[Epic] Improve interlinkedness of OSM and Wikidata
Open, LowPublic


The OSM shapes service is coming, however it won't be able to reach its true potential due to the low number of OSM objects marked with Wikidata IDs. We need to take measures to improve this situation both in quantity and quality.

I propose to start with analysis and create a tool that would analyze the links and list:

  • Broken links
  • WP link exists but not WD
  • Link destination has been moved
  • Suspicious links, e.g. this links to a general article about crosses, not a particular cemetery cross.
  • Multiple objects pointing at the same article/ID
