VeniVidiWiki -- Wiki Map Travel Guide


VeniVidiWiki: travel guide

VeniVidiWiki.eu is a Google map wiki mashup for attractions around the world. Anyone can add a POI (point of interest) to the map and provide as much as possible of the following information:
  • Name of place/poi
  • Category - those shown above are listed as POI with Video -- so they all have a video link; the full list of categories is listed on the left
  • Description
  • Website, and
  • Photo and/or Video links
The wiki has a large number of sites, and crashed a few times when I was trying to view a lot of them. But in general it is quick and easy to navigate, and worth exploring to learn more about attractions in a place you may want to visit.

Quite an interesting application. I wonder if it's a good idea to add affordable travel deals to some of these locations so those interested in traveling can plan out their trip.
