PlaceOpedia is a new wiki that appears to be working to provide exact locality information and maps for localities discussed in Wikipedia.  To date this site has set up map pages for nearly 17,000 localities.

 This might prove very useful to us even, and we might want to find a way to coordinate things from our wiki with their database of localities, so that people can find the locality in question on a current map.  The lat/long coordinates are very precise, down to six places to the right of the decimal point.  In fact, not just localities as far as towns and cities, but also maybe specific buildings (see examples on homepage) and institutions are plotted on their pages as well.
