[feature request] allow calculated properties, derived properties
Open, MediumPublic

Description

For easy retrieval, it could be helpful to define calculated properties, i.e. properties whose value are derived from one or several other properties.

Support could be limited to or should include also the SPARQL endpoint. Given increased functionalities of WQS, this may not be needed. On the other hand, it could make it easier to build queries for users.

This idea seems very similar to my T167521 proposal.

The wikidata property proposal https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Property_proposal/coordinate_location_GCJ02 would depend on this property datatype.
