Wiki Atlas is a project that aspires to make knowledge available through interactive mediums across space. It manifests through the Wiki Atlas mapping tool and Aurama, a mobile application currently in development.
Wiki Atlas aspires to become an alternative medium to explore information and knowledge available on Wikipedia beyond existing interfaces. We imagine tourists discovering interesting historic information during their journeys or locals learning about notable facts or events that took place in the neighborhood where they live. Wiki Atlas enables a wide range of actors to discover, connect, and share knowledge across community boundaries.
As we envision knowledge discovery manifesting via interactive, mobile and immersive exploration means, we view Wiki Atlas as a tool with the potential to enhance and facilitate education and learning. As a use case, educators are able to create a collection of articles around a topic of interest (e.g. History of the Second World War) and share it with students in the context of a history and geography classes.
We are looking forward to seeing communities of users employing Wiki Atlas to navigate across space knowledge and learn with reference to geography. We also hope you will use Wiki Atlas to learn something new!
