Democratising the Mapping Process: WIKIMAPS is Building An Open Collection of Historical Maps (link)

Perhaps the biggest challenge of today regarding geographic information is to process and organize a massive amount of data from various sources, dates and especially, formats. Big data is about processing a huge and diversified volume of information, with high velocity and high relevance – which is what Google pretty much succeeded to do so far with the internet.

How about geographical information?

A future project of  wikimap will deliver this wonderful dream.
