There are some cases, like Q76656102 where Wikimapia is one of the few websites to cover something in any level of detail with an identifier. I, therefore, propose this again. –MJLTalk 22:02, 27 November 2019 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support Wikimapia can be a corroborating source for coordinates and other information. Abductive (talk) 09:07, 28 November 2019 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support per Abductive. Useful presentation and crowd-annotation of sites in the locality of our item of interest; and convenient additional corroboration of its location and nature. The incoming match to us may be useful for some people too. Jheald (talk) 17:47, 1 December 2019 (UTC)
  • @MJL: I tried to create this property but an automatic check failed: example value "10443805/Miramar" does not match regular expression [0-9]{1,8}\/?.{1,194}. Please fix your proposal and your property will be created shortly. This is an automated message but do not hesitate to ping me if you need any help. − Pintoch (talk) 10:25, 5 December 2019 (UTC)
@Pintoch: I don't know how to fix it. Regex101 says the example is fine. :/
Can you help? –MJLTalk 14:10, 5 December 2019 (UTC)
@MJL: indeed, my script was just confused by the {{Regex101}} template, now it is happy. However it would be good to add a description - could you add that in the template? − Pintoch (talk) 14:51, 5 December 2019 (UTC)
@Pintoch: ✓ Done I'm still ironing out a few (or a lot of) bugs, though. –MJLTalk 15:10, 5 December 2019 (UTC)
