Wikipedia Load

November 5, 2006

With the newest load we have added French to the languages for which geonames supports wikipedia fulltext search and text blurbs. These features are now available in English, German, French, Spanish and Polish.
The total number of entries since July has increased from 230,000 to 500,000, an increase of 117%. The number of entries in English has increased from 53,000 to 81,000 (52%) and the number of entries in German from 38,000 to 51,000 (26%). Other languages are catching up. Dutch, French and Italian also have around 50,000 geolocated entries.
