- Can data from a private API really be open? +1
- Can it legally be open-sourced? – Raphael (das-g)
- Are there streets named after persons, but without the given name in
the street name (e.g. just the family name)? – Raphael (das-g)
- How are streets split into multiple ways counted?
- It seems not number of streets but street lengths were counted,
so the splitting shouldn’t matter. – das-g
- As OpenStreetMap lacks the concept of “street” counting them is
the hard part.
Did you find interesting differences between regions in
- For your matching of the names vs streetname, how long did that join
take? Any tips on making the join faster? (indexing ect? )(Keith H)
- Did you disregard titles completely or also use them to determine
gender? One can probably assume, that in catholic regions, all popes
are male. – das-g
- No, there were some lonly female popes.
- Given names only don’t need to be anonymous. They can be dedicated
to one person. Needs research.
- Did you assess the quality of this method based on a subset with a
source of known genders? (Like name:etymology:wikidata -> sex or
gender (P21) or similar)
10. Is the peripheral link to females related to the streets being more
recent than the older central streets I wonder?
- (Bernardo, since the stream ended): that could be a factor…
But it could also be that the more “important names / people”
were used for the more central and “more important” streets, and
for smaller streets in the periphery there’s more openesss to
name it after a figure that is not “so historically important”.
But this is a hunch, needs further research!
