    No idea when this occurred, but…

    About 3 miles off the coast of France at Le Harve begins a string of icons for Wikipedia articles. The icons run perfectly north/south, and from looking at their Info windows I assume they are all on the Greenwich Prime Meridian. There are thousands of them, all the little towns in Armenia, Brazil, Iran and dozens of other countries.

    Where the heck did this come from?!? It’s funny as heck. But how much of my iPad’s memory is this hogging?

    Okay, thanks for reporting this, it does look funny!  These are cases of our coordinate parser not correctly deciphering the coordinates in some Wikipedia articles, thus placing them at longitude 0. I have checked and this seems to be wasting only a few MB of space.  We will correct it in our next data update!

    Thanks again for bringing this to our attention!
