Geo-Tagging Tool for Wikipedia

GeoLocator

GeoLocator is a great tool for streamlining the process of geotagging, especially for Wikipedians. It is a Google Maps based tool that allows you to drop a map marker on any location and retrieve the latitude and longitude.

For anyone writing or wanting to geo-tag a Wikipedia article the tool automatically authors the geocoding templates for Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons multimedia content.

GeoLocator also includes a link to direct you to the chosen location on Wikimapia and comes with a permalink option so that you can grab a link to the chosen location on GeoLocator.
