Infobox Geopolitical organization redirected to Infobox country

VladimirAlexiev: Why United Nations is mapped to Country? It uses "Infobox geopolitical organization".

Volha Bryl: "Infobox geopolitical organization" in Wikipedia itself is redirected to infobox country. The extraction framework uses the redirect dump of Wikipedia - otherwise lots of mappings created years ago for infoboxes that have been renamed in the meanwhile won't be found.

VladimirAlexiev: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Infobox_country has two "Syntaxes":

  • Country or territory
  • Geopolitical organization

The fields in these are different (see below). I think "Geopolitical organization" can be recognized by one of these 3 discriminator fields:

 |org_type =          !-- e.g. Trade bloc --
 |membership_type =   !-- (default "Membership") --
 |membership =        !-- Type/s and/or number/s of members --

We need to make a ConditionalMapping: We don’t want these 150 or so inernational organizations to be mapped to countries :-) VladimirAlexiev 14:16, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
