Mapping Wikipedia

Mapping Wikipedia

Mapping Wikipedia visualises all the geo-located articles for a number of languages. This mapping highlights geo-linguistic contours and uneven geographies: regions that are densely populated with contested edits, and virtual deserts with sparse article coverage.

The work offers an intriguing mirror of cultural and sociological difference, and a vast aggregate of shared human effort.

The project was developed in collaboration with Mark Graham and Bernie Hogan at the Oxford Internet Institute, and uses the dataset they created for their project focusing on Wikipedia in the Middle East and North Africa.
