Hi Joe These features are promizing. My observations will be focused on the interrelations between OSM and Wikipeda and my perception that OSM contributors need more documentation to support Wikipedians.
I was contacted recently by a Wikipedian who talked to me about the maplink feature and was looking how to represent a river (watershed or other possibilities). From our exchanges, we saw different possibilities but I could not find what to do on the OSM side to use these features. It says that we can both represent polygons or lines. Adding wikidata and waiting up to four days, I had no success. Good examples that are working would help. I have a Wikipeda account and also tried to use these features in a wikipedia page using mapframe but with no success. Should we simply add a wikidata and wikipedia will take care. Should we define a mapframe in a wikipedia page? Or the two options are available? The example below shows an OSM relation for a polygon that is well represented in Wikipedia.https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/R%C3%A9servoir_La_Grande_4#/maplink/0 But adding a wikidata tag to a OSM waterway riverbank about four days ago, I only see a node represented on the wikipedia maplink map. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rivi%C3%A8re_L'Assomption#/maplink/0 We need more infos on what type of OSM features can be represented in Wikipedia. Also, should the wikidata be unique or not in OSM. For example, if I represent a municipality with both a relation for the polygon borders and a node for the OSM place, where should I place the wikidata? On the relation? on the node? On both? Or two different wikidatga iD's? It depends if I want to represent the polygon or the node or both? Territories are also interesting to represent. We often see images in Wikipedia but how to make a link to an OSM object in Wikipedia? See for example Longueuil, Québec who has two different wikidata for polygon and node. Wikipedia maplink shows a node, but not sure this is related to the node wikidata. https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Longueuil#/maplink/0https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/6948543 https://www.openstreetmap.org/node/252025539 Pierre Le jeudi 3 mai 2018 16 h 53 min 21 s HAE, Joe Matazzoni <jmatazz...@wikimedia.org> a écrit : Hello OpenStreetMap community,I’m the product manager of the Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) Collaboration Team. We’ve been working on project recently called Map Improvements 2018  that some of you will find interesting. As most of you probably know, WMF maps are powered by OSM data. The most significant new feature that we’ll be releasing very soon as part of this project is map “internationalization”—which means that’s WMF maps will display in the language of the user, rather than of the territory mapped. I wrote a recent post describing this feature and how it works . We’re also about to spread our embedded maps capability (“mapframe”) to hundreds of Wikipedias that don’t have the feature now. The internationalization release will follow soon after. These should be welcome developments for the OSM community, I hope, since they will put OSM-powered maps in front of many millions of new users. We don’t anticipate that these new maps will put any strain on OSM performance. The impact I do foresee—and hope for—is that the new exposure of multilingual map data will inspire many more Wikimedians to contribute to OSM. This is likely to happen when users start to see, as they will for the first time, that names in their language for some features and places are not available. I’m writing today to let you know that these changes—and possibly these new contributors—are coming, and to ask for any guidance you think I should pass on to Wikimedians who might like to contribute to OSM. We plan to write a Help page on our end that will pass on some basic advice. And I will certainly link to relevant OSM Help pages, including this"Welcome to Wikipedia users”  page. I’d very much like to get your suggestions for a short list of Help links on OSM—pages you think a user coming in to add multilingual names would find useful. Also please send your thoughts about any information you think I particularly should impart. Please post your thoughts and ideas to the project talk page . Thanks for your help, and for providing the valuable service you do to Wikimedia contributors and readers around the world. https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Map_improvements_2018 https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Map_improvements_2018#April_18,_2018,_Special_Update_on_Map_Internationalization https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Welcome_to_Wikipedia_users https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk:Map_improvements_2018 _____________________ Joe Matazzoni Product Manager, Collaboration Wikimedia Foundation, San Francisco "Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge." _______________________________________________ talk mailing list email@example.com https://lists.openstreetmap.org/listinfo/talk
