What is SPARQLEdit

SPARQL (pronounced "sparkle") is an RDF query language, that is, a semantic query language for databases. Wikidata provides an SPARQL endpoint including a powerful Web-GUI since September 2015. With SPARQL you can extract any kind of data, with a query composed of logical combinations of triples.

SPARQL queries can be submitted directly to the SPARQL endpoint with GET request to{SPARQL} or the endpoint's alias{SPARQL}. The result is returned as XML by default, or as JSON if either the query parameter format=json or the header Accept: application/sparql-results+json are provided.
