We have made an initial evaluation and assessment of the interviews and discussions that we conducted during September and October. Results show that there is a need and we have grouped these into four themes. It has been both fun and educational to meet so many wonderful people in the movement.
The needs are about more resources, training at different levels, know-how and hands-on. So there are many new ways to work further on. We will continue with more interviews and even deepen these if necessary. If you want to be involved and contribute with suggestions how to improve the work with content partnership, you are welcome to contact tore.danielssonwikimedia.se
Cultural heritage on Wikidata – thousands of monuments in Norway
An attempt to match the items against already existing Wikidata items was made, to add the ID to them. It was however hard to get the correct items, as the articles for many of the monuments were about wider concepts. E.g. a piece of rock art linking to a village where it is located.
Items with the Kulturminne ID property, including the newly created ones, can be viewed in this query.
Structured Data uploads continue
We have set up a page in the hub portal with a summary of our data uploads, including the work with SDC and Wiki Loves Monuments. There you can find an overview of the countries we have worked with. We are now up to a dozen countries, with Norway and Tunisia as the most recent additions.
Tools and data – WMSE at the WikidataCon 2021
We had a great opportunity to talk about different aspects of the hub initiative at WikidataCon 2021.
