Hi all, Wikivoyage is a travel-based wiki, and was recently incarnated as a Wikimedia project. In its previous history, there weren’t any solid attempts at introducing and integrating OpenStreetMaps, but much progress has been made at http://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Wikivoyage:Dynamic_maps_Expedition and examples can be seen internally at http://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Wheaton, which relies on an external map server http://maps.wikivoyage-ev.org/w/poimap2.php?lat=52.02912&lon=10.60377&zoom=16&layer=O&lang=de&name=Hornburg. I think we are pretty close to start site-wide implementation, but before that, it looks like we need to sort out attribution and legal issues.
I know Google Maps data is not accepted here, and we have tried our best to steer users to use OSM data, but some are still more comfortable using Google Maps “What’s here” as a way to pinpoint coordinates. From what I understand, that isn’t kosher either - is this correct?
We would definitely want to work more closely with OSM, at both importing and exporting data. Plans have been discussed to batch geocode points of interest from the OSM database and also for us to send back new Wikivoyage POIs to OSM. Since coordinate data is still in infancy, if OSM are unsure of Wikivoyage sources, it is still early enough to remove such data and require stronger attribution in the future, to make sure we follow licensing more closely. What would be the suggested process here?
On a user basis, we could ask for a source, but what would be the required attribution on a site basis, as we’ll be merging OSM geodata into our listings, but some will also be non-OSM/personal geodata. Has enough information been added for a Produced Work?
