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://
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_Institutes_of_Management . 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.
