21 :: You’ve got your OSM in my Wikipedia! You’ve got your Wikipedia in my OSM

There’s OpenStreetMap in Wikipedia:

University of Windsor - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia 2013-06-17 07-25-14

And there’s Wikipedia in OpenStreetMap

OpenStreetMap 2013-06-17 07-26-45

And I think we are going to only see more convergence as our information seeking becomes more in situ.

Curious how to add geocodes into Wikipedia?  Well you added specially formatted code that will be automatically applied by the Coord Template.

And don’t forget to respect Wikipedia’s Manual of Style and place the coordinates in the right page order:


Where present, appendix and footer sections are presented in this order.[4]

  1. Works or publications
  2. See also
  3. Notes and references
  4. Further reading
  5. External links[5]
  6. Navigation templates (footer navboxes)[6]
  7. Geographical coordinates (if not in Infobox) or {{coord missing}}
  8. Authority control template
  9. Persondata template
  10. Defaultsort
  11. Categories[7]
  12. Stub template

I tried it myself on this page.
