Wikipedia is a gift to many and a bane to others. But it's hard to argue with the popularity and effectiveness of Wikipedia after the veritable death of encyclopedias.

A recent study by "The Pudding," a digital publication that uses visual essays to digest data, transformed all of that Wiki knowledge and data to present a "people map" of the country. City names are instead replaced by Wiki'ed residents -- people who were born in, lived in, or connected with particularly cities.

Here are the most Wikipedia'ed people for each of the major cities in Utah County. Some cities were excluded by The Pudding for lack of data. All information is provided by, you guessed it, Wikipedia.
