地図プロジェクトの目標はあらゆるウィキメディアのプロジェクトのための地図作図技術を、その広範な用途に十分なスケールで構築することです。 フィードバックやアイデアを書き込んで将来の開発への道筋を手助けしてください。 地図機能を利用するための支援が必要な場合はKartographer拡張機能のヘルプページを参照してください。

Welcome to the Discovery Maps Team


  • At its core, the maps project uses Kartotherian map tile service. Kartotherian makes OpenStreetMap data available as image tiles, the map on which other tools can draw useful information. See #Production maps cluster.
  • Geoshapes service, part of Kartotherian, makes OpenStreetMap shapes data, such as countries, cities outlines, or even building outlines available directly to the clients via Wikidata IDs.
  • Kartographer extension allows editors to insert an interactive map and add article specific data into wiki pages. See the section on the Kartographer extension.
  • GeoData extension allows articles to specify geographical coordinates, and expose them via search API.


The Kartographer拡張機能を使うと編集者はウィキのページに地図を挿入したり、形状やPOI(興味ある地点)といった記事固有のデータを追加することができます。

Kartographerには地図を簡単に追加するためのビジュアルなエディタも付いています。 Kartographer拡張希望はウィキボヤージュやいくつかのウィキペディア言語で有効化されてきました。


  • The Wikipedia Android app shows all nearby articles on a map using the Maps service.
  • The Wikidata query service uses maps to visualize query results.
  • Geohack, used by Wikipedia to provide links to various mapping services, uses the map tile service for the Russian and Italian Wikipedias. English, and other wiki's are planned for the future.

製品版の地図群(Wikitechも参照)はWMF Discoveryチームが開発しています。その実装には様々なコンポーネントが含まれています:

  • Kartotherian Github (primary) / Diffusion (mirror) - a server capable of providing map tiles in vector (pbf) or raster (png) formats, as well as static map snapshots of any size for a given location.
  • Tilerator Github (primary) / Diffusion (mirror) – a distributed backend tile generation service with a job queue.
  • A flexible sources system to set up the needed storage and processing pipeline

A version of the tile server is now in operation at
