Exploring Wikipedia with Google Maps

Mapping Wikipedia is a project from TraceMedia and the Oxford Internet Institute.

Using Google Maps Mapping Wikipedia allows you to map the geography of all geotagged Wikipedia articles in a number of different languages. It can also create maps based on the word count of articles, the date created, number of authors, and number of images.

If you are interested about how the map was created TraceMedia has provided an outline of the tools used in building the application.
