Show coordinates in PDF file
Closed, DeclinedPublic


Inline coordinates are shown but not title coordinates. They should be displayed somewhere (maybe at the end of the article text, above section "Text and image sources, contributors, and licenses"?)

This task could use more explanation.

Was there any change?
I tried before with dewiki:Kessel (Königssee) and couldn't see the coordinates in the PDF. Now they are inserted in the PDF at the end of page 1.

Same for enwiki, for example enwiki:Bay of Quinte -> PDF at the end of page 3.

Title coordinates are there to be displayed in non-content area of skins. However, PDF files have no skins and are there for reading only, so I feel like coordinates shouldn't be shown.

In my point of view, if there are coordinates given in the article they should also be visible in the PDF file as they are a relevant part of a related topic.

They should be mentiond in text, upper right icons are more of metadata imho.

Millions of articles use those coordinates. But as long as they are displayed in the PDF document at the end of the article, I'm satisfied.

So this could be tagged as resolved instead of declined.
