Korea (North / South Korea) Subcategory

Category name

한국 / 조선 (Korea)

Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?


Description of its purpose and which open mapping groups it will serve

Community place for contributors on North and South Korea OSM.

Why is this new category needed instead of being hosted as part of the existing ones?

Here is better place to discuss several each issues for Korea OSM efficiently than a Telegram chatting room.

Is this a new space or does it already exist on other platforms? Where?

We are communicate on a Telegram channel (OSMKorea) and the talk-ko mailing list.

Current volume of messages on the former platforms, if any (per week/per month)

  • Several mails per month are posted at the talk-ko mailing list.

  • OSMKorea telegram channel is very active. Almost chatting everyday.

  • South Korea category on the OSM forum is rarely used.

Is there a transition plan for the old platform to this new one? (please link or describe)

There is no plan currently.

(Optional) A link or list of the category specific guidelines

The OSM Etiquette Guidelines will apply.
