ALERT: @transforMappers: If there are mistakes in the following message, please correct me! + at the very end, there is some new information re. the partners for the intl. testmapping

We are also collecting the so called "Points of Interest", as this is sth. the common mapper (and user) is very interested in.

A "Point of Interest" itself is every spatial phenomenon which we encode with a mere dot. The groupings of their properties can then emerge into classes.
@DanielJ Could you please reformulate the argument in your own words?
- the second is, that our programmers (some magic is in there, I
swear you), are about to finish a prototype for the online testmapping (needing a few more days) and that the current state of the taxonomy finally allows to work on the official and user friendly entry mask.
Please note that the terms "prototype" and "user friendly" often contradict each other. Not to produce too Great Expectations.
If you wanna wait for another tool, bear with us.
We now need to start the global conversation about the testmapping and can use our global mmm list for it (the one I am cceing);
PLEASE REGISTER THERE

The global mailing list interface is at
If you feel overwhelmed by email sometimes (like me), you can also converse with (some of) us and others on the Web.
There is now a Discourse category for testmappings:
