ListingGeoData Script The goal of this script is to add latitude and longitude information to all listings tags on Wikitravel. This script will perform the following functions:

  1. Parse articles looking for Do, Buy, Eat, Drink, and Sleep listings tags.
  2. If the lat/long fields are empty but address is not, lookup the address against several lat long lookup services (google maps API, yahoo maps API)
  3. If lat/long is found, place resulting data into the corresponding fields in the listing and save. Ibkevin 13:26, 18 September 2007 (EDT)
I would definitely support this. Jpatokal 23:44, 18 September 2007 (EDT)
