After the foundation have been laid, how could we build upon is the next question. We expect that one day we could combine all kinds of geo-data together. By the Open Data Day, we could reach out to people who usually a consumer and enabling them the ability to become also a producer, generating more data in the process, discovering more possibility in the data.

In this event, we will share our experience of the cooperation we have with Shin Leh Yuan Art Space and Water Resource Agency as an example to show how Wikidata can, with its unique property, solve this possible problem which might encounter while opening data to the public and how the community can take part to further improve the value.
