Local Wikipedia search??

I'm looking for a way to search for Wikipedia entries by locality or by gps coordinates, like the iPhone WikiMe application does except on the web. Any suggestions? Thanks!!

maps.google.com. type in your local address. At the top of the map is a "more..." button. Check the wikipedia box.

Yup, seconded. And note that you can drive Google Maps with lat and long (I leave that as an exercise for the reader).
