Map properties Edit

Historical maps Edit

  • A page listing possible properties for maps. This page contains a proposal for properties of maps. It is based on the work done for the Template:Map in Wikimedia Commons, but accommodated to Wikidata. It also copies property proposals from all related initiatives, such as publications and artworks.

Maps on Wikidata Edit

See subpage for a listing of maps in Wikidata currently.

Map types Edit

The table lists the current Wikidata items that are subclass of (P279) map (Q4006). Help make the structure consistent! The structure can also be visualized with the Wikidata Generic Tree tool.

This list is automatically generated by ListeriaBot, a bot by Magnus Manske. Please don't edit this table manually.

For comparison, subpages /external/aat and /external/lcgft give entries from the Art & Architecture Thesaurus (Q611299) and Library of Congress Genre/Form Terms (Q47537953) respectively, listed under "Cartographic Materials" there, linked to items where they have been matched via Property:P1014 and P4953.

The entries in the tables below are sorted by (inception (P571)). Click the headers of the table to change the sort order.

This list is periodically updated by a bot. Manual changes to the list will be removed on the next update!
