Wikimapia For All

A while back, Bundy pointed me to Wikimapia while describing where he lived. From what I’ve seen, it’s like a lightweight version of Google Earth (not surprising since it’s Powered By Google) with some Wiki-ness thrown in. Basic features such as zooming in, out and around as well as search are available for the casual surfers. The real fun begins once you register as a user. Registering allows you to tag areas and to attach descriptions. Once reviewed and voted, your contributions become part of Wikimapia. The usual tourist locations such as KLCC and KL Tower have already been tagged but the possibilities are endless. I’ve even seen people tagging and describing their own homes.
