Collection of Mappings before the move to transformaps.net

Starting a thread about the semantic wiki


Some questions to @toka :

  • on what is based the list ‘topics’? the previous table? Could we add a mention that people can enter their own text?
  • in the form to add tool in mapping of mappings, what is this weird field?

@alabaeye yes, we can add any info text, we want
so, for the topic field it could be:
“Choose one of the available options or add your own term.
The displayed items are all items, which have been entered in this field before”

That strange field in the middle is the imported field from the old table.
It was mixing information about the type of the ressource and its usability.
Now we have the two separate fields “Ressource Type” and “Project State”.
This field will be deleted when all old entries are edited.

I will add this information to the above form.

Please note, that there is an form for POIs available too now.

like that

not sure about the use of this

saw that, made an entry (not sure that i validated the form though). Where can we see POIs?

with this wiki we now have two places where to add entries to our mapping of the mappings: http://mmm.3oe.de/wiki/Mappings_Overview and the google spreadsheet.
To avoid dual editing we should collectively choose to move our mapping of mappings to the semantic wiki.
Are there any reasons not to do so?

I’ve started an introduction to the tool at wiki.transformaps.net - the transformaps atlas - Semantic Mediawiki

I would put your introduction on top of this thread instead to avoid multiplying the number of threads. OK?

No. The other thread is an introduction for 15MMM. This is the Engineering thread.
Lets work here and publish results there.

ok. Fine.

how can I edit the name of an entry? see below, there is a typo in the name… “o” instead of “m”

right of Edit/View history: select More -> Move

don’t know, weather you have enough rights to do it …

great! now that’s a great intermediary tool to be systematically used!
Does it convert the address into the coordinates automatically?
We could do some imports from the data we have in Berlin. Where can I do that?

As it seems you’re on full speed, I make a list of Easter wishes :smile:

  • the map of POI could be accessible on the overview page somehow (done). And its name in menu could be “map” instead of “POI types” (done)
  • different colours for events and place
  • display of ‘POI type’ under the name in pop-up
  • better drop icon: eg. the drop icon in Umap. There are a few on nounproject, some are public domain. I’ll have a look at those. (Provided that it can be implemented in the map extension). The icon “location” by Daniele Marucci is nice (somehow you can’t link to the icon directly)
  • learn some programming to make those changes myself :smile:

address conversion is buggy; the only solution i have found by accident:

enter the address in the location field; then click on “preview” (at the bottom)
after that the address is converted to a location

About form for Mapping:
I’m not super satisfied of the field “License URL”. We could already collect more information.
Two things I’m interested to know about:

  • license for data
  • license for platform/software

I understand we don’t want to clutter the form. So any idea to improve the situation without just adding two fields?

hm. I do not see a problem in adding more fields.

let just add the fields then. :slight_smile:
