Great news, Jaroen! It's great to see that Mapping becomes more of the generic solution.

I have a few suggestions though:

Similar suggestions for the Semantic Maps:
I'm not sure if moving Semantic Maps as a whole into SRF is necessarily a good idea as it adds some functionality to Semantic Forms and therefore has it as prerequisite - it might be reasonable to move map display code to SRF, but then it's not clear if having forms code separately in another extension is viable.

Thank you,

Hey all,

First of all, let me introduce myself.
I'm Jeroen De Dauw, one of the GSoC students for Wikimedia foundation this year. I'm working on a map extension for Semantic MediaWiki with Yaron Koren as mentor.

During the last 2 months I've been working on this extension (which has actually split into 2 seperate extensions: Maps and Semantic Maps - click the links for more info about either extension), and I'm reaching the final stage before the first release. I'd like to get some feedback on the code and overall structure of the extensions before I continue, to ensure no mayor design flaws are present.

You can get the code for both extensions here. Note that this code is still purely dev material, and should NOT be used in a production environment.

One of the big questions about the Semantic Maps code is if it should just be added to Semantic Result Formats or remain separate. What are your opinions about this?

Any feedback is welcome. For those who are wondering, if no mayor flaws are found, both extensions will probably be released in a one or two week time frame. (I'm posting updates on my blog.)
