The Display precision of property is a special property in Semantic MediaWiki with a built-in meaning: it adds the possibility to specify a display precision for numeric datatypes, i.e. datatype "Quantity"Holds values that describe quantities, containing both a number and a unit, datatype "Temperature"Holds temperature values (similar to type Quantity) and datatype "Number"Holds integer and decimal numbers, with an optional exponent. It was introduced starting with Semantic MediaWiki 2.4.0Released on 9 July 2016 and compatible with MW 1.19.0 - 1.27.x..1

See the property page "Display precision of" to see which pages use this special property on this wiki.


The page of a property called "Has area" might contain:

[[Display precision of::2]]

This will set the display precision for the data values assigned to the respective property to two. Note that rounding applies, i.e. a data value of "123,4567" will be shown as "123,46".

Query printout precision[edit]

A printout precision denoted in an #ask query using -p<digit> will override a possible predetermined precision via the property page set by the "Display precision of" special property.2
