Description:
Many Wikipedia entries have a physical presence in the real world. This is an effort to document these locations and help reference the unique wiki content online.
Expanded Description:
Wikipedia has become one of the fastest growing online resources of information. However, sometimes it would be nice to discover some of the Wikipedia entries based on your location. This is an effort to create an area for those who know of unique content on Wikipedia and give it a location online for others to discover.
Instructions for Posting a Wikipedia Entries Waymark:
For a new Wikipedia entry in this category, you need to find a unique topic within Wikipedia that matches a location you can mark with a GPS unit. We're not talking about air or water, but articles like the Seattle Space Needle.

Any submission without a Long Description, will be declined. If you get your information from a specific source, please cite your reference.

UPDATE: March 14, 2009

The following amendments to the submission requirements go into effect immediately. Those waymarks which have already been approved and are contrary to the new requirements will keep their approved status and be considered "grandfathered" into the category.

1. People - All persons, living or dead, shall not be waymarked. A grave, a memorial, a bust, a statue or anything else to the contrary, whatever, shall not constitute the referenced person and therefore shall not constitute a waymark. A bust, statue, memorial or grave of a specific person must be referred to specifically as a unique Wikipedia entry. The Benjamin Franklin grave is an example of a Wikipedia waymark which could be created but a Wikipedia entry for Benjamin Franklin would be a violation of this rule and subject to denial.

2. Singularity and Uniqueness - No objects generalized or of a general nature shall be waymarked. All objects have to be designated as unique by a Wikipedia entry. A violation of this rule would be submitting "school" without reference to a specific school and therefore would be contrary to this rule and be subject to denial. All submissions must be unique, singular and identifiable by name, number, code or any other symbol thereby making an object unique and special.

UPDATE: December 16, 2011

3. Plagiarism - Any sources used, referenced, reviewed or otherwise utilized in the creation of a Wikipedia waymark shall be cited in the Long Description. A citation gives credit to another person, source or site by listing that person, source or site by name and including all other relevant information one would expect to find in a citation. Any information, reference material, quotations, ideas, or anything else used from another cite or source must be referenced. Any submission that does not adhere to this policy will be considered to be plagiarized and will be denied. If you take information word-for-word from any source and include it in your Long Description, it MUST be in quotations and the Source of the copied text MUST be referenced at the end of the quotation. There shall be no exception to this rule.

UPDATE: June 5, 2009

The following amendment will go into effect immediately with the same terms and conditions as above amendment.

4. Photos - All waymarks must have at least one unique photo which clearly identifies the object or place being waymarked. Two exceptions included in this amendment are: A) A single picture of a sign or building identifying a town, city, district, university, locale or any other place being waymarked is not sufficient (in this case multiple pictures are required to give one a flavor of the area) or B) the waymark has sufficient security restrictions placed around it as to prevent a person from taking a reasonable picture under normal conditions. Reviewers make the final judgment call when a picture is in question and are the sole determiners in accepting or rejecting a submitted waymark, lest there be a vote.

Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
To post a visit log to this waymark you need to visit and write about the actual physical location. Any pictures you take at the location would be great, as well.
