About the ISA tool[edit]

This campaign runs via the ISA tool, a new, simple tool to add multilingual structured data (powered by Wikidata) to files on Wikimedia Commons. It is beginner friendly!

ISA is a multilingual, mobile-first tool, that makes it easy for people to add 'micro-contributions' in the form of structured data (descriptions, captions, tags, etc.), powered by Wikidata, to images that have been contributed to Wikimedia Commons.

Anyone with a Wikimedia account can use ISA, and can create campaigns in it. You can organize small tagging 'competitions' with ISA, just like this one at WikidataCon 2019.

ISA is a collaboration between Wiki In Africa, Histropedia, and the Structured Data on Commons project. ISA is not only an acronym for Information Structured Acceleration, but is also a chiShona language word for 'put' or 'place'.
