Description:
A city wiki is a wiki used as a knowledge base and social network for a specific geographical locale. The term 'city wiki' or its foreign language equivalent (e.g. German 'Stadtwiki') is sometimes also used for wikis that cover not just a city, but a small town or an entire region. A city wiki contains information about specific instances of things, ideas, people and places. Much of this information might not be appropriate for Wikipedia (e.g., articles on every retail outlet in a town), but might be appropriate for a wiki with more localized content and viewers. A city wiki could also contain information about the following subjects, that may or may not be appropriate for a general knowledge wiki, such as:
  • Details of public establishments such as public houses, bars, accommodation or social centers.
  • Owner name, opening hours and statistics for a specific shop.
  • Statistical information about a specific road in a city.
  • Flavors of ice cream served at a local ice cream parlor.
  • A biography of a local mayor and other persons
