Wikimapia
« on: 26 January 2016, 17:02:25 »
The Wikimapia website provides a Google Maps API-based interactive web map that consists of user-generated information layered on top of Google Maps satellite imagery and various other resources. The navigation interface provides scroll and zoom functionality similar to that of Google Maps.

According to this Wikipedia article, Wikimapia is privately owned, and unrelated to Wikipedia, but it has registered volunteers who add data.
