I noticed that for some larger wikis, the geo_tags.sql.gz dump file
does not include any geotags found in articles. Is it possible to
determine why this is, and for which languages this is the case?
For example, the geotags dump file for Indonesian (a wiki with
400,000 articles) is only 7kb large, and all geotags in
it are from
user pages, file uploads, or file templates; but not from articles:
Yet it doesn't take much effort to find pages that are geotagged, such
as this one (see the infobox):
I realise that there are a number of alternative tagging conventions.
Does idwiki possibly use a geotagging scheme that is not supported by
some part of this ingestion/export process? Which other wikis may fall
in this category?
I tried to find the script(s) that populate the geo_tags table from
page content but so far had no luck, as I'm not sufficiently familiar
with WP's software architecture; if someone can point me in the right
direction I'd be happy to investigate myself.
