    Tag a location

    WikiMapia allows any contributor to add a "tag" (placemark) to any location by marking out a polygon around the location and then providing a default language, title, description and one or more categories.An optional note can be provided, as well as images and embedded YouTube videos, which all appear on the place's information window. Multiple categories can be added to any placemark by clicking the add categorylink and either selecting from a list of common categories, or by typing in the...


    Users also can add up to seven pictures to each tag by selecting Add/Manage Photosfrom the placetag's menu. This opens a dialog box, allowing the user to upload a photo from their computer or the internet.

If a place is described in multiple languages, the user can navigate to other language pages by clicking on the link at the bottom of the window. Currently a total of 101 languages are supported, and 100% of the interface has been translated into 56 languages. Most of the languages (except Chinese) use ISO 639-1 naming conventions. Registered users can help translate the Wik...

  5. Jan 13, 2015 · Yes. No. Alexey Tkachenko. September 29, 2020. The info on the buildings, places, is very rich, some of it can't be found on google maps, 2gis and alike, so wikimapia is extremely valuable. But the big problem is that search is unavailable in this app, and street names aren't displayed also. 23 people found this review helpful.
