DBpedia chapters

The DBpedia community works hard to localize and internationalize DBpedia and support the extraction of non-English Wikipedia editions as well as build a data community around a certain language, region or special interest. At the moment, DBpedia has around 20 language chapters, which are concerned with improving the extraction of data from language-specific Wikipedia versions. The chapters are part of the DBpedia executives and have taken on responsibility to contribute to the infrastructure of DBpedia. DBpedia in Dutch is the first chapter which formalized an official DBpedia Chapter consortium.

Dimitris Kontokostas

For further chapter support, the DBpedia Association plans to establish a position to keep things running smoothly. In case you are interested to support the DBpedia team let us know and apply here.

How to start a DBpedia chapter?

We are looking for volunteers to support the creation of regional, language-specific and domain-specific chapters. At the moment DBpedia has around 20 language chapters, that are concerned with improving the extraction of data from language-specific Wikipedia versions. For example you can look at the Spanish DBpedia or the Dutch DBpedia.

In addition, we will support interested DBpedians to set up:

  • more language chapters

  • regional chapters, e.g. for cities or individual countries

  • domain chapters, e.g. for law, medicine, media and science

The Dutch Chapter has provided a Sample DBpedia Chapter Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to use as a template for further chapters.

If you like what our project does but are still new to DBpedia there is a paper that can help you started:
