Community Wishlist Survey 2022/Miscellaneous/Show nearby or related articles in maps

Show nearby or related articles in maps

  • Problem: Mapframe is now used in over 1.5 million categories on Commons to display the area that the category covers through the coordinate on Wikidata and the layout of the corresponding item on OpenStreetMap (via commons:Template:Wikidata Infobox) - as well as being used on many other Wikimedia projects. However, it is not currently possible to automatically display related items in the map. Ideally, it should be possible to show items linked to through has part/P527 in the map and/or nearby items (using the example of commons:Category:Teide Observatory)
  • Proposed solution: Have an option that shows the nearby/"part of" items in the maps.
  • Who would benefit: Readers and editors that see a map on Commons and other wikis who then want to explore nearby items.
  • More comments: This proposal was also posted in the 2019 wishlist. Ideally this functionality could also be used in Special:Nearby to show a map of nearby objects rather than a list (As community-requested in 2017. Wikishootme is a current example where nearby Wikipedia articles and Wikidata items are shown on a map (along with Commons photos), but that is on the toolserver rather than built in to Mediawiki.

  •   Support But I don't think it's necessary to use wikidata properties, just need to compare GPS coordinate for any articles that have typed in.C933103 (talk) 15:04, 6 February 2022 (UTC)
    How do you want to compare the coordinates of all articles? Only Wikidata provides a way to easily query all items geolocated to a given area, ~~~~
