The project more specifically serves to coordinate the following activities:

  • the identification of relevant vocabularies for the description of datasets (such as DCAT or;
  • the implementation of such vocabularies on Wikidata;

  • the ingestion of metadata about relevant datasets into Wikidata;
  • the enhancement and completion of such data.


This project was launched in 2017 in order to provide guidance with regard to the description of datasets in the context of larger data ingestion projects in the context of the WikiProject Cultural heritage.
