Wikipedia’s global edits

Erik Zachte is at it again, with a blog post announcing his fascinating new visualization of all the global edits to Wikipedia in a single day (Valentine’s Day, a romantic choice).  It’s an incredible tool and worth a look — I just spent 30 minutes wandering around its different views, zooming in on different regions, and drinking it in.  See below for my favorite screenshot so far, which shows the locations from which all the edits to Wikipedia were made that day.

This reminds me of one of my favorite visualizations, a video with OpenStreetMap edits over a single year.
