Heritage in Flanders and crowd-sourced projects

Belgium’s Docs Heritage in Flanders and crowd-sourced projects

This project aims to give guidelines on how to create a database of heritage items in Flanders and elsewhere, based on crowdsourcing and using OpenStreetMap, Wikipedia, Wikimedia Commons and Wikidata.

The location and the floor plan of the heritage item, together with its name and some basic information can be put in OpenStreetMap.

An article describing the origin and history of the item goes into Wikipedia. Photos, 3D-models, a movie taken with a drone are placed in Wikimedia Commons.

Lastly, a summary of the above information can be put in machine-readable format into Wikidata.
