I have successfully used <maplink> embedding objects in wikipedia-fr,
of the both types :
* raw geojson inclusion
* references to wikidata objects via Geoshaphes service
This is really great, and particularly the latest (geoshapes / wikidata tags).
I hope this will motivate the 3 communities (WP, WD and OSM) to set the tag
But I noticed a strange behavior : when adding the wikidata tag on an OSM
then including a maplink tag on a wiki page, the object is not available at
There seems to be a delay of several hours, or maybe several days.
I suppose there is a cache of some sort to wait for.
Please, do you know where this delay comes from ? an OSM cache ? or on the
geoshapes side ?
And what is its typical duration ?
For an example, on my test page :
For the moment, the 1st maplink (Limites du PNR de Chartreuse)
is displayed, as I created it a few days ago, but the following ones are not
My questions are maybe odd, but I plan to largely advertise these new features
towards the french WP community. I would like to be able to explain if sometimes
it doesn't work well at once, in order to not discourage people who would like
their first edit.
