What is a gallery?
A gallery is a display format. It shows items arranged in a row or a collection. The item can be represented by an image, but it does not always have an image.
The gallery can be shown together with a timeline or a map or both.
The gallery can represent for example
- People (individuals)
- Organisations and groups. Companies (shops, restaurants, businesses)– families/households – crews – teams
The items are shown based on linked Wikidata items. Additional items can be shown following links via related Wikipedia categories for validating and importing to Wikidata.
