When I did this capital comparison I searched for
o A relation that contains all capitals (didn't find)
o Then I wanted to use osmxapi - but that was down
o Then I tried to search for microformats for geolocations in Wikipedia
but there are only a few cities with microformats
o namefinder in combination with a wiki page was by far the best
I'm really happy with the result we have now.
o We realized that somebody has stolen London
o Many capitals are not in the map jet - people can improve osm
o For the namefinder sorting the result can be a challenge
I made a new page with
o not found capitals
o update button
If there is a better solution to find capitals and WGS84 points let me know.
