What impress me is that we see france pretty well in nearly all the maps ... It's the only contry that is on so much maps. Is this a bug or is France the real center of the world ?

In Catalan Wikipedia all French communes have at least a bot-like page imported/translated from the French equivalent, which was created by a bot indeed: https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Utilisateur:DasBot. In some languages, those pages were first created, and then a bot came adding geolocation coordinates. All this before Wikidata.

See for instance https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint-Amancet and the corresponding https://ca.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanch_Amau%C3%A7, and in English https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint-Amancet

That article is available in 20 languages, including Cebuano (heavy bot user) and the languages showcased in Markus' new and splendid visualization tool.
