THE FULL WIKI MARRIES WIKIPEDIA AND GOOGLE MAPS.

Mon 11 Jan 10

Our new site, The Full Wiki has brought together Google Maps and Wikipedia. Now you can view any article on Wikipedia with all the locations mentioned on a Google Map.




You can see at a glance where most of the activity in the Renaissance happened, namely Europe and primarily in Italy. Where are the world's tornados? Or volcanos? Heat waves? Nuclear power plants?

The map and the article are linked throughout. Click on a map marker and it jumps to that part of the article. Click on an article marker and it will show you that location on the map.

See for example our tourism fact map. If we click on Bangkok (Q), for example, we can see the relevant part of the article and learn that it's the third most visited city in the world. Or zooming into Europe and clicking on Nice, Wikipedia tells us it was one of the first and best established resorts in the French Riveria.

Some more examples:

  • See what happened all around the world in 1945.
  • See where the drug trade is carried out.
  • Barack Obama has the most international background of any recent US president. See it mapped.

I can't believe my eyes! That's such a useful combination, now lessons of geography will become much easier, because now I will have a possibility to read scientifical facts and see where all the subjects are located at the same time. Peter Rossy
