Invalid wiki tags to French Wikipedia

Hi, I found many incorrect wikipedia/wikidata tags to French wiki. They point to "disambiguation pages". Also, lets discuss the guidelines for wiki tags (see below). Thanks!


My original post to

TLDR: researching ways to validate wikipedia and wikidata tags, wrote a
script to cross-check OSM and Wikidata, found many incorrect disambig
references, would love to start community discussion on best guidelines
going forward.

I have been analyzing the quality of OSM's wikipedia and wikidata tags by
cross-checking data using both OSM tags and Wikidata.  My first goal is to
fix "disambiguation" references - when OSM object links to the Wikipedia
disambiguation page, instead of the real location page. I have already
fixed about 200 objects, but there are about 800+ relations left, and I
could really use some help.  I don't think its possible to add them to
MapRoulette just yet.

While fixing wd/wp tagging issues, I have been putting together a list of
open questions on how we want to improve wikipedia and wikidata tags in
general, and create some guidelines. Lets discuss them in the talk page? … _questions

Lastly, if you have any suggestions on different ways to validate data
using the mixture of Wikidata and OSM, let me know.  At the moment I have a
list of all types of OSM objects' wikidata IDs, and mark the bad ones with
a value. If OSM's wikidata's "instance of" of one of the bad types, my
script puts those OSM objects it into a separate list that I can analyze.
The list of types is here - sort by the second column: …
Feel free to modify the second value of any row to indicate that those
objects should be fixed.
