Subject: Announcing the release of the Wikidata Query Service

The Discovery Department at the Wikimedia Foundation is pleased to announce
the release of the Wikidata Query Service
<>! You can find the
interface for the service at

The Wikidata Query Service is designed to let users run queries on the data
contained in Wikidata. The service uses SPARQL
<> as the query language. You can see
some example queries in the user manual

Right now, the service is still in beta. This means that our goal
to monitor of the service usage and collect feedback about what people
think should be next. To do that, we've created the Wikidata Query Service
dashboard <> to track usage of the
service, and we're in the process
<> of setting up a feedback
mechanism for users of the service. Once we've got monitored the usage of
the service for a while and got user feedback, we'll decide on what's next
for development of the service.

If you have any feedback, suggestions, or comments, please do send an email
to the Discovery Department's public mailing list,
