I'm very pleased to announce a project that Sahaj Khandelwal (cc'ed) and I
have been working on for the last two months ago: Wikidata Walkabout, a new
site that lets you browse and drill down through different "classes" of
data on Wikidata. You can find it here:
It's certainly not the only navigation interface for Wikidata, but what
makes Wikidata Walkabout unique, I think, is its simplicity: you don't need
to know any Q or P values (these are mostly hidden from the interface), or
really anything about Wikidata's structure; you just need to click on
different values to find whatever interests you.
Wikidata Walkabout runs on an open-source application, Anvesha, which was
created by me and Sahaj (mostly Sahaj). You can see the current code here:
And you can read more about the site and the thinking behind it here:
There are various improvements that could be made - the biggest probably
being that the site and application are currently both hardcoded in English
- but hopefully this is already a useful tool, for researchers or the
We look forward to any feedback.
