We encourage each and everyone of you to create a program submission. You can submit an interactive workshop or panel, a lecture, a short lighting talk or a poster for our dedicated poster session. Submissions are catered to both onsite and online (live or pre-recorded) or a hybrid combination. We at the Core Organizing Team would like to see a program submission related to mapping.
The theme for this year's Wikimania is Diversity, Collaboration, Future. Topics that strengthen collaboration on online and outreach activities and projects are topics we like to see this year. It is great way to see participants collaborate with each other. There is also a spacious Wikimania Expo space where interactive activities can happen such as a mapping party or collaborate with Wikidata/ Wikibase enthusiasts.
For participants joining virtually, we also have allocated online hours for you too to allow you to participate & present.
Session submissions for Wikimania 2023 are open until 28 March.

Do you create interactive maps with Kartographer  (mapframe)? If your
answer is yes, we would like to hear from you. Where do you run into
problems using it? Which new features would you like to see?
Please take part in our survey:
- The survey is open until March 31.
- It takes 10-15 minutes to complete.
- The survey is anonymous. You don't need to register, and we will not
store any personal data which identifies you, such as your name or IP
Unfortunately, the survey is only available in English, but we have tried
our best to use simple English and to add visual examples. If English is
not your native language, it might help to use a translation tool in your
Wikimedia Germany's Technical Wishes team  is currently working on
extension . Over the last few months, we have been working on a solution
to make this software usable on wikis where it isn’t available yet . In
the next phase of the project, we are planning to improve Kartographer
itself. More information on our work with Kartographer and the focus area
of Geoinformation can be found on our project page .
Thank you for your help!

When opening some maps full screen, in addition to the pushpin, the
map also shows a contour for the item, even though the Wikidata item
does not have any associated geo data. I'm guessing that the data
comes from OSM through their Wikidata/Wikipedia tags. Example:
https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q4684917 (check the Romanian article for
Is there a way to obtain that relation data into a Lua module? I'm
trying to determine the optimum zoom for an item and having its bbox
would help greatly.
I’d like to use the Wikimedia Maps Tiles for the Wiki Loves Monuments Italy app (see https://github.com/ferdi2005/monumenti) which is obviously strictly Wikimedia related. :)
Is there anything else I need to do other than notifying this list?
This is a follow up from our last email some months ago. You may already
have seen today's announcement from Legal about the upcoming changes to the
transitioning towards a more modern architecture. The first phase of this
transition will be replacing Tilerator  with Tegola  as our vector
tile server. This is a change in the Maps infrastructure, so there should
be little to no impact to the end users’ experience.
It is important that we are able to provide software that is sustainable to
support, before we can guarantee a reliable user experience. Wikimedia Maps
aim to provide Wikimedia users a consistent experience contributing to and
learning about geoinformation. To achieve this goal, we will empower those
engineers maintaining the Wikimedia Maps infrastructure to do so with ease
and low effort.
If you want to learn more, please head to mediawiki.org , where you will
also find a Questions & Answers section.
Thanks, and take care,
