maybe you will find interesting this project:
"Match OSM entities with Wikidata items": http://osm.wikidata.link/
https://github.com/EdwardBetts/osm-wikidata
* One-to-one between OSM and Wikidata
* English language Wikipedia categories are used for matching
Example: Gibraltar https://osm.wikidata.link/candidates/1278736     Items
with no match found in OSM: 198 items

Best regards,
 Imre
