Research talk:Geo-aggregation of Wikipedia edits
Notes from Oliver
- I really like the premise! You know how I feel about geolocation :D.
- I really like the premise! It seems similar to Priedhorsky's approach but far less computationally intensive.
- I'm concerned about the opt-out/opt-in; that sounds like engineering work :/. I'd absolutely love for us to have an opt-in/out system, though, so I'm not sure where that puts things. At the moment, engineering is...overspent in time, so that's going to need a lot of resourcing outside the direct purview of the Research & Data or Strategic Research teams. I'd note that (on the specific options available) we don't currently note on the editor-side if a user has DNT headers. Ironholds (talk) 18:13, 27 March 2015 (UTC)
Notes from Dave
This is a good proposal: I'd love to see this happen.
Notes from Dario
Thanks for getting this started, Shilad. A few notes:
- there's no explicit mention in the proposal (other than an example in the data format section) of the desired temporal granularity of the dataset. What's the minimum time range that would produce usable data for this research?
- I wanted to clarify that there's no expectation to produce data with a geographic component aggregated at sub-project level.
- finally, could you add a few thoughts on the extension of the proposal to all articles, not just geotagged articles.
Thanks for the excellent feedback, User:Dario (WMF)! I've tried to address your points in the latest revision. Please let me know if you have any more questions or feedback! Shilad (talk) 11:04, 20 April 2015 (UTC)
