Hi, I foward this mail to design, since it seems relevant here.
As far as I know, currently there is no other way to create (world)maps
than taking some existing blank one, and put the color on regions of
interest. Maybe it would be intersting to have such a tool online, but
more important, to ease contributors ability to make interactive maps,
which enable readers to see how a phenomenon evolved/is evolving through
What do you think ?

Perhaps of interest to many Wikimedians: the Endangered Languages
recently launched a new layout, making it easier to find and submit
information on languages that are in the "catalog of endangered
that they are building. Worth a look.
Thank you for the link.
It seems to be the result of a realy huge work! Do you know if their
solution to create interactive map is free software? I would love to
such a tool within wikimedia. To my mind, it would be really useful
geographic and historical articles. Having a tool that would enable
"watch events propagation through time and localisation on a map"
awesome, and it seems to me that their software is almost all that.
I don't know anything about this project beyond what's on the site --
just ran across it. From what I can tell the user-submitted language
is CC-by but unfortunately they seem to be using Google Maps for the
Wikimedia-l mailing list
