It would be good to indicate the tools that help people understand the data and its structure. One tool that is unsurpassed is Reasanator. It provides at a glance understanding on items something that cannot be had in any other way. Thanks, GerardM (talk) 05:48, 1 December 2016 (UTC)


Did you really need to take over the old name, breaking all links, and to create yet another project with a confusingly similar name? --Nemo 08:32, 1 December 2016 (UTC)

Hi Nemo, the scope of the former WikiProject "Cultural heritage" did not correspond to its name, as it was exclusively about built heritage. Furthermore, there are three projects on built heritage that will need some coordination in my opinion and some overhauling of the project pages: The one about ingesting monuments data, the one about wikifying WLM, and the Connected Open Heritage Project run by Wikimedia Sweden. For now, I have listed them as "Related Projects" on Wikidata:WikiProject_Built_heritage. I think some housekeeping is needed once in a while if we want to involve more contributors in the tasks related to the ingestion of heritage data.

National Library of Wales[edit]

I just wanted to say that this looks like a great idea, and that i am happy to support this project in any way i can. The National Library of Wales has over 10,000 related Wikidata items and we are constantly looking to add more and expand existing items. We also have the worlds first Wikidata Visiting Scholar. Perhaps some of our work would make a good case study? Like others i am also having difficulty in getting community help with uploads, specifically where a bot is needed. I hope this project might help connect cultural institutions with community members who can help them share with Wikidata. Best Jason.nlw (talk) 08:58, 1 December 2016 (UTC)
