In WDM mode you can search Wikidata items, (lexemes) words and properties.

In browser mode you can search with search engine startpage.

In db mode you can search and update entries.Those entries can be exported as xml file.

What is Wikidata?

[edit | edit source]

Wikidata is the central place for all Wikipedia and Wikimedia information.

There is nearly nothing on earth which is not referenced in Wikidata. Items / tags which are missing can be added or updated there according to the rules.

Future usage

[edit | edit source]

WDM (Wikidata Map) will enrich this data further and will get further functions for coding and translation.

Our WDM server is currently located in Europe. Normally your queries do not leave traces besides at the Wikidata server and in our logs.
