WikiWorld (a Map of the World and Man's History, a four dimensions encyclopedia where all Wiki-files and pages are contained and attainable)
Planet Terrestrial Earth Animated.gif
summaryIt is the project of a world map (such as Google Earth) where the entire History of Man is collected.

That is a 4-dimensional place that collects Wikipedia pages, Wikicommons files, and locates them in the precise place and time etc. In addition to this, any user will be able to perform a search by typing in an hour or a day of a specified period of time, and in any place of the map the most significant historical events will be marked (on higher or lower "event notability" will perhaps be called a votation among users) with images documents exhibits etc. etc. Similarly, every famous person will be located in the place where She/He was as reported by documentary sources.

It will be a new way of seeing and presenting the encyclopedia (in a format that will no longer be linear, or shall we say "paratactic", derived from the paper model: but a three-dimensional format, modeled on reality, and able to scroll in time)

amountMuch more than money, we'll need to build a network of people, such as valid designers and expert programmers above all.

Project planEdit

ActivitiesEdit

To launch a project that needs the best programmers and the help of as many people as possible

BudgetEdit

I'm just the one who had the idea: it will have life through the work of hundreds of people and the support of the Wikimedia community in the totality of its staff, and not only them.

Community engagementEdit

SustainabilityEdit

Our project will be a platform designed to advance exponentially just as a new form of knowledge acquisition.

Measures of successEdit

It will take a long time for this project to come to life officially, but until then, the greatest success will be to gather around it as many people as possible.
