Create an index of available maps and layers
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Brainstorming. I think we have a problem with discoverability of esp. our community maintained layers and maps. I think we should keep an index somehow, or maybe just add them all to https://maps.wikimedia.org, so that they can easily be discovered and reused

I recently experimented with something like this in: https://tools.wmflabs.org/maplayers-demo
I think it shows promise and would help with the stimulating the use of WMF maps

Ideally I think long term, it should be easier to "publish" a layer somehow. Not sure yet what that means....

api with urls, tilespecs and attribution info ?

Sounds like this will be a community-driven effort; patches welcome.
