This page is where developments relating to Wikimedia maps will be announced and discussed after July of 2018. It takes over from the Map improvements 2018 page, which documented a project that added various upgrades in the first half of that year, and from the Wikimedia Maps/2015-2017 page, which preceded that.


Maintain the Wikimedia maps infrastructure including the Kartographer and Kartotherian services.


Bug reports and requests can be made in Phabricator. Please tag tasks with #Maps.
