Contributing to Blue dot water observatory

The Blue dot observatory is has lot of unnamed water bodies. Is there way to contribute the missing names to these water bodies?

Hi @Arky

Thanks for your enthusiasm and willingness to contribute. Unfortunately at this moment we don’t have an automated way to do so. If you have a list of water bodies you’d like to see added, please send us a geojson/geopackage/shapefile of nominal waterbody extents (vectors of waterbodies) with following attributes:

  • country of the waterbody
  • name of the waterbody

If the file would be read with geopandas, the resulting geodataframe should look like this:

Sure @batic Most of ones I would like to name are already in the database. We just need to add names to those already listed as ‘Unknown …’

Great. A map like

{ waterbody_url: "correct name" }

would probably suffice. waterbody_url example:
