In Italian Wikipedia,
we are in contact with the National Library of Florence, and are
establishing links between
Wikipedia articles and the New national Thesaurus.
In the Italian WP, we will have a sentence like
The bot on Wikidata is running right now,
the bot in Wikipedia will run in the weekend.

> A new major botgenerating effort is now under way on sv:wp. All lakes
> (30000, all down to ones of pondsizes with no name) is now produced based
> on lake data from Swedish metereology institute and all lake environment
> data from a newly set up authority demanded by EU, in order to register and
> track all data of lakes in all Europe.
> The articles are generated by AWB and with some manual effort to take care
> of text in existing articles and a major effort taking care of all with the
> same name (Little lake, Black lake etc)
> http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/**Bunn <http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bunn>
> Also on maps from Google or Bing you can localize all lakes if you do not
> know the name (and for the ones missing name)
> As you can see the text is substantial around 5000 characters and even
> thing like fisharts in the lakes are generated from databases.
> We are now starting to contemplate to put these type of basedata in
> Wikidata (we are experimenting with this for some adm units), and to
> generate the articles from that as a base instead of from database
> extracted from the authorities and put on personal PCs
> We have excellent relations with involved authorities that are really
> happy with the result, and we are now being approached by other authorites
> who wants to follow and get their data from theirs databases used to
> generate qualified Wp articles (like all runestones, all archaeological
> excavations sites, all artworks placed on official grounds etc)
> Are there any other effort like this going on, especially if any one come
> further in establish links from authorities databased to wikidata?
