ANN: Finally! DBpedia and Wikipedia switched to Topic Maps!, according to Lars Heuer.
See his post for the details but if you are capable of installing plugins in a FireFox browser, you can use his DBpedia / Wikipedia -> Topic Maps service within your browser to create topic maps.
The bar for creating topic maps just keeps getting lower!
A few minutes later….
Caveat: I am already running FireFox 3.6.6 so your experience may vary, but….this rocks!
Installation of GreaseMonkey and the Mappify browser plugins was very slick (only GreaseMonkey required a restart) and then a quick jaunt to Wikipedia and the first article I pulled up, “rough sets” (that is *sets*), has “Mappify” next to the title and it presents a drop down menu of XTM, CTM and JTM, in that order. Pick one and it offers you the file.
It doesn’t get any slicker than this! Kudos to Lars Heuer!
