Hey folks,

The maps and aticle image have been good additions to the multimedia capabilities in Wikipedia in the last decade, widely used on my home wiki. For now, in Wikipedia the maps are also rendered as images and become interactive only when clicked on. This makes them potential candidates for being displayed as article images in article without a photo.

I would like to find out how complicated it would technically be to make the article image extension also capable of using map images? I know this is probably nowhere on the roadmap, I'm only interested in the technical part of the idea.
