We are finding Latin names for towns, cities, geographical features, and adding these to Vicipaedia (or Vicilibri) and Wikidata. We are then linking these Wikidata entries to the map data at Open Street Map. In addition, statues on Open Street Map can be linked to a Wikidata entry, either for the statue itself, or if that is lacking, to an entry for the person.
We want attested place names, and we would like you to help. These can be from any Latin source, be that Roman, medieval, neo-Latin or ecclesiastical. Names that are fictional, your own invention or otherwise unattestable will be removed and could also lead to your account being limited or removed at Wikimedia or Open Street Map.
Vicipaedia have a good guide to what they regard as acceptable sources and Latin renderings. Please respect this policy (Latin, English). With individuals, their policy is to use Latin first names where one in common use (eg, Stephanus, Geraldus) but to leave second names as they are, unless the person used or had a Latin cognomen.
Maptiler say they update their multilingual dataset monthly, so please do not expect instant gratification! Remember also that your improvements are contributing to better reusable data at Wikidata and a long term mapping effort at Open Street Map, so many more attempts at Latin language mapping can be made as a result of any work you do.
If you have one or two names to add and don't want to learn how to do this yourself, feel free to contact us via the Open Latin project page.
If you want to add Latin names to this and other maps, these are the steps to follow using the example of Bewdley, or Bellus Locus, in England:
Note that it is possible to add Latin names directly to Open Street Map, but this is disliked by the OSM community, whose ethos is to add information that can be found in the vicinity. They much prefer multilingual information to be obtained through linkage to the WIkidata entry.
That's it. It's simple after a couple of attempts!
