We were inspired by news article exposing anonymous editing of controversial wikipedia pages by conflicted interest. Notable examples include members of Congress and the NYPD.
How it works
- Query wikipedia for revision histories
- Parse the results for anonymous ip addresses
- Do geo lookups on those ip addresses
- Plot the results on our site
- Wikipedia page suggestions
- Filter by time
- Multiple pages displayed at once
- View diffs
- Group revisions by location
- On demand data downloads
- Zooming and panning
