Community Wishlist Survey 2019/Maps/Expand functionality of the map editor in VisualEditor

Expand functionality of the map editor in VisualEditor

  • Problem: To edit maps created with Kartographer, a user need to edit GeoJSON. This makes it a lot harder to make functional maps. Now it is hard to know how to add different kinds of pushpins (which ones are even available) and how to style them.
  • Who would benefit: More editors would be able to make better maps which in the end would benefit readers.
  • Proposed solution: Make an editor with fields/dropdown menus for properties/markers so that need for editing the GeoJSON code gets minimized.
