MonmouthpediA

Monmouthpedia is the first Wikipedia project to cover a whole town – specifically, the Welsh town of Monmouth . The project aims to cover every single notable place, people, artefacts, flora, fauna and other things in Monmouth in as many languages as possible, but with a special focus on Welsh.

Monmouthpedia will use QRpedia codes, a type of bar code a smartphone can read through its camera that takes you to a Wikipedia article in your language. QR codes are extremely useful, as physical signs have no way of displaying the same amount of information and in a potentially huge number of languages. This is a different scale of a wiki-project.

On top of this exciting Wikipedia event, Monmouthshire County Council intend to install free-to-use WIFI (Wireless Internet), and making this town wide, for this project, and beyond.
