Wikidatathe free knowledge base that anyone can edit – is a new Wikimedia Foundation (WMF) hosted and maintained project, founded 2012.

Wikimedia Wikidata aims to create a free knowledge-base about the world that can be read and edited by humans and machines alike. It will provide data, collectively known as 'wikidata' in all the languages of the Wikimedia projects, and allow for the central access to data in a similar vein as Wikimedia Commons does for multimedia files. Wikimedia Wikidata uses a dual licensing scheme: "All structured data from the main and property namespace is available under the Creative Commons Public Domain Dedication CC0 License; text in the other namespaces is available under the Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike 3.0 License".

Prior to its WMF rollout, wikidata was originaly used extensively by OmegaWiki.

The Wikimedia Foundation (WMF), founded 20 June 2003, is the non-profit organization responsible for a very large number (over 850 in total) of very active wikis, grouped together and known as 'projects'; as well as the wiki engine software initially developed for them known as MediaWiki. The Foundations' wiki projects include Wikipedia (encyclopedias), Wiktionary (dictionary and thesaurus), Wikiquote (quotations), Wikibooks (open content textbooks), Wikinews (news source), Wikisource (free content primary and secondary source texts), Wikispecies (a free species directory), and many others as listed below. Most of these projects have separate wiki versions written in many different languages. There is also the Wikimedia Commons (for images, videos and other media files that can be used by all the Wikimedia projects), Wikidata (central space for data used on all WMF projects), and the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki (for issues common to all Wikimedia projects). Its most recent project, Wikivoyage (a 'travelpedia'), was inducted to WMF in late 2012.

Wikimedia Foundation is a member of the Open Source Initiative.
