Map of Wikipedia Articles

The Wikipedia Map of…

Processing...just a sec...

Many Wikipedia articles are tagged with geo coordinates and hence are ripe for some good old fashioned GIS fun. Enter the city of your choice and explore it in a whole new way. The circles below represent the city's Wikipedia articles. The larger the circle, the higher the popularity/ relevance (as determined by article length and number of links to the article). Hover over a circle for the name of the article, click on it for a preview. Want to know even more? Clicking the preview pop-up will take you to the full Wikipedia article. This is made possible by the good folks at GeoNames for providing the Wikipedia feed free of cost. As this is a free service only 500 results are return. This is more than enough for most of the world but many of your nations' capital's results may not extend very far from their center. If you enjoy this tool please consider making a contribution to either Wikipedia or GeoNames! Thanks to Chris McDowall for the inspiration for this build.
