Every article in Wikivoyage uses Wikidata - not only in Infoboxes. Complexity and quality of data and missing constraints can cause problems. This is a report about our experiences.
We use it intensively (up to 350 accesses per article) and we have much experience with that. So I would like to give a session about it and report about experiences/problems/wishes, focused on
- Data quality in Wikidata
- Complexity of data and what problems it causes when using it in the wiki
- Lack of constraints in Wikidata which causes many problems.
If I can make it to Singapore, I'll be available at the Wikivoyage desk at EXPO most time.
Everyone can participate in this sessionHow will you deliver this session? –
In-person, live: The speaker or speakers will all be onsite in SingaporeHow does your session relate to the event themes: Diversity, Collaboration, Future? –
Wikidata is essentail in future collaboration between the seister projects and especially between the different language versions. By taking information from wikidata we can share our information easily. So in a special way Wikimedians can edit some of our information at the same time in all langauge versions.
I started Wikivoyage with some other guys in 2006 and was chairman of the Wikivoyage association for some years. In 2012 the assosciationhanded the project over to the Wikimedia foundation. I often work on modules and created modules an templates which uses Wikidata on our project.
