A map of events from Wikipedia, taken from pages like this and DBpedia.
Using the Wikipedia API, and mapping the event descriptions to locations using WikiMedia's Geographical Coordinates.
These are then mapped onto a globe using D3 and Topojson managed by Play! Framework, sized by events in that location and coloured by how recent the events are.
Developed by Misha Wagner, with the help of Joe Groocock. Idea from Hoagy Cunningham.
