Description

Provide a method to position a node by URL-Parameters. It would be great e.g. for semi-automated import of Wikipedia-Coordinates (and many others). A Greasemonkey script could change the Wikipedia-Coordinate-Link to something like http://www.openstreetmap.org/addpoi?lat=6.33309&lon=5.62337. The link will open Potlatch with a POI added. Now the user can check, if the position of the POI is correct and then save it to the OSM-Database. --Flamed 12:24, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Not a bad idea, but I'm a bit nervous about its application to Wikipedia imports - most co-ordinates on Wikipedia are sourced from Google Maps and the like, and as such absolutely must not be imported into OSM.
