Have you had a look at how many of those entries have actual  
coordinate, or even province/country entries?  I think "missing" data  
is going to be your bigger challenge.

If we had a membership sign up form that also allows users to enter  
coordinates - or click a map.  Then we could easily have it feed  
automatically into a community map.  But I'm still interested to see  
what you can come up with via mediawiki!  Unfortunately, I'm pretty  
ignorant of its capabilities on this front.
