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
  • 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
  • @ThomasG77 could you please add your comment as an answer so this thread does not reappear on the unanswered questions list? Thanks! – underdark Apr 26 '14 at 22:08

You can see this postgis dump, and find also the database structure

Both resources were found through wikipedia links from article http://amercader.net/dev/wikipedia
