Cool! Information Visualization and Search: Mapping Wikipedia
From the Trace Media Web Site:
Mapping Wikipedia is a groundbreaking visualisation of the world mapped according to articles in 7 different languages. The map displays both the global patterns and the vast number of geo-located items. The dataset was produced by the Oxford Internet Institute as part of a project that examines Wikipedia in the Middle East and North Africa.
Once the articles are mapped, hover over yellow dots to view article titles, then click to access the article and statistics about it. Of course, you can also zoom- in and zoom-out of any map.
