Welcome to the world’s first Wikipedia Town
Over the weekend, the small Welsh town of Monmouth became the very first town in the world to be a “Wikipedia Town”. Visitors to “Monmouthpedia” will be presented with QR bar codes to scan, all over the town, which will take them to the town’s Wikipedia page.
Scanning the QR codes strategically placed all over town will enable visitors to learn more about the town in locations such as landmarks, and learn about artifacts, statues and other interesting historical information about the town. Red Orbit says the Monmouthpedia page was created by citizens of the town, universities, businesses and volunteers, which documents the town’s entire existence digitally on Wikipedia.
Below is an infographic from the Monmouth Wikipedia page, which lists some interesting facts about the project and town. To learn even more about this project, please read the Monmouthpedia press-website.
