Mapping Wikipedia

Google Maps Wikipedia
Google have started adding photos and Wikipedia entries to their maps. Currently only activated when using maps.google.com you can click the “More” button to activate icons showing points of interest. I was amazed by how many things are tagged but slightly disappointed that Edge Hill isn’t on there yet.

It will be interesting to see if this is a one off, or with any luck shows that Google are going to be making more use of microformats and tagged pages in search results.
