I'm looking at the possibility of using a kml layer in a 'geoserver' to provide attribute information on a point. Is there a KML file for the Wikipedia Places articles as it is used in Google earth or it is a Google 'locked' functionality?

No the official one but works - wikimapia.org/ge.kml –  Mapperz Jun 30 '11 at 16:25
@Mapperz. Thanks, will check it out. –  Erick Jul 1 '11 at 6:47
Have you looked at wikilocation.org? Doesn't return KML, but it does return XML and JSON. –  sophia Jul 24 '11 at 1:24
See this postgis dump, for database structure Both resources find through wikipedia links from article amercader.net/dev/wikipedia –  ThomasG77 May 19 '13 at 0:52
Thanks @ThomasG77, even better than what I sought! There is really no 'explicit answer' entry here (apart from the comments) but I'd consider myself answered. –  Erick May 21 '13 at 11:06
