PlaceOpedia

Wikipedia doesn't have maps on most articles, so http://www.placeopedia.com/ is a site where you can tag a place on the map and link it to a Wikipedia article. It doesn't find everywhere (Christchurch matches four places, none of which are in New Zealand or Sunderland) but it's an excellent way of locating places. It would be nice to cross-link with some of the photo-locating projects so you could read an article, find the place on the map and then see what it looks like.
