Following a thematic introduction, into possibilities to further develop or implement the Atlas Strategy:
The Atlas strategy
Do you think a possible goal for 2019 could be to enable others to produce something similar in their languages, or possibly co-develop a multi-lingual version of semeoz with others?
You created it as a wordpress installation. Would it acutally be possible to make a copy of the wordpress instalation without the content, and have other communities reproduce it in their languages?
Looking at the beautyful interface you created, it is a pitty, that the attempt of people in the transformap ecosystem, implemented with a mediawiki (Link here), consumed a lot of work (of e.g. @toka, @alabaeye, and many others) and unfortunately did produce mainly a wasteland of text.
It is very well visible, that the Semeoz implementation is well embeded in a bigger picture, built with purpose and the end user in mind. It is a delight to share and show people the existence of all these maps, it would be great to enable more people to create such a beautiful atlas to show them in their languages.
Some prior conversations on the topic were:
- Semeoz inventory of maps
- Proposal for converging Semeoz work and Transformap wiki of maps
- Improving the mapping of maps
- 🗺 Listing all atlases of maps
