Someone had already pointed out to me that I
could use the reverse
geocoding feature of Nominatim
) to categorize images at
Commons. I just implemented it and this tool seems to catch a lot of
images in the overcrowded categories. Would it be possible to set up a
local copy of this tool at the OSM toolserver?
Do you think this needs to be dynamic, or is it a one-time effort?
What do you consider dynamic? Tool should be set up and the backend
database should be kept up to date.
When shown your post, the nominatim author, Brian
Quinion, said to me
on IRC (he is twain47 on irc://irc.oftc.net/#osm
) that 250k lookups
are no problem if spread out over a few days. Unless you were after
local control of the tool.
I used the http://ws.geonames.org/
tool to find categories for the
intital upload of the 250.000 images. I'm now using the OSM tool to find
better categories for some of these images. Probably a couple of
thousands a day.
It's not that I want control, it's just that I think this tool would
also be nice to have on the OSM toolserver.
He also offered help setting it up if needed.
Great. With the current setup we have at the Toolserver, what would have
to be done?
