    Wikipedia is widely known encyclopedia in the web updated by volunteers around the world. Mobile and location-based wiki with NFC, however, brings forward the idea of using Near Field Communication tags as an enabler for seeking information content from wiki. In this paper we shortly address how NFC infrastructure can be created in a city for the use of location-based wiki. The users of the system can read local information from the Wikipedia system and also update the location-based content. We present an implementation of such a system. Finally, we evaluate the restrictions of the technological system, and delineate further work.
