Abstract (up to 300 words to describe your proposal)

Monumental is a web application created as a part of Connected Open Heritage project by Wikimedia Sweden. App displays information about cultural heritage monuments based on data gathered on Wikidata, Wikipedia and Wikimedia Commons. The talk will give an overview of application features and use cases, including browsing data, validating, correcting and adding missing information.

In this talk I want to show, that thanks to versatility of Wikidata, displaying data like list of heritage monuments in Barcelona is easier than never before. And what is more: I can be rewritten in the future to show artworks, memorials or landscape parks. This kind of tool can be really useful for current and future GLAM partners interested in sharing their resources with Wikidata.

What will attendees take away from this session?
  • Learn about Monumental -- history, features and what is planned
  • Learn about how cultural heritage monuments can be described on Wikidata, with prominent examples
