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.



Kartographe还有一个Visual Editor界面以便轻松地添加地图。 Kartographer扩展已在维基导游和一些维基百科语言版本中启用。


  • 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.
