Stadtbahn not showing up[edit]

The mapshape for the Stadtbahn doesn't seem to work as nothing shows up. Can somebody please fix that? Hobbitschuster (talk) 17:18, 30 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Bielefeld Stadtbahn[edit]

Swept in from the pub

After we're all done with the "Bielefeld, I thought that was a hoax" jokes, can somebody please have a look at the article and tell me why the Stadtbahn doesn't show up? Thanks! Hobbitschuster (talk) 17:36, 30 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Interesting question, but the answer is quite simple actually: the person who gave the article its name didn't include the word "Stadtbahn" in the name. You may want to consider moving the page, but I think you should get consensus first; the name you are proposing is longer than the original, so people may see that as a reason not to change it.

What? I am not entirely sure you understand my question. My question is, why the map despite the mapshape being there doesn't show a line for the Stadtbahn like the Berlin map shows the Berlin U-Bahn. Hobbitschuster (talk) 19:40, 30 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Oh, sorry. I misunderstood your question. I thought you were referring to the title of the article. Selfie City (talk) 23:04, 30 June 2018 (UTC)[reply]
I did not find a match with OSM data -- Matroc (talk) 04:22, 1 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
How would we fix that? Hobbitschuster (talk) 23:38, 1 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
You might as well look for the Narnia "L" train...ThunderingTyphoons! (talk) 12:06, 1 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Anybody? Hobbitschuster (talk) 16:03, 2 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Only thing off the top of my head is to draw the lines by getting the needed coordinates (GPS) then add them manually in mapframe using several LineString types. I am not sure if you can request it be done in OSM so that one could use wikidata and OSM? -- Matroc (talk) 17:12, 2 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
de-WP has a list of stations with coordinates. If that helps... Hobbitschuster (talk) 17:19, 2 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
The OSM data seem to exist, but there are no links to wikidata... Also Q574488 doesn't have any lines listed as 'has part'. Fixing this is definitely much easier than hand-redraw all the lines? (talk) 20:22, 2 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Allow me to expand the list. As for trams we've got: Tram 1, Tram 2, Tram 3, Tram 4, Tram 10, Tram 12, Tram 13 and Tram 18. These will all need individual Wikidata entries, which then get included in Q574488 as a 'Part of'. The OSM relation will also need a link to every associated entry for the lines on Wikidata.
Also, as a sidenote, I assume the process of linking lines using {{Mapshapes}} isn't documented (yet). Would it be worthwhile to do so, possibly at the Dynamic maps Expedition?

There is, check the documentation of {{mapshapes}} and {{mapshape}} :-) (talk) 18:50, 3 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]
That is most likely the way to go! Unfortunately not in my baliwick to muck with either -- Matroc (talk) 21:12, 2 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

If I read WP right there are only four lines as such (the single digit lines) with the double digit lines being special event service or booster service or some such. Similar to how the Nuremberg metro used to have "U21" and "U11" for a while which were just shortened runs of U1 and U2 Hobbitschuster (talk) 21:13, 3 July 2018 (UTC) Sigh. We're still no closer to them showing up on the map... Hobbitschuster (talk) 22:24, 6 August 2018 (UTC)[reply]
