I’ve sketched a proposed workflow for our future TransforMap editor.
This is the detail sketch of the editor from the transformation of different distributed datasets to Linked Open Data post.
When the user is about to add a new POI, it looks in our partner databases, if there is an existing POI and fetches as much info as it can get out of other databases, to aid the user.
There are two ‘branches’:
- There are already datasets: the user is asked to merge them (left branch)
- The POI is ‘new’: It starts a walk-through, asking each attribute at a time (right branch)
At the end, the user gets presented all attributes at once, before clicking “Submit”.
After the “Submit”, the ‘magic’ starts: The editor uploads different attributes of data to different databases - each part of data where they belong thematically. Links to the dataset in other DBs are automatically pushed to each DB.
Addition of more databases is intended - I’ve included a imaginative “Solidarity Economy Attributes DB” - attributes from our Taxonomy Table 4 and 5 may be end up there, if the Solidarity Economy movement wishes to use their own server.
The sourcecode, as well as PDFs of this chart can be found on github - called “editor”.
As always, improvements and comment are very welcome
