Wikidata is a free and open knowledge base that can be read and edited by both humans and machines. Wikidata acts as central storage for the structured data of its Wikimedia sister projects including Wikipedia, Wikivoyage, Wikisource, and others. Wikidata also provides support to many other sites and services beyond just Wikimedia projects!
Wikidata is the youngest of all Wikimedia projects, and has the potential to emerge as one of the most powerful tools for encyclopedic data management in any language.
