From Isaac Johnson (GroupLens)
... we would like the final version of all of the deleted Wikipedia articles from the last three years.
- Determine which of the deleted articles are spatial. That is, determine how to geotag (i.e. provide coordinates) for articles that were deleted before coordinates were assigned but could have very easily been tied to a latitude-longitude pair. As a side note, hopefully whatever method is developed for this would have broader use. Jake mentioned that it might be used to assist in expanding the project of crowdsourcing photos for geotagged articles.
- Analyze the distribution of deleted articles to understand if there is any pattern where certain areas are seeing higher rates of deleted articles than others. This could provide insight into how the definition/application of notability varies spatially.
