@Naveen, yes but you have to have administrative privileges in local 
Wikiproject. First, you need to make a JavaScript page with the title 
/MediaWiki:WLMcoord.js/ copying the source code of this page 
<https://hy.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:WLMcoord.js> (there are things 
that need to be translated from Armenian... I can help you with this 

Then, you add the following script to the /MediaWiki:Common.js/ of your 

///Script allowing to add coordinates to list of monuments for WLM//
//if (mw.config.get('wgNamespaceNumber') === 0 && 
mw.config.get('wgPageName').search(/TITLEATTRIBUTE) > 0) //

"TITLEATTRIBUTE" is a phrase in the title of the articles where the tool 
should be activated (without it the script would run on any article..). 
For instance, if you replace "TITLEATTRIBUTE" with "List of heritage 
in", the tool will only work in articles where the title contains the 
phrase "List of heritage in...".

You also need to replace "hy" with your local Wikipedia language code. 
Good luck (-:

@Aubrey, I would definitely prefer OSM over Google Maps, but in most 
cases you really need satellite images to correctly identify the 
location of a monument..
