Abstract[edit source]

Important: the talk will be presented in Taiwanese Hokkien

In the early days, Wikidata's main purpose is dealing with crosslink Wikipedia articles to different language versions of Wikipedia. Now due to the community effect, Wikidata has expanded its capacity to add more statements and links to more third-party databases, and not only just links to Wikipedia articles. I will talk about the Wikidata experience in Taiwan of procession datasets from the Taiwan government's open data platform, and crowd-sourcing platform, especially emphasis on working with the OpenStreetMap Taiwan community.

注意:演講sī用臺灣台語來講 Tī 早期ê時陣,Wikidata主要處理WIkipedia迒語言連結,毋過這馬因為社群拍拚勞力,Wikidata變khah大範圍較闊,加添koh-khah濟ê聲稱kah第三方資料庫ê連結,m̄-sī kan-na Wikipedia 文章 niā-niā。我ē分享Wikidata tī-teh臺灣處理臺灣政府ê開放資料平台ê資料集kah群眾共編ê資料集ê經驗,尤其 sī Wikidata kah OpenStreetMap 臺灣社群合作的事項。

Important: the talk will be presented in Taiwanese Hokkien

I hope the attendees will have some basic knowledge of both Wikidata and OpenStreetMap. In the early days of Wikidata, it is only used for crosslinking between language versions of Wikipedia. Nowadays Wikidata is expanding, including more and more third-party database IDs and links. I will talk about Taiwan's experience of dealing with rivers, villages, schools, NSI-index, and even cemetery dataset

這場演講希望 tuì Wikidata kah OpenStreetMap 攏 ū 小可仔了解 ê 人來聽,以早社群 kan-na 用 Wikidata 處理 Wikipedia 迒語言連結,毋過 Wikidata 擴大影響,變成收錄真濟第三方資料庫編號kah連結。我 ē tuì 臺灣社群處理溪流、村里、學校、NSI-index,甚至 sī 墓仔埔資料,一个一个講清楚,說分明。
