Apps, tools and scripts to work with Wikidata items from OpenStreetMap

Distance Visualizer

new3

Use the distance visualizer to visualize the distance between the OpenStreetMap feature with the Wikidata tag, and the corresponsing coordinate on the Wikidata database. Larger markers indicate a larger distance between the matched features.

Interpreting large match distances

A large match distance between the mapped feature and WIkidata location could be due to one of the following cases:

Valid

  • Large natural features like oceans or continents that do not have a definied point location can be 1000kms apart. Example
  • Large administrative area features like countries, states and provinces hat do not have a definied point location can be 100kms apart. Example

Inappropriately tagged on OpenStreetMap

  • A Wikidata tag was added to multiple OSM features that describe a single object like ways of a river instead of the river relation. Example

Incorrect Wikidata tag on OpenStreetMap

  • An incorrect Wikidata tag of a similiarly named feature has been added to OSM. Example

Incorrect location on Wikidata

  • The Wikidata entry of the feature has an incorrect location. Example
