> Hi,
> I was thinking last night about the ITO Analysis heat map as a tool that
motivates people to look into doing some mapping in different area's.
> http://www.itoworld.com/product/data/osm_analysis/map_browser
> I was wondering what statistics are available that we could use to make an
interactive visualisation/map of the quality/last time edited of the pages
on the wiki.
> I think analysing the whole wiki might be too confusing but maybe a
smaller subset like tags might be worth experimenting on. If we had a map
which shows which tags have been accepted, which are proposed and not voted
on, which are proposed and abandoned, which set of tags are confusing or
need to be rethought. I am definitely thinking of a map and not a series of
graphs, I would need to be able to zoom in on a proposal that has not be
acted on for a year so that I could deleted it,
> If we gave the wiki page itself some tags
> page=proposal
> date:started=01/01/2011
> voting=02/07/2011
> If we had a voting tag then we can show which proposals are currently
being voted on
> spanish=no
> needs translation
> duplication= wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/********
> cleanup= yes
> for areas that we need more documentation we can create a page then add
the tag
> page=not started
> My mind is wandering a bit this morning so if this sounds daft please
> Cheers
> Bob
