Exporting/WikiData/IUCN/Taxonomy/Depth

Post by mfupi »

Hi! Excellent product and functionality! A few suggestions for future development:

• A depth field for site information would be helpful, especially for shipwreck sites. Perhaps that should be max and min depth for a site? This could autocomplete certifications needed to access the site too perhaps?

• Exporting the complete dive log doesn't yet include details about the dive site (just GPS & name). That would be cool to include.

• Exporting the dive sites doesn't yet include the site's thumbnail image or its notes. Exporting the XML saves someone the labor of entering it, but it doesn't share the stories, the enriching the understanding of the site. Ditto this earlier suggestion:

It would be fantastic to have critters (with info & photos) + dive sites and their locations be anonymously shareable to a central/decentralized DB by users across the product.

How it works?

Anyone can add a new site, it does a lookup and offers to use a previously existing site and it's data + enables to see the full data and post suggested modification to existing data (Wikipedia style updating)
Anyone can add critters and it does a similar lookup. You can attach photos and enable them to be shared.
All of these results are stored in a central/decentralized repository for any other user to use via lookups or batch download.

I'd recommend also adding a feature to be able to download all dive sites (and keep up to date either additively or refresh) for a queried "Water landmark", "Region (ex: Raja Ampat or Freshwater Western Atlantic or Lakes) or Country
For critters, enable to download all possible sightings (based on records of other user(s) sightings) for a given dive site (or multi-selected sites).

This would be a massive added bonus to the already splendid application

Cheers!
• In the map view of sites, it would be nice to be able to drag and edit sites' locations. Sometimes it's easier to place a site's location based on the "flag" position of another site, or to assess the accuracy of a whole array of sites in an area.

• A field for the International Union of the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) conservation status for creatures. These could be radio buttons, but there are a few oddballs (e.g. Spotted Eagle Ray).

• Change "species" field to "taxonomy" or similar -- in some cases users may prefer to identify they saw "a turtle" or "a shark" if they don't know more specifically what kind of _____ it was.

Cheers!

• Dive Notes longer than one page don't continue on a second page when exported to PDF.
