We’re incredibly excited to announce that
Gibraltar is to become the World’s first Wikipedia City!
Here’s Roger Bamkin talking about the launch
Using our unique language-detecting QR codes, hundreds of QRpedia codes are popping up all over Gibratar.
BBC has given us an excellent write up and we hope that this will encourage more towns and cities to use QRpedia to unlock their local history.

How I wish this announcement came in time for Hallowe’en!
The latest institution to benefit from
QRpedia is Washington D.C.’s Congressional Cemetery.
Here’s the coverage from a local news channel.
The cemetary is 205 years old and is now
the world’s largest outdoor encyclopedia of American history.
You can see
photos of some of the codes over on Wikimedia Commons, including J Edgar Hoover, John Philip Sousa and many other distinguished “residents”.
Massive thanks to
Peter Ekman for all his hard work and to the staff of the Congressional Cemetary for agreeing to take part in this project.
Come along to the
Monmouthpedia launch on 19th May
Here’s a short video about the project, showing how the signs are made.
QRpedia is proud to be one of the Smart UK Project finalists. The QRpedia team will be at Mobile World Congress in a few weeks as part of the competition. Here’s a quick video of Terence talking about what we’ll be doing out there.
