Gibraltar plans to be the World’s first Wikipedia City, which in layman-speak means it will have Wikipedia pages for all its tourist/visitor areas, and will plaster these physical destinations with QR codes. That will allow visitors to use their smart phones anywhere in the territory and read all about Gibraltar’s cultural heritage in their own mother tongue, using a special feature of QRpedia codes that sense the language that your phone is set to. Monmouth in UK became the first Wikipedia town earlier this year.
Smart idea (minus the QR codes), and with Wikipedia branching into a new travel section, these two efforts could possibly merge.
