This workshop will build on experience gained by participants in Part I of the series (Using Wikidata to capture and share information about people in paleontology) to explore the possibility of using Wikidata to curate community knowledge about paleontological collecting sites. Participants will begin by defining our information needs regarding paleontological collecting sites, including flagging aspects of the data that may be problematic to share publicly. We will then assess how these information needs could, or could not, fit into a Wikidata model. We will use a predetermined set of representative paleo collecting sites as test data for this workshop.
