Human readable link to Wikidata's page about the model/family of the feature.

Pages for model series, model families, model group, submodels, variant, model type etc all can be linked.

Primary point of this tag is that it allows removal of invalid wikidata=* links without removing what original mapper added, by retagging them into model:wikidata=*.


Comparison with model:wikipedia=* tag

One may also add model:wikipedia=* for tag that is equivalent in function. It adds link that is more likely to be changing but is human readable as its tag value. There may be special support to display model:wikidata=* tag in more readable form, it requires access to Wikidata database to get data from )

Comparison with wikidata tag

There is wikidata=* tag that can be used to provides a link to Wikidata's page about the specific feature. Note that it is supposed to be used in cases where Wikidata article is specifically about a given object. For example adding wikidata=Q10884 [1] is never correct as it is not a page about a specific tree. In the same way adding wikidata=Q219629 [2] to helicopter is not correct, because it is not an article about a specific produced helicopter.

In cases where someone want to add link to Wikipedia page about model of supermarket using model:wikidata=Q219629 is acceptable, as it is not incorrect.

In cases where there is a Wikidata page about specific aircraft, truck, locomotive, ship etc. it is fine to link it in wikidata=*
