Need some help getting started? Here are some pages you can familiarize yourself with:

  • Introduction – An introduction to the project.
  • Wikidata tours – Interactive tutorials to show you how Wikidata works.
  • Community portal – The portal for community members.
  • User options – including the 'Babel' extension, to set your language preferences.
  • Contents – The main help page for editing and using the site.
  • Project chat – Discussions about the project.
  • Tools – A collection of user-developed tools to allow for easier completion of some tasks.

Please remember to sign your messages on talk pages by typing four tildes (~~~~); this will automatically insert your username and the date.

If you have any questions, please ask me on my talk page. If you want to try out editing, you can use the sandbox to try. Once again, welcome, and I hope you quickly feel comfortable here, and become an active editor for Wikidata.

Scientists who were born or died in Berlin[edit]

@Ijon: Why does this pick "Theologians"? I went up the occupation tree and removed a couple of what appeared to be problematic classifications - this and this but evidently that is not the solution.

SELECT DISTINCT ?item ?itemLabel ?itemDescription ?dob ?dod 
  ?item wdt:P106/wdt:P279*  wd:Q901 .		# scientist/subclass of scientist 
	{ ?item wdt:P19 wd:Q64 }			# place of birth = Berlin (Q64)
		UNION	{ ?item wdt:P20 wd:Q64 }	# place of death = Berlin (Q64)
	OPTIONAL { ?item wdt:P569 ?dob  }
  	OPTIONAL { ?item wdt:P570 ?dod  }
  SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "en" }

Try it!

Protected areas in India[edit]

This was not showing Rollapadu Wildlife Sanctuary - hoping it is an indexing delay - let's try this query again soon.

SELECT ?itemLabel ?itemDescription ?coord WHERE {
  ?item (wdt:P31/wdt:P279*) wd:Q473972.
  ?item wdt:P17 wd:Q668.
  ?item wdt:P625 ?coord.
  OPTIONAL { ?item wdt:P18 ?image. }
  SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "[AUTO_LANGUAGE],en". }

Try it!

Bangalore inscriptions[edit]

SELECT ?itemLabel ?itemDescription ?image ?coord WHERE {
  ?item (wdt:P31/wdt:P279*) wd:Q4989906.
  ?item wdt:P17 wd:Q668.
  OPTIONAL {?item wdt:P625 ?coord.}
  OPTIONAL { ?item wdt:P18 ?image. }
  SERVICE wikibase:label { bd:serviceParam wikibase:language "[AUTO_LANGUAGE],en". }
