Subject: [OpenGuides-Dev] non-UK openguides
as briefly mentioned on irc we'd like to set up an open guide to san
francisco. i wonder what the oslo people did to de-UK-ify
- just delete the OSX and Y fields from their template?
the openguides we ran at etcon not really for geographic purposes i
did fix up to accept UTM and convert back and forth between
lat and long
(and OS numbering is just a UTM coordinate with a digit
missing i learned)
also i was thinking of plugging in a geocoder to generate lat and long
from street addresses - e.g.
postcode boundaries being very large here.
is anyone else looking at that, i could try and assemble these changes
into a patch but they were a bit messy and should be config options...
Sounds like I need to pull my finger out and write the Geography::Grid
module I have been meaning to write. I think I've got the tuits to do this in
non-work time at the moment. I should also write this up as a hack once
I've done it.
I haven't done much to de-anglicanize the Orlando openguide. I keep meaning to get a
tuit into either implimenting Geo::Distance for the time being (something better than
nothing) or take a stab at the affor mentioned Geo::Grid hack (I'm not the best at
If something were to appear, I'd be more than happy to work as a testbed.
