Hi all;Since I watched the project Geograph Britain long time ago, I dreamed with a global version. I have been playing with maps (mostly Google Maps) in the past years, but now that I'm migrating my tools to Wikimedia Labs, I started to read about OpenStreetMap and Leaflet.
I have made some tests and coded a pretty alpha version of the concept. It shows circles of 500m radius for every geolocated image on Commons (there are about 4 million). Not all are shown at the same time, but only 10,000 per zoom level. So you only have to make zoom on your city or in the search box.
Some examples:So, I would like to hear your opinions and suggestions about the idea of scaling Wikimedia Commons into a project with at least 1 image per km2 globally.
The code is in GitHub and it is forked merging 2 examples of the thousands of Leaflet library examples available. Currently the code is pretty simple and you can help to improve it.Regards
