Using Wikidata data, fixing wrong wikipedia and wikidata tags 2 months ago

Speaking of humans - here's a list of all links to humans - something that should never happen in OSM (we don't map people, we map objects :)) https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Wikipedia_Link_Improvement_Project#Linking_to_Humans

I tried to document all different cases, but feel free to add more. Thx!

Using Wikidata data, fixing wrong wikipedia and wikidata tags 2 months ago

Hi Mateusz, so which queries do you think are still missing in the https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Wikipedia_Link_Improvement_Project ?

Using Wikidata data, fixing wrong wikipedia and wikidata tags 2 months ago

There is a project to improve wikipedia links at https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Wikipedia_Link_Improvement_Project - at this point it lists many problems found so far, and SPARQL queries to show them on a map (usually worldwide).

It would be awesome to merge our efforts :)

New MapRoulette challenges: Add missing Wikidata ids to cities and capitals 8 months ago

I cannot zoom in - the "edit in JOSM" uses remote control, which starts download the moment you click the edit button and allow remote control function

New MapRoulette challenges: Add missing Wikidata ids to cities and capitals 8 months ago

Thanks for doing it! I tried to edit http://maproulette.org/map/2477/2156740 but JOSM failed because it tried to download too large of an area, and in iD it was not possible to see the actual object to be edited. I suspect others might have similar problems with other locations as well.

Also, I think the instructions should mention that in iD adding a wikipedia field (not tag) automatically adds wikidata. Whereas in JOSM, there is a plugin to auto-pull wikidata if wikipedia tag is set.

Lastly, I really wish we would offer a suggestion - so that a person can quickly evaluate if the machine is accurate, instead of forcing each edit to be fully manual. Machine-aided manual editing might be much more beneficial.

Nice! Some similar efforts: * https://tools.wmflabs.org/wiwosm/osm-gadget-leaflet/#/?lang=en&article=Berlin * The Wikipedia Android app has a map ("nearby") feature * More at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Maps/Future_Plans#Existing_Tools
