Wikimapia (stylized as WikiMapia) is an online map and satellite imaging resource first launched by Russian entrepreneurs Alexandre Koriakine and Evgeniy Saveliev on May 24, 2006. WikiMapia is very similar in My Maps in marking places, but differs in that it is an international database. As of July 2011, there are almost 16 million places marked by a group of about 1.3 million users.
