Irish Grid Reference - Authority Control

SilentSpike (talkcontribs)
JakobVoss (talkcontribs)

Thanks for asking and correction! If the properties don't link to an entity but to a place where multiple items are located, my classification is wrong indeed!

SilentSpike (talkcontribs)

No problem, I've now removed the statement.

Structured Data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

My apologies if this is a duplicate message for you, it is being sent to multiple lists which you may be signed up for.

Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 January or Thursday, 10 January 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

  1. Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
  2. Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
  3. Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:09, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

The previous message from today says captions will be released in November in the text. January is the correct month. My apologies for the potential confusion. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:43, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Structured Data on Commons Newsletter - Fall 2018 edition

MediaWiki message delivery (talkcontribs)

Welcome to the newsletter for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons! You can update your subscription to the newsletter. Do inform others who you think will want to be involved in the project!

Since the last newsletter:

Presentations / Press / Events
Partners and allies
  • The info portal on Structured Commons now includes a section on GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums).
  • We are currently planning the first GLAM pilot projects that will use structured data on Wikimedia Commons. One project has already started: the Swedish Heritage Board researches and develops a prototype tool to provide improved metadata (translations, data additions...) from Wikimedia Commons back to the source institution. Read the project brief.
  • The documentation for batch uploads of files to Wikimedia Commons will be improved in 2019, as part of preparing for Structured Data on Wikimedia Commons. To prepare, the GLAM team at the Wikimedia Foundation wants to understand better which types of documentation you already use, and how you like to learn new GLAM-Wiki skills and knowledge. Fill in a short survey to provide input!
Stay up to date!

Danke, ich habe einige Identifier ergänzt!

(L2129) is the only lexeme using catalog code (P528) and I must say the structure is a bit weird (a dictionary is not really a catalog and the lemma is definitely not a number).

I'm not sure what would be the best but I see that 379 lexemes are using described by source (P1343) for more or less the same thing.

Thank you for changing it.

We have a great quantity of lexemes and now that we have query too, I'd like to improve the quality too ;)

Hello Jakob, thanks for creating the mix'n'match-list of author-related notations in RVK to Wikidata Concepts. I am a bit confused, about RVK and whether it's really a 1:1 mapping. Many authors have in RVK at least two entries ("works", "literature about" - e.g. Kant) or three entries ("collection", "work", "lit. about" - e.g. Mortier, Erwin)

If I understand RVK, the first notation has no hierarchical aspect; Maybe we should match all RVK entries to the corresponding author and add a qualifier e.g. of (P642) to edited volume (Q1711593), work (Q386724) or secondary literature (Q18891569)? Thank you, --Mfchris84 (talk) 05:36, 11 September 2018 (UTC)

JakobVoss (talkcontribs)

RVK is a hierarchy so only the top most matching RVK classes matter. For example the RVK notation for Kant is "BF 4045 - BF 4046". Just ignore the entries below! Independent from that some famous authors occur at multiple places, e.g. Kant also has "CF 5000 - CF 5017". Apart from that just think of RVK notations as identifiers. I don't understand your question about qualifiers and see no need to use other qualifiers but mapping relation type (P4390) for mapping topics (not authors).

Mfchris84 (talkcontribs)

Form a librarians view its in the beginning a bit confusing, to think notations as external identifiers. I see you have already removed RVK claims in bibliographic items on Wikidata. Maybe it will be good to have clarification on wikidata about the usage of library classification systems. Dewey Decimal Classification (P1036) or Library of Congress Classification (P1149) are still used as classification of bibliographic items.

JakobVoss (talkcontribs)

Yes, DDC and LCC may be changed later but I did not want to start a revolution. By now we have Regensburg Classification (P1150) and Basisklassifikation (P5748) used as identifiers and the other classification properties uncontrolled. It will be easier to migrate all classification from use for bibliographic items to use for mapping each classification with Wikidata items when there will be more mappings available.

A SPARQL query gives all identifier properties with their datatype and class.

News from an old friend of vocabularies

Bvatant (talkcontribs)

Hello Jakob

After 3 years of retirement, I'm coming back to linked data land, through genealogy (long story).

I've just posted a request to be a property creator. Hope you will support this proposal :-)

Hallo, könntest du mir bitte helfen und die Seiten Q7979167 und Q10396904 zusammenführen? Wedge filter ist Šedý klín im tschechischen. Ich kenne mich hier nicht so gut aus. Danke --~~~~

JakobVoss (talkcontribs)

Ist erledigt. Kannst du noch eine Deutsche Bezeichnung ergänzen?

Nolanus (talkcontribs)

Danke! Ich kenne mich nicht so gut aus in diesem Gebiet, aber habe ich nach meinem Wissen gemacht.

Nolanus (talkcontribs)

BTW, Bezeichnung auf deutsch ist richtig? ich dachte, es sollte auf Englisch sein.
