- Options for crowdsourcing GIS data? 3 answers
I'm wondering about the best strategy to incorporate user comments and user added points to a map. The best example that I can find of this is ushahidi with an example of how users can add information here:
I understand how to create this through the use of a web-form and a WFS-T type approach so that a user can add a point which can be stored in a postgresql/postgis database. Where I would appreciate advice is on a good strategy for displaying user-generated data back to the users, so that additional comments and interactions can be achieved.
I've looked through the source code of ushahidi and find it more sophisticated than I can handle at the moment. Are there any other examples or approaches of collaborative web-maps out there that illustrate good ways of doing this?
