Our goal is the complete representation of all castles and palaces on OpenStreetMap (OSM) and Wikipedia (WP)!
From Tuesday 20th October until Monday 30th November we offer a writing contest as an Editathon. Write your own article on a Swiss castle or improve one. Shoot and upload photos and implement them in existing articles. Create or correct data concerning castles. Make Wikipedia and its sister projects a bit better. Take part on this event. For more information please click here.
On Saturday, April 27, 2019, a working meeting of both communities (and other interested parties) took place at Lenzburg Castle to coordinate the different works and to bring the different projects and subprojects closer together.
Another meeting is planned for 2020 during the general assembly of Wikimedia CH: See 'Events'.
