Data.go.th has released 46,000 coordinates and other details of schools and education centers as an excel files https://data.go.th/DatasetDetail.aspx?id=8548e3ab-00bf-4eae-b29a-156a4aa52c0d the license is Open Government License - Thailand. I’m not sure if it’s compatible with OSDL but if you’re concerned, in the very least it will be useful for things like verification or deriving district names.
Well, I’ve done 24634 to 24672. Very tedious and only .0009% done! Any help appreciated. I’ve marked each school in the last excel file column with ‘done’ or ‘gps wrong’. Of course, that’s only on my computer.
Really fast is essential. I can do one line in 3 minutes if I don’t do all the nearby editing generally needed. That comes out to about 57 40 hour work weeks. I like OSM a lot, but not that much.
I just did a bit more research, the data is available under the Open Government License - Thailand which is almost a verbatim copy of the Open Government License UK which is covered under the Ordnance Survey Opendata so it should be fine!
I’d really like to have some professional or official clarification of this before we proceed. I can’t seem to access data.go.th at the moment, but from what I remember the Thai OGL included conditions such as not using the information for illegal purposes, something which can’t be assured under the OSM contributor terms.
I just finished going through 500 lines of this data, all of Nakon Phanom. I was able to name about 350 villages.
Only 30 had wrong GPS data, and about 100 didn’t use the village name in the name of the school. About 30 were already named, making a good crosscheck. The school names use first the village name, then a few often untranslatable syllables tacked on the end.
