    WikiMapia is a commercial, privately owned, online map and satellite imaging resource that combines Google Maps with a wiki system, allowing users to add information, in the form of a note, to any location on Earth. Inspired by the success of Google Maps and Wikipedia, two Russian Internet entrepreneurs Alexandre Koriakine and Evgeniy Saveliev launched the website on May 24; 2006.Its aim is to "describe the whole world". It now has over 11,742,000 places marked. Although registration is not required to edit or add to WikiMapia, over 650,500 users from around the world currently are registered. All content uploaded by users is currently made available for non-commercial use through WikiMapia API; however since WikiMapia is privately owned, all contributions along with future royalties and many usage rights are forfeited to WikiMapia and its successors
