OSM mapillary tag value
Which form of value do you prefer ?
- The long string as in
- The short one as in
Is started a discussion on the OSM Wiki under “Why substring the url”.
My point of view is that computers can easily conditionally parse an url. It is not human work to select a part of a string, copy it and paste it. At this moment, one would even have to paste back into an url to get an image.
I am surveying the drinking water fountains in Brussels. When ready, I will show the map to all stakeholders. The only way to convince anyone that this is correct is to allow easy access to the Mapillary pictures.
I do not know when a link between OSM and Mapillary will be done. Examples at this moment are Wikidata and Wikipedia. http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Wikidata
A 5 seconds query :
In the mean time people are expected to install JOSM with the Tag2Link plugin.
I am not going to change the wiki without some backup of knowing people.
In the mean time I might invent an new mapillary tag key in order not to loose my work and to be able to work.
