To summarize (some of) the results of my Wikipedian in Residence project of last year
<https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:GLAM/Expedities>, a web application was
built and launched yesterday: http://www.expeditiewikipedia.nl/
It's a geographic visualization tool for a series of historical events, linked to
Wikipedia. My WiR project was about expeditions, and this web tool puts these expeditions,
their Wikipedia articles and/or Commons images 'on the map’, as a journey.
The best examples of Wikipedia and Commons integration are in the Dutch-language
expeditions in the application.
It's a pilot, and the source code is open sourced on Github -
... feel free to download, tweak, investigate, contact me
and/or the developer if you have questions :-)
Many greetings, Sandra (User:Spinster)
