Wikidata:Flemish art collections, Wikidata and Linked Open Data/Visualizations and statistics

In the project Flemish art collections, Wikidata and Linked Open Data, a group of Flemish museums and art collections have published metadata of their art collections (estimated: 30,000 artworks in total) on Wikidata, and thus have made this dataset available as Linked Open Data (LOD).

Data donated to Wikidata can be visualized in many ways - often with information that the museums themselves would not have been able to provide.

The data will also be edited, improved and re-used via Wikidata. To what extent does this happen?

Visualizations of the datasetsEdit

This table collects interesting examples of visualizations of the data on Wikidata. Feel free to add more!
