Betreff: [Wikitech-l] Automatically listing public art & Wikipedia articles
near you
An: "Wikimedia developers" <>

"The hackers decided to work together to combine three/four databases:
Europeana, Wikipedia, lists of cultural institutions and a database of
public art. Together this web app produce a list of cultural heritage
institutions near a selected point (including one based on your mobile
phone's GPS location)." Works by taking your IP address or
lat/long to geolocate you.

Also, check out , new from
the Wikimedia Foundation mobile team and available for desktop and
mobile versions of the website:

"As a first pass, the mobile team has focused on using the Nearby page
to surfaces articles in close proximity that lack images, inviting users
to add one. Upon visiting those pages, the user will be prompted to
illustrate the article, which they can do quickly and easily if they’re
on a mobile device that supports taking and uploading photos."
