Build a way for automatic templates to show a map with Kartographer or location maps everywhere in the Solar System
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Currently there are millions of articles which can take information from Wikidata for coordinates, shapes, geoshapes of related places and Commons .map files. There are also tons of geographic items outside of the Earth, which may use location maps to show the coordinates.

I will try to make a system which allows to discrimate which is the situation and then show the correct map, so we can automate even more the templates.

There are some experiences regarding this:

https://eu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deba_(ibaia)
https://eu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galdakao_(kraterra)
https://eu.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eiffel_dorrea

But we should have a system to make it exportable without deep knowledge.

Event Timeline

It seems interesting, yes. I don't know many things about maps outside the Earth neither about geoshapes. But I collaborated uploading river maps of the Basque Country. In August I will be on holidays , but perhaps I could help doing small work.
