Wikipedia load

April 23, 2006

Today I have loaded Geonames with the newest Wikipedia dumps for English, German and Spanish.

Here some numbers comparing the load of today with 4 March 2006. (I didn’t have time to generate numbers for the load of 2 April 2006).

The total number of entries has increased from 155,000 to 180,000 which means an increase of 17%. The number of entries in English has increased from 40,000 to 44,000 (10%) and the number of entries in German from 28,000 to 32,000 (17%). The number of languages is still around 190.

You find detailed numbers on the geonames wikipedia page :

Numbers of previous months are backed up here :

Bye the way, the geonames webservice “findNearbyWikipedia” has recently become the service most often called per day among all our webservices. A close second is the “full text search“.
