Thank you for choosing Georeferencer to bring your maps to life. This website will show you all deliverables and help to start the project succesfully.
Start with this article on D-Lib about successful crowdsourcing projects. Then, prepare a website where you include the gadgets (copy & paste HTML snippets from this page) and let us know the final public URL of that page. One good example is available at http://www.bl.uk/maps/
Data (geographical positions) for finished maps are updated live in
Google Fusion Tables (keep this link private): 1lonW6aUzO3PULtne6L2CIkWeNpAuQomluFsKmDtu.
Numbers of control points (map revisions) are available at: 1PMkGq4w5anK6F2Z2RL0NAsWwhb5vUpQZIYak_s5Q
Each visitor can start georeferencing and after few seconds will be asked to login. Only data from users, that are looged in are saved. Login is available with Facebook, Google or Twitter accounts, optionally with own georeferencer account. There are no administration accounts, all users are equal.
Nearly all of the projects do not need quality control at all. However, quality control can be done, when the project is finished and there are some maps incorectly positioned. In this case, you can use a reviewer account. To activate it, go to http://test.georeferencer.com/review and click on the “request to join” link. You will be notified by email after approval.
Then, you can go to reviewer’s dashboard
In the bottom of your user account, you will find a reviewer panel
For each map, you can delete the current georeference and put it back to the unfinished maps. For this task, use the buttion “return to the crowd”
NOTE: Ask for reviewer account only if you find incorrectly positioned maps in your project, otherwise, this feature is senseless.
