Wikidata Geodata Competition for May 2024
, Ali Smith.

Coordinate Me 2024 is an International Wikidata competition for content with geodata, from towns and hospitals to public art and natural monuments. For the month of May, the goal is to improve or create Wikidata items with a coordinate location (P625) property.

Join the competition immediately or explore the tools and resources specific to Australia.

There is a Dashboard for Australia that we encourage you to enrol in with your Wikimedia user account. Once enrolled, your edits to Wikidata items with a coordinate location (P625) are automatically tracked in the Dashboard.

This competition is organised by Wikimedia Austria, and supported by 11 Wikimedia affiliates and User Groups.

The competition starts on 1 May 2024 and ends on 31 May 2024.

New to Wikidata?

Wikidata is a free and open knowledge base that can be read and edited by humans and machines. Launched in 2012, it acts as central storage for the structured data of its Wikimedia sister projects, including Wikipedia, Wikivoyage, Wiktionary, Wikisource, and others.

If you are new to Wikidata here are tutorials and tools to get started.

  • Introduction to Wikidata
  • Wikimedia Australia help pages on Wikidata
  • Wikishoot Me! is a map of Wikidata items that also displays georeferenced images from Wikimedia Commons. Enables the creation of new items based on those images.
