WikiDragon

The Neo4Wikipedia module was developed in order to make Wikipedia accessible as a linguistical resource for present-day language corpora. Neo4Wikipedia supports local, high-quality, memory-efficient representations of any number of versions of Wikipedia in a single database. The WikiDragon API [1], developed specifically for this purpose, creates and stores Wikipedia-releases in a Neo4J-based graph database. The WikiDragon API makes it possible to access, with full-text search, all revisions of wiki pages, their meta-data, and associated link- and category-structure. The data processed by the WikiDragon API undergoes a stochastic network analysis [2, 3].
