Mapitol Site launched

by Carlos Zamith on Sep.09, 2009, under Mapitol Project

Mapitol Site is being launched today at

Still in beta version, not yet with the tens of millions of subjects intended.

What is completed and enabled:

  • Areas mostly developed are Astronomy and Philosophy;
  • Several other subjects are in development, namely History, Physics and Country Index;
  • Users can submit changes to the Index tree structure and the web page listings on each subject;
  • 4.2 million Folders, 391,000 unique subjects, 1.3 million links, 910,000 expressions (many millions searchable combinations).

Features that soon will be enabled:

  • Social networks associated with each subject: User sign up to facilitate folder and link management and a forum and chat section for each subject;
  • Development of every major subject.

In the medium-term we intend that every subject with related web pages will be properly categorized in the Index tree structure with corresponding best web page listings. This full development will depend on the evolution of the project as well as in the success of finding the right funding for it (investor contacts are welcome).

We hope that from now on, although in beta version, Mapitol can be a very useful tool for many users to find relevant information in Internet in a structured and organized way.

Feedback is most valuable to us to improve our services and our web site. Please leave your comments, suggestions and queries in our forum (http:/

    Hello Mapitol Team,

    Very fine work you achieved. There is a lot more to do but I believe you are creating something very useful. You’ve got to facilitate editing. I’m a ‘weekend astronomer’ and there are many things I would like to add or improve. Hope you are working on that. Everything else looks great.
