According to template:coord google maps etc ignores geodata except that tagged with display=title (and I've found this to be the case too) - I didn't know that redirects "don't work" either - I've tried a kludge - ie see Magna Park, Wavendon, Milton Keynes..
As far as I know it's Google's decision whether they use the tags - they may well be purposely ignoring redirects, and short articles. I am going to see if the kludge above turns up on google maps etc..
I think further discussion needs to happen at template:coord which is where the experts are. I'd like to be able to get some inline coord links to be used by external sites too... Please see Template talk:Coord#Display in Google Maps/Earth etc - redirects for more..Mddkpp (talk) 18:03, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
- For the record if there isn't a solution I really don't object to the separate article being recreated (I've seen worse) - the article has scope for growth, and probably techically passes notability tests - there's a lot of press coverage in the specialised press, plus 'milton keynes council' stuff and gazeley's (the developer) own releases are solid sources eg   Some of the stuff comes close to advertorial but I'm not here to judge..  Even found this daily telegraph which is 67% about the development, plus coverage in foeign and unrelated press   . (But I don't want to write it :) )Mddkpp (talk) 18:22, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
