miHi all,
an english translated version of the italian extraction tool is now online
at this link

anyways there's a long way to achieve the purposes we've been pointing at
while chatting in irc on Friday.
I also hope that you all will be now able to understand what i meant as
'internationalization'.
The scripts on which the exporting interface is based are very specific to
the italian map and boundaries, using regions (regioni) and municipalities
(comuni) names etc.
The italian coder (Fabrizio) sent me a short how to to better understand
the comments and how the code works, please ask to me for that if you want
to use that code in your local context.
If this community is interested on an internationalization of this tool
then you'll find below my ideas.

We could choose the same layout on a global map and nation based data
extraction files, or we could choose to replicate the same interface on the
ebola concerned African nations (in this case we should understand if it's
worth to keep the regional an municipality's buondaries to sort the data).

Improvements:
We spoke a bit about the improvements we could bring to the interface and
extraction tool on irc and with the italian developers also.
A list of improvements may be this:
_select by polygons
_osmand format exports
_garmin gps exports

I may be able to make that improvements to the code but I'd prefer my time
and efforts to be inserted in a program like the one to which i applied,
the outreach program for womens

http://gnome.org/opw/

I may modify my application in order to improve this data exporting
interface if you all and the mentor (drazen odobrazic) for the exporting
data field's ideas tell me you're still interested in this kind of project.

I'll keep you informed anyways on the development of this tool and maintain
updated the sheet about osm exporting tools..

Hello Mikel,

I replied to you only on purpose.

So the idea to list available extraction tools (including available
documentations and source code) and publish it in one page so:

1. Non-technical person can extract OSM data based on their needs with
available tools

2. The tech people can look at the available list so they can figure out
the right tools (and hopefully ) and also figuring out workflow based on
their needs (and hopefully can share it to us).

I'm not too techie enough if I figure out by myself (I don't know about
other people in Training WG) but at least by having this list, we hope it
can help many people.

Hope it can explain

Thanks

*Kind Regards,*
