This is a belated post about the Wikibase docker images that I recently created for the Wikidata 5th birthday. You can find the various images on docker hub and matching Dockerfiles on github. These images combined allow you to quickly create docker containers for Wikibase backed by MySQL and with a SPARQL query service running alongside updating live from the Wikibase install.
A setup was demoed at the first Wikidatacon event in Berlin on the 29th of October 2017 and can be seen at roughly 41:10 in the demo of presents video which can be seen below.
I has been another 5 months since my last post about the Wikidata maps, and again some areas of the world have lit up. Since my last post at least 9 noticeable areas have appeared with many new items containing coordinate locations. These include Afghanistan, Angola, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Burundi, Lebanon, Lithuania, Macedonia, South Sudan and Syria.
The difference map below was generated using Resemble.js. The pink areas show areas of difference between the two maps from April and October 2016.
Geospatial search is up and running for the Wikidata Query Service! This allows you to search for items with coordinates that are located within a certain radius or within a bounding box.
Along side the the map that can be used to display results for the query service this really is a great tool for quickly visualizing coverage.
