Analysis of MedLinePlus structure

Following the download of the raw materials as shown in Health_portal/Step2. A thorough review was conducted of of the downloaded files to determine several key features

  1. The overall organizational structure of the materials as they are structured and linked on the MedLinePlus site.
  2. The internal HTML structure of a prototype health topic page See Health_portal/Step3b

Overall web-site structure

The main index page (Level1 index), lists five major groupings of topics. Below each of these is a collection of links to Level2 index pages:

  • Body Location/Systems

From the Level2 index pages there are links to actual content pages (Level3 "leaves"). Any individual health topic (leaf) may be linked from multiple Level2 index pages.

There is an alternative master index page with a listing of all health topics in alphabetical order [1], however this may pose some issues when it comes to i18n and l10n.

Need to review images grabbed, keep navigation, lose ADAM pics. Unfortunately, most of the images used on the health topic pages are from the non-free A.D.A.M. source, Mika may be able to help hunt down suitable replacements, see User:Mika#images, which would be very nice. Try running the scripts above with out the -p flag set and compare filesets, transfer over those page-element images that are still needed. Use names of images to be excluded to hunt them down in the HTML for editing out.

Need to trim some stuff in each downloaded health topic:

  • Tone down NIH branding while preserving attribution, lose or modify footer for instance. Keep some attribution, preserve a link back to NIH site for original or updated content. Possibly through a "leaving bundle to WWW" page.
  • Need to figure out what to do with links that are next hop. They go off to stuff that may have copyright or be too US specific. Can delete big chunks of bottom of each page. Provide opportunity for local MinHealth link insertion, "local branding" as well as locally relevant content.
    • Some pages have sections like Games or Languages that mostly link off to a small handful of other sites. These require further investigation to see if more content can be pulled in (licensing, FLASH compatibility, etc.).
  • Nice feature to look at. I think in the current form it should allow easy back and forth between English and Spanish. This provides some opportunity to increase bilingual understanding of medical terms.
  • It might make sense to globally restructure for easier i18n/l10n. For instance, this currently uses separate folder for Spanish, that is fine, but try to i18n-ize the structure so that is one or more lang-xx folders.
