Use absolute URIs in DCAT-AP document
Open, LowPublic


The Wikidata dumps description in RDF given by DCAT-AP. Only refers to Wikimedia Foundation by name. I created a patch do use an additional URI.

Moreover there should be a link from the described dataset and Wikidata as project ( The data model is as following:

dcat:Catalog (list of Wikidata dumps)
dcat:Dataset (Wikidata dump of a specific date)
dcat:Distribution (particular dump file)

A dcat:Dataset could be connected to Wikidata URI via (edition or translation of) because each Wikidata dump is a published edition of Wikidata. Shall I create another pull request to implement this or is there a better way to model the connection?

@nichtich So I just spotted that this was never merged. I've updated your patch and made a companion patch for the config.

Feel free to make more patches for the other missing uris and I'll try to follow up on them more quickly.
