Wikipedia Articles About Places Written by the West

Wikipedia’s articles about places written by the West, which shouldn’t surprise anybody. “Nearly half of all edits to articles about places on Wikipedia were made from just five countries, researchers at the University of Oxford have found. The UK, US, France, Germany and Italy are the source of 45% of the edits on ‘geocoded’ Wikipedia articles, which have a longitude and latitude associated with them to link them to a specific place in the world.”
