Tech News edit

Hi Timur, your edit to Tech/News/2021/27 happened after the delivery. I added a correction to Tech/News/2021/29 instead. /Johan (WMF) (talk) 22:54, 13 July 2021 (UTC)Reply

Hey @Johan (WMF): thank you very much! Sorry for editing after delivery, next time I will post it in the following week. Best --Timur Vorkul (WMDE) (talk) 08:40, 14 July 2021 (UTC)Reply
No harm done, it's just that almost no one would see it. (: /Johan (WMF) (talk) 09:58, 14 July 2021 (UTC)Reply

New show nearby articles feature on Kartographer maps edit

Hello!

 
nearby articles on a Kartographer map (round markers)

You receive this message because you have voted for “Show nearby or related articles in maps” in this year’s Community Wishlist Survey.

I am happy to let you know that soon it will be possible to automatically display nearby articles in a map on Commons and other Wikimedia projects using Kartographer. This feature is one of the improvements to Kartographer the Technical Wishes Team from Wikimedia Germany has been working on. Each Kartographer generated map in full-screen mode is now given a new “Show nearby articles” button at the bottom. It can be used to show and hide up to 50 geographically close articles.

The deployment of this feature is planned for 12 October on a first group of wikis. After the first feedback phase, more wikis will follow. Read more on our project page. Your feedback and comments to our open questions on this feature are very much appreciated on this discussion page. Thank you! -- Timur Vorkul (WMDE)
