I don't know if you manages OpenLinkMap. It's a good map. I have adde it to the mapJumper. I would make some suggestions :

All the links appear at the same level of zoom.

Maybe you could use the trick of Nominatim with adding a admin_level to each object for example for a bakery :

Type: shop:bakery Admin Level: 100

and display the link/wikipedia according to the admin_level.

I've sent the author an email. His realname at least can be found clicking "Mehr Informationen" at the map and scrolling to the bottom. ;) -- Malenki 23:30, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for adding my map to your program.

You're right, it's a problem that all links appear at the same level of zoom. For example big sights should be appear earlier than small pubs, etc. But at the moment I haven't got an idea how to solve this. Your idea isn't bad, but thought to solve this by the concentration of markers in a defined area. Then you can also show markers earlier in rural areas than in centres of big citys. Or you combine it so, that, if many markers are in a small area, the more important ones are shown instead of less important ones. But if there's enough space, less important ones are also shown. -- Rurseekatze 11:12, 31 January 2010 (UTC)

Is it possible/conceivable to invert the Wikipedia-Links? I mean this: you only use Information inside the OSM-data base. Wikipedia, though, has their own Information about coordinates in some articles. Can these be read out and added to your map without adding them to OSM first? --Baeuchle 09:49, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

At the moment only wikipedia links inside the OSM database are used. Sure it would be very useful to import also coordinates from wikipedia, but there are some problems.

If I would only use them in my website, I had to check if there are duplicates, for example in OSM and also in Wikipedia is a reference to a certain town for example, then both markers would be shown. In my opinion it would be better to import coordinates from wikipedia into the OSM database, which would prevent duplicates. So also other applications could use both data sources easily from on database.

P.S.: It would be easier when you send messages to me with the private message function of this wiki or OSM. Then I can answer faster because I look very rarely on my discussion page. -- Rurseekatze 14:01, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

New template "User RailwayMapper"

Train This user maps along railway lines and while travelling by train. For more information see OpenRailwayMap.

You can embed {{User RailwayMapper}} into your user page. See my user page. --Nakaner (talk) 21:24, 4 March 2015 (UTC)


Hello! And sorry for bothering you, but descriptions of files you uploaded need to be improved.

You have uploaded files which are licensed as requiring attribution. But right now attribution is not specified properly.

Please, ask for help if something is confusing or unclear in this message.

Please, fix that problem with this uploads - note that images with unclear licensing situation may be deleted.

Attribution may be missing completely or just be specified in nonstandard way, in either case it needs to be improved. Note that using CC-BY files without specifying attribution is a copyright violation, which is often unethical and unwanted. So clearly specifying required attribution is needed if license which makes attribution mandatory was used.

If it is applying to your own work which not based on work by others - then you can select own user name or some other preferred attribution or even change license to for example {{CC0-self}}

For your own work: ensure that it is clearly stated at file page that you created image/took the photo/etc

For works by others - please ensure that there is link to the original source which confirms license and that you used proper attribution, or that source is clearly stated in some other way.

Especially for old OSM-baded maps, made from data before license change on 12 September 2012 you should use "map data © OpenStreetMap contributors" as at least part of attribution

For old OSM Carto maps, which predate license change on 12 September 2012 you can use a special template {{OSM Carto screenshot||old_license}}
