for only 0.01 of the alleged 2 million that exist in this country of 5 million people. In the future I’d like to play with this sauna database more. Some of these up in Lapland aren’t really that accessible by road (they’re accessed by canoe) and I’d love to eventually work out the most remote public sauna in Finland!
