@JMatazzoni (WMF) It looks like Kartographer is going to be pulled from enwiki infoboxes, as vandals have discovered that they can bypass page protections by vandalizing the information on OpenStreetMap. As OpenStreetMap is not a sister projects, admins are having to create new accounts on the service and learn how it works in order to fix these incidents. For example, on the Empire State Building map, it was changed to show the words “Jewtropolis” over Manhattan and the phrase “INSIDE JOB” over lower Manhattan. More details are shared on the Village Pump discussion.

This has been reported on Phrabricator phab:T201772. Maps were temporarily disabled from Infobox building, but that was undone after Module:Mapframe had a hack added to prevent maps with coords around Manhattan from displaying.
