  • general idea
    unique place identifier = OSM node id?
    how to handle duplicates?
  • There would have to be some classification so there does not need to be another roundtrip to
    Benefit is that it can be rendered on the map
  • request details for a place can still be got the same way, or through the OPP.
    All repositories could return their location data for the app to make sense of. Not for now.
  • To make this easier there could be an intermediate request - to see which repositories hold info for a particular place.
  • Posting a new place, two step process
    First post to OSM, retrieve OSM ID, then post details using the acquired ID in own repo.
