From your post to the OSM talk list it looks like your
involved in the
OpenGuides project, any idea when it would be possible to have one API
to all the OpenGuides sites (preferably maintained by OpenGuides
people), that I can query with a bbox to get a list of articles? Would
also be useful to have an API to get/put individual entrys.
We could then build this into OSM using client apps which is where using
that data as an overlay is most useful.
This is something we've been planning for a while now, but it requires
quite a lot of infrastructure which we don't currently have, so I'm not
sure I can say much yet :( We're having a hackfest some time in the new
year, though, and I will try and make this a priority, as a single point
of entry/search for OpenGuides is indeed quite important.
We tend to export mostly in RDF format with geo namespaces; is this
likely to be useful? (see the RDF format search on one of the existing
guides for an example).
