I produce a new KMZ-File for Google Earth with 43347 coordinates
from the English Wikipedia.
The biggest problem to use the geodata from our databank is the big
number of different templates (68 !!!). In the German Wikipedia we have
only three templates (and two other) but we working on a
One-Template-System. Then we have only one template but different
outputs. This is easier to understand and I hope better to use.
Some templates we don’t use very often in the English Wikipedia.
"Templates:Coor dm NE" only in 19 articles. So we can change this and
Another big problem is the missing of the attributes "region" and
"type". With this simple attributes we can make really better
geoinformation. Only 15% of the coordinates had the attribute "type" and
9% the attribute "region". If you want see how useful this attribute
are, then try the German KMZ-File. There we have 31456 coordinates and
98% with "type" and 94% with "region".
I hope you all help to fill attributes in the existing coordinates.
Thank you for your attention.
P.S. For my Ph.D. thesis I have an On-line questionnaire to orientation
and navigation aids. Please help me and fill the form (duration: max. 5
