Abstract & description[edit source]

Abstract[edit source]

Annual meeting of Wikimedians interested in Wikimedia Commons categories and structured data for Commons

Description[edit source]

Wikimedia Commons hosts a great treasure of media files about almost any topic imaginable. But currently most of these are almost invisible due to a lack of categorization or description. The Commons Categorizer community aims to make every file visible and usable to anyone. Since 2016 ist has been a tradition for this community to meet during Wikimania and discuss the practice and future of Wikimedia Commons.

The session is of course open to anyone interested in the topic. Following a brief update on Structured Data for Commons, participants are invited to share experiences (tools, structures, workflows, etc.) about the practice of categories and structured data on Wikimedia Commons.
