Marble: Wikipedia links need disambiguation

Reported by: activityworkshop Owned by: live-demo@…
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: OSGeoLive Keywords: marble, wikipedia, upstream


If you click on a city in Marble and see the Wikipedia tab, it just shows the wikipedia page for the city name. If there is more than one city with that name, the wrong page can be shown.

Example: Victoria, BC, Canada - this shows the wikipedia page for "Victoria" which is just a disambig page including "Victoria (name)", "Queen Victoria" and so on. It would be much better if Marble was smart enough to go straight to the page "Victoria, British Columbia" instead.

Example2: London, Ontario, Canada - this shows the page for "London" which of course goes straight to London, UK. This should show "London, Ontario" instead.

Going to a disambiguation page is annoying enough but going to a completely wrong page is worse.

this is a bug in the Marble package, not the LiveDVD, so should be filed upstream.

there's not a heck of a lot we can do about it besides that.

I understand, but I was previously told "Ensure that you identify the project which the issue applies to, so that we can point the projects at the issues they need to solve." So I thought if I raised it here then it could be forwarded to the marble devs through the proper channels. Of course I could go through yet another registration process so that I am allowed to report marble problems at but I figured I could do it here instead.

This will be fixed through #1165. Not a Live issue.
