Wikigrid is a test site (supported by Wikimedia Germany) designed to explore the potentials of Semantic MediaWiki Software in an attempt to establish a new Wikimedia resource.
Should the experiment prove successfull this site should become a new - international - resource of bibliographical and archival information, a resource readers should not only be able to consult, but also to modify according to their needs and to address with questions of their particular research interests.
Visit the G:Construction site to join our internal debates (we are afraid a lot of German is spoken there at the moment, yet we are looking forward to becoming a more international crew devoted to this project).
For more information tour through the "Quick Links" on this page. Well, yes, and of course: Open an account if you feel intrigued. We would be too happy if this project could work for you - and it would be good to learn what it should be able to do in that case. Inspire us on our Best wishes page,
...best wishes, Olaf Simons ·
DBpedia is a community effort to extract structured information from Wikipedia and to make this information available on the Web. DBpedia allows you to ask sophisticated queries against Wikipedia, and to link other data sets on the Web to Wikipedia data. We hope this will make it easier for the amazing amount of information in Wikipedia to be used in new and interesting ways, and that it might inspire new mechanisms for navigating, linking and improving the encyclopaedia itself. ·
