Re: [Wikimedia-l] endangered languages project - Tool for map representation

2013-05-27 Thread Mathieu Stumpf

Hi, I foward this mail to design, since it seems relevant here.

As far as I know, currently there is no other way to create (world)maps 
than taking some existing blank one, and put the color on regions of 
interest. Maybe it would be intersting to have such a tool online, but 
more important, to ease contributors ability to make interactive maps, 
which enable readers to see how a phenomenon evolved/is evolving through 
time.


What do you think ?

Thank you for the link.

It seems to be the result of a realy huge work! Do you know if their
solution to create interactive map is free software? I would love to 
have
such a tool within wikimedia. To my mind, it would be really useful 
for
geographic and historical articles. Having a tool that would enable 
to
watch events propagation through time and localisation on a map 
would be

awesome, and it seems to me that their software is almost all that.



Hi Mathieu,

I don't know anything about this project beyond what's on the site -- 
I
just ran across it. From what I can tell the user-submitted language 
data
is CC-by but unfortunately they seem to be using Google Maps for the 
map

interface.
