Introduction to Wikimedia Commons and Structured data
On June 25, 2019, a workshop was held in Jakarta to introduce Wikimedia Commons and how to contribute to Commons in a best way. This was an initiative of GLAM 2018 project by Wikimedia Indonesia together with Creative Commons Indonesia. The workshop was participated by nine participants who are new to this project.
The workshop was divided into 3 parts: (1) introduction to Wikimedia Commons and licenses accepted in Commons, (2) introduction to Structured data on Commons, and (3) getting started to the most useful Commons gadgets to organize files.
Hilman Fathoni (Creative Commons Indonesia) began the session by introducing Wikimedia Commons as one of the free-licensed media repositories on the internet, alongside archive.org, etc. He then introduced Creative Commons ("CC"), OGL, and GNU as licenses that are often used by the licensor to their files and media published to Commons. Some Creative Commons rights are also explained, including CC BY and CC BY-SA which are standard free licenses used in Commons.
Rachmat Wahidi (Wikimedia Indonesia) continued the session with an explanation of Structured data on Commons, by utilizing multilingual caption and depict features. Examples of its use can be seen in File:Tora the Cat, Sakaiminato, Tottori Prefecture, November 2012.jpg which has been equipped with English and Indonesian captions, and depiction of house cat (Q146) and also equipped with "color" and "use" qualifiers.
