It depends - if you want to do a "quick search for something" then an
equivalent to overpass turbo might be an option, but in the real world what
you'd _actually_ want to do is a local database query.  Unfortunately that
side of things seems to be completely missing (or at least very
well-hidden) - wikidata seems to be quite immature in that respect.
Where's the "switch2osm" for wikidata?  Where's the "osm2pgsql" or
"osmosis"?  Sure I can download 20Gb of gzipped JSON from
https://dumps.wikimedia.org/wikidatawiki/entities/20170925/ and try and
write some sort of parser based on https://www.mediawiki.org/
wiki/Wikibase/DataModel/JSON , but this seems very much like going back to
banging the rocks together (and no, a third-party query interface that
depends on an external network connection such as
https://query.wikidata.org/ or anything else isn't a better option).

We used this library to process the dump and then we add the results in



What would the requirement of a wikidata2pgsql be?
