Mapping in the least populated area in Germany 29 days ago

Hello,

There are quite a lot of German Wikipedia articles with geolocations around Prenzlau. You can see them with this tool: http://ausleuchtung.ch/geo_wiki/?lat=53.326075013468575&lng=13.85101318359375&zm=12&lang=de&ds=wiki&rd=10

At the same time not so many OSM tags wikipedia=de:, wikimedia_commons=Category:, wikimedia_commons=File:, wikidata= http://ausleuchtung.ch/geo_wiki/?lat=53.306139203637244&lng=13.854961395263672&zm=14&lang=de&ds=osm&rd=10

There is a link to a Wikipedia or a Wikimedia resource at the marker. And if there is no photo in a Wikipedia article, it is possible to add one.

For example, I usually add an OSM tag, and also make a ground and an aerial image for an article. Here are some examples: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schloss_Grandson https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hans_Wilsdorf_Bridge

I wrote this tool http://ausleuchtung.ch/geo_wiki/ o locate Wikipedia and Wikimedia resources for planning mapping and Wikipedia photogrpahy expeditions. It is a way to promote tourism in a region.

Search for geolocations of wikipedia, wikimedia_commons, wikidata OSM tags assigned either to nodes, areas, or ways is implemented.

k1wi, it is a good idea. Thank you. I've implemented already the display of Wikipedia articles geolocations by the wikipedia and wikimedia_commons tag assigned to a node in the same web-application.

It is a bit more complicated to display a geolocation when the wikipedia tag is assigned to an area or a way. It will try to implement it later.

This application uses the Wikipedia API. Actually it is just about 20 lines of code.

I use it to plan expeditions to make ground and aerial photos for Wikipedia articles.

There are other web-applications to find Wikipedia articles geolocations on other maps, but I wanted a clean interface, with the OSM map on the whole screen.

Thank you! I improved wording as you suggested.
