    Why "current"?[edit]

    Why only current location? All locations could be listed with start and end dates. Danrok (talk) 10:05, 25 September 2013 (UTC)

    This was intended to be used to mean the current location of an object as opposed to the discovery place, production place etc; But this property was created before qualifiers and ranks. Now that we have both of them, I think we can indeed use start date + rank = preferred for the current value (it is more efficient, and easier to retrieve than a qualifier, and sometimes we do not know the exact start date). So I'd like to propose this property for deletion through merging with no label (P766). -Zolo (talk) 17:04, 15 February 2014 (UTC)


    See also collection (P195). --Kolja21 (talk) 23:31, 28 November 2013 (UTC)

    relationship to P1134?[edit]

    What is the relationship between location (P276) and no label (P1134)? It seems like there's considerable overlap. --Delirium (talk) 13:36, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

    Probably P1134 is the next item to be merged with P276, although the property is not yet nominated. Its possible nomination is mentioned in the deletion-discussion of 'event location'. Michiel1972 (talk) 15:53, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
    I think merging is a good idea, also for the position of the property in the entity suggester. :) Sjoerd de Bruin (talk) 15:56, 10 December 2014 (UTC)

    P1134 will be merged with P276, so I will change the description (property can be used now for villages, neighborhoods, parks, etc) Michiel1972 (talk) 22:51, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

    Proposal for a different use[edit]

    Whenever an item has collection (P195) it is redundant to have the same information with p276. I´d like to have p276 to show the city or place, where the collection is located. In this way we can use both properties in infoboxes: Mona Lisa (Q12418) + p195 => Louvre (Q19675), + p276 => Paris q90. Very often it is quite unclear by the name of the museum alone to know where it is located.--Giftzwerg 88 (talk) 02:07, 19 January 2015 (UTC)

    please see located in the administrative territorial entity (P131)--Oursana (talk) 03:15, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
    I think p131 is for adminstrative purposes to show the dependencies between administrative units. But if we do agree to use p 131, then p276 should be dropped completely as it is redundant.--Giftzwerg 88 (talk) 10:36, 28 January 2015 (UTC)


    Can someone with knowledge of constraints add the constraint that the item added as value for P276 should not be an administrative entity (but not when the subject item is an [subclass of] event). Since we should use P131 instead of P276 for these cases. Michiel1972 (talk) 10:19, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

    Ivan? Multichill (talk) 12:38, 15 February 2015 (UTC)
    Current constraints set does not allow to check this case. The case is looked very specific, custom report can help maybe. — Ivan A. Krestinin (talk) 17:23, 15 February 2015 (UTC)


    no label (P1134) was deprecated and this property should be used. Not all translations have been updated yet so you might want to check your language. Multichill (talk) 12:37, 15 February 2015 (UTC)


    Is there a qualifier for 'room' when to label the location of an artwork on display? Or should we add the room as wikidata-item and use that as location? --Hannolans (talk) 18:14, 29 October 2016 (UTC)

    I think in the meantime you found out that it is handled like the least--Oursana (talk) 00:41, 12 January 2017 (UTC)
