Data analysis

(Adrien Labaeye) #1

Having so much data is great. Knowing about it is even better. I have been trying to have some way to analyze data and to vizualize it and it’s not successful: see source of

Generally, it would be great to have a page for the POIs and another for the mappings where we could have some analytics: eg. graph with most popular topics, languages, mapping platforms, etc.
@dreusser: You have some more background in quantitative analysis, maybe you have ideas of what to integrate and how?

(should I move this to the sub-category research?)

Consuming the data aggregated

Please specify, which kind of overview you would like to have.
A lot of analyzation work can be done in the wiki directly.

In my opinion it is fine here.
We should clean after ourselves, after we created enough garbage :wink:

You find an overview about mapping tool usage on

Hey! while writing my paper I would need to have the following:

  • share of tools used (in priority): e.g. Google Maps (76/25%), OSM (60/20%) etc.
  • location: e.g. Global (80/30%), USA (20/10%) etc.
  • topics: e.g. Urban Gardening…
  • language

I think that would also be very useful for readers of the wiki to have such basic stats on an overview page. @toka @almereyda could you help me?

The problem will be to get the data in, not out, imho.

I have started to build some queries, which could also help to get the data in …

Until when again exactly?

(Adrien Labaeye) #7

not 100% sure I understand what you mean. I understand that the data needs for each entry to be added.

thanks for that, very useful!

I should send the paper on Friday. Thursday then…

Ja, das meinte ich.
