The NearbyPages extension provides location based articles via Special:Nearby special page. It was previously part of Extension:MobileFrontend but decoupled and rewritten with Vue.js. The extension can also be deployed as a static web app that is demoed as a standalone app for Wikipedia and Wikidata.
The page Special:Nearby lists articles that are geotagged nearest to the user's current location, as provided by their browser. Due to the limit of the geosearch API, only articles within a 10 km radius are listed by default, although this can be changed using the $wgMaxGeoSearchRadius and $wgNearbyRange variables.
It is also possible to manually specify a location by including its latitude and longitude as URL parameters. For example, this URL will generate a list of articles near the w:Statue of Liberty in New York City, US:
