Join us on the 6th and 7th of August for the WikiConference India 2016 taking place in the Chandigarh Group of Colleges, Landran (Mohali), India.

Manoj K and me will be a part of the mapping party happening on 7th August, where we will introduce participants to OpenStreetMap and map the campus in full detail.

This map only shows named places in OpenStreetMap that do not yet have a Wikidata tag (Click here to view the full map)

When features in OpenStreetMap are linked to facts in Wikidata, it becomes possible to build new types of data-driven map applications using Mapbox tools. Wikidata can tell you the translated name of a city or other populated place, its population and demographics, historical dates, political figures, and much more.

What data-driven maps do you want to build? We’re looking forward to meeting with other Wikipedians at Chandigarh to share ideas and improve OpenStreetMap together!
