Abstract: 
The W3C Generating RDF from Tabular Data on the Web Recommendation provides a mechanism for mapping CSV-formatted data to any RDF graph model. Since the Wikibase data model on which Wikidata is built can be expressed as RDF, this Recommendation can be used to document tabular snapshots of parts of the Wikidata knowledge graph in a simple form that is easy for humans and applications to read. Those snapshots can be used to document how subgraphs of Wikidata have changed over time and can be compared with the current state of Wikidata using its Query Service to detect vandalism and value added through community contributions.
