Several components can ideally display content from sources across the web. The goal is to make available tools to enrich Wikimedia projects with then. Possible scenarios include

For images

  • Find PD or openly licensed images for a topic in different image repositories, based on all the available data in Wikidata (labels in different languages, aliases, time, location, authority data, other related information)
  • Match metadata fields to Wikidata or SDC properties.
  • Instantly save image metadata without reconciliation as text. Provide opportunities to associate them with Wikidata items.
  • Save and share metadata field mappings for later use or for use by others.
  • Detect similar images in different repositories
  • Compare and consolidate metadata from different sources.
  • Store metadata statement sources and create data provenance based on that.
  • Manage copyright status for images based on information about creators.

Search criteria for different media types

Images

Image search is ideally based on

  • Item label in the current language > must be changed to read the most suitable label.
  • Native label
  • Aliases > Which languages
  • Item location > must be made more contextual
  • Item date

Digitized maps

  • Date
  • Names of historical administrative entities
  • Zoom level / scale
