I am exploring the possibility of organizing tools, process, and coordination for a distributed mapping effort around various “assets” of regenerative culture/economy/society at the regional level. This is closely related to the mission of Transformap already, as I understand it, and perhaps other projects or work groups already. The focus is on primarily rural areas defined by physical and/or cultural boundaries.
I would like to have:
- a way to import small to medium sized data sets of several POI at once, after curating and formatting
- possibility of one or more custom tag fields (and filters on map viewer), plus alternative labeling for established tags (e.g. “food source” instead of “provides: food”)
- a dedicated URL with filter presets and custom metadata/info, such as the Demo maps have now
- embedding custom maps in other websites/pages
- API to the map database
I believe this is all possible through TransforMap now or soon - is that correct? Is there a milestone coming where you will ‘release’ and promote the mapping toolset as a publicly available resource? Or has that already happened? Should I set up a separate ‘community’ here for this work/discussion?
thanks for any advice and guidance!
