PINTOMAP scans selected information sources for geographic references and displays links to these references on a map interface with help of the Google Map technology. Navigating this map, PINTOMAP users can easily find relevant information on a specific location or region.
Amongst others PINTOMAP links every article from the English and German Wikipedia that includes a geographical coordinate.
The current version has imported the Wikipedia-database from October 2006.
One of the next steps will be to just examine Recentchanges, making it possible to check for new coordinates without causing too much traffic in shorter time intervals.
