Kartographer's "External maps" links do not update when map is interacted with
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

The "External maps" links (shown when a map is full screen and the button is clicked) do not update themselves when the map is interacted with, for example zooming in, and/or clicking on a point marker. This is especially noticeable on maps with multiple point markers and/or other features. Example from a wikipedia user at https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?itle=Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Western_Australia&oldid=966137831#Map_of_State_Register_of_Heritage_Places_requiring_photos :

There might be a bug in the first map. I did this:

  1. Click the map, which takes me to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Western_Australia#/map/0
  2. Zoom in on Comer St, South Perth/Como, to the point where scale marker shows 100m
  3. Click on the blue marker, to display Pagoda, Como, 31.990915°S 115.855236°E
  4. Click "External maps" in bottom right corner, then Google Maps
  5. Google Maps shows at https://www.google.com/maps/place/31%C2%B056'23.3%22S+115%C2%B056'01.5%22E/@-31.9398062,115.93375,10z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x0:0x0!8m2!3d-31.9398062!4d115.93375?hl=en and the marker is in Redcliffe, nowhere near the Pagoda.

I get similar problems with Kingstown Barracks on Rottnest - Google Maps goes to the same place in Belmont/Redcliffe, as does Open Street Map and Bing Maps. Same problem with Pale Moon, Firefox and Google Chrome.

The expected result would be that the coordinates of the last feature you clicked will be the ones used in the external map links, with a zoom level that matches the current zoom of the katographer map.
