Wikiproyecto Limpieza es un proyecto en curso para ayudar a desarrollar y mantener claro, bien escrito, vinculado y accesible el wiki, proporcionando una amplia variedad de información en apoyo del proyecto OpenStreetMap. Proporciona un soporte en buena medida invisible pero vital para el proyecto, asegurando que todo el contenido creado en el wiki por numerosas personas sobre los más diversos temas y en muchos idiomas diferentes se integran en un todo coherente. Bueno... ¡ésa es la intención!

Objetivos del proyecto limpieza

The objectives of this cleanup project are to ensure that the OpenStreetMap wiki is an accessible, clear, and useful resource for people that are either contributing to the OpenStreetMap or using its data. To meet these goals, the wiki should:

  • Provide background information to the public about the goals of OpenStreeMap over time and its progress.
  • Help new contributors to get started on OpenStreetMap by providing information about how to tag things properly and use various mapping tools.
  • Help co-ordinate mapping in every part of the world
  • Support people that want to use OpenStreetMap data and software for some other purpose then contributing data.
  • Help developers to understand what related software projects exist and how to use them properly.
  • Provide a place for people to discuss new tagging proposals
  • Ensure that the content is consistently organized and easily accessible
  • Maintain a dynamic and creative environment which can accommodate new types of content and will continue to evolve to meet new challenges

Organización del proyecto limpieza

The Cleanup project is in part a project to increase conformance with the Wiki guidelines which lay out some suggestions for how to present information within the OSM wiki. Questions about how to organise content on the wiki are outlined and discussed on Wiki organisation. Issues can be tagged using a range of Wiki labels which propose certain types of action/re-organisation, inviting people to discuss. Much of the work is done by whoever gets to it first, however from time to time there have been "Wiki Cleanup Drives" where a number of contributors work as a team to tidy up the wiki within a period of time with a particular goal in mind.

Do be aware renaming/moving/deleting pages can cause a bit of upset, so it can be better to discuss them first on the page which is to be changed (See also Wiki Help#Some general guidelines).

Artículos de claves y etiquetas


Tag documentation (pages with "Tag:" and "Key:" prefixes) can be very controversial, and is particularly tricky as we cannot expect all stakeholders (mappers!) to participate in wiki editing or wiki discussion. Many mappers choose not to edit the wiki. However... there are actually all sorts of simple edits we can make to clean up tag documentation and make it more consistent, without getting into any debates! Every tag should at least have some words of description. There are three different places where a description appears, at the top of the main page about the tag, in the right-hand template of the tag page, and in the table on the key page. For this simple task, find tags which are missing a description in any of those places, and copy the description from the other places. Most commonly this seems to be copying the description from the key page to the other two. Any unnecessary differences between the three descriptions for a tag should also be reconciled. The three descriptions need not be identical, although normally they should only differ if the description on top of the main tag page is a little longer. Often descriptions have been improved or updated, but only in one of the three places. Use your judgment to eliminate the older descriptions. f you find a frequently used key that has no description page at all, check whether the key already has documented and/or more common alternatives. If that isn't the case, write a description page for the key to improve our documentation. Make sure that you understand what the key means, though! When there is any doubt, discuss your intentions beforehand. You can identify undocumented keys because they have no link from the key to the wiki in the Map Data view. There is also a list of the commonest undocumented tags at Taginfo.


Some tags have photos which show up on Map Features (added to the key page tables) but without any image on the tag page itself. Where there is no image at all on the tag page, it makes sense to set the main image of the tag (appearing in the template) to be the same image as seen on the key table. This is easy and requires no judgment or writing ability at all! Similarly it makes sense to use the image from the tag documentation in another language. Where tag pages have no image (and check there's no image on the key page already) we need to find an image to illustrate the tag. Although we can just pull in any image from Wikimedia commons, or Flickr, it may be preferable to use mapping photos. What does this thing really look like while you're out mapping? In cases where we have a choice of which image best exemplifies the map feature, we should aim to be consistent in our choice between the tag page and the key page table. If you're swapping in a image which you judge to be better for a particular tag, you should keep the other photo by creating "photos" section with a gallery. See Tag:shop=bakery#Photos for example. Tag documentation pages that have no image set and display a generic image instead are listed in Category:Feature pages with missing images. Pages referring to images that do not exist are listed in Category:Pages with broken file links. If you find a frequently used key that has no description page at all, check whether the key already has documented and/or more common alternatives. If that isn't the case, write a description page for the key to improve our documentation. Make sure that you understand what the key means, though! When there is any doubt, discuss your intentions beforehand. You can identify undocumented keys because they have no link from the key to the wiki in the Map Data view. There is also a list of the commonest undocumented tags at Taginfo.

Incidencias generales de páginas

Longitud de las páginas

A lot of pages have problem with their length.


Un esbozo es un artícullo que es demasiado corto para proporcionar información suficiente sobre el tema del que trata. En orden a identificar los esbozos, coloca {{stub}} o {{tag stub}} si el artículo se refiere a una etiqueta en cualquier página que sólo contenga una breve descripción. Un artículo deja de ser un esbozo una vez que se le agregan más secciones. Para conocer los esbozos de artículos que necesitarían ser mejorados, consulta Category:ES:Esbozos y su equivalente en inglés, Category:Stubs.

Páginas cortas

Special:ShortPages lists pages which have very little content. In fact towards the top of the list they have zero content. Many of these are caused by wiki editors mistakenly believing that this is a good procedure for deleting the page. They should be labeling the page using Template:Delete, but often a redirect would be more appropriate than a delete anyway. You may need to check the history, and do some searches to figure out the best page to redirect to. In cases where there is some short content on a page, normally this should be expanded to included more description and linkage to higher level concepts / place pages etc (Wiki guidelines#Linking) All of which requires a bit of effort to figure out what's going on with the page. Also you may want to add {{stub}} label.

Páginas con el argumetno «ns» en la plantila de idiomas

The template {{Languages}} formerly needed an extra parameter |ns = when the page is outside the main namespace. This parameter is no longer needed and the wiki code can be simplified. Pages with the old syntax fill the category Pages with ns argument to the languages template.

Añadir o eliminar claves de ordenación predeterminadas

The {{DEFAULTSORT:sortkey}} directive changes the order that pages are displayed in wiki categories (but not the text of the link).

Claves de ordenación predeterminadas que pueden usarse

A default sort key can be used if there is an accented letter or letters in the title of the page, to sort ignoring the accent rather than at the end of the alphabet. If the page has a genuinely distinct sort key add the |defaultsort = no parameter to the {{Languages}} template (not needed for the JA: namespace where it is implicit because almost all pages whose title has been translated to Japanese need a different sortkey by transliterating the title to phonetic kanas rather than the orthographic title).

Claves de ordenación predeterminadas que deben evitarse (a veces)

Mediawiki automatically ignores namespaces known to this wiki installation when it sorts categories. In addition, the {{Languages}} template adds a default sort key consisting of the page name without the language prefix. You shouldn’t put a redundant {{DEFAULTSORT:sortkey}} statement that is the same as the page name because it breaks category sorting if the page is ever moved or the markup is copied into a translation with a different name so it is worth removing if there is one. An actual example was the category Category:ES:Buildings which was moved to Category:ES:Edificios but was still sorted under B in categories. On the opposite, you'll need a different sort key when the default one computed cannot work reliably (for example if there are some accents in the translated name, breaking the sort order: all sort keys are made to be adjustable according to the rules of the language in which the page is written: removing sort keys is not a solution when in fact you must change them for another one, which is not simply the same as the page name, even if the language code prefix is dropped).


There are multiple issues related to links that can use fixing. When fixing links, it is generally a good idea to not edit talk or user pages. Even if they contain links that can be updated or removed.

Vías muertas

Special:DeadendPages lists pages which are a dead end - they do not link to any other wiki page! Wiki pages should be well linked (Wiki guidelines#Linking). As every page should start with a few sentences introducing the topic in broad terms, it is often possible to drop in some links to related concepts there. Dead end pages may be completely missing an introduction, so you need to figure out what the page is about in order to write a sentence or two including links. There is no prioritization of this task.

Enlaces internos

Many pages still refer to pages describing services that are no longer available. Versions of the Main Page, Map features and Beginners' guide in some languages do this. Some of these make sense for the historical record but many are misleading.

Enlaces externos

Some links point to services that are now offline. weblink search

URLs relativas al protocolo

Some OSM websites are now available with HTTP Secure. Links to these sites should be changed to protocol-relative, beginning with // instead of http://, for instance // Note that they must be enclosed with [ ]. Protocol-relative URLs should not be used when the site cannot be accessed with https or provokes a warning message from browsers. Links to these sites can be changed:


Creación de categorías

Special:WantedCategories lists categories which are in use, but where the category page has not been created with a description. The list is ordered by how many pages are using the category. For categories with 5 or more members, it would seem sensible to create a category page. To do this you will need to write a few clear sentences explaining what the category is. Often these most wanted categories are caused by use of a template, so you may need to understand what the template represents. This investigation may reveal that a template is in fact not sensible, or needs redesigning, so a different solution presents itself. This will also present an opportunity to choose a different name for the category before you create the category page.

Añadir categorías a las páginas

Many articles need the associated categories added to them.

Aplicaciones móviles

Considerable cleanup effort has already gone into the documentation of mobile apps, the root of which can be found at Software/Mobile. The pages per operating system there (particularly Android and iOS) have long lists of apps with a wiki page per app. This is good way to organise this, giving plenty of space for developers and users to share ideas and describe apps from an OpenStreetMap perspective, but some of these pages remain as unloved stubs.

Descripción básica de marcadores de posición

In accordance with Wiki guidelines#Introduction, ensure every app page has at least a single sentence in the main part of the wiki page. This might simply state "'''name of app''' is an [[Android]] app {{stub}}". This is better than no content at all.

Descripción de características

Going beyond this, write a description of the app based on a quick look at the website and try to figure out the most interesting features from an OpenStreetMap perspective. Going beyond that you might install the app on your phone, and try to figure out exactly how you make use of the relevant features (How do you get to see OpenStreetmap? How do you record tracks/add bugs/make edits) and upload some screenshots. Ideally the app developer themselves would do some of this, but in many cases the app developer is unaware of, or not interested in being involved in the OpenStreetMap wiki. Descriptions on our wiki should generally be positive. We always like people building OpenStreetMap apps even if they're not well polished! (Go give them good appstore reviews for the same reason!) However we should probably stop short of copying sales pitches stuffed with weasel words from their websites, and we can flag "limitations" of the apps in our wiki pages, particularly if this is done in the spirit of feedback encouraging developers to make improvements. Going beyond this, there are lots of basic defining features of apps, the details of which are captured in the templates on the right (to feed into the summary tables). That's working well. The information should also be written out in a slightly more longhand way in the page content itself.

A few german users start to refactor the guide from scratch. It's bad that this will exclude international folks from the very first start, but hey someone is doing the job and I will try to assist and keeping an eye on the I18n aspects :) Please see DE talk:Beginners' guide --!i!

I restructured the page and moved out the content describing the various applications of OSM. I left the content giving instructions on how to use OSM by oneself, but there was actually not much such content. There is much more instructive pages in this wiki which could be made accessible by Using OpenStreetMap. --Cantho (talk) 04:02, 5 February 2014 (UTC)
I started cleaning up the guide. See Talk:Beginners'_guide#Guide_2017_cleanup. -- SwiftFast (talk) 07:53, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
