Freebase - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Freebase - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Freebase is a large collaborative knowledge base consisting of metadata composed mainly by its community members. It is an online collection of structured.

Freebase is planning formal mappings of some of their types to established ontologies like FOAF, though this is not a priority.

Freebase runs on a database infrastructure created in-house by Metaweb that uses a graph model. This means that instead of using tables and keys to define data structures, Freebase defines its data structure as a set of nodes and a set of links that establish relationships between the nodes. Because its data structure is non-hierarchical, Freebase can model much more complex relationships between individual elements than a conventional database, and is open for users to enter new objects and relationships into the underlying graph.

Documentation for the Freebase APIs. Tap into the power of Google's Knowledge Graph with Freebase data. Freebase is a free, knowledge.

The Topic API allows you to get all the facts for an entity in JSON or RDF.

Read our API documentation to see how easy it is to build apps with Freebase.

Use the Search Widget to easily lookup and disambiguate entities in your application.

Freebase contains tens of millions of topics, thousands of types, and tens of thousands of properties. By comparison, English Wikipedia has over 4 million articles. Each of the topics in Freebase is linked to other related topics and annotated with important properties like movie genres and people's dates of birth. There are over a billion such facts or relations that make up the graph and they're all available for free through the APIs or to download from our weekly data dumps.

Every fact and entity is available as an RDF Dump which makes it easy to analyze all of Freebase on your own computer.

Data Dumps - Freebase API Google Developers

Data Dumps are a downloadable version of the data in Freebase. They constitute a snapshot of the data stored in Freebase and the Schema that structures it.

Freebase Data Dumps are provided free of charge for any purpose with regular updates by Google. They are distributed, like Freebase itself, under the Creative Commons Attribution (aka CC-BY) and use is subject to the Terms of Service. The Freebase/Wikidata ID mappings are provided under CC0 and can be used without restrictions.

If you're writing your own code to parse the RDF dumps its often more efficient to read directly from GZip file rather than extracting the data first and then processing the uncompressed data.

Topic descriptions often contain newlines.
