Investigate how Wikimaps Warper can benefit from structured data on Wikimedia Commons
Open, LowPublic


According to @Susannaanas: Wikimaps Warper is a tool with an API in Labs for georectifying maps. Can be used as is and take advantage of structured data for Commons or would benefit from refactoring into a more lightweight tool

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!)

Not sure how @Susannaanas feels about it, but IMO this task is still valid. A maps warper is a valuable tool for Wikimedia Commons, and it does make sense to make it compatible with structured data. Not sure how to resource this and how to make this happen though.
