Fourth in a series

Wikihood interfaces with Wikipedia, offering a strange virtual tour of Orange County's faces and places. The user may need to fiddle and figure out the best path.

Wikihood is a modification, emphasizing listed locations with higher resolution photos provided by Wikipedia. For example, a search for “Tustin, California” lead me to extensive information - some map locations for the Santa Ana Zoo, Pacific Coast High School, the Tustin Metrolink Station, baseball players Mark Grace and Shawn Green, and much more.

Is this overload of information relevant? Could be, someday. Regardless, it's a good tool for very local info.
Price: Free!
Wikihood Plus, the advanced version: $6.99
