Hello everyone! I hope all is well :-)
Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons (SDC) will become available this
year. With SDC, Wikimedians can add data from Wikidata directly to files
on Wikimedia Commons.
Benefits include multilinguality of Commons files (users can find and
describe files on Commons in many languages), and machine-readable data
with better APIs, that offer more advanced possibilities to build
applications like Monumental - https://tools.wmflabs.org/monumental/
In the not so far future, you will also be able to organize Wiki
Loves... (Monuments, Earth, Africa, Art, Love, ...) campaigns on
Wikimedia Commons with structured data. (This is entirely optional, but
maybe some of you are already keen to do this, especially if you already
have monument or other data in Wikidata!)
In the course of 2019, the SDC development team wants to improve
Wikimedia Commons' UploadWizard to support the campaigns that want to be
powered by Structured Data 'new style'.
Do you have ideas and wishes for this? The team wants to hear which
structured data features you want to see in UploadWizard, and we are now
organizing a consultation about this over the next two weeks.
This page gives more context, and links to where you can leave feedback.
We're collecting this first round of input until April 17.
Many thanks in advance!
