“Cool URIs” seem to me to be a requirement for geographic features that would be social objects and things to be tagged or annotated on the web. Does Moabi have these? Is it taking a different approach?]]>
Much will depend also on how easy it is to add information. Will it be possible for field biologists to upload observations? Will it be possible to input and/or access data using apps on handheld devices?
It will be very interesting to consider how to weigh the relative value of contributed information. Will there be a reputation assigned to contributors based upon past contributions (like is seen at some help-desk sites)? Or a star or usefulness rating like Amazon’s product ratings and reviewer ratings? So that, when you ask for example for data on informal logging, you can ask that field observations be included, but only from observers with a “3” or above ranking? That sort of thing.]]>
