As a member of the OER community I want to filter the world map data (especially projects and experts) by special OER activity fields.

Acceptance criteria:

  • includes a special set of categories, which describe fields of activies within the oer movement

An initial version of cathegories which describe special fields of activity within the OER area can be found here: http://etherpad.lobid.org/p/opportunities

Please see enclosed screen layout study showing

  • proposals of filter UI applied to the map view
  • proposals of filter UI applied to the result list
  • statistic data and cross-links icons in tooltip layers on map
  • variations of how to avoid pin clusters by adding numbers in large-scaled map views

I need to add that design draft includes the visualization of alternatives, added for internal discussions among the developing team. These alternatives include

  • position and color of tooltip areas
  • typography and style of cluster-pins
  • position and style of icons (taken from the public source fontawesome library)
  • color scheme of checkbox and close icon-areas
  • last, not least – the two already known color systems:
    a) orange = hovered/currently presented + b) dark blue = pure/not selected display

Note: This layout draft also applies to following issues:
#163, #160, #140, #40, #41, #42, #43, #34, #31

I still believe that including the "fields of activity" would be very helpful for searching. It could be also used for browsing by showing related entries.
example: When looking at a project, which aims at content production, we could display "similar projects" which are also aiming at content production.

Yes, this makes sense. We would need those fields as a (SKOS) classification then. Or does this already exist and I missed it?

This doesn't exist yet. If this is needed and http://etherpad.lobid.org/p/opportunities is mature, I will make a ticket ad https://github.com/hbz/vocabs-edu and start working on it asap.

One of the lessons learned from the OER Atlas was that our categories (http://etherpad.lobid.org/p/opportunities) are pretty good, but that simply choosing one or several of them did not work fine. I guess we need a more sophisticated mechanism here. One solution would be to add values (e.g. from 1-3 or 1-5) for every category. This would provide us with a possibility to make pretty good profiles of the projects. The input also could be visualized as a radar chart (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radar_chart). I guess this should enable us to identify similar projects very easy.

Here comes an example of an radar chart which I based on the fields of activity categories:

While I understand the categories, I don't yet understand where the values for the numerical scale will come from.

@trugwaldsaenger

This has to be entered manually via according templates. For each category it should be possible to select a value, eg. 0-9 or 0-3.

I see! This is definitely a new requirement and will make things more elaborate as we cannot simply reuse the same template elements we already have. Also, this will require some data modeling, pinging @acka47.

Sorry, I think I mixed this up with #686. I guess we will not need numeric values there, right?

Yes. No numerical values for #686 but for this story (#144).
