After the success of Monmouth becoming the 1st Wikipedia town in the United kingdom, Gibraltar is to become the 1st Wikipedia city. GibraltapediA is aiming high. It will be the first time a whole city has been embraced in this way.
This means that there will be Wikipedia pages describing all the different tourist attraction and places of interest around the rock.
This will be fantastic for Gibraltar. Visitors to the rock will be able to use their mobile devices such as iPhones, smart phones and iPads to look up all the historical facts regarding the places they are seeing in their own native language.
QrPedia codes will be used to enable this. The QrPedia codes sense the language that your mobile devices are set to.
All landmarks and places of interest, for example St Michael’s Cave, will have a Qr code for you to scan and obtain all the relevant information regarding its history.
Absolutely amazing news for Gibraltar that is said to receive anything from 6 million to 9.5 million visitors a year.
Gibraltar is such a historical place that these Qr codes will be invaluable for visitors wanting to gain knowledge without going on an official tour. They will be able to learn so much simply by using their phone!
