The hint with the local names came also in the DE forum.
But during the building phase of the preset, I got the feedback that it has also a disadvantage.
Today there are three languages in the preset.
But maybe in future there are more.
Every tree needs the full set of ‘species:xx’ (today three), which doesn’t keep the data clean.
So I removed all ‘species:xx’ lines from the preset.
This is not valid for the Vespucci preset, because it’s only in one language.
But I wanted to keep both presets as similar as possible.
I need to think about the ‘genus’ tag…
Will it make selections in the data easier?
If the tag ‘pruning’ is agreed, I’ll think about it.
But it’ll make the preset more special.
Maybe that’s something for a version with botanic names only?
this preset is a very good idea, I find it far too time-consuming to add this information right now.
However, I do not think it is a good idea to translate all values by hand again and hardcode it in the preset.
they are indeed in osm genus:XX species:XX (which in my opinion pollute the base and make query harder) will for once find their usefulness if for a given value, there is + 90% of the same value for a genus:XX, imho it’s the correct one until someone desagree with it.
So i’m more in favor of some code that build, from time to time a list of all known translation and use wikidata to retrieve the missing one and update the preset when a new one is found.
Is it possible to add a “newbie” mode: for example I’m able to first fill in the type of leaf or the leaf cycle (depending on the season), and then see to list the compatible genus ? so I can look/learn what it could be.
I think you after some time this preset will be more or less static. There are not new species in Europe every few weeks. So also the translations don’t need frequent updates. That’s what I hope!
But if there has someone a script or program to make a translation into a new language faster, let us know here.
The “newbie” mode is already in. You have the option to use the unspecified trees. It’s available with prefilled leaf type and/or leaf cycle and/or genus.
What are you missing exactly? Maybe I didn’t get the point?
