Barack Obama GeneaWiki, 1 year later

GeneaWiki is a tool created by Magnus Manske to visualize the family of a person using data pulled from Wikidata.

I used the GeneaWiki tool as an example use of Wikidata in a presentation a year ago (2014) and below you can see the screenshot I took from it. It shows 10 people in Barack Obamas family tree / web.

GenaWiki Q76 2014

 

When creating a new presentation this year (2015) I went back to GeneaWiki to take another screenshot and this is what I found!

GenaWiki Q76 2015

Around 30 people now! :)

Yay, more data!

  1. Thanks for the progress report. Your article has no link to GeniaWiki, it took me a while to find it, eventually I got it from a Gigaom article. I think Barack Obama is https://tools.wmflabs.org/magnus-toolserver/ts2/geneawiki/?q=Q76 BTW, the sample Bach link https://tools.wmflabs.org/magnus-toolserver/ts2/geneawiki/?q=Q1339 display flickers like crazy for 20 seconds in Firefox.
