The heart of the project however is the ZIM format[4]. It is designed to be an efficient and universal way of storing large wikis in a single file. It can be used to compress virtually any data from a given postgreSQL database (Postgres, MySQL, SQlite or Oracle) schemeor from a collection of files. "With ZIM we are trying to introduce a standard for offline wiki applications", the project team explains. Applications on platforms such as the iPhone, webOS or Symbian are also invited to join and with the Wikimedia Foundation already preparing automatic ZIM generators for the Wikipedia, it is only a matter of time.
