Querying Wikidata with SPARQL
Name(s) and/or username(s)
- Asaf Bartov, Asaf (WMF)
- Senior program officer, Wikimedia Foundation
- Capacity development:
- Wikidata, particularly integration into local wikis.
Type of submission (Please choose one)
- Workshop (work in groups)
What are the largest cities in the world with a woman mayor? Who won national book awards in more than one country? What famous people were born in Cape Town? What is the leading cause of death among chemists? Who were some contemporaries of Michelangelo in Rome and in Florence?
The workshop would assume basic familiarity with Wikidata's structure -- items, properties, and values -- and walk attendees from absolute beginner level at querying Wikidata using SPARQL to using external tools and Google Spreadsheets. No prior knowledge of SPARQL necessary!
Attendees will add Wikidata queries to their toolbelt.
