Place #7 in Django Dash 2012.


Kirchenreich is a mashup using data from Openstreetmap and Wikipedia. The purpose of the site is to correlate informations about places of worship and show problems within the data. We want to encourage users to fix the problems in Wikipedia and Openstreetmap.

Kirche is the German word for church and reich is German for rich or realm. Of course this site not only has churches, but all places of worship.

We developed this site for the DjangoDash at one weekend. We will improve this site in the future. The whole sourcecode is on Github under BSD licence.

Feel free to fork the repository, file bugrequests or even send in feature wishes.
