Terra Incognita

Terra Incognita

Terra Incognita visualizes how Wikipedia has evolved over the last decade, mapping the geographic articles for 50 languages. The maps highlight cultural biases, unexpected areas of focus, the overlaps between languages, and regions that are unique to a language.
This project was supported by funding from The Arts Council of England
