GibraltarpediA is the first Wikipedia project to not only embrace a whole city, but also aspires to bridge two continents. The project aims to cover every single notable place, person, artefact, plant and animals in Gibraltar in as many languages as possible. This is a large WikiProject; it’s at least three times the size of MonmouthpediA. The area of interest includes the British Overseas Territory of Gibraltar, the Strait of Gibraltar, the Spanish municipalities along the coast of the Bay of Gibraltar, the northernmost coast of Morocco and Ceuta.
GibraltarpediA uses QRpedia codes, a type of bar code a smartphone can read through its camera (using one of the many free QR readers available) that takes you to a Wikipedia article in your language. QR codes are extremely useful, as physical signs have no way of displaying the same amount of information and in a potentially huge number of languages.
Articles have coordinates (geotags) to allow a virtual tour of the town using Wikipedia’s mobile apps (or the Wikipedia layer on Google Streetview) and are available in augmented reality software including Layar. GibraltarpediA does not use standard black and white QR codes, in order to differentiate between our codes and other schemes and individual’s codes.
