♻️ Biohackathon: report on reviewing Wikidata subsetting methods

16 March 2022 @ 20:40 21:30 UTC

♻️ This event is part of the Wikidata Data Reuse Days 2022.

Often Wikidata is too big to handle. Through a sequence of biohackathons we have been reviewing methods to extract subsets from Wikidata to facilitate downstream reuse. We have identified a set of tools and would like to report back on our intermediate results. We will address the different applicable file formats. Natively, Wikidata data is stored in json, but it is also available as RDF through for example the Wikidata Query Service. Different subsetting methods use either or both of those formats as input and output. We will also address the way how to define the subset. This can be a JSON file or a Shape Expression.
