date depictedEdit

   Done: date depicted (P2913) (Talk and documentation)
DescriptionThe date that is represented in a painting, map or even in a literary work.
Data typePoint in time
DomainRepresentations of images and literary works: depiction (Q1166770)
ExampleAddresses and travel map of Helsinki from 1876 (Q17610148) → 1876

This property is needed to distinguish different dates that are used to describe a map. publication date (P577) tells the time of publication, inception (P571) the time of creation, but neither of them can describe what time is depicted with the map. Susannaanas (talk) 09:17, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

  •   Support. We do have depicts (P180) but that is better I think used for the subject than the date, e.g.
    ⟨ Thryduulf's map ⟩ instance of (P31)   ⟨ map (Q4006)      ⟩
    depicts (P180)   ⟨ Roman Empire (Q2277)      ⟩
    publication date (P577)   ⟨ 2 June 2016 ⟩
    depicts date search ⟨ 23756 ⟩
    . We also have set in period (P2408) but that's intended for fictional works and can be much vaguer than a specific date. Thryduulf (talk: local | en.wp | en.wikt) 10:06, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
  •   Support Seems equivalent to dct:temporal (temporal coverage), so add this as one of the names, and as "equivalent property". This is better than "subject" because it doesn't require to have all possible intervals as items, and because it allows temporal computations (eg give me all Creative Works that cover a given time interval. --Vladimir Alexiev (talk) 19:21, 7 June 2016 (UTC)
  •   Support Valuable for posthumous portraits that have an inscribed date which is not the date the painting was created. - PKM (talk) 00:57, 10 June 2016 (UTC)
  •   Support Also valuable for Commons. --Srittau (talk) 21:10, 11 June 2016 (UTC)
