Wikipedia, Wikidata

This tag is best used with subtags for Wikipedia and/or Wikidata identifiers, where available. For example:

This avoids problems stemming from ambiguous names or multiple possible spellings of a name. It also lets us link to the Wikipedia article about the namesake, and enables applications to access data from external databases (e.g. "find all streets named after dead poets").

(Do not use wikipedia=en:RAF_Calshot nor wikidata=Q7275214 in such cases.)
