Comparison with GreenMap Taxnomy


(Michael Maier) #1

Thomas Schwab from Bene München has created a spreadsheet, where the TransforMap tax and GreenMap tax are compared. You can download it from our OwnCloud here.

Thanks @ Thomas!

Hi Josef,

in my preparation for the intergration of the Greenmap Data from Munich,
I tried to mark as much Transformap categories as possible. So you will
find needs, modes of interaction, wheelchair information etc. there. I
think not all the information was used during the integration.

It is great, that you did that, a wonderful source to build on!

Hi Thomas, we are thinking about the integration of our Regionallotse to OSM with the transformap-taxonomy, as well. I would like to understand your concept with greenmap in more detail:

  • Is there a two-way synchronisation between greenmap and OSM
  • do both remain active?
  • Do you have the transformap taxonomy in greenmap as well?
  • is it your goal to have all data in OSM with a map showing your entries with a tag like source=greenmap?

Thanks for some clearness,
Michael.

Hi Michael,

let me first answer your questions.

  • Is there a two-way synchronisation between greenmap and OSM
    o no
  • do both remain active?
    o yes
    + Munich: we don´t pay anything for greenmap now, so it will
    stay active for quite a while (at minimum until transformap
    will leafe the demo-version).
    + International: greenmap is watching well the progress of
    transformap and at the same time experimenting with other
    options. I think the transformap team should decide if they
    are interested in worldwide greenmap data (40.000 places)
    and, if yes, what to include in the 2nd taxonomy iteration
    to enable a better matching.
  • Do you have the transformap taxonomy in greenmap as well?
    o no, greenmap has its one taxonomy since 1995 with 170 icons in
    12 categories
    http://www.greenmap.org/greenhouse/files/gms/Green_Map_Icons_V3_Deficons.pdf
    Please see my matching of transformap/greenmap taxonomie.
    o I got access via Josef to the new transformap taxonomy and I
    have several questions. Is it possible to telefone?

  • is it your goal to have all data in OSM with a map showing your
    entries with a tag like source=greenmap?
    o no, but this is perhaps an idea, see Q2, A2

Do you know the OSM project OpenEcoMaps? Is someone from you in contact
with Tom Chance?

I have an idea how OpenEcoMaps could advertise TransforMap:
Under "Contribution" http://www.openecomaps.co.uk/contribute.php you
will find the sentence:
"Only enter things that actually physically exist on the ground. For
example, add a library but don't add a community group that meets
there - OpenStreetMap isn't the place for that sort of information."
They could ad the sentence: "Please use TransforMap
http://transformap.co/" .


Best
Thomas

Danke für den Austausch, @RCE_BenE_Muenchen. Hier eine kurze Zusammenfassung, was ich für mich mitgenommen habe:

Thomas ist beim BenE-München (gibt es auch in Nürnberg)
Greenmap ist 20 Jahre alt, kein Commons und kostenpflichtig
TransforMap/OSM in Version 2.0 ist das langfristige Migrations-Ziel
Münchner Initiativen nutzen die Plattform mit eigenen Layern gemeinsam:
*Biokarte (BUND München)
*Fair-Karte (Nord-Süd-Forum)
*Maker-Karte (München Machbar)…
Der Kontakt für einen eventuellen Massen-Import des Regionallotsen ist @species (Michael Maier) in Graz.

Ich werde das Thema mit den Infos bei uns diskutieren und die nächsten Schritte planen.
