What is this?
Wikimedia Commons holds a lot of data about the files it hosts. Structuring this data more and making it machine-readable would have many benefits. The structured data project is an effort to make this happen. In early 2017, this project was funded by the Sloan Foundation, with a $3 million grant. For more information about the grant, see the documentation here.
Impact on Commons
The impact on Commons is to support the use of machine-readable data to store and retrieve information for images and media files on Wikimedia Commons and other sites, so they are easier to view, search, edit, curate, use and re-use.
