The Welsh town of Monmouth is having QR codes - mobile barcodes - added to landmarks and other points of interest. It’s a project called Monmouthpedia, which is described as the first Wikipedia project to cover a whole town. The QR codes will link to articles on notable places, people, artefacts, flora and fauna in a wide variety of languages including Welsh. These QR codes are expected to be placed on plaques as well as notices and stickers.
Articles will be geotagged to allow a virtual tour of the town and will also be available in augmented reality software.
As with the wider Wikipedia project, anyone can contribute to articles on Monmouthpedia.
