  • Free. The data in Wikidata is published under the Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication 1.0, allowing the reuse of the data in many different scenarios. You can copy, modify, distribute and perform the data, even for commercial purposes, without asking for permission.
  • Collaborative. Data is entered and maintained by Wikidata editors, who decide on the rules of content creation and management. Automated bots also enter data into Wikidata.
  • 多文。凡纂、用、覽、複用皆爲多文。以一文錄之,可立得于他文。各文皆可以錄數,亦可嘉耳。
  • 輔數據庫。維基數據所錄非唯數而已,其源及所係于他庫皆爲載。其蕃與實可見矣。
  • 集數之有章。數之章已明,則其之複用于各維基策及他處均易,而計算機亦可識而算之也。
  • Support for Wikimedia wikis. Wikidata assists Wikipedia with more easily maintainable information boxes and links to other languages, thus reducing editing workload while improving quality. Updates in one language are made available to all other languages.
  • 天下之人。人皆能經應用程序端,多方以令維基數據爲己所用。






維基數據庫由及其與數別號而成。各項皆有標,形若Q加以一數,如Douglas Adams (Q42)者。

記各項之徵,有一與一。標以P加一數,如educated at (P69)者。

For a person, you can add a property to specify where they were educated, by specifying a value for a school. For buildings, you can assign geographic coordinates properties by specifying longitude and latitude values. Properties can also link to external databases. A property that links an item to an external database, such as an authority control database used by libraries and archives, is called an identifier. Special Sitelinks connect an item to corresponding content on client wikis, such as Wikipedia, Wikibooks or Wikiquote.

All this information can be displayed in any language, even if the data originated in a different language. When accessing these values, client wikis will show the most up-to-date data.

Douglas Adams educated at St John's College
