Style guidelines for base.transformap.co?


(Paul Mackay) #1

Hi, very interested to see that http://base.transformap.co has recently been setup! I think this is a great idea :slight_smile:

I mention style guidelines because one of the aspects of Wikidata that I think is useful is the content rules/guidelines that state each item should be singular and lowercase unless a proper noun, acronym, etc (where capitals would be used). Might this be worth considering for the Base site? Items would also align more closely with their Wikidata counterparts (where applicable).

Currently @species was drawing terminology from the OSM taxonomy, but it had never been pulled in by their community…

Some relevant pieces for your question are probably those in https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Proposed_features/TransforMap#TODO.2Fnotes_-.3E_write_here

@toka thoght early to reference Wikidata.
