DBpedia is a crowd-sourced community effort to extract structured information from Wikipedia and make this information available on the Web. DBpedia allows you to ask sophisticated queries against Wikipedia, and to link the different data sets on the Web to Wikipedia data. We hope that DBpedia will make it easier for the huge amount of information in Wikipedia to be used in some new interesting ways. Furthermore, it might inspire new mechanisms for navigating, linking, and improving the encyclopedia itself.
With DBpedia Mappings Wiki people can help enhance the information in DBpedia. The DBpedia Extraction Framework uses the mappings defined here to homogenize information extracted from Wikipedia before generating structured information in RDF.
Mappings can be written for a variety of languages, connecting multiligual information to a language-independent unified ontology schema (language-specific labels can be provided there).
