Wikimaps Atlas website goes live
After some deliberation on wether to have a wordpress blog, we decided to stick with pushing all our code and documentation to one place for easier management and simplicity - Github Pages. For those not aware, Github can host and serve a static website using the jekyll static blog engine.
Introducing the Wikimaps Atlas project
Something useful that one finds in almost any Wikipedia article of a geographical feature is a reference locator map that accompanies the text (Ever wondered where Timbuktu was?). The value of these static maps over the ubquituous Google type slippy maps that we see on the web today is that of context. Fixed scale reference maps like those on Wikipedia have been painfully handcrafted by a silent group of volunteer digital cartographers who put in significant amount of manual effort to create and upload each file or revision.
