That not made by the same people as the people who made wikipedia. Well it doesn't look like it is, its just a more advanced application of the Google Maps API than what I did with the Frihost User Map.
In their TOS for using the API there is a restriction on commercial activity and number of requests per day for the API. It's 50,000 or something.
its cool but i dont see a huge use for it just besides looking at some of the interesting inferormation people added.
cool idea though.
the name of the site is really like... wikipedia
Pretty crappy name "Wikimapia".. not that smart. And really, Google Maps/Earth ismuch better. I'm starting to feel sorry for Microsoft, Google and Mozilla are pwning them.
Its powered by google. It even says it at the bottam of the map. A lot nicer then google maps though for when you can't download google earth.
Who wouldn't be able to download Googleearth?
that thing is awesome.that thing is awesome.that thing is awesome.that thing is awesome.
Pretty nice, but doesnt seem like anything new.
Google shall dominate. Become their underlings and you shall be rewarded in the future...
Awesome site. I used it a couple of times, maybe not as good as Google Earth, but they are getting there.
Today most of the accesses to Maps are with a cell phone (smartphone) so unless they come with a mobile app for the most relevant platforms, they are soon out of the game. (Even more than they used to be).
