[[ https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Tabular_Data | Tabular Data ]] is now available on Wikimedia project. As part of the Q2 goals we want to announce its availability to use in projects.
* @Yurik will write up a technical description of the feature for the wikitech-l mailing list
* @CKoerner_WMF will draft a blog post and work with the team and Comms for publishing
Points to cover:
* What is this new feature?
* How do I use it?
** This is arguably a more technical feature, so discuss its use in templates and lua modules
* How is it separate from Wikidata?
* Examples of uses
** An interactive weather history viewer - try selecting ranges at the bottom, switch to Fahrenheit, or mouse over for info. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Yurik/Weather_barchart
** This is a simple historical heatmap: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Yurik/Weather_heatmap
** And the same data shown as a well established enwiki climate table using a lua script: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Yurik/WeatherDemo
** All above pages are generated from a single data page on Commons: https://commons.wikimedia.org/…/Data:Weat…/New_York_City.tab
If the response is strong we might even write up a Village Pump (Technical where available) post to share.
The related Maps Data functionality will be mentioned, but highlighted in a future communication.
