Hello, The Maps team at the Wikimedia Foundation is getting closer to make it possible to add interactive maps <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Maps> to Wikipedia. If you've ever used services like Google Maps or Mapquest you may be familiar with interactive maps. We’d like to invite editors to have a conversation on how these maps might be used within articles. We've put together information on how these maps and their style works from a technical perspective <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Maps/Conversation_about_interactive_map_use> – where the data comes from, how maps are styled, how to add an interactive map, and a few example use cases.
In particular we would like to focus the discussion around three key questions (open discussion outside these questions is welcome too). * What types of articles would use interactive maps? * How do these articles differ in their requirements? * Are there any classes of articles whose map styling requirement is fundamentally in conflict with other article classes, thus requiring multiple styles? If you are interested, please visit https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Maps/Conversation_about_interactive_map_use to learn more and get involved. -- Yours, Chris Koerner Community Liaison - Discovery Wikimedia Foundation _______________________________________________ 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>
