Geocoding and then what

Here's an image that I geocoded today,
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Velikiy_Novgorod_Detinets_04.jpg

The "Camera position" box has links to OSM and Google Maps,
links leading to maps showing images, but not this
image.

When will my image be visible on these maps?

Here is an image I uploaded and geocoded on June 26,
https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Pedestrian_crossing_pushbutton_elektrisk_bureau.jpg

That's more than a week ago, but it doesn't show on the maps yet.

Best way to use a map in an infobox nowadays

(Putting my ca.wiki volunteer hat on)


There is a very old template in ca.wiki about mountain huts [1]. It basically looks and works as it looked and worked in 2007. I'm thinking that it is perhaps a good opportunity to try something I have been wanting to try for a long time: embed a map in a template.

I'm more or less aware how you can do this with Template:Geobox or similar systems relying on collections of maps to put a dot on. However, I was wondering what is the state of the art in the times of Lua, OSM, and Wikidata. Is it possible to have something like this

* Editor introduces geolocation coordinates and saves.
* The right OSM tile is chosen based on the coordinates, showing e.g. the 50km surrounding the place.
* If users clicks the map, they jump to an actual map where they can zoom etc. Or at least a bigger and more detailed static image showing, say, a 200 km range.

If none of this exists yet, which template would you recommend using today, and what project should I look at for new releases in this direction?

Thank you.

Thanks for the summary. Very helpful.

wikipedia to OSM

Hi,
I don't know if this has been reported here or not.

A quick email to let you know that some time ago our own Cristian
Consonni and Simone F. released a nice wikipeda to OpenStreetMap
integration which is online at:

http://geodati.fmach.it/gfoss_geodata/osm/wtosm/index_2.html

it allows you to add coordinates to wikipedia articles and add
wikipedia page links to OSM objects. Uses Catscan to find out which
pages do require coordinates.

The tool is currently only available in italian. In the UI: "temi"
reads "themes", and "regioni" reads "regions"

Thanks,
Simone.

warper

hi,
I've seen few maps on commons that I would like to warp with
http://warper.wmflabs.org/

how do I do that?

it seems there is no way to select a commons image for that task

any other warper around?

Thanks,
Simone.

Output from Zurich Hackathon - yet another maps extension!

During the Zurich hackathon, DJ Hartman, Aude and I knocked up a
generic maps prototype extension [1]. We have noticed that many maps
like extensions keep popping up and believed it was time we
standardised on one that all these extensions could use so we share
data better.

We took a look at all the existing use cases and tried to imagine what
such an extension would look like that wouldn't be too tied into a
specific use case.

The extension we came up with was a map extension that introduces a
Map namespace where data for the map is stored in raw GeoJSON and can
be edited via a JavaScript map editor interface. It also allows the
inclusion of maps in wiki articles via a map template.

Dan Andreescu also created a similar visualisation namespace which may
want to be folded into this as a map could be seen as a visualisation.
I invite Dan to comment on this with further details :-)!

I'd be interested in people's thoughts around this extension. In
particular I'd be interested in the answer to the question "For my
usecase A what would the WikiMaps extension have to support for me to
use it".

Thanks for your involvement in this discussion. Let's finally get a
maps extension up on a wikimedia box!

Fwd: We need to organize a Tech Talk (with OSM)

For your information, today at the Wikimedia Hackathon some of us had the pleasure to walk, learn, and talk with Simon Poole, chairman of the OpenStreetMap Foundation. 


Long story short, we could talk more and collaborate better beyond the priceless personal dedication of some volunteers with links in both projects.

Let's have a chat! Online. In your opinion, which are the most important technical topics that Wikimedia and OpenStreetMap should discuss?


---------- Forwarded message ----------
From: Quim Gil <qgil <at> wikimedia.org>
Date: Saturday, May 10, 2014
Subject: We need to organize a Tech Talk
To: simon <at> osm

Please check with your community which are the 1-2 topics that they would like to discuss with Wikimedia Foundation engineers and the technical community in general.

Let's start with 1-2 only. If there are more, let's document all of them at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/OpenStreetMap

See also https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Upstream_projects -- OSM *must* be in our radar.

Thank you for the conversation and the walk!
