Community Wishlist Survey 2020/Wikivoyage/Creating a coordinate picker

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki

Creating a coordinate picker

  • Problem: Authors need external tools to get a coordinate.
  • Who would benefit: All wikis that use coordinates.
  • Proposed solution: The picker should be written in Javascript, so that it is possible to use it both as a standalone application and a Javascript function by other Javascript scripts. This app should be able to accept an empty string or an address. It should open a Karthographer map with a search field for addresses. Both the OpenStreetMap data set and Wikidata should be used for search (in case of OSM dataset like OSM's Nominatim). Additionally, the user should be able to move the map to adapt the position. The final position should be copied either to the clipboard or returned as a function result.
