Wouldn't it be more scalable to have a "country" parameter ?--Zolo (talk) 07:16, 27 October 2011 (UTC)


This template has some strange interaction with image counter (Contents: Top · 0-9 · A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z) ) in category (IE/Firefox), no problem in Chrome...

  • The following 200 files are in this category, out of 1,354 total. (Chrome)
  • The following 55 files are in this category, out of 55 total. (IE/Firefox).-- 11:05, 5 September 2012 (UTC)

protocol-relative URLs[edit]

Hi! The links to toolserver and Google Maps should be protocol-relative, that is "//toolserver.org/..." instead of "http://toolserver.org/...". Greetings --Stefan Knauf (talk) 20:12, 20 January 2013 (UTC)


Is there any way this could work with the Google Maps app on Android? Thanks, Urbourbo (talk) 10:06, 15 February 2014 (UTC)

Or the Wikipedia app or Commons app or any other way that's not terribly difficult on the phone? Jim.henderson (talk) 02:39, 18 February 2014 (UTC)

“Export all coordinates as GeoRSS”[edit]

When I click at “Export all coordinates as GeoRSS” I get a message “This RSS feed has either been deleted or you may no longer have access.” Is this a general behaviour or special in my case? (Up to now I'm not familiar with RSS feeds.) --Hasenläufer (talk) 14:08, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Different icons at OSM view?[edit]

Recently I extended the template documentation to illustrate the meanings of the 3 different icons shown at Google Maps and Bing Maps. OSM only uses pins for the 3 different location types. Is it possible to let the OSM view show these different symbols too? --Hasenläufer (talk) 14:14, 9 January 2016 (UTC)

Doesn't work in articles[edit]

The template is mainly used on categories. It is stated "This creates links to maps on categories and articles", but I couldn't detect, it works on articles (sample: Rustam Bagh). --Hasenläufer (talk) 18:56, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

It works, but there have to be coordinates. Cf User:Thgoiter/Test. --тнояsтеn 06:53, 25 January 2016 (UTC)
Understood. Thanks for the hint! --Hasenläufer (talk) 09:36, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

Bing doesn't work anymore[edit]

It has already been removed as an option from this template on the English language Wikipedia. I'd remove it myself but this template is a bit complicated. --Vera (talk) 15:06, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

Removed: [1]. --тнояsтеn 19:13, 27 September 2017 (UTC)
It is working now (tool), you can add it using the tool back here. --Dvorapa (talk) 09:57, 25 February 2019 (UTC)

Strange behaviour on OSM map[edit]

Clicking on Map of all coordinates from OSM takes me to an OSM map with all its blue markers. But hovering or clicking on a blue marker just highlights me the file name in the left column. Clicking then on a file name in the left column just opens me a new tab (in Firefox) with the same map (and URL). So: how am I able to watch the (not correctly linked) files? --Yeerge (talk) 15:36, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Behaviour is known by tool developer (discussion in German: de:WD:GEO#Kategorie-Filter für Commons on OSM ?) but no solution yet. --тнояsтеn 20:25, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Google Maps[edit]

It does not seem to work Face-sad.svg --Discasto talk 13:40, 22 July 2018 (UTC)

Problem with Tool (https://tools.wmflabs.org/wp-world/googlmaps-proxy.php) is known: User talk:Mike Peel#Wikidata Infobox and Google Maps. --тнояsтеn 19:37, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

"Don't disturb Wikipedia. Thanks."[edit]

Now can I read this, like here: [2] > [3]. Why? -- Bwag (talk) 11:08, 17 April 2019 (UTC)

Vgl. Commons:Forum#Ist man jetzt irre geworden? --тнояsтеn 18:04, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Aha, da bin ich nicht der einzige, dem es die Haar aufstellt - thx! -- Bwag (talk) 18:49, 17 April 2019 (UTC)
Scheint jetzt zu gehen, dafür haben wir jetzt aber das Problem dass level nicht mehr geht ?! -- Gerd Fahrenhorst (talk) 18:26, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

level does not work correct[edit]

Why is "|level=" not working correctly? See e.g. Category:Aerial photographs of Landkreis Bautzen (top right). I miss the coordinates from the subcategories. Some weeks ago it was working. In Category:Aerial_photographs_of_Görlitz e. g., only the first 4 coordinates are listed, not the coordinates of File:18-09-29-Görlitz-RalfR-DJI 0414.jpg e.g. --PaulT (talk) 18:25, 1 May 2019 (UTC)

Sorry, but I reduced the number of levels to 1. To be honest: I did not expect that somebody really uses it. The reason is that my tool was deaktivated be the admins because it uses too many ressources.
But this has nothing to do with the fact, that only 4 coordinates are shown. This is really strange. Perhaps a bug in "kmlexport" which is used by my program? --Plenz (talk) 19:03, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
It seems that even at level=1, no subcategories are displayed, e.g. Category:Calenberger Neustadt (Hannover). I think I already added about 200 GeoGroup calls to categories. Is there a chance to limit not the number of levels but the number of entries (e.g. max. 50 pins)? -- Gerd Fahrenhorst (talk) 19:36, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
