Provide support to the organizers of Suriname's first WLM around monument lists and Wikidata items.

Event Timeline

The monuments in the Paramaribo lists had (mostly) Wikidata items. What we have done includes:

  • Merging a number of duplicates where a monument had 1) an item created based on the list and 2) another item created based on the Wikipedia article. A number of monuments with Wikipedia articles were affected by this.
  • Linking a large number of Commons categories to appropriate Wikidata items.
  • Assigning WLM ID to the Wikidata items of the monuments, based on the "object ID" provided by the local heritage authority.
  • Creating / cleaning up items for the monuments in Lijst_van_monumenten_in_Suriname
  • Creating items for new monuments that were not in any of the lists, based on data kindly provided by the local heritage authority.
  • Creating a Wikidata structure for the competition which will enable adding SDC to the photos.

@Lokal_Profil has also provided some info on the technical aspects of categories etc needed to organize the photos in the competition.
