Summary

Eureka Wiki is a "living" dictionary and episode guide to the Eureka television series and all official merchandise from the franchise (games, books, DVD...). It is a "living" website, because it can be changed and amended by users. You can add pictures, information, and external links to websites in support of information contained within the Eureka Wiki.

Most of all, Eureka Wiki is a semantic wiki, certainly the first one related to the Eureka universe. Semantic data can be used everywhere in the wiki to make comparison, data grouping and much, much more. To have an idea about the usefulness of semantic data, see the Semantic MediaWiki site, which developed the software used here.

For an idea of what the Eureka Wiki can be with YOUR help, visit the Wikipedia and the Lurker's Guide to Babylon 5 for ideas and inspiration.
