Structuring Wikimedia to Reach Global Communities

In recent years, Wikimedia projects have adopted Structured Data more widely (and globally) thanks to Wikidata. The two best-known cases so far are structured infoboxes used in some Wikipedias languages and Structured Data on Commons (SDC), which has used Wikidata properties to describe, link, and expand the information on media files, as well as make the files from the platform more connected.

More recently, different teams at the Wikimedia Foundation have understood the importance of linked data and are working to make Wikimedia projects more connected to each other, primarily through Wikidata and SDC.

To discuss the importance of linking knowledge globally and widely, this session intends to talk about and showcase some features (in different stages of development) that are working towards this goal and direction: structured image citations on Wikipedia, references on SDC, image suggestions on Wikipedia, and Commons' Media Search.

To illustrate some of these initiatives, the session will also feature the presence of the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) presenting the structured image citations on Wikipedia and one (or more) of the #1pic1article organizers, a campaign that tested image suggestions on Wikipedia, based on SD, with Wikimedia communities in LATAM, on Wikipedia in Spanish.
