RE: Love Windy? Hack Windy. Contributors Wanted
I am founder of a niche-market weather website that I guess you already know. There is some competitive overlaps on our respective "weather" activity.
But we share the vision of open-source and better information for every pilots and sport enthusiasts. I think that having a good sports database for everyone is more important that competition between two companies.
We were already working with ParaglidingEarth founder to refactor the paragliding spots database.
We will use OpenStreetMap as the database backend (because why do we need another new database ?)
So all paragliding spots will be imported into OSM and ParaglidingEarth will serve as a simplified OSM editor and it will also store some metadata such as spots pictures.
I think we have here a very good opportunity to initiate a "spots" movement into OSM. If we merge ParaglidingEarth and your kite spots into OSM, that will encourage people add more spots and more activities - not only PG and Kite.
And, is there any database more legit that OSM for storing geographical POI ? ;)
Want to join us in that project?
(This is a real collaboration proposition. We are not seeking to profit from Windy's visibility)
