Motivation[edit]

Knotilus is an authoritative source of information on mathematical knots and links, for which both Wikipedia and Wikidata have a number of entries. It is maintained by a group of mathematicians and hosted at the w:University of Western Ontario. Providing links to Knotilus will provide Wikidata users access to a wide range of information about these entities that goes far beyond the range of information currently planned to be stored on Wikidata, as well as providing a source of potential data for those entries. If this property is created, I hope eventually to be able to fill in values for existing entries using my bot.

Note: Knotilus is currently down, but I'm hoping it will be up again soon. I'd like to keep this property proposal live, as I believe that it is clear that this is intended by its authors to be a long-lived project, and it has been running since at least 2004. In the meantime, here's a recent Internet Archive snapshot. -- The Anome (talk) 09:33, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
