Talk:Proposed features/External links

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The purpose of storing the Wikipedia link is so people can access it's wikipedia page, likewise the website tag, making it easier for people to access information about the place. There's lot more metadata about places we Could store that would add value to the data, too much perhaps to store in the OSM database direct. What about starting to consider a seperate database to store metadata about places, and a unique place identifier linking the place to its data?...

The Wiki syntax makes it difficult for me to understand what is proposed for the wikipedia feature. The key is to be "wikipedia", but what is the value?

"Tower of London" ?
"Tower_of_London" ?
"[[wikipedia:Tower of London|London]]" ?

Definitely not the last one. Probably the first one? Ojw 13:17, 19 February 2007 (UTC)
