I started testing it and I think I'm missing something quite basic. If
I go to
, I don't see any "Structured data" tab which I would expect to see
based on the instructions . On the other hand, for a file such as
I do see the tab. What am I doing wrong?
Also, while I understand the basics of Wikibase and Wikidata, I'm
slightly lost as where we are with the different components of SDC
with regards to Commons and/or Wiki Loves Monuments. For example,
* are we at a place that we're ready to represent a Commons page such
via Wikibase completely? or are there components missing? If they are
missing, what are those?
* What do you mean when you say we can organize the WLM campaigns on
Commons with structured data? By "organize" are you referring to the
landing page of the campaigns? For example, should I assume that all
the info that we show in the landing page of Iran's contest at
can be represented by structured data?
On my end, both as an international WLM organizer and a local
organizer, I can say that I can benefit from a virtual online meeting
where we can have some of these types of questions answered directly.
While I appreciate the documentation, amending it with a virtual
meeting may be necessary as there are a lot of nuances both on your
end and our end, and understanding these nuances will have impact on
our feedback on features such as uploadwizard.

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 -
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
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!
