What are Types? Types
Attribution namespaces are Used to describe a namespace for which attribution must be provided. If a topic has a key in this namespace, an attribution message is displayed in the freebase client.
Attribution templates provide the attribution text that should be displayed when attribution is required.
|Data Project Type||/dataworld/data_project_type||0||-||
'Data Project Type' is used as modifier on 'Data Project'. This type and its topics are typically used by the Data team to manage their activities.
|Data Task Category||/dataworld/data_task_category||0||-|
|Data Task Status||/dataworld/data_task_status||0||-|
A data tool is a low-level tool used to write, modify, or monitor data in Freebase. High-level applications using Freebase data may be better represented as Freebase Applications.
Indicates that a property or namespace is stored in an external repository.
Use this type to make an assertion that, in no case, should one topic have two or more particular types applied to it. These assertions can be used by others to detect topics that need to be split or that were incorrectly conflated or merge, for example.
'Information Source' is a type primarily used by the data team to identify the source of data for imports. It may ultimately be expanded into a broader category and use.
|Mass Data Load||/dataworld/mass_data_load||0||-||
Co-type a Mass Data Operation topic with this type to advertise it in the News Feeds (not yet implemented.) Be sure to add an image, description and an estimated primitive count so that they can be shown in the newsfeed.
|Mass Data Operation||/dataworld/mass_data_operation||10||-||
'Mass Data Operation' tracks the large scale data tasks carried out by the data team.
A type where dead properties can be resurrected to, and then promptly killed again. The name is homage to Stephen King's Pet Sematary. This type should not have any instances of it.
Protected namespaces contain metadata about non-public Metaweb datastores and data processing machinery.
Provenance is a co-type on /type/attribution nodes that gives the Mass Data Operation and Information Source for the related data.
|Public type schema change||/dataworld/public_type_schema_change||3||-|
Any piece of software used in a Mass Data Operation in Freebase.
[Depreciated] Kind of project that is associated with the types being worked upon.
|User Reversion Operation||/dataworld/user_reversion_operation||3||-|
What are Mediators? Mediators
'Data Project' is typically used by the Data team to manage their activities. Note: this is a compound value type, which means it is typically not a named topic but instead is referenced by properties in other topics.
|Do Not Merge Mediator||/dataworld/do_not_merge_mediator||1||-||
Mediator for the relationship between objects that should not be merged.
|Property Value Assignment||/dataworld/property_value_assignment||4||-|
|Type Project Mediator||/dataworld/type_project_mediator||3||-||
[Depreciated] Mediator for the relationship between type project and the types under active development.
