If I understand correctly, your position on this issue is that:
- Creation of OSM-compliant natural hazard data should be encouraged
- This data might not be stored in the main OSM repository (planet.xml)
- This data should be consistent with existing tags and ontologies
- This data should be rendered with appropriate symbology
In other words, we should aim at a fork-project (openhazardmap.org for
instance) that will:
- Store specific hazard-related data
- Store TMS specifications for appropriate rendering
- Mashup the hazard data on appropriate data from planet.xml
Am I right? Anyone having a different opinion?
