ISO 12620 ID

   Done: ISOCAT id (P2263) (Talk and documentation)
DescriptionNumeric ID from the Data Category Registry, which is a registry of linguistic terms specified by w:ISO 12620, which is a standard from w:ISO/TC 37. Each item in the registry has a PID which is a stable URI which is accessible via a RESTful interface, and it is available under a Creative Commons license. There is a web interface to the Data Category Registry as well as more information at http://www.isocat.org/index.html.

The DCR is created and maintained by scholars all over the world. It is the subject of numerous scholarly publications (http://www.isocat.org/files/publications.html). Supporting items with links to the DCR could help with integration with Wiktionary in the future. Haplology (talk) 03:04, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment As for the example: Why not 4948, 5748, or [2765 2765] for adjective (Q34698)? From my understanding, ISO 12620 is about implementing a registry for linguistic terminologies, i.e. existing vocabularies are imported to provide some kind of centralized system of reference. And isocat is one specific registry implementing that standard. Its identifiers are specific to isocat and not to ISO 12620. The listed terminilogies still exist in parallel, no attempts are made to create a combined vocabulary. Thus any concept ("class") may occurr many times in the registry. Intended usage of isocat seems not to provide direct points of refrence but rather to construct specific new sets of terminological classes for specific projects. But maybe I'm completely off the track... -- Gymel (talk) 08:27, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
@Haplology: Do you wish to comment on the above? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:51, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

Suggest to rename to "ISOCAT id", it's better known by that name. I am of two minds about it... Sharing Gymel's opinion, it's a grab bag of all sort of linguistic concepts, not particularly organized (eg compared to the OLIA NLP ontologies). But overall, I like to connect to any sort of Authority or Thesaurus... So a hesitant Symbol support vote.svg Support. --Vladimir Alexiev (talk) 14:38, 12 March 2015 (UTC)

Discussion
@Vladimir Alexiev: simply because it is often more efficient to add identifiers from mix'n'match, and it is an easy way to tell contributors that it is there. I am not sure it can have more sophisticated uses than that, but I don't see any what hard there can be in having it. -Zolo (talk) 17:23, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support would come very handy. -- Gymel (talk) 20:34, 16 October 2015 (UTC)
  • @Zolo: Please use the property documentation template when proposing a property - if you click the blue "Add a request" button near the top of the page, it will be included already. If you don't know what to put for a particular line, you can always leave the value blank and other people can help fill it in. I've added it for all three of your requests and filled out as much as I could, could you have a look and see if you can fill in any of the gaps (the description is still missing for all three, the example for Orsay Museum artist ID should be changed to point to the right item and most of the fields for Artprice ID are missing)? - Nikki (talk) 01:46, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
  • @Nikki: thanks, I know how to use this template, but filling it here is just a waste of time. It is absolutely not needed to make the proposal understandable, and it will have to be rewritten as statements once the property is created (whenever possible {{Property documentation}} on property talk pages should use data transcluded from the property itself rather than hardcoded local parameters) --Zolo (talk) 07:29, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
    • @Zolo: I disagree that it's a waste of time. It presents the information in a clearer and more consistent way which is translated where possible. It helps us to make sure properties are well defined before they're added and makes it as accessible as we can for people who speak little or no English (this is supposed to be a multilingual project). I don't see how you're helping anyone other than yourself by refusing to use it. - Nikki (talk) 13:49, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
      • Sometimes a single sentence is more clearer. It's translatable and easily understood. Imagine the waste of time trying to figure out a template filled in by a guy who adds random stuff in it, seeking input for a property he doesn't intend to use, .. --- Jura 21:46, 19 October 2015 (UTC)
@Nikki: I don't say it is better not to add the template, just that it is simpler and just as good. If I look at what you added: the datatype, which was self-evident, "source : mixandmatch", which is rather pointless, and the URL pattern, wich is indeed useful once the property is created but is rather pointless before that, and will have to be added through statements rather than wikicode. --Zolo (talk) 17:05, 24 October 2015 (UTC)

Emporis building complex ID

(I don't fill up the whole proposal, that is tiresome and obsolete: useless for discussing the proposal, and would have to be filled up again in the proper format on the entity itself, let's keep things simple)

Motivation

There are several types of ID in the Emporis database. Emporis building ID (P455) only supports buildings, not building complexes. See https://www.emporis.com/complex/127099 vs https://www.emporis.com/buildings/127099. Another solution would be to keep a single property but to include the prefix in the value. That might be more foolproof, but that would require changing everything that has already been done and used. Zolo (talk) 09:10, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

Discussion
@Runner1928, Pigsonthewing: done, been around for enough time, obviously acceptable given that we already have Emporis building ID (P455), the reason for opposing the creation was just meaningless. --Zolo (talk) 16:52, 31 October 2015 (UTC)

I want to document more data about Pokémon at Wikidata, and for that some new Properties are needed, without this can't work. These are some of them, that are really similar to each other. --MGChecker (talk) 18:33, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

Discussion
  • This seems overly specific, as there are probably similar potential properties from other video games and fiction. Maybe there's some way to have a more generic property for all of these? (Another potential problem to consider is whether there could be copyright concerns with importing this data.) --Yair rand (talk) 22:24, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
  • I think it could be useful even if it's only used for Pokémon:
    • There are some other specific Pokémon properties till now: P1112 (P1112) and Pokédex / Pokémon browser number (P1685).
    • Each of them would be used at least 721 times and counting.
    • They are only numbers that could everyone calculate out of the game data, I think they have now threshold of originality.
    • I know a German wiki (www.pokewiki.org), with CC 3.0-by-sa,. as Wikimedia projects, from which data was imported as well.
    • I'm preety sure that the data I want to use is completely right (I guess, between 99.7% and 100%), because they are patrolling the RC really mindful by using patrolling as validated revisions.
    • Every data what would be needed for the new properties were in one template except of around 50 special cases.
  • I don't know in which cases, but i can imagine really good that HP, Attack, DEfense and Speed could be good for other games too. (I only don't know if there fix points like the base stats of a pokémon.)
  • By the way, I think other properties as Pokémon type (really basic) and much more, but I don't know if objects for items (of the game), attacks, abiliities and properties for attack strength, levels where they learn new attacks, gender ratio, abilities, catch rate, egg groups, EV yield, height, weight, species and so on would go to wide. ( Look here, Wikidata and fnacruft is an interesting topic, yesterday I have discussed about it with Sjoerddebruin at IRC. But I think type and the 6 properties proposed in this section are really basic. --MGChecker (talk) 15:47, 1 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I have two problems with this. From a statistics perspective, it is far better to record the actual values of the component statistics in the database, and allow the client to build the derived statistic from them. However, that leads to my second issue, and that is the question of whether we are going to start recording game statistics in WD. As stated, statistics such as hit points, speed, defense, etc. are used by a ton of games, and there are many more stats that are widely used as well. If we are going to open this door, I think it needs to be discussed and implemented more comprehensively. Josh Baumgartner (talk) 16:33, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Instead of having one property for perihelium and one for perigeum etc, I choose one periapsis-property for them all. Separating last/next_periapsis can be solved with software, when you compare with current date.

  • For all of them the minimum is data about when they were elected, resigned (or died), changed party etc. [2]
  • At least for the current members it has a short bio, contact information and the parliamentary commitees they belong to. [3]
  • It even has their speeches for the last 6-7 years [4]

The MpId corresponds to a member of the parliament. Information is given through various URLs with the same MpId.

That would give very good information to be used for any reason, for links from Wikipedia or for extracting more information to put in Wikidata.

Parish code is a 4 digit code! See here - same site as KM1. It is precisely documentation of parish codes. 7 digit code is not usefull, because all other sources use 4 digit code and is the official standard. See here for a other source.

short author name

Domainitems about a scientific publication
ExampleSmith J
Motivation

The WikiProject Source Metadata wants to create a large amount of items for scientific papers, initially to use as references in Wikipedia. This will have to be done (semi-)automatically; a prototype tool is available. Most of the items created will be quite richly filled with statements, however, authors are a problem. There is no way to (reliably) identify individual authors and/or create items for them automatically. The options are:

  1. Create no authors (current mode of the prototype tool); this would prevent the items from being used as references on Wikipedia, a central aim of the project
  2. Add only authors we know exist as Wikidata items; huge manual effort, and author list would be incomplete ⇒ #1
  3. Auto-create items for all authors; that would lead to a lot of items to be created, all of them with only instance of (P31):human (Q5) and no other information, with many of them duplicates but no good way of detecting those

Therefore, I propose this property, where we could just add the author "Smith J" as a string statement. That would allow the use of the item as a Wikipedia reference, track all of the authors as best as we can, and allow for future "conversion" to author (P50) as we identify authors (manually or e.g. via ORCID).

I am aware this seems to contradict the "all linked up" Wikidata philosophy at first glance, but this is a special case, where we do lack the information to do it better. It is a pragmatic compromise, worth doing IMHO. --Magnus Manske (talk) 10:56, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Discussion

Sounds like a good idea though it should theoretically only be a workaround. Will you provide a game which aims to convert these "string" authors to actual item links? Or what's the status of ORCID? Is it reasonable that we are able to map these strings to items using ORCID within the next months? -- Bene* talk 12:43, 9 September 2015 (UTC)

Yes, it is a workaround. It decouples the creation of items about scientific publications and the identification/creation of author items. Apparently, there is a batch of ORCID-to-DOI links in CrossRef, which we might get at some point. Even then, we need to semi-automatically match ORCID authors to the authors in the "associated" papers. Also, ORCID currently covers only a relatively small number of authors, and will not cover old/dead authors. Some "Smith J" will remain for a long time. A game might come along in time, though the identification seems too difficult to do in a game. --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:06, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support sounds interesting. What would be the source(s) of import ? would identifiers (ORCID or others) be included ? would you provide lists of such items, to work upon ? this is, actually, how libraries work : create unidentified authors, and then merge them with created authorities ;)
perhaps it could be used for Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings too... for now the names are put in en label, and manually searched and created afterwards... lot of hard manual work ;) --Hsarrazin (talk) 12:50, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
The plan is to (incrementally, in batches) create ~300K items for all scientific publications used in Wikipedia citations. Not my project, I just provide a tool and see this property as an integral part. The question is, do we create and resolve stings or whole items? The latter would be quite messy; 300K papers with, what, 5 authors on average, would be 1.5M author items, sparse, many of them duplicates. Not pretty. --Magnus Manske (talk) 13:07, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support on the basis of detailed discussion I have had with Magnus. This seems the least messy approach. If you think about it, ORCID by itself cannot solve the issue of authors who are not easy to track down as individuals: and it concerns itself only with "current" authors. So, a piecemeal approach makes sense, with disambiguation of more common name strings postponed. Charles Matthews (talk) 13:02, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose let the bot parse the string and store those "only-short-name-is-known" authors as elements. Technical tools problems shall not be the reason for bad design. Also proposed property is not consistent with different international standards. I.e. in some countries author shall be specified as "J. Smith", in some as "Smith J.", in some as "Jonh D. Smith". -- Vlsergey (talk) 13:43, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
What do you mean by "elements"? Items, perhaps? And this property is not requested because of a "technical tool problem"; a tool can happily create millions of sparse, duplicate, never-to-be-resolved items; but I'd rather avoid that. I requested the property so we don't have to clean up after that, but still can convert the strings to real items over time. And yes, the strings would not be consistent with "international standards", because such a thing does not exists across scientific journals. There could be some minor "fixing" on import, e.g. "J Smith" => "Smith J", but we can also do that after the fact with bots. A list of all strings used will be easy enough to retrieve. --Magnus Manske (talk) 15:37, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment The problem is that there are many other situations that need us to input names without really needing an item about the person. To build the result table of a marathon, for instance, do we really need an item on each and single runner? So before this property is created, we should really think about possible extensions or limitations that may happen to its use. Thierry Caro (talk) 17:45, 10 September 2015 (UTC)
In a comment above, Wikidata:WikiProject sum of all paintings has also entertained this idea. I think applications outside the initial scope would be OK, but we should keep the number of such areas as low as possible. The aim here is not to prevent a lot of items from being created; rather, it is to prevent the creation of many extremely sparse items, with little chance of merging or improving them in the near future. Yet a full list of authors is required for the downstream functionality (citations). Do we want a full list of marathon participants in a item? Maybe (though I'd imagine it could be a lot). Is that stamp collecting for it's own sake (nothing wrong with that), or do we want to be a primary repository for that data? We definitely want the painters for the "sum of all paintings", but this is at least an order of magnitude less data than the scientific publications authors, and I guess (!) many of the painters already have an item. So yes, it could be used for both; maybe we should see how it goes with the publications, and then have an RfC on expanding the scope? --Magnus Manske (talk) 09:02, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support. We already made the decision (See Help:References) that every document referenced by wikipedia or other wmf wikis should have an item on wikidata and that we should have items for the authors and publishers of these documents. As that has been decided this tool will be a useful step towards implementing that decision.
One thing I would ask for is a notable work (P800) or described at URL (P973) statement or something to help editors find the right "Smith J". Joe Filceolaire (talk) 16:03, 12 September 2015 (UTC)
The publication item containing the author will have at least PubMed and/or DOI to link back to the source of the information. There could also be an (automatically updated) "used in Wikipedia article" property, but that can be computed at any time. --Magnus Manske (talk) 20:47, 16 September 2015 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support I work a lot with old art catalogs and auction records, and "HdG" is a short author example that is not an abbreviation or part of a name, but simply a shorthand. It would be nice to be able to add this to the item for Hofstede de Groot. --Jane023 (talk) 06:42, 14 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support This property could also be used as a qualifier for more "regular" references: AFAIK we don't yet have a property for "Name as presented on the item" (inscription (P1684) comes close, but makes sense only for some works of art and usually is not restricted to the creator's name). -- Gymel (talk) 17:12, 14 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I just tried to create my own article (Right Temporoparietal Cortex Activation during Visuo-proprioceptive Conflict (Q20973139) and Modeling of activation data in the BrainMap database: Detection of outliers (Q20978712)) with Magnus' excellent sourcemd tool. I wonder how (possible) short names should merged with long names, e.g., for Right Temporoparietal Cortex Activation during Visuo-proprioceptive Conflict (Q20973139) one author is in Wikidata while the rest of us on the author list is not (yet). Even now I do not know how to edit the order of the values. One should think that a short name property should by default be deprecated and the information should eventually be moved to author (P50). Would gradual editing of short names and author (P50) after mass insertion be difficult? What about notability for values associated with author (P50)? Is the Wikidata community willing to have scientific authors, such as me that do not "feel" notable, as items in Wikidata? (Should I expect the two articles to be deleted?) — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 15:52, 17 September 2015 (UTC)
    • My approach would be to add series ordinal (P1545) qualifiers to both the "item authors" and "string authors". That would allow e.g. the {{Cite}} Lua code to reconstruct the correct order for the citation. The qualifiers would have to be moved whenever a "string author" gets replaced with an item. --Magnus Manske (talk) 12:20, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
      • So the ordering of the values has no semantic interpretation now? I suppose then one would have to use something like series ordinal (P1545). — Finn Årup Nielsen (fnielsen) (talk) 13:09, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
        • It does, but for many paper items we will have "hybrid" authors, some with items, some with this short name property. They all have an order within their respective property, but that breaks the order if they are to be displayed arbitrarily mixed. --Magnus Manske (talk) 21:18, 19 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment If short names are adapted it may be an idea to have another property for authors that indicate author name variations, so that short names can be matched with items. In by "Brede Wiki" have such a field, see, e.g., Paul T. Costa, Jr. where I presently record "variation1 = P. T. Costa Jr. | variation2 = P. T. Jr Costa | variation3 = Paul T. Jr Costa | variation4 = Paul T. Costa". My favorite example is Richard S. J. Frackowiak (Q20028848) that I found in 12 different spelled and misspelled versions among the citations in NeuroImage (Q1981225).

Motivation

For many (human) diseases, there are known genetic markers which modify the risk for getting the disease. But in many cases, there is no data on the detailed genetic mechanism (e.g. in Genome-wide association studies there are only tag SNPs) or there are several genetic changes for one gene/genetic locus leading to disease. Furthermore, for many studies in predigrees, only data on linked gene/genetic marker are available. This property will allow establishing this general link and is a part of the ontology we proposed some time ago. Sebotic (talk) 20:21, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support Good, was wondering how SNPs might be handled. Saw the mutations properties, but SNPs aren't exactly the same as mutations. Gtsulab (talk) 20:50, 16 October 2015 (UTC)

Symbol support vote.svg Support Supporting because this covers a lot of what we know about the relations between genes and disease. For example, most of the very important OMIM database would be best modeled this way. --I9606 (talk)

Symbol support vote.svg Support This would be very useful for classifying relationships for many gene-disease pairs, and is especially applicable for data sources such as OMIM and GWAS. juleong (talk) 6:02, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

@Sebotic: Am I right, that these links are just statistical correlations?--Kopiersperre (talk) 07:53, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

@Kopiersperre: The associations made in GWAS and family studies are from different statistical tests, see Wikipedia:Genetic_association. But for other data like from the decipher database, direct genetic tests of parents and children with congenital disease/syndroms have been performed. Furthermore, in order to link a genetic mutation/variant to a disease (on a population scale), the only current way of doing that is to perform statistical analysis (GWAS). In vitro data can be supportive here, but cannot establish the link currently. Genetically modified animals (e.g. mice) could also provide clues, but they are not humans. So I think having this data in WD is very valuable. Sebotic (talk) 22:47, 17 October 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment This is highlighting an issue that I've run into too. Religious hierarchy/structure is hard to classify on Wikidata right now, particularly because each religious group has its own specifics and vocabulary. We're getting into confusing territory with this proposed property, religion (P140) and religious order (P611). We'd need to clarify their purposes specifically. Best I can tell, these properties currently apply as follows:
    • religion (P140) names the specific self-identified religious affiliation of a person or organization (not a place) — which would already fill the need for the domain of eparchy (Q285181).
    • religious order (P611) names the religious order "which the monastery housed" (??) but should really apply to a person too — clarifying that someone is Jesuit or a Sister of Mercy or whatever
    • this new one, if it is necessary, I would maybe clarify as religious affiliation instead. It would name the affiliation of place of worship (Q1370598) (broadened from temple (Q44539)) A broader option than religious order (P611)? Am I understanding original proposal correctly?

Maybe a more abstract relation would be better, something like governed by in the case of Metropolis? While I see a necessity for a religious denomination, the definition is not coherent. If a more abstract property was defined (in case of territories, not buildings), we could express facts, such as a territory owned by/governed by a particular political group (not necessarily religious organization). Still I think building owned by an organization is different from a region governed by an organization, which is also different from religious denomination. Apohllo (talk) 14:31, 16 January 2015 (UTC)
And how to deal with such cases:
Sarja Church (Q3919090) => owned by (P127): Catholic Church (Q9592)
Sarja Church (Q3919090) => religious denomination: Belarusian Orthodox Church (Q598783)?
Owner of the building is the Catholic Church, but this building is used as an Orthodox church.
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I don't think this duplicates owned by (P127), because this property indicates the "owner" but we have plenty of historical cases where this "owner" (and the associated religion) changed with the time as the consequence of historical events, e.g. christian churches used as mosque or the other way around, just think of Hagia Sophia (Q12506) which went through three different "owners". In this case, how do you distinguish the current one from the historical ones? owned by (P127) may be an alternative for the "current" one but for the historical, adding them as additional values for owned by (P127) doesn't sound as the best choice, considering that owned by (P127) is defined as "the legal owner of" and this legal owner can only be the current one and not the previous ones. Additionally, owned by (P127) is not so intuitive to be used as long as the cult associated to a religious building or location is concerned. It looks to me that proposing to use owned by (P127) is more a subjective and way too generic interpretation of this property. A more formal and dedicated one could be considered, specific to the cult but without any inference about "legal ownership". --L736E (talk) 15:09, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose This is not a good definition: the first time I read this proposal I understood that the catholic church is still the owner of Holy Spirit Cathedral (Q2588857)but looking at the history the catholic church lost the building and now the orthodox church is the legal owner. If this is the correct case we have to use owned by (P127) with start time and end time to specify the order of owner. Same for the different names of a building: use "official name" property with qualifier start time and end time. Snipre (talk) 20:53, 14 June 2015 (UTC)

[Google Translate] (edited by TomT0m) Hello everyone. I work mostly on Wikimedia Commons cycling races, in Nord-Pas-de-Calais and Belgium, to illustrate the relevant articles. This project is funded by a local chapter. So we're interested in articles and topics that exists in different languages ​​to spread up our work. Currently, there is ten languages version of the articles on some races like Paris–Roubaix (Q33992) View with Reasonator View with SQID , but each user must himself fill in the overall results on his language, and is generally limited to the tenth or 20th first riders. This is quite long and tedious to do. So I work now on the centralization of the results on Wikidata, and this is an important point. Our goal is to put the riders ranks on Wikidata on some place, so that eventually the data can automatically be reused in Wikipedias when they will be ready. Riders' ranks table now also uses the nationality of the rider his team, and the information should be stored on Wikidata as it will be used in many races. Such a system would already be useable with a few thousand items, and would allow any foreign speaker to quickly create the articles. The other benefit is that the work on data would be performed by a user of any language, which would realease time for the others to write up their own articles on different area. Question about the general ranking of a races: Sometimes there are stage races where a property classification at the stage would help, but I prefer to wait until the general ranking case is solved before launching the other proposals. There is also team rankings as a similar case. This property is close to ranking (P1352) except that it would rank the elements of a competition and not racer. I am available for any questions, if possible in French, but I can translate English . Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick (talk) 10:32, 1 May 2015 (UTC) }}

Discussion
Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick the examples you list seem to indicate that you intend to use this property to list the participants in a race with qualifiers giving the other parameters in the table related to that race and that participant. We already have "participant (P710)" to do that job so I don't think you need to create this new property. See what I have added to 2015 Grand Prix de Denain (Q19249082). Does that work?
I assumed the column headed "pnt" is 'points'. "UCI" looks like some other points system. That is a problem as you cannot have a qualifier on a qualifier so if you use number of points/goals/set scored (P1351) for both UCI and pnt then there is no way to distinguish one from the other. You may have to create a new property for one of these. Hope this helps. Filceolaire (talk) 19:05, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
  • "general classification" doesn't seem right. I think Filceolaire probably said what needed to be said. (And would be misused in any sort of number of ways.) --Izno (talk) 21:40, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
@Filceolaire, Izno: : Au début, je pensais comme vous deux, avec l'utilisation de la propriété participants, et puis j'ai réfléchi, et j'ai compris que participants serait plutôt utile pour lister les équipes. Classement général est utile parce que classement d'étape l'est tout autant, et dans le cyclisme, nous avons énormément de courses à étapes, qui nécessitent de faire la distinction entre le classement de l'étape et le classement général, ce dernier étant actualisé après chaque étape. L'exemple que j'ai donné n'est pas le bon, Triptyque des Monts et Châteaux 2015 conviendrait mieux. Il y a nécessité de séparer le classement d'étape et le classement général, mais aussi de pouvoir faire un classement du meilleur jeune, un classement par équipes (plus rapide à faire)... Et donc je lance cette réflexion parce que je souhaite que tous les cas particuliers soient réglés. Même si je prévois de créer un élément par étape, on aura toujours un classement d'étape et un classement général, ces derniers devront être remplis séparément, car dans les deux cas je souhaite associer au coureur sa place, mais aussi et surtout le temps qu'il a réalisé ou son écart avec le vainqueur (voir les articles francophones). L'objectif est bien entendu à terme de pouvoir centraliser sur Wikidata tous les classements, pour faciliter la création d'articles dans les petites Wikipedia. Vous avez ici quelques exemples de classements que nous pourrons écrire sur Wikidata.
[Google Translate] : At first, I thought like you two, with the use of the participants property, and then I thought, and I realized that participants would be more useful to list the teams. Overall ranking is useful because the classification stage is equally, and in cycling, we have a lot of stage races, which require to distinguish between the classification of the stage and the overall classification, the latter being updated after each step. The example I gave is not good, Triptyque Monts et Châteaux 2015 would be more appropriate. There is need to separate the classification stage and the overall classification, but also able to make a young rider classification, a classification by teams (faster to make) ... So I start thinking this because I want all special cases are resolved. Although I plan to create an item-by-step, there will always be a step standings and overall standings, they will need to be filled separately, because in both cases the rider I wish to associate its place, but above time he realized his or behind the winner (see Francophone articles). The goal is of course to be able to run on Wikidata centralize all the rankings, to facilitate the creation of products in small Wikipedia. Here you have an example of differents types of classifications that we will write on Wikidata. Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick (talk) 19:28, 2 May 2015 (UTC)
Jérémy-Günther-Heinz Jähnick, Izno participant (P710) is meant for the individuals. Each can have a 'member of sports team (P54)' qualifier to denote what team they are on. You can also use 'participant (P710)' to list the teams but thinking about it there is probably a good case for creating a new property for 'participating team'. That would be useful for football matches and other team sports and Olympic events too.
You will probably need to create separate items for each 'étape' if you want to record the results for these. Use 'part of (P361)' and 'has part (P527)' to link between the race and the various étape.
[Google translate] participant (P710) est destiné aux individus . Chacun peut avoir une 'member of sports team (P54)' qualificatif pour désigner quelle équipe ils sont.

But the fact remains that each step , as here the 1re étape du Tour de France 2014, has a classification of the stage, a general classification, a points classification, a ranking of best climber, a young rider classification and a team classification. As shown in Catégorie:Étape du Tour de France 2014, these new properties are required for each step. participant (P710) is projected to be useful to generate lists of runners , accompanied by member of sports team (P54) and dossart number.

Toujours dans le cadre de mon projet concernant le cyclisme, je m'intéresse aujourd'hui au nombre de partants et au nombre d'arrivants, deux paramètres de l'infobox. Sur tous les articles concernants des courses cyclistes (mais ça peut aussi concerner d'autres sports), il y a la mention du nombre de partants et d'arrivants. Dans le cadre de courses à étapes, on doit retrouver ces informations en plus dans chaque élément d'étape. En ce sens, le nombre de partants et différent du nombre de participants à un évènement.

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose as proposed, but sympathetic to the idea. What this really boils down to is creating an ordered set, which is not something we have a lot of architecture for yet. To use the examples, essentially STS-124 (Q217550) is part of a set 'Mark Kelly spaceflights', within which it is number 3 chronologically. As stated above, if we have all of his spaceflights properly set up with dates and links, we can derive this through a query. It is not a good idea to set up qualifier properties for every type of item that can be put into an ordered set, especially since such sets are often able to be ordered in many different ways. Josh Baumgartner (talk) 17:03, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose. Don't add this info to the item for the flight.

The NGA (fka NIMA) have generated a large catalog of geographic entities, available for download at http://geonames.nga.mil/gns/html/namefiles.html . These entries are identified via the "GNS UFI", analogous to GNIS ID (P590) except that the latter is solely for entities within the US, and the former is used for entities outside the US. It seems inconsistent to support GNIS IDs but not GNS IDs.

Getting a good source for these identifiers is going to be a little tricky. Here are some ideas:

  • What about saying "uncertainty corresponds to" (or "+- corresponds to"). It would be item-datatype and could link to 1-sigma, 2-sigma, etc. Otherwise I think many people will use +-0 for numbers and only add the uncertainty in the qualifiers. --Tobias1984 (talk) 09:28, 28 October 2015 (UTC)

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose I would be in favor of an "uncertainty" property for qualifiers as suggested by Tobias1984 above, with various items as target (standard deviation, 2-sigma, or whatever else is commonly used).

Sometimes for a measurement there will be a range of accepted values rather than just a single value. Being able to qualify upper and lower bounds reduces our need to create specialized properties.

The sample isn't complete. Would the value of the property be set to "unknown"? --- Jura 17:57, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
I only included the upper bound in this proposal to indicate the upper bound; the lower bound is included in the lower bound proposal. It would be a good idea to require both an upper and lower bound, even if there is no known upper or lower bound. For example, an lower bound of 25 with no upper bound would represent the range [25, inf). James Hare (NIOSH) (talk) 19:04, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
Actually, you raise a good point. If upper and lower bounds are qualifiers, what does that leave as the "main" answer? I admittedly don't have a good answer to that question. Someone else might. In the meantime, I have a test case on Test Wikidata. James Hare (NIOSH) (talk) 19:11, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
earliest date (P1319) and latest date (P1326) work in a similar way. It's something that the datatype is said to be doing, but hasn't made its way into the GUI.
An alternate solution could be:
--- Jura 19:23, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment As an alternative we could also have an item-datatype qualifier, that links to "lower bound" and "upper bound" and would qualify values that are ranges. I think, if worded correclty, it could also be useful in other places. The has quality (P1552) solution is for my sense too far away from what a qualifier should be (not a new statement, but a further description of the value. And if the numeric value is the qualifier we have no way of experessing measurement-conditions. --Tobias1984 (talk) 20:44, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment one might as well go with the following solution:
silica dust (Q20963647)IDLH (P2129)→ <value: 50 mg/m^3> → <qualifier: is a>: Q21067467
silica dust (Q20963647)IDLH (P2129)→ <value: 25 mg/m^3> → <qualifier: is a>: Q21067468 --- Jura 09:30, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
@Jura1: But "is a" would be used similar to "instance of" and would generate quite some confusion. Ranges are quite common and would deserve a more explicit qualifier. How about "part of range measured". --Tobias1984 (talk) 13:08, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
The existing "is a" property can be used to qualify the statement. --- Jura 13:11, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
The English label for instance of (P31) is "instance of." A statement that said "25, instance of (P31) Q21067468; 50, instance of (P31) Q21067467," while slightly awkward in phrasing, is I think an acceptable way of modeling this. James Hare (NIOSH) (talk) 13:16, 7 October 2015 (UTC)

ExampleIDLH (P2129) silica dust (Q20963647) → 25 mg/m^3 (lower bound)
Motivation

Sometimes for a measurement there will be a range of accepted values rather than just a single value. Being able to qualify upper and lower bounds reduces our need to create specialized properties. See also the proposal for an upper bound qualifier property. James Hare (NIOSH) (talk) 17:06, 5 October 2015 (UTC)
