Pikne added a comment to T313010: Map shows wrong shape in the article, but not in full size map view - shape doesn't update .

In the meantime associated OSM relation (r14300290) has been changed to unsupported type=site. So empty data is expected now.

Pikne added a comment to T316759: TemplateData output should generate an [edit] link that launches the TemplateData GUI.

Currently it reuses message for previous button text, but it'd nice to use different capitalization (lower case first letter) for a bracket link, similar to bracketed links that appear in e.g. recent changes or history pages.

Pikne added a comment to T322351: Investigation: Keep simplified geoshapes in maps database.

My understanding of how this all works is vague. If simplified data is kept in addition to unsimplified data then I suppose I got the wrong idea what this task is about.

So this means that raster tiles too would be generated based on inaccurate data? I doubt this is desirable. Don't we also need unsimplified data so that T155919 could be improved in some form?

Pikne added a comment to T321236: geoshapes and geomasks are broken when there are duplicate Q items in OSM.

It looks to me that here too a multi-polygon is improperly built from multiple OSM objects. In case of this geomask example it looks that geometry from one OSM object is used for outer mask area, and identical geometry from another OSM objects gets treated as an inner area, without a cap between the two

I'm curious: why the entire .mw-indicators block or at least the individual #mw-indicator-<id> element wasn't wrapped inside .mw-parser-output? I've found it useful to target #mw-indicator-<id> in CSS as it allows me to adjust e.g. vertical alignment of an individual indicator without affecting alignment of other indicators inside the block, and it'd be nice to do so via TemplateStyles as well.

Pikne added a comment to T313844: Geoline/Geoshape queries don't return geojson for QID.

Is there any reason why a circle in OSM can't be retrieved as a line, but only as shape?

As mentioned, T288400 has the hints. This behaviour is affected by patches referenced in this other task. Since last year geoline objects are queried from new database table which includes objects that are built from only relations. Geoshape objects are queried from different database table(s).

Pikne added a comment to T313844: Geoline/Geoshape queries don't return geojson for QID.

... the OSM relationship attribute in Wikidata is being used for Kartographer

It isn't and it's easy to find examples where geoshape/geoline object can be retrieved without Wikidata property, e.g. see item Q3743006 and its geoshape (from way/26900845). As far as I can recall, Wikidata ids were perceived to be more stable than OSM ids, for both ways and relations, and this is why geoshape/geoline queries don't rely on OSM ids.

Pikne added a comment to T305609: Add Skolt sami (sms) language support to maps tiles and Kartographer.

All languages codes used in OSM are already supported. For example, Skolt Sami "Njauddâm" (node 2940283513) is displayed here: https://maps.wikimedia.org/?lang=sms#15/69.6658/29.1106. "Uccjokk" isn't displayed because names are rendered on labels nodes, not on boundaries. So you'd have to look for label nodes such as 60070999 when adding translations.

Pikne added a comment to T304984: OSMdb sync lag at 1 week?.

I've been wondering more generally about about the status of database updates. Some objects that I tagged nearly 4 months ago in OSM, such as this one, are still not available via geoshapes. Is the reimport that was initiated in January (T299049) still underway? Or are some servers or some other components such as geoshapes yet to catch up after this reimport?

I think this task can be closed. TheDJ's patch fixed the main issue outlined in task description. If necessary then separate tasks can be created for cases where previews have always been broken or as a trade-off are a bit more broken now. There's also T203863.

Pikne added a comment to T305312: Some countries cannot be filled by mapframe.

It appears that for these countries multiple OSM relations carry the same Wikidata ID, based on which data gets combined after data import, and area from smaller relation then gets treated as an inner area (hole). For instance, in case of Germany the other relation is of type=land_area. Someone removed wikidata tag from Germany's land_area relation on March 22nd, but apparently it isn't reflected in our database yet. In case of Norway one relation is for area with dependencies and another one without these, both of type=boundary.

Pikne added a comment to T155927: Commons .map doesn't support ExternalData such as WikiData ids, SPARQL query, or another .map.

Was it intended in the first place to support "data":{"type":"ExternalData"}? This seems to be undocumented on help page. Shouldn't <maplink/mapframe> and other data reusers just query OSM data and other map data pages directly?

... '"Bad geojson - unknown type ExternalData" or 'Cannot GET /geoshape'

Do you still get either of these? Is it just slow or you still don't retrieve the data? For example, if the largest GeoJSON request in your last example (link) doesn't work then what result/error exactly you get? I've been checking examples from above over the past week and for me they work.

I think we can close this task. Some examples above at some point after March 2nd's rollback didn't work for me either, but it seems this solved itself and in past days there haven't been problems with given examples. If certain object is persistently unavailable (see T218097) or if something like T268927 reoccurs then probably new ticket should be opened.

Current situation isn't quite the same as the one I outlined in task description. At least some geoshapes can be requested now, e.g. this currently works for me: https://maps.wikimedia.org/geoline?getgeojson=1&ids=Q19686. But yes, at the moment the service works quite unreliably. GeoJSON request in task description worked for me around the time of yesterday's reversion, but now it returns HTTP 404.

Pikne added a comment to T301513: Display coordinate uncertainty on maps.

I don't quite get what you mean by uncertainty or zone of uncertainty. If one sets precision, say, "to an arcminute", then this is to simply omit seconds and its fractional part from display as these are not necessarily meaningful for large object/area, not that coordinates are uncertain.
