I’m working on curating some training data for environmental analysis. I want to gamify this, allowing users to also contribute their finding to OpenStreetMap.
The workflow being:
- User shown photo
- User tags object (e.g. tree) and adds more detailed data (e.g. tree species)
- Tag added to OSM and object recorded
- User earns points for contribution
- Back to step 1
For the object classifications, I want to use OSM category tags: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Category:Tag_descriptions_by_value
My question is, what is the best way to pull this information? Is there are curated list of the tags on the OSM wiki linked above in a structured file? Or even better, and API to query tags?
