Wikimedia Commons, the media repository for the Wikimedia projects, now holds multilingual structured data about the media files it stores. However, it also still stores that information in text/template form on the file pages.
This project will investigate and implement methods of displaying structured data in file pages, and how to migrate information currently stored in file pages to structured data. To do this, it will build on https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Structured_Data, https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Template:Geograph_from_structured_data, and similar templates. It may also involve Python/pywikibot bot tasks.
Knowledge of Lua is an advantage, although it can be learnt during the project. Similar with Python.

- Convert some file pages to use the existing structured data templates manually
- As above, but using a Python script
- Expanding an existing template to support additional Wikidata properties
