GeoData Storage & API
After its soft launch in December, GeoData was officially announced this month. Work on improvements and bug fixing continues. The Special:Nearby page, which has been deployed to an experimental version of the site, represents the first major use of this feature on mobile projects. We hope to use it to help contributors identify articles in need of photos.
Lots of our articles have GPS coordinates but we don't have an easy from MediaWiki to retrieve it. Mobile Apps benefit greatly from rich location data.
