OpenGuides - A complete web application for managing a collaboratively-written guide to a city or town.


The OpenGuides software provides the framework for a collaboratively-written city guide. It is similar to a wiki but provides somewhat more structured data storage allowing you to annotate wiki pages with information such as category, location, and much more. It provides searching facilities including "find me everything within a certain distance of this place". Every page includes a link to a machine-readable (RDF) version of the page.


UTF8 data are currently not handled correctly throughout.

Other bugs are documented at
