Interesting. Semantic MediaWiki currently has no map visualisations, but it=
can store and maintain the data that you would need. What would then be=20
missing is a frontend of your specific liking, which probably involves some=
principle can store and supply the information and filter it for your=20
according to various criteria.
We also will probably have a map output at some time, but such a high level=
interaction (clicking on the map to change the filter settings) is not=20
planned right now. If you go forward in this direction, it would be nice if=
you could keep us up-to-date with your developments, so that we do not=20
duplicate our efforts needlessly. for very concrete implementation plans we=
can also provide some support (use our development mailing list).
If you look for simple form-based mechanisms of creating pages, you could a=
have a look at DBPedia and the form-extension they use to add information t=
a highly structured Semantic MediaWiki installation. I think Yaron Koren al=
released this code to the public domain.
