Hi, we would like to place Wikipedia locations on an interactive map, with
the Article associated with it. Hopefully this will create an Map centric
display of Wikipedia historical locations (rather than a text/page centric
one.). Don't worry, full credit and links will be given.
So. Is there a reliable way, using the API to gather the Co-ords of
locations (that have them)? Ideally, we would like to have a pair of queries
. Returns = Articles of a category, that ALSO have a location Co-ord
. Returns = The article, or some kind of data block with that
Co-ord, based on the articles Title
I have watched the video tutorial, and dabbled with various Queries and
Parses of pages. I can get a list of Articles that match a given Category,
and I can compile a list of Categories. However, I am finding the
geolocation data to be somewhat patchy. But that's probably down to me not
knowing the magic formula.
So, does anyone know how to address this issue? Any help most appreciated.
