What is this map?

Read more about this project.

When an unregistered user edits Wikipedia, he or she is identified by his or her IP address. These IP addresses are translated to users' approximate geographic location. Unregistered users only make a fraction of total edits -- only 15% of the contributions to English Wikipedia are from unregistered users. Edits by registered users do not have associated IP information, so the map actually represents only a small portion of the total edit activity on Wikipedia.

Built using d3, DataMaps,, and the Wikimedia RecentChanges IRC feed, broadcast through wikimon. Source available on github.

Built by Stephen LaPorte and Mahmoud Hashemi.
