Wikidata training 2017
Wikidata Belgium 2017 is a training on Wikidata organized by Wikimedia Belgium.
Wikidata is a project of the Wikimedia Foundation: a free, collaborative, multilingual, secondary database, collecting structured data to provide support for Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons, the other Wikimedia projects, and well beyond that. Wikidata contains public data which serves a variety of applications. Primarily, Wikidata is the linked structured database for Wikipedia and its sister projects. However, due to the open license and its APIs, use cases extent to a variety of applications. We plan to organise a series of Wikidata tutorials, to showcase its application. By example participants are guided through (1) adding data - either manually or by batch loading, and (2) querying the content through Wikidata's SPARQL endpoint (http://query.wikidata.org), (3) analysing Wikidata content with analysis and visualisation platforms such as R.
