These KPI don't seem very interesting. KPIs I'd be interested in:

  1. amount of Wikimedia articles which didn't embed maps and now do;
  2. total accesses ("pageviews") and interactions for embedded maps;
  3. estimated number of hours saved by editors who formerly needed to create maps manually, additional edits they performed elsewhere;
  4. number of mistakes/deficiencies reported and fixed in OSM by Wikimedia users (cf. Strava);
  5. increase in number of people who know about OpenStreetMap thanks to maps on Wikimedia pages.

Thanks @Nemo bis: very valid points. I renumbered them for referencing: #1 and #2 are doable, especially once users are able to add maps to the articles directly with the <map> tag. #3 is applicable more to the Wikipedia community rather than WikiVoyage (once we launch maps full scale production), but I don't know how we can possibly estimate that. #4 would require us to access OSM server logs to track who came there from Wikimedia, or to track outbound clicks. Doable but questionable, unless we also provide an easy way for users to report such issues. Btw, this is a moot point until OSM is done (phab:T110262). And #5 is great to know, but again, not sure how to measure. --Yurik (talk) 01:14, 15 December 2015 (UTC)Reply
Can we start with the easy things then? :) As for the others, it's still useful IMHO adopt an indicator saying "this is a useful metric for our goals but we didn't figure out how to calculate it" as long you are left with something else you are able to monitor. Nemo 12:24, 1 January 2016 (UTC)Reply
