Is there any interest in setting up a geodata-project with symfony?
I am actually using the data from
Here is a huge amount of german regions and places are stored with lat-lon coordinates (e.g. usable for googleMaps). The project has a database with a somehow chaotic structure. I parsed the data I needed into xml and from here via xsl into yml to import all I need into my symfony project.
Thats what I can provide:
parsing from ogdb into xml
parsing from xml to yml (my special table structure)
a database structure wich is a bit easier than the old one
Why a new project?
The mass of data is good, I believe. But the project is not running forward. They dont have any admin tool to insert or correct the data. They are actually looking for something (since a year?).
There is not much geodata to be found for europe without paying.
The data only has german speaking regions, mainly germany, a bit austria and so on. The idea is good for at least whole europe or more. But it needs a good support by a Web-tool.
I think with symfony it could be not too much work to set up such admin-tool. But I cant do that alone with myself.
So, how is the reaction on this theme?
