The Discovery's maps team would like to share the progress we have been making, and our future goals.
* Kartographer extension is getting closer to being deployed. It will allow editors to insert a map and add article specific data into wiki pages. Kartographer has a neat Visual Editor interface thanks to Ed Sanders. We hope to add a good VE maps editor there as well. See  * Wikipedia Android app now shows all nearby articles on a map (Kudos to Dmitry Brant) * GeoHack (gps link in the upper right corner) for Russian and Italian Wikipedias have switched to the new map. English wiki will have it soon as well (Kudos to Putnik and Legoktm) * English & Russian WikiVoyage has switched to the new map * Maps database is automatically refreshed from OSM (thanks to Max Semenik and Alex Kosiaris) * We now have a map without place labels   DEMO: http://vem3.wmflabs.org/wiki/Main_Page  https://maps.wikimedia.org/?s=osm *== Community Projects ==* * Simon Legner has been actively developing article map  with some help from Tim Alder and Daniel Schwen * Several people are working on Wikimaps Warper  tool to add and position scanned map images. * Kartotherian tile server code has been improved  and deployed to a non-WMF site. This makes us very happy because it shows that our code is useful to others.  https://tools.wmflabs.org/wiwosm/osm-gadget-leaflet/#/?lang=de&article=Berlin  http://wikimaps.wikimedia.fi/wikimaps-tools/wikimaps-warper/  https://github.com/zoondka/kartozoa *== Future plans / goals ==* This quarter, our goal is to improve the content discovery experience on Wikivoyage by rolling out maps to all Wikivoyages. Specific tasks can be tracked in Phabricator: #maps , #kartographer . These are some of the tasks we plan to do: * Deploy Kartographer extension to Wikivoyage * Add maps editor to Kartographer * Work with Operations to make maps a production-level service. This includes adding more caching and backend servers. * Offer maps as a more stable and feature rich alternative to geohack/wiwosm/WikiMiniAtlas * Implement cross-wiki shared data storage * Implement static service capable of generating a map image with the article-specific overlays * Allow editors to add maps directly to Wikipedia * Implement the most requested features from the Future Plans   https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/maps/  https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/tag/kartographer/  https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Maps/Future_Plans _______________________________________________ Wikimedia-l mailing list, guidelines at: https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Mailing_lists/Guidelines New messages to: Wikimediafirstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe: https://lists.wikimedia.org/mailman/listinfo/wikimedia-l, <mailto:wikimedia-l-requ...@lists.wikimedia.org?subject=unsubscribe>
