and it is still next to nothing - we went from 1 hit a second to 6 hits a
second (528k/day). This is nowhere near even our first announcement spike
<http://searchdata.wmflabs.org/maps/> of 85 hits a second (7,270k/day),
which still was not noticeable on the server load.
Giuseppe, maps were not added to the Russian Wikipedia - just as agreed,
maps were added to yet another wmflabs tool called Geohack. Just like many
other tools, Geohack is linked from the wikis (the GPS coordinates in the
top right). This difference is fundamental from the usage/ops perspective -
the only users who load it are those who chose to click on a tool link and
go to wmflabs site, thus keeping the load very low. This is different
usage <https://en.wikivoyage.org/wiki/Salzburg#Get_around>, where the
wmflabs tool is loaded right away on a page view, without user
interaction. Btw, I don't think wikivoyage usage is safe, so I am working
on the extension <https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Kartographer> to
solve it. The extension will use maps directly from the wiki site, so we
should have a discussion in the future when we can integrate it into all
the wikipedias, and not just the smaller projects.

As part of the discussion, the GeoHack for the Russian Wikipedia was
updated to use our maps
A plausible link could be
What I am curious about is how do you get maps data to the russian
Wikipedia, given the current agreement with ops was to just allow
experimental use of maps in labs and in a few other places too:
From my initial look into it, it seems like we're serving maps to
ruwiki proxying through labs. Is that correct?
In that case, I can just say I don't think it's a good idea. Can you
please confirm how does this happen?
Also, in general, a heads-up before a service is used on live wikis
the first time is always appreciated.
