The later is now done - every singe Wikipedia article which publishes
coordinates (and that includes, cities, neighbourhoods, transport
stations, hotels, hospitals, mountains, museums, etc. etc.) using a
template (and there are many thousands) now includes Geo ;-)

Templates which use titles in the coordinate template will be attended
to shortly.

I'm indebted to Wikipedia user "Quarl" for working with me on the

Examples (showing a variety of formats and uses):




In a related project, I and others are working to add coordinates to all
the articles, about places, which don't yet have them.
