A: Google Maps has introduced a reverse-geocoding feature, which gives priority to the closest object in their database, instead of the desired coordinates. The closest object is shown with a bright red marker with the map centered on it, and the requested coordinates are given a green marker that often blends into the background or is outside the displayed area. It might be called the "you must have meant this" feature. Our use of the Google Maps KML generator for Google Earth links is also affected. That's not something that can be fixed here.
A: A user script is available, but easiest is to use WikiMiniAtlas. Click on the to the left of the coordinate link will open a frame with a map of the surrounding location populated with Wikipedia articles.

The incoming links shows that many pages also link to "Wikipedia:Map sources", so that may be an even better target than "GeoTemplate"; I'm neutral on this matter. eπi (talk | contribs) 21:16, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
Technical oppose This is an exceptional page, as it's so closely integrated with the WMF tools. We shouldn't move it unless you can prove, or get a statement from a technical expert, that moving the page wouldn't cause any problems. I'm neutral on the core issue.

I'll hopefully see about looking into this. That's a very clear reason to postpone moving until further consultation. eπi (talk | contribs) 06:30, 5 May 2019 (UTC)
Valid point indeed. This is the second requested move I've created, and the second one I've withdrawn. Hopefully this will help me further refine my approach so I don't find myself withdrawing my third. eπi (talk | contribs) 17:34, 5 May 2019 (UTC)

Some links in the "Other information" section need to be updated as they switched from http to https: www.megalithic.co.uk , geody.com , global.mapit.mysociety.org , map.openseamap.org , www.lightningmaps.org — Preceding unsigned comment added by ElfQrin (talk • contribs) 12:54, 21 August 2019 (UTC)
