Create map of all past meetups of WikiClubWest
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Wiki Club West, the western australian branch of Wikimedia Australia has had over 60 meetups since 2007, and they have occurred in various locations in Metropolitan Perth, Western Australia, in order to ascertain areas of coverage, a map is required. There may have been less than 10 meetings that have occurred outside the defined limit of Metropolitan Perth, and an item incorporating a larger 200 km radius from the centre of Perth might be of help as well. Some events have had openstreet map linked to events, but the usage is not consistent over the range of meetings, and not all meetings have had adequate location identification, however it is hoped to add in items that locations can be identified later.

Samwilson added a project: Wikimedia Australia.

I suggest this is created as https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Data:WikiClubWest.map – that way, we can all add to it easily.

Another idea: once T230851: Improve map and calendar filter function is resolved, and we add past meetups to Space, they could all be browsed on the map there.

Samwilson renamed this task from Create map of all pastmeetups of Wiki Club West to Create map of all past meetups of WikiClubWest.Sep 4 2019, 1:26 AM
Samwilson claimed this task.

I've created https://wikimedia.org.au/wiki/Event_map
and all the data can be queried at:
https://wikimedia.org.au/wiki/Special:Drilldown/events?_single&region=WA&format=map&formatBy=coordinates

The thing left now @JarrahTree is to add the remaining event pages for past events. I think we can do this over time, and at least events from now will appear on the map.

Thanks Sam, that will take time
