Wikidata is a Wikimedia project to create an open and collaborative database. It is for data what Wikimedia Commons is for media files: it centralizes access and management of structured data, such as interwiki references and statistical information. Wikidata contains data in all languages for which there are Wikimedia projects. It is also deployed on Wikimedia Commons (since September 2013).

Wikimedia Commons on Wikidata[edit]

Since September 23, 2013, a Commons page can be linked with a Wikidata item entry and display their interwiki links (but is not linked from the pages which are linked with interproject links from the Wikidata entry, as well as before Wikidata). However, this functionality doesn't reflect a relation between categories, articles and galleries of identic item yet, and doesn't allow to link the Commons category page from both together, from the articles and from the categories of the corresponding item (as well as before Wikidata).

Currently these Wikimedia Commons related properties are used or proposed on Wikidata:

Title ID Data type Description
Commons category P373 String name of the Wikimedia Commons category containing files related to this item (without the prefix "Category")
topic's main category P910 Item identifier for the Wikidata entry ("quasi-item") that contains links to the category on Commons and the category on each Wikipedia which is considered the main category for the concept
category's main topic P301 Item identifier for the Wikidata entry ("item") that contains links to the article on each Wikipedia which is considered the main article for the category. The identified item will also contain the link(s) to any related gallery page(s) on Commons.
Commons gallery P935 String name of the Wikimedia Commons gallery page related to this item
image P18 Commons media file an image depicting the subject (person, species, etc.); more specific properties should be used when more description is required, e.g. signature (P109), logo image (P154) and locator map image (P242)
