Hi I'm Ambrosia10. I tend to work on New Zealand or biodiversity content including women in science and New Zealand endemic species.
Query page can be found here.
Work currently being undertaken
I'm working on the biodiversity knowledge graph, in particular although not exclusively on collectors of scientific specimens and authors of scientific papers.
I'm also working through the Biodiversity Heritage Library dataset in Mix'n'Match to assist with the linking of metadata within that digital library and Wikidata. Adding images to Wikicommons and linking them to Wikidata via their creators - with an emphasis on women scientific illustrators. See this for NZ women artists. I should also work on making sure the women in this https://babel.hathitrust.org/cgi/pt?id=mdp.39015011940858 publication are in Wikidata.
I'm working on NZ species items expanding and updating new taxonomic treatments. I'm currently adding Te Papa holotype images to Wikicommons and reusing in Wikidata, Wikipedia, and iNaturalist.
I would also like to work on this dataset see https://nztcs.org.nz/ but I need to appropriately model this first! Then run it by others.
I'm also working on New Zealand paintings for the Sum of All paintings project. At the moment I'm concentrating on the Sarjeant Gallery. I've got all their paintings into Wikidata and am now working on depicts statements via TABular tool.
Finally I'm working on the Alexander Turnbull datasets currently in Mix'n'match.
I've been working on NZ cemeteries with other Wikidata editors.
Projects to do
- New Zealand cemeteries See this query.
- Women scientific illustrators in my BHL spreadsheet. Go into items they've worked on, make sure the work in Wikidata, add them to the work data and the work data to their item. Document workflow so Michelle can also work on this. Draft currently problem with libraries, see this and this, with cataloguing and description issues, show how Wikidata/WikiCommons and Wikipedia can be the solution. This presentation from 26min sets up the issue. Look at it through the lens of women illustartors.

Queries to work on
- https://w.wiki/gvY - Year of taxon publication (P574) is inconsistent with the date of birth or death of the taxon author (P405) This data needs sorting out! But see this discussion!. See this example of posthumous property.
- Add species missing Wikipedia articles here.
- "Main subject" property in scholarly article - if in title use reference "based on heuristic" (P887) then inferred from title (Q69652283 If based on abstract use inferred from abstract Q75484171.
- "Main subject" property - tool that helps automate this process for inferred from title examples.

See this as a model for BHL handwritten field books, particularly those that are in the Smithsonian Field Book Project. For scientific papers don't forget how important the "Main subject" property is - see for example this query
See Wikidata Property P6605 Plant Illustrations artist ID for when putting BHL illustrators into Wikidata.
See this for BHL women illustrators
See this document as it gives a great summary of workflows for the ingestion of bibliographic data into Wikidata.
Slide that may help replicate Wikidata Wales images project
Also check out "Wikidata:Projects" as they have very useful documentation!
Remember to write, record and DOCUMENT if you decide to self create a project!
Don't forget "on focus list of wikimedia project" and then "American Women's History Initiative"
