- the transformaps atlas - Semantic Mediawiki

(Thomas Kalka) #1

On / I provide a semantic wiki, which we can use to collect data for 15MMM.
My aim is to create some update on @josefkreitmayer’s questionaire, adding the (imho essential) features

  • contributors should be able to refine their input in small steps
  • we all should be able to talk about our efforts inside the system
  • possibility of continuous adaption of input mask / taxonomy etc. while our knowledge about the process evolves

Anyone courageous enough to try it in its alpha alpha stage is invited to test it …

###Next Steps

  • check, wether the POI input mask at contains all information provided by the questionaire
  • if yes: disable questionaire with a link to
  • update descriptions here in discourse
  • create some maps :wink:

Hi @toka

I put this in just to play about with it really:

I was hoping a pin would show up here: but it hasn’t yet. Does it take a while to display? Or have I done it wrong? Or misunderstood?

Hi Sam,

sorry to inform you that the map in isn’t yet linked with the semantic mediawiki. All Items displayed on are directly from the OpenStreetMap database.

If you want to have a point appearing on now, you have to add it to OpenStreetMap, e.g. with the JOSM editor. See here:
Which tools are available for mapping?

But, after adding the Category:Office you will find it on the map of offices in

and also on the map of places at

We are collecting data to talk about taxonomies etc …

Joining them all on a map is the second step.

hey @toka: I’ve tried to add a field in the Datasource templates (for edit and display), but it doesn’t show. I assume you have to accept the changes.
The field is to store the URL of the taxonomy documentation of the map on
