Hi Ali, all,

we have this dataset: https://databus.dbpedia.org/dbpedia/wikidata/instance-types/2018.10.20 and an ontology with some Wikidata links: https://databus.dbpedia.org/dbpedia/ontology/dbo-snapshots/2019.02.21T08.00.00Z

The owl version is XML.

It is true that there is no intention to make a Wikidata ontology. Nevertheless, we were wondering whether Wikidata couldn't just load DBpedia's model. We can bot import it, easily. I am sure this would help to query Wikidata.

Cleaning up the P31's and P279's is quite tedious, if done individually.

Perhaps someone can correct me if I am wrong, but I am under the impression that such a thing doesn’t exist and that Wikidata’s models are intentionally not documented as an ontology.  I gathered this understanding from Bob DuCharme’s blog post about extracting RDF models from Wikidata with SPARQL queries: http://www.bobdc.com/blog/extracting-rdf-data-models-fro/
