In this 90-120 minutes workshop you will learn how to make both flat, clustered, layered, embedded, interactive, on-Wiki and off-Wiki maps from sets of geo-referenced (P625) items in Wikidata.
Map of public libraries in the province of North-Holland, The Netherlands. Work in progress, 7-6-2019
You will do this in 3 modules of approx. 30-40 minutes each:
Module 1: You will start by making various basic flat and clustered maps in Wikidata using SPARQL queries. Next you will make some layered maps (https://bit.ly/3368DPk), where groups of items can be toggled on/off in the map.
Module 2: After having explored maps in the Wikidata query interface, you are now ready to learn how to embed Wikidata-driven maps in other Wikimedia projects, such as Wikipedia and Commons (examples). In addition to SPARQL we will look at OpenStreetMap, GeoJSON and the Mediawiki Kartographer extension.
Module 3: Finally you will learn the steps for creating interactive, layered Wikidata-driven maps that can be used off-Wiki, ie. in regular HTML pages. In addtition to the above tools & techniques, we will use some basic Python, Jupyter Notebooks (PAWS), Jupyter-Leaflet and Jupyter-widgets.
