I like to turn complex regulation (legal text) into user friendly online forms.
We are building a web application to make it easier to work with complex regulation. Our team consists of coders and non-coders. I am looking for a way to leverage our team’s capacity to turn complex regulation into flowcharts, and in turn into online forms.
Currently we take a two-step approach:
Step 1: From regulation to flowchart
For instance: An excerpt of the example regulation states:
Where relevant, maintenance of vegetation along road transport infrastructure ensures invasive species do not spread. Mitigation measures have been implemented to avoid wildlife collisions.
That is turned into a flow chart (currently showing LucidCharts):
Step 2: From flowchart to online form.
We can turn these flowcharts into an online form such as TypeForm to get the following:
We need to do this for >250 regulations so some sort of automation is needed, especially for step 2. We can do step 1 manually.
It would be better if the result from step 1 would be a machine-readable format (.json, .xml, other) that step 2 can then digest.
Who knows of a solution for step 1 and step 2 to accomplish the objective? Basically we are looking for the inverse of code2flow and need flow->code
Explores so far:
