Hello, unfortunately I did not find an answer yet: In Germany there are mushroom advisory centers: A mushroom advisory center, also called a mushroom information center in Austria and a mushroom control center or mushroom control in Switzerland, is a public place where private mushroom pickers can have their collected supposed edible mushrooms examined, identified and tested for toxicity by mushroom experts. (translated based on wikipedia (https://wiki.adminforge.de/wiki/Pilzberatungsstelle) with deepl).

There is a list available of all registered advisors with their private address and (mobile) number: https://www.dgfm-ev.de/service/pilzsachverstaendige

So there are two questions:

  1. How to map those? I couldn't find a corresponding category in iD editor
  2. Would it be possible to automatically scrape https://www.dgfm-ev.de/service/pilzsachverstaendige and put the information in osm? Where to start?

Kind regards and thank you for the answer

There are 3 mapped (https://overpass-turbo.eu/s/1mFa) in Aarau (CH), but incorrectly with the name on a house address. This is a pretty niche topic so probably the best approach is to propose a given key/tag combination.

If these are to be mapped I think it is very important to add opening hours (usually 1 to 2 hours a week during the fungi season) & contact info. At least in CH there is usually a single nominated Pilzkontrolleur/in with a deputy/alternate for a given area. This should be captured too.

You can only scrape the info from sites if they give you explicit permission. There is also a slight issue with personal information as these are usually named individuals at private addresses (not in ZUrich, where the service is run from offices in Kries 11).
