Cartographer meeting

Friday, July 13
16:30 (after presentations)

This is more an event for insider. We will take a look how we can improve maps in Wikipedia, how we can use OpenStreetMap data in new ways and how to connect both projects.

Topics of the developer workshop could be:

  • Where we want to go with maps and coordinates in Wikipedia?
  • What problems are there?
  • What's the aim of maps in Wikipedia? Talk about cartographic quality.
  • Compare dschwen's WikiMiniAtlas with kolossos's OpenStreetMap-Plugin.
  • Bring more Wikipedia-Tags into OSM for WIWOSM
  • Help to translate places in OSM to get multilingual maps.
  • What's with new developments like Tilemill? Can we support mbtiles as a fileformat at Commons as support for our Map_workshop?
  • Make some concepts for new developments to improve maps in Wikipedia.
  • Mobile maps
  • Maps for Wiki Loves Monuments, Maps for Commons, Maps for Upload Wizard
