This is much needed to improve our items about mountain (Q8502) or hiking trail (Q2143825), for example. The property is a basic one in many ontologies dealing with them. Note that for the moment we have almost no item on individual maps, even those from the most popular series. Thierry Caro (talk) 10:50, 1 May 2018 (UTC)

    • Images of maps are covered through relief location map (P1944), for instance. This is about map editions and refers to the works of established editors, unlike the maps available on Commons. Thierry Caro (talk) 10:42, 3 May 2018 (UTC)
