This diploma thesis deals with the realization of a historical 3D-Worldatlas. An important principle of Web 2.0 is the active attendance of users as producers of contents. Wikis are a part of Web 2.0 and offer exactly this functionality for users. Graphical visualization is done by X3D. The database will be administrate by a wiki and can be extended and arranged whereas the geographical data is directly embedded in the wiki text.
Geographical and the historical structuring will be resolved by links, the basic elements of wikis. The transformation from XML to X3D take place by XSL. Because of the openness of the system and the usage from well known environments, a large expansion of the historical database is given.
