Toronto on Wikimapia

Our friends over at Bostonist beat us to it but we’ve recently discovered the timewasting wonders of Wikimapia. The site merges Googlemaps with a wiki like interface that allows people to place description of places on the map. Toronto has over 2700 entries, and most of the major Toronto landmarks are there but with very little descriptive information. A few things are also missing, a scan of Queen West doesn’t turn up the Drake highlighted or many of the fine galleries in that neighbourhood, not even the West Side Lofts! So get on it people.
