Abstract: Abstract: Crowdsourcing platforms have become an essential part of e-collaboration arnong citizens. Wikis play an important role in this scenario because they allow content creation and shared edition of contributions. Nevertheless, none of the wikis we are aware of facilitates the geographical annotation oí content, cven when location is important metadata when talking about social development. This work focuses on the enrichment of an open source wiki far making it possible to manage the geographical metadata of contributions. Social knowledge harvesting in a medium-sized community in Ecuador was used as a case study for evaluating the proposal. The experiment took place during onc month with the participation of 63 young citizens. A total of 57 wiki pages were created and 1 1 8 editions were made. Thc antount of inforrnation retrieved by the cornmunity is greater than the volume contained in the 18 contributions found in Wikipedia. Further, the general opinion of the experiment particípants is that the resulting wiki actually supports an improved social knowledge harvesting. This last finding is supported by the statistical analysis of a survey whose design was based on tbe Technology Acceptance Model nnd on the Nielsen's ten usability heuristics. A high correlation among variables corroborates the high degree of acceptance of the proposal.
