[Hackathon doc sprint] Add Wikidata link to more OpenStreetMap Wiki pages
Open, Needs TriagePublic


A tag page at the OpenStreetMap Wiki can link to the corresponding Wikidata item, but it requires manually adding a link, so not many pages have one. It would be great if more OSM Wiki pages would link to Wikidata items, so that users can more easily access supporting information.

Revision 1498164 adds a link to the Wikidata Query Service as a fallback:



Would be great to get something more automated in here, though.

This proposal would add Wikidata links to taginfo pages as well, based on the links in the infoboxes on the OSM Wiki.

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!

For tips how to manage individual work in Phabricator (noisy notifications, lists of task, etc.), see for available options.
(For the records, two emails were sent to assignee addresses before resetting assignees. See T228575 for more info and for potential feedback. Thanks!)

Is this still needed?
