Could you give more detail? I looked at this site, http://www.slu.se/sv/centrumbildningar-och-projekt/artdatabanken/, but a quick look leaves me mystified. A look at https://www.dyntaxa.se/taxon/info/2000976 shows only a barebones skeleton. - Brya (talk) 17:40, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

I am dubious as 1) this does not appear to have original information, but is just a gathering of material from elsewhere and 2) this is a local database (this is also the case for the two proposals below), so this would start a trend to have a database for every country (and there are many countries). - Brya (talk) 05:00, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

-- Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 16:24, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

Why restrict to holotype (Q1061403)? --Succu (talk) 16:45, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Yes, that is a good question: the normal thing would be "type" (nomenclatural type). BTW: why in French? Why disregard databases? Perhaps we should do "type locality" first, as there are quite a few Wikipedia pages already reporting that. - Brya (talk) 17:28, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
"French"? "disregard databases"? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:01, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Well, "taxons" is French for "taxa". And I imagine there are more sources for this information, in particular databases. And I don't see a reason for separate properties, or qualifiers, for the several kinds of types. There (usually) is only one type, and it is in only one place, and to that location it is irrelevant what the nature of the type is. It would make more sense to have a property "nomenclatural type" referring to a type specimen (or illustration) and attach a qualifier to that, to indicate the nature of the type.
        But location of the type is pretty far down the list of properties I would want. I would rather have a property indicating the gender of a generic name, or indicating if a specific name/epithet is a noun or adjective. Type locality looks more desirable as well. Or, if there is interest in types, a direct link to a picture of the type (there are tens of thousands of these available). - Brya (talk) 05:40, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
You are of course welcome to propose any additional properties you see fit; we're hardly likely to run out of space for them. The term "Taxons" is in the pro-forma proposal template; I'm not aware that the source parameter is required to be exhaustive. I wonder how you would distinguish Paratype (Q926578), Syntype (Q719822), and allotypes, from holotypes? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 12:39, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
Paratypes, syntypes and allotypes are not really an issue: they are not types, but terms having "type" in the term indicating them (there are a lot such terms). Actually, syntypes are odd, they are not types under the ICNafp, but they are (more or less) under the ICZN. However, the moment a serious taxonomist looks at them they stop being types. - Brya (talk) 17:25, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
I'm not averse to having a single "type specimen" (or whatever it might be called) property, if that's what "serous taxonomists" advise. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:09, 23 February 2015 (UTC)
We could have another property for other type(s) or have one and add a qualifier, I suppose. Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 21:01, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Symbol neutral vote.svg Neutral: I suppose it would not hurt to have this, but I don't see it has any priority. If we would have links to type specimens, this would become mostly superfluous. - Brya (talk) 06:00, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

type is held by is superfluous. We can model this allready:

  1. Create a new item, name it DONMG:1983.98,
  2. add collection (P195) = Doncaster Museum (Q5295507),
  3. add instance of (P31) = type specimen (Q3546082),
  4. add taxonomic type (P427) = DONMG:1983.98 to the taxon item.

What we need is a property for the type status. And we need a clear understandung how to model a Specimen or Taxon Occurrence. The new created item DONMG:1983.98 could have a bunch of other usefull information eg:

  • catalog number
  • collector
  • collecting date
  • geolocation
  • type for taxonname
  • sex
  • ...

-- Succu (talk) 12:26, 24 February 2015 (UTC)

I assume the taxonomic type (P427) = DONMG:1983.98 and perhaps the collection (P195) = Doncaster Museum (Q5295507) (a qualifier?) would be added to the taxon item.
        Well yes, I suppose this is possible. It would also be possible to give every specimen ever collected its own item. Given that we have some 1.9 million taxon names we could have some 1.8 million items for type specimens/illustrations. However, it looks like an immense amount of effort for only a small gain in the amount of information. Who would really want to know this? There has been only a small start in eliminating completely fictitious taxa, so data quality is far from guaranteed in what data now is present. And I imagine there are other properties to add that would be more interesting to the user of data. - Brya (talk) 17:31, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
We have a little bit more than 500 usages of taxonomic type (P427). I do not expect a great incease using type speciemens in the near future. But we have c:Category:Type specimens too. So if someone is interested s/he could work on these. If Andy Mabbett agrees I would remodel this proposal into one for type status. --Succu (talk) 18:34, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
BTW: Europeana (Q234110) has more than 75,000 images of type specimens. We can link to them via Europeana ID (P727). --Succu (talk) 18:56, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Five hundred usages of taxonomic type (P427) is indeed very little, especially given how commonly this is included on Wikipedia's. What do you mean by "type status"? The link to Europeana (Q234110) does not lead to type specimens (there are four specimens of Schotia africana on the first page). Typing in "holotype" gives 16 results. - Brya (talk) 19:39, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
type status - or however we name that property - should provide the „type of the type” eg holotype (Q1061403), lectotype (Q2439719)... --Succu (talk) 21:06, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Oh yes, that. As pointed out above we will indeed need that, as a qualifier, once we have some kind of property/structure to handle type specimens. Something like "nature of type" ("kind of type"?) looks better to me; they have the status of "name-bearing type" or "nomenclature type". - Brya (talk) 05:55, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
I gave it a second thought and came to the conclusion that we don't need a new property. Have a look at the value of taxonomic type (P427) in Ichthyosaurus anningae (Q19346236), Acanthocalycium ferrarii (Q337692) (holotypes) and Cereus hexagonus (Q1055079) (an illustration as lectotype). instance of (P31) should do the job. --Succu (talk) 15:03, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
That would work, in principle. It will then be convenient to have an "is the type of" property. -Brya (talk) 18:40, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
Yep. That's the one we need. --Succu (talk) 18:43, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
However, misuse seems likely. It would be appropriate for a type specimen to have "is the type of" and for an animal it would be appropriate for a type species to have "is the type of", but for a plant species it would not be appropriate to have "is the type of". - Brya (talk) 18:58, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
Sry, but I do not catch your point. A type specimen acting as a nomenclature type should be linked to the taxon item. Otherwise it might be got lost. --Succu (talk) 19:45, 25 February 2015 (UTC)
There is a big difference between the ICZN and the ICNafp: Under the ICZN the type of a family is a type genus, under the ICNafp the type of a family is a specimen (or illustration), and it may be indicated by referring to a type genus (the "type genus" is only an indication, not a type). Thus, there is an asymmetrical relationship (even under the ICZN there is a degree of asymmetry: a single type genus can be the type for a tribe, a subfamily, a family, a superfamily, etc) . - Brya (talk) 06:54, 26 February 2015 (UTC)

Motivation

Annotation from Wikidata:WikiProject Chemistry/Properties made by user:Michał Sobkowski: "Decomposition is usually indicated in m.p. or b.p. records (as is proposed here, see above). However, it is not necessarily coincided with these values. Decomposition may take place without phase transition, e.g. in gas phase; an observed "boiling point" may be just decomposition into volatile product(s) without reaching the real b.p. of a substance; the phase of a decomposing substance may not be known. Thus, instead of adding unprecise remarks to the m.p./b.p.'s (which are reasonable only in printed material, to save place), an additional field assigned exclusively for this value would be advantageous." ∼Wostr (talk) 18:20, 12 June 2015 (UTC)

Discussion
@Pigsonthewing: The Freebase link does not work for me at the moment, so I can't look at the exmaple. I think the proposal needs a more general discussion on how things like this should be handled. The measure is meaningless without knowing (1) how it was calculated and (2) what the calculated uncertainty is (3) if it is given as a fraction, percentage or in absolute values. For example en:Copernicium even has an asymmetric uncertainty: 357 (+112/−108)K given in the absolute measure and the mode of calculation should be mentioned in the source. I am not sure the number-datatype can handle this complexity. We need some kind of datatype that gives us a few fields for all these values. For example Uncertainty: (Field 1: +Uncertainty)[Number], (Field 2: -Uncertainty, Optional: only use when asymmetric)[Number], (Field 3: Relative, Absolute)[Item], (Field 4: Mode of Calculation)[Item]. --Tobias1984 (talk) 13:24, 18 June 2015 (UTC)

Isn't this an option?--Kopiersperre (talk) 19:05, 22 June 2015 (UTC)

@Kopiersperre: This is not scientific because this is the result of an evaluation: you have to provide the reference of the table in order to be able to understand what soluble is. Solubility in g/l or mg/l is an absolute value and not a relative like the ones you proposed. Then this table doesn't allow to classify components having the same class of solubility: between 100 and 1000 g/l there is a huge gap. Better use absolute values and let later the data user filter or translate these data into relative index. Snipre (talk) 13:31, 23 June 2015 (UTC)

(@Sbisolo:, @Tobias1984:, @John Mortimore:; it could be a subproperty of habitus; it is important to know that a mineral appears to have a higher symmetry although it is not perfect) Chris.urs-o (talk) 07:23, 4 January 2015 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment I am wondering if it is also possible to query this. A mineral has a crystal structure that links to a symmetry. The habit of a mineral also has a symmetry. If the symmetries don't match, then the habit is called e.g. pseudocubic. But maybe this explicit approach would be good too. --Tobias1984 (talk) 08:16, 7 January 2015 (UTC)
  • Ok, let's try. The crystal system is a physical characteristic determined in the laboratory. The habit is a visual appearance of the species sample. I suppose that the pseudocrystal habit would be a subproperty of habit.
  • Halit (NaCl) has a cubic symmetry, with following cell parameters: a =5.6404(1) Å =b =c and α=90° =β =γ
  • Analcime (Na2(Al2Si4O12) · 2H2O) has a triclinic symmetry, but it always looks pseudocubic. Cell parameters: a =13.723 to 13.733 Å =b =c
  • Boracite (Mg3(B7O13)Cl) has a orthorhombic symmetry, but often a pseudocubic morphology. Cell parameters: a = 8.577(6) Å, b = 8.553(8) Å, c = 12.09(1) Å
  • Perovskite (CaTiO3) has a orthorhombic symmetry, but often a pseudocubic morphology. Cell parameters: a = 5.447(1) Å, b = 7.654(1) Å, c = 5.388(1) Å
  • Bernalite (Fe(OH)3 · nH2O (n = 0.0 to 0.25)) has a orthorhombic symmetry. Morphology: flattened pyramidal crystals, pseudo-octahedral to pseudo-cubic. Cell parameters: a = 7.544 Å, b = 7.56 Å, c = 7.558 Å
  • Pertlikite (K2(Fe2+,Mg)2Mg4Fe23+Al(SO4)12 · 18H2O) has a tetragonal symmetry, but often a pseudocubic morphology. Cell parameters: a = 19.2080 Å, c = 27.2158 Å

  • This seems like an overly specific property. Wouldn't it be better to create a more general property that lists the packages supplied by a distribution, with the version number as a qualifier? (This would also imply making an item for each major version of a distribution. Also, some distributions ship multiple kernel versions over their lifetime, which I think would be difficult to express if kernel version already is a qualifier.) —Ruud 16:51, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Notified participants of Wikiproject Informatics : I think it would be better to use items for software versions, Python2.6 is an edition of python, for example, and that would make us aligned with Wikidata:WikiProject Books. TomT0m (talk) 12:11, 6 June 2015 (UTC)

Items for software versions would mean we create a new item for notepad++ 6.8.7.2 and InternetExplorer 11.0.9600.17801? --Pasleim (talk) 22:44, 6 June 2015 (UTC)
@Pasleim: I guess that when there is a lot of releases it's way overkill to go up to minor patch versions. But I guess not all of them are published anyway, even in that case there would not be 17801 items for 11.0.9600 :) If we would not maintain a history of versions with version search, nobody would create all the items anyway, except if this is done automatically. So I don't think we really have to worry about that. What we would gain is that when several distros includes Linux 4.2.1, we just have to say
< RHEL4.6 > has part search < Linux 4.2.1 >
 and not
< RHEL4.6 > has part search < Linux >
        version search < 4.2.1 >
and
< Ubuntu Zeta Zebra > has part search < Linux >
        version search < 4.2.1 >
, that we will be able to put statements about Linux 4.2.1, for example added feature, and regularity of the model, so less special cases in query or in infobox templates. TomT0m (talk) 11:33, 7 June 2015 (UTC)
@TomT0m, Pasleim: Notability for software releases is a really difficult topic. If we make items for versions will also mean that we run 2 approaches parallel. In any case we can only gather data about programs that have some kind of written release information. But we also need to ignore the bugfix releases if we want to keep the whole system manageable. Wikidata is also really bad for inputting long lists of data into a single property, which makes version history editing difficult. --Tobias1984 (talk) 15:44, 7 June 2015 (UTC)
@Tobias1984: Why would that be difficult ? We can make it very simple if we want. Like I said, it's not because we create items that the history on software that we will store be longer than if we do not. It's a separate question. It's because (hypothetically) we chose the create items solution that this will modify the number of statements per page. TomT0m (talk) 16:42, 7 June 2015 (UTC)

Why "number with dimension" instead of simply "number"?--MisterSanderson (talk) 00:48, 26 November 2013 (UTC)
Because this is a measurement of length. Remember that while current processors are measured in nanometers past processors were measured in micrometers and future processors will be measured in picometers. Filceolaire (talk) 07:46, 30 November 2013 (UTC)
Given the diameter of a silicon atom (over 0.2 nm), I think it will be fairly unlikely that we will ever need the measure lithographic processes in picometers ;) —Ruud 17:29, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

@Kopiersperre: That certainly makes things more complicated. In that case we should rely on independent measurements and not the marketing words. Maybe even require a qualifier that states how the measurement was made (e.g. with an ion probe). --Tobias1984 (talk) 15:02, 23 November 2014 (UTC)
I think what Kopiersperre means is that the term "22 nm" is the name of a particular lithographic process (sometimes it's qualified by the name of the semiconductor foundry), and should not be directly interpreted as a physical quantity (nor should we try to make it into one by relying on "independent measurements"). We can be pragmatic and make it into a number with dimension as the names of lithographic processes have always followed the convention of being a number followed by "micrometer" or "nanometer". —Ruud 17:00, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
Actually, Wikipedia already has articles on the various processes and Wikidata thus has items on them: 22 nanometer (Q1059061), 1.5 µm process (Q1135912), Category:International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors lithography nodes (Q7003854), ... We should probably link them to those instead. —Ruud 17:22, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

@Sergey kudryavtsev: I say we can totally have several items linked somehow, as functions with different domains are mathematically speaking different function. We could have
< complex number square function > generalization of search < real number square function >
, maybe with
< complex number square function > instance of (P31) miga < function that computes a square >
and
< real number square function > instance of (P31) miga < function that computes a square >
. TomT0m (talk) 10:47, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
Therefore you gets a incorrect (ambiguous item) example for this property. If square function (Q3075175) means "square function of a real number", we should rename it correctly, even if in English.
However my suggestion of domain (P1568) as qualifier looks reasonable and make it possible to handle with both ambiguous and definitely defined items. Even mathematical statement f(x): R → R shows a function domain and image together. -- Sergey kudryavtsev (talk) 12:13, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
I don't know, this seems later harder to use the item in a statement, requires also a qualifier, a default value ... On the other hand making two items is easy and makes the use of the items non ambiguous. Labels in Wikidata can be the same, it's the description that is used to disambiguate, so there is no problem of keeping the square function label for the function on real numbers. Creating a class item of function that have the usual properties of a square function also makes sense conceptually, it could be associated with those properties that makes us say this function is a square function, for example. This is way more advanced stuff than students could encounter when they first hear of the square function, and usually the Wikipedia article about square function is about the function on real numbers. So it is a model that leaves the room for several articles on Wikipedias that are for different kind of readers. TomT0m (talk) 13:19, 24 April 2015 (UTC)
Wikipedia usually discusses the real function in the first place, so the article should be linked to the real function item, which will be used to populate the main infobox. The complex function is usually only discussed in a section of the same article, and a second infobox linked to the complex function item can be added to that section. Therefore the class item is not going to be used by Wikipedias and the domain/codomain/input set/image statements can be left out from it. Petr Matas 12:11, 25 April 2015 (UTC)

Help scoping a lot of items and linking object to their sciences. A lot of structuring power, a help on automatic item disambiguation, a help on scoping Wikipedia article who sometimes mixes the two subjects. Can potentially help restoring lost interwikis : if some Wikipedia has an article on the science and the other one on the object, the interwiki language link might have been lost, as this is a common pattern a custom template can propose a link to the Wikidata item and redirect to the corresponding article in the other language.

Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose, is just part of (P361) for science--Kopiersperre (talk) 14:26, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
This is not "part of", it would be more like has part (P527), but I do not think it is exactly that either. I support the idea, but as a general rule, I think it should be used only with more generic values. If "number: subclass of: mathematical object", and "mathematics: study of: mathematical object", then it does not seem necessary to add "mathematics: study of: number" (else where do we stop ?) --Zolo (talk) 16:03, 14 October 2014 (UTC)
@Zolo: I just took the statements from the Wikipedia articles. Study of numbers is a pretty common definition of maths, so there is no harm, and numbers (or sets in maths foundations) can pretty much the starting point to encode any other math objects. So it's just a matter of choice, there is no problem with beeing somewhat redundant if their is no contradiction, it's not a big deal. And it's just a detail, I think it's important to link a science to the type of concept it studies (way more) :) TomT0m (talk) 11:43, 21 February 2015 (UTC)
Symbol support vote.svg Support, but wouldn't calculus be the study rather than the subject, with e.g. integral(s) and derivative(s) as the subject? —SamB (talk) 14:21, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Pictogram voting question.svg Question Is

< microscopy (Q1074953) (View with Reasonator) > study of search < microorganism (Q39833) (View with Reasonator) >

a good or a bad one? study of gives no sense to me. I think it's vice versa:

< calculus (Q149972) (View with Reasonator) > is studied by search < mathematics (Q395) (View with Reasonator) >
(or )
< organism (Q7239) (View with Reasonator) > are studied by search < biology (Q420) (View with Reasonator) >

    • Do you mean significant event (P793)? That seems to work, see my recent edits to 2014 Mount Ontake eruption (Q18145950). Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 07:52, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
      • Yep, that's what I mean. TomT0m (talk) 09:38, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
        • Is a significant event necessarily an eruption? People killed by an avalanche might be considerated as a significant event occured on a volcano flanks but its far from being an eruption, in my point of view. Also, consider this item as soemthing strictly related to VNUM and VEL items. Symbol support vote.svg SupportPaolobon140 (talk) 13:25, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
          • @Paolobon140: No it's not, but as the object will be an instance of eruption, this allows us to filter the relevant events in the infobox, for example. Or in a query. It's not hard. TomT0m (talk) 15:36, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
            • @TomT0m: I have proposed a new property because I wasn't sure that we could filter different relevant events for infobox. If is possible I'm agree to use significant event (P793). --ValterVB (talk) 15:59, 29 April 2015 (UTC)
              • @ValterVB: We need arbitrary access, not deployed yet (except in Wikidata) but the devs are working on it ATM and making progress. Should not be long, maybe in the next deployment, they seem to have made the groundwork. TomT0m (talk) 16:13, 29 April 2015 (UTC)

@ValterVB, Brya, Pigsonthewing, TomT0m, Pasleim, Paolobon140: The question which is not clear: do we have to create an item for each eruption or do we save data about eruptions as statements in the volcano item ? If we create an item for each eruption, we don't need a new property: just link the eruptions items with the volcano item using "part of" or similar properties. Snipre (talk) 23:43, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
@Snipre, ValterVB, Brya, Pigsonthewing, TomT0m, Pasleim:: I think saving data about eruptions as statements in the volcano items would be the best solution. That would originate a kind of history of known eruptions for every volcano item. VNUM number, which has been created a couple of weeks ago, would command on the eruptions list as well as official pages about volcanoes e.g. Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology site for the Philippines volcanoes.Paolobon140 (talk) 09:24, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
Yes, item is the better solution, and for me to use "part of" in eruption item is better than to use significant event (P793) in volcano item. If no one oppose, we can delete this proposal. --ValterVB (talk) 16:44, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
I don't mind either way. - Brya (talk) 17:10, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
@ValterVB, Paolobon140: Using part of to mix an object with an event is a terrible idea. A leg is part of a body. A football match is a part of a competition. An event is a part of a bigger event. But an event is not a part of a physical object, or a physical object is not a part of an event. Events involves physical objects ... an eruption is an event in the life of a volcano. See the example in Help:Basic membership properties. TomT0m (talk) 17:20, 18 May 2015 (UTC)
I fully agree with TomT0m. part of (P361) must be used only to link two items of the same nature. significant event (P793) is more appropriate to link physical objects to events. Casper Tinan (talk) 20:28, 18 May 2015 (UTC)

@TomT0m: I was going to implement the reading of this data in a template (in it.wiki we have already arbitrary access), but I have doubt. Now we have for example in Mount Ontake (Q1754806):

significant event      2014 Mount Ontake eruption
                       start time  27 September 2014

But AFAIK there is nothing that prevents a user to use instead:

significant event      volcanic eruption
                       start time  27 September 2014

It would be correct to use in this way? (I mean "volcanic eruption" instead of a dedicated item for an eruption). --Rotpunkt (talk) 12:15, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

@Rotpunkt: I think for consistency sake it's better if we try to limit the numbers of ways to express something. As there is items for some eruptions anyway, it's easier to keep only the item model. For data management we could have a query or a database pattern to detect the qualifier on event class pattern ... TomT0m (talk) 17:22, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
@TomT0m: Ok thanks, so everytime I find (via Lua module) an eruption written in the second way what should I do? ignore it? --Rotpunkt (talk) 17:29, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
@Rotpunkt: Or put the page in an hidden category ? That's usually done when a bad or obsolete practice is detected by template ... Then we should clean it, by hand or by bot. TomT0m (talk) 17:33, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
@TomT0m: Ok, thanks again! --Rotpunkt (talk) 18:20, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

@TomT0m, Rotpunkt, Casper Tinan, ValterVB, Pigsonthewing, Paolobon140: Can we close this proposal as not done ? Snipre (talk) 13:16, 22 June 2015 (UTC)
