for starters ...
Howdy OSM community! I'm a 3rd year GIScience PhD student living in Santa Barbara, CA. When I'm stuck at school, I'm researching GIS conceptual fundamentals, geographic information retrieval, and spatial cognition. When I'm not on campus, I'm rebuilding a pool table, rejuvinating a quadcopter, home brewing, and climbing around the Santa Inez mountains.
the details ...
My 2018 summer will be dedicated to integrating notes (and maybe a few other things) into the iD editor. Here is a project overview. This'll allow editors to more easily see and create notes while live editing. To start, I'll make sure that a notes API is set up and that note details are queried for a given viewport. Next, I'll be adding note icons, a toggle to turn notes on and off, and several other UI components. Finally, I will add remaining interactions including closing notes, commenting, etc.
This task, albeit humble, should be a challenge for me since I'm not a native developer. However, I hope to complete this task before the end of the program and move on to some other iD tasks. For more details on my project schedule, check back in a week for my next post.
p.s. I'm glad that OSM allows me to indicate my location with spurious precision ;)
