When thinking about Open Source GIS and the Open Geospatial Consortium, we currently have these tags:

Do we need to tidy these tags and how?


I think the main source of ambiguity is the tag which seems more often to be used for the Open Geospatial Consortium but sometimes for Open Source GIS.

To disambiguate it and tidy up the other mentioned tags into something easier to work with I am going to suggest:

  1. Merging into a new tag called which would leave as a synonym. There may be some questions here that are about Open Source software other than Open Source GIS but I think they are few and far between, and will only be peripheral to the questions they are placed on. For example, a Python question may have been tagged but more likely it is tagged anyway. If the focus of a question is about Open Source software other than Open Source GIS it is probably off topic anyway.
  2. Retagging any questions about Open Source GIS to - I think there is only one
  3. Merging any remaining questions into which would leave as a synonym.

  • @iant Of course - hence the need for disambiguating open-gis which is currently spanning them

    sorry - I should have waited for a proper screen as well as a keyboard.
