A large fraction of Wikipedia's millions of articles include geographic references. This makes Wikipedia a potentially rich source for themed, curated geographic datasets. But the free form nature of Wikipedia's markup language presents some technical challenges. I'll walk through the Wikipedia API, show how to get to the various places where spatial info might be found, and show some blind alleys I've followed. Examples are from a project that uses Wikipedia to enhance a map-based iOS app of some US National Park Service data.
