Internet Explorer 11 and up: toggles on click interactivity in pure SVG?[edit]

@DTankersley (WMF): Is it possible, when working with pure SVG (no Javascript et cetera), to have a user, on Internet Explorer 11 and up (without any further browser plug-ins) click on one part of an SVG, and to thus toggle the visibility of another part of the SVG? If so, could you please create a MWE that demonstrate the possibility?

Existence[edit]

Does this team really exist yet? There is one mention in wmf:Staff and contractors in one person's title, but no link to this page (which is nearly orphan). Nemo 09:43, 20 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

It has existed for roughly a year. Early on, it was 2 members of Wikimedia Discovery working on maps. The team is still often referred to as the "Maps" team, which is probably part of the confusion. Discovery's teams are relatively fluid, with teams being created or disbanded as needed. Several Discovery staff split their time between 2 teams, and people shift between teams at times. --KSmith (WMF) (talk) 22:07, 22 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
If so, it's about time this page is made more discoverable. Incoming links are generally considered the first step. Nemo 09:51, 26 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Scope[edit]

Clarifying the scope will help drop obscure phrases like "interactive tools"

I find the usage of "interactive" quite weird, since the whole Wikimedia/MediaWiki thing is interactive by definition (web 2.0 and whatnot). I'm not proposing to change the name but I would welcome a clear definition of the scope of this work. For instance, is your expected work/interest a subset of phabricator:T56213? Does "interactive" stand for "interactive multimedia content", in short "interactive content" or "interactive media"? (w:Interactive media is quite poor, by the way; if you have interest in this topic, you may want to improve the definitions and references there.) --Nemo 09:53, 20 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Tabular and geographic data[edit]

On Wikimedia Engineering/2016-17 Q2 Goals I read a goal of «Commons is able to store new formats for tabular and geographic data». I'll note that there largely is consensus for enabling ODP and ODS on Commons (ODP, in particular, has no detractors at all, IIRC). phabricator:T4089#64056 and phabricator:T45151#433107 have summaries of the current state of things.

The thing has been clarified later in the pages Help:Tabular Data and Help:Map Data. Both came out rather or completely unexpected, due to confusing terminology and total lack of advance description of what was going to be worked on. I wonder if anyone but the proposer had actually understood what the Q2 goal was about. Nemo 09:42, 1 February 2017 (UTC)[reply]
