Talk:PROTA, Introduction

From PlantUse English
Jump to: navigation, search

This page is a draft. I propose that this discussion page should host the commentaries and proposals about how to wikify PROTA data.

The following steps are planned :

  • stabilizing the lay-out of species articles
  • uploading the articles in English
  • uploading the articles in French
  • dealing with images.

The rationale is to reproduce PROTA as it is now. At a later stage, we could discuss about how to go on with the work. Additional data can anyway be put in the standard species pages of Pl@ntUse. Michel Chauvet (talk) 15:14, 12 March 2014 (CET).

A bot uploaded all pages available on Prota4U, whether edited or as starter kits. A manual checking has now to be done. Please do it at a same time for both linguistic versions. It includes :
  • deleting useless sections
  • deleting useless void lines
  • formatting synonyms, vernacular names and author lines as lists (with an asterisk)
  • formatting the author line with a comma instead of a line change
  • checking the categories, adding the right Usegroupe (PROTA) category.
  • uploading edited pages which are on Protabase, but not PROTA4U. Edited pages have all been published in the books.
  • uploading maps into Openmedia (with category PROTA map) by copying them from PROTA4U or Protabase
  • scanning line drawings from the books and uploading them into Openmedia (with category PROTA drawing)
  • for pages only mentioned in other articles, deleting the starter kit and replacing it with a redirect page, in which a link to the French page has to be added, as well as categories PROTA and Usegroup (PROTA).
  • in the main article of such species, adding a blue link on the species name to the Pl@ntUse page.
Once done, mention here which pages have been checked. Michel Chauvet (talk) 22:32, 20 September 2014 (CEST)
I began the work with Medicinals 2. Pages from A to Boscia are done. Michel Chauvet (talk) 22:33, 20 September 2014 (CEST)

Starter kits

It is planned to extract information from the results of data-mining in the starter kits.

This can be done only when all edited pages are checked, as the minor species which are only mentioned in other articles also appear as starter kits. Such starter kits will be transformed into redirect pages.

When the data-mining gives information from sites already given in the links of the main Pl@ntUse pages, their duplication is thought to be useless. Links give access to an updated page in relevant sites, whereas data-mining was one-shot and not dynamic. Michel Chauvet (talk) 11:32, 21 September 2014 (CEST).
