Add support for geo-coordinate Wikibase datatype for statements about commons files
Open, Needs TriagePublic


User story: As a uploader, I want geo-coordinate support, so that I can specify the exact locations of where the image was taken or the objects portrayed in it.

We have this:
On the front-end, we currently only support statements which take as their input Wikidata entities or quantities

We want this:
We should have support geocoordinate input (at the very least at the same level as Wikidata does)

This ticket is for geo-coordinate support for main statements, and should only be attempted once T224060 (the same thing for qualifiers only) is done

Acceptance Criteria:

  • Users can add statements about files that have geo-coordinate values
  • Users can edit geo-coordinate values for statements
  • Users can see geo-coordinate values for statements
  • Precision (arcminute, arcsecond, ...) can be specified
  • All of the above should be available on the File page and in UploadWizard

Precision is currently not very user friendly on Wikidata if you want to set it. You might want to improve on that a bit and maybe can be backported later to Wikidata.
