Refine Geographic UI and JS Integration for PublicLab.org
Abstract/summary (<20 words):
Refine existing geographical features so that they are consistent and user-friendly.
The problems to be addressed are as follows
- Users on https://publiclab.org/profile should be prompted to add geographical location. Therefore it should be obvious whether or where the user should add a geographical location.
The website should state the safety of the user after adding their location
It should be clear as to why the user is adding their location.
Pages like __https://publiclab.org/puerto-rico should persist geographic tags when something is posted from that page
There should be consistency in geographical tags to buttons related to a specific post
Users should be able to embed a map on a wiki page or when posting a question.
When viewing a map, it should be possible to embed that map on other pages
[To Do, add screenshots and timeline]
I need guidance from project mentors, the public community and any online documentation.
