I’ve got a foot in both Wikipedia and OpenStreetmap camps and for the purposes
of conflating the geodata and maintaining , it is much easier to have either a
common unique identifier that identifies each object such as some national
identifier from “List of Nationally Culturally Important Properties”, and
insert into both WikiPedia and OpenStreetmap.
For this case the next best solution is to link both ways i.e.:
Openstreetmap: use the wikipedia:key
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:wikipedia or the wikidata key
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:wikidata when it moves beyond “defacto”
status or better.
Wikipedia/Wikidata: use a key that points to the OpenStreetmap object, be it a
node, way, area or polygon e.g. http://www.openstreetmap.org/node/1253343627
However according to
https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Collaboration_with_Wikipedia the current
practice is to link from Wikipedia back to a geo-coordinate, that would work as
well, just a bit more effort if it’s not an exact match as any checking routine
needs to allow for a bit of error.
This way it is reasonably possible to keep both aligned and join (in the
database sense) the information in both directions without having to put in a
huge amount of effort into comparing the two data sets
