Sorry, for the delay in responding a busy couple of days. Thanks for the work on those multiple sites.
I will try and answer some points, and try an fix some terminology to use going forward to avoid mix ups (mostly on my casual use of terms)Site
is a World Heritage Site e.g. Frontiers of the Roman EmpireLocation
a specific component location of a site e.g. Lees Hall Roman camp on Hadrian's Wall part of the site
Frontiers of the Roman EmpireMulti
The layer on the map that shows multiple locations
On reflection I don't understand what you mean by a site coming back with "blanks" on the multiple locations". Is this totally or partially?
Sorry I wasn't especially clear, these are partially blank. These are sites where the webcrawler identified a location but the coordinates field was blank. For example it identified there should be a location associated with the German Limes but there were no co-ordinates for it (nor the Antonine Wall in Scotland), however there could be other locations in that site that do have co-ordinates, in the case of FoRE it has them for Hadrian's Wall.
If you want the data, I can share the document with you
I'm going to share a document (hopefully tomorrow) that we can start to populate with this data. I may drop you a line to get those bits to start it off.
extract printable pdf versions example. Possible?
This is actually a bit tougher than it may seem, the short answer is no, however a Screenshot or Snipping tool will probably give you a fairly usable picture, that will be the simplest way in the short term, I will bare it in mind when developing the map and see if I can come up with solutions.
How are you deciding which coordinates to use at the overall site level and which to use at what I am calling the "location" level??
location is just what is on the Excel file on the official website, I'm making no judgements at this stage as to where the main site
dot should be located. Likewise all the locations
on the multi
layer are just what comes back from the crawlers results on the UNESCO website maps tables. So they are two separate tables, they should overlap in one specific location, let me know if you find sites with multiple locations that don't.
not sure yet if this is the "best" format for you Meltwaterfalls
It works pretty well thanks. Hopefully if I can get the shared file up it will be easier to just populate that. However in the interim the suggestions I would have are: an indicator between components of the data would help. Standard practice is to use a comma, however as there is text involved there is a fair bit of scope for a legitimate comma to be involved in the name (e.g.The Castle, Carlisle). As such I would suggest a semi-colon (;
) Also a lack of spaces between components helps. For example:
Ksar El Atteuf;
Roman Limes -> Please shoot me. Not going to do that. I also doubt that it makes sense to add each and every site here.
I've made this
from Google search for Limes.kml files, if you think this ties in with the actual locations of the site let me know and we can see about using them.
