The extension Maps enables your MediaWiki pages to visualize geographic data with dynamic, JavaScript-based mapping APIs such as Google Maps, OpenStreetMap, and OpenLayers in your wiki pages.

It has built-in support for geocoding, displaying maps, displaying markers and geospatial shapes, adding pop-ups, and more and allows extensive customization per map, or for all maps on your wiki. For more information, including installation instructions, see the documentation on GitHub.

Responsive Skins[edit]

The following needs to be added to "Mediawiki:Common.css" to made the maps show correctly in a responsive skin, e.g. the ForegroundSkin:Foreground skin:

/* fix google maps little man in responsive skin */
.gm-style img {
    max-width: none;

The reason is that maps are being written directly as a div container and unfortunately the skin's CSS is the entire site for the img attribute.
