Retrieve both primary and secondary coordinates
Open, LowPublic


Problem Wikipedia IOS app 5,5.1 just retrieves coordinates that are primary coordinates not secondary coordinates

Coordinates in Extension:GeoData can be primary and secondary. When retrieving coordinates default is just retrieving primary coordinates. As one Wikipedia article can have just one primary coordinate all coordinates should be retrieved ==> support using gsprimary=all

See longer Change request Change-request-for-wikipedia-for-iphone and the problem with documenting a cemetery were coordinates are stored in Wikidata and "transformed " to the Wikipedia article using Templates that will create secondary coordinates in the article that is not retrieved by Wikipedio IOS app 5,5.1

Suggested solution change and use gsprimary=all see change done in wiki-map that now supports also retrieving secondary coordinates

The problem with secondary coordinates is that you cannot know what they are about... Only that they are present somewhere on an article. For this example, you would get a 1000 POIs all pointing to the same article. Instead, we should look at pulling coordinates straight from wikidata, as detailed in [[phab:T35704]].

That seems like a more sustainable solution.
