Wikidata:Property proposal/EU Publication office ID
Originally proposed at Wikidata:Property proposal/Authority control
The Publications Office of the European Union manages controlled vocabularies that are used by public administrations in Europe as reference data. By mapping these controlled vocabularies to wikidata entities will give the advantage of being able to better integrate data sources.
- Comment @Sander VD: you forgot related items on the examples. Nomen ad hoc (talk) 18:49, 14 July 2019 (UTC).
- Comment @Sander VD: If you want to use the full europa URL, there's no need for a separate prop, just use exact match (P2888). If you want to have a separate prop, what are the different authorities (vocabularies) and number of entries in each? --Vladimir Alexiev (talk) 13:34, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
- Comment @Vladimir Alexiev: The full list of authority tables can be found here, the country list I'm interested in mapping now contains 253 concepts, but the file types and languages taxonomies are also on my wish list. Since the publications office lists are not yet available in a SPARQL endpoint getting a (meaningful) count of concepts for all of them is a bit cumbersome at the moment.
- Comment If the prefix is always http://publications.europa.eu/resource/authority/, then the data type should be "external identifier" with values "country/AND", "place/AUT_VIE", and "currency/EUR". The URL formatter for a human-friendly page appears to be https://publications.europa.eu/en/web/eu-vocabularies/at-concept/-/resource/$1. Triples containing the linked data URI can the be automatically added into WDQS by specifying formatter URI for RDF resource (P1921). With the above changes I am prepared to support (useful for the translations if nothing else; and far better to have an external-id than to clutter up above the line with exact match (P2888). Otherwise this is an Oppose. Jheald (talk) 19:43, 15 July 2019 (UTC)
- Comment All examples result in "Page not found. Sorry but the page you are looking for was moved or doesn’t exist anymore." --Jneubert (talk) 13:24, 20 July 2019 (UTC)
- Comment @Jheald: Sorry for the delay, I was off for vacation, just got back to work. Thanks for the tip Jheald, that does indeed seem like the proper solution. In this case however, wouldn't it be more appropriate to name the property 'EU Publications office authority table id'? The publications office has other types of identifiers (for referring to legislation for instance), which would be out of scope with the URI prefix.
- Comment @Jneubert: The examples are not URL, but URIs that are not necessarily dereferenceable. The first example for instance can be found in this controlled vocabulary: https://publications.europa.eu/en/web/eu-vocabularies/at-dataset/-/resource/dataset/country
