Description arun 2007-03-30 20:39:31 UTC
With some wonderful code, wikipedia now churns out clickable location maps of 
countries which add a new degree of interactability to the wiki ex: http:// . But the process of 
marking each point using coordinates is tiring and cumbersome especially if 
something like a clickable road map is to be made.
It would be very useful if one could reference the coordinates from an article 
like geo:London would return the geographical coordinates of London and mark it 
on the map. This can really unleash the power of location maps.

Marking as WONTFIX: Semantic MediaWiki implements this kind of stuff, and enabling it on WMF wikis is another bug.
