Hi Zihje.

the colloboration between OSM and WP is bidirectional

Is as you guessed  by wikipedia=my article (including namespace 
variants) and of course this can be extracted and visualised e.g. 

On WP the most articles are geotagged so it's quite easy to present it 
on top of what ever GIS component like the service you mentioned. So 
this is completely independend from our tagging in OSM.

hope this was helpful
