I was nosing around for information on Kopachi Village so I could set it up for a STALKER game, and I came across a Wikimapia site of the Chernobyl region. Here's the link.


It's an amazing site – every geographic feature you could want has been carefully labeled. Not all of them are in English, some have additional pictures, but man – the amount of detail available there is incredible. Every building in Pripyat is named, Yanov Station is there, Jupiter Factory, swamps, SAM sites, every structure at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant. Plenty of stuff that was never covered in any of the computer games, too – villages, farms, all sorts of cool stuff.

Reality, of course, does not map exactly with what is in the games (Kopachi Village, for instance, was bulldozed and buried), but it's close enough.
