It's not a technical problem to pull data (and push updates) to these
directories, they just don't want to do it or cannot re-license the
data. There will always be people who prefer other sites/apps and there
will also always be new ones hoping to become the next big thing in EV
charging. The difference with OCM is that user contributed data is Open
licensed for wider distribution, whereas most other sites/apps are not,
instead they tend to keep the data for themselves in an attempt to build
their own brand and perhaps even make a profit.
Open Charge Map will not be holding data on Private (residential/home)
charging because our data is widely shared/distributed and we cannot
then comply with the various data protection laws in place globally
which are designed to protect consumers. The most obvious problems are
when you move house and don't update your listing (or can't update it),
then the new owner gets people turning up for a charge. OCM will instead
be implement Charging Requests whereby people can request a charge in a
specific area and other users can get in touch with them to arrange,
that way their private information doesn't need to be broadly published.
