The graph at the top shows how many Wikipedias have an article on the
items. You can drag the left boundary of the interval to the right to
narrow the view down to items with articles in more Wikipedias (a
first indication of relevance). There is also one item with 0

We are organizing a Wikidata Editathon in order to encourage Wikidata
edits about San Sebastián (wikidata:Q10313) and its culture. The
motivation behind the event is that San Sebastián will be European
Capital of Culture in 2016. Moreover, we are organizing this event to
encourage people in our region to edit and use Wikidata.
We will work in teams and we will edit items of different topics (e.g.
music, literature, points of interest related to San Sebastián). We will
show participants the different use cases one can go through in
Wikidata. We will also discuss application ideas and talk about
The event will take place in San Sebastián (Spain), on July 3rd, at the
