Knowledge Graph Card in Google Maps
Google Maps for desktop added a "quick facts" card that uses information from the Knowledge Graph. If you search for a country, a state, a city, a district, a museum or any other important building, you'll find some information from Wikipedia.
Google Maps cards include a lot of useful information, depending on the context: events, transit information, hotel booking.
