Problems with Wikipedia and Panoramio integration section[edit]

First, it should be clear that Google Earth is integrated only with English Wikipedia. 2nd, the plug for Wikipedia-World does not seem appopriate, given this project is likely not notable, and as far as I can tell, not very really functional (as in - it's not incorporated into Google Earth soft, is it?). One ref is to the said de wikipedia page, another one to a somebody's (creator?) homepage [1]. This de wiki project may be linked from external links, but I think it fails notability criteria to be mentioned in text. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 11:02, 23 July 2013 (UTC)
