The presentation will show shortly the work of en:Wikipedia:WikiProject Geographical coordinates and present the results of this data extraction: de:Wikipedia:WikiProjekt_Georeferenzierung/Wikipedia-World/en. The Wikipedia-World project is a project of the lecturer and use the interwikilinks to bring the coordinates to more than 270 languages. The result are directly included into Wikipedia over OpenStreetMap-integration.

This first part is important to understand from where we come and will only take 5 minutes. The second part of the talk show where we are going in the moment.

The presentation will give an overview about what we are doing with OpenStreetMap on Wikimedia Toolserver. The talk will speak about the future of geocoding inside Wikipedia and the highlighting of complex OSM objects inside the article: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WIWOSM

If there is time the presentation will also talk a about a project for multilingual maps funded by german Wikimedia Chapter, with the aim to get OSM in many languages and profit from this inside Wikipedia.
