Scrapers really work

Friday, April 4th, 2008

I thought our test cases were a wee bit far-fetched: Who would actually look for the volumes of water in all the large lakes of the world? Well I guess I just found one. Received a mail from Mark, a university professor, telling me that the lake scraper had been very helpful for him, except that the volume figures were only present in less than a third of the lake descriptions in wikipedia. Mark wanted our suggestion… For now, the only answer I could give him was that we should all spend more time entering stuff in Wikipedia. Not sure it’s what he expected, though.
