Hi OSM-ers,
On Dutch Wikipedia I encountered this discussion (translated & redacted by me)
I wonder if OSM could indeed solve this error as bdijkstra suggests:
Sijtze Reurich 24 Jun 2020 17:22 (CEST):
A click on "Map" (top right) in the Dutch Wikipedia article Haava (Võru) erroneously shows the map of Haava-Tsäpsi, another village in the same municipality. The coordinates in "coor title dms" are set correctly and correspond to those in Wikidata. I tried everything to get the right map:
Whatever I do, I keep seeing the card from Haava-Tsäpsi. Yes, even with the coordinates of Havelte. My technical capabilities are now exhausted. Anyone have an idea how to get the right map?

–bdijkstra 24 Jun 2020 17:50 (CEST):
The coordinates in the two coordinate templates match with the corresponding villages on Wikidata, so it must be OpenStreetMap. I seem to recall that someone claimed that their import of Wikipedia / Wikidata data is not very frequent, on the order of 1 × per year.
Thanks in advance,

Where are you getting your "correct" coordinates? Could those be in error?

I'm not aware of any ongoing imports for WikiData (although OSM does try to crosslink) the OSM wiki page has a big "Check License" warning.

There is no yearly Wikidata import in OSM. Someone once added a lot of Wikidata tags in a more or less automated fashion.

If the Wikidata entries for Haava Küla=Q3457278 and Haava-Tsäpsi=Q3045972 got mixed up, anyone can change this at any time. But as far as I can see, they link to the correct Wikidata item.

When I click on the coordinates on the Wikipedia page you link to and then click on OSM, I see the exact same object as in Haava Küla.

When I click on the map you refer to, I see an empty map of Estonia without rivers. If you mean that the little pin on the map on the right is incorrect, then I would expect it is Wikipedia data that is incorrect.
