There might be situations where the information in Structured data (SDC) and in the wikitext disagree. There are tracking categories to surface such situations.

Coordinate reconciliation[edit]

Meaning:

Why

  • In general, because one set of coordinates was updated (but not the other) since the last synchronization
  • In rare cases, the bot which copied the coordinates from wikitext to SDoC made a mistake

How to fix:

  • Replace the faulty set of coordinates
  • If the coordinates in file description are wrong they can be removed leaving empty {{Location}} template (beware that this is controversial with some users)
  • If the SDC property is removed, then it is likely to be added by the bot again based on the wikitext (which is desirable in many cases, not necessarily all) - this means one should remove the coordinates information on the "Structured data" page
