WikiLocation - The Geolocation Wikipedia API

I'm happy to offer up a full REST-ful API service for developers wishing to search for Wikipedia articles by location. The data is gathered by downloading the Wikipedia database on a weekly basis and then parsing all of the geocoded entries. This data is then stored in a database where it is able to be accessed via the API. At present, there are over 3.5 million entries covering 36 different languages and this number increases every week.


Gisgraphy | Importer, geolocalisation and fulltext services for Geonames

Gisgraphy is a free and open source framework that provides fulltext search and find nearby services for places on earth (aka : toponyms) from several databases (aka : gazeteers) on the Web (mainly Geonames, but not only : ESRI for instance). It provides an importer to inject the data into a strongly typed Postgres / Postgis database and use them via 2 webservices or a java API : geolocalisation and fulltext in many format (XML, json, PHP, ruby, python, Atom, RSS / GeoRSS).
