The Global Economic Map is a Wikidata project. The goal is to create a standardized economic article (data set) for every country, region and city in the world. The purpose is to systematically organize and centralize economic data from various databases into a single location. This model can be replicated for other scientific fields helping Wikidata meet its potential. The purpose of this presentation is to inspire new ways of utilizing Wikidata.
