We present OD2WD, a semi-automatic pattern-based framework for populating the Wikidata knowledge graph with (originally tabular) data from Open Data portals. The motivation is twofold. One, our framework can further enrich Wikidata as a central RDF-oriented knowledge graph with a large amount of data coming from public or government sources. Two, our framework can help the discovery of data from such Open Data portals and its integration with Linked Data without forcing the Open Data portals to provide Linked Data infrastructure by themselves, as the latter may not always be feasible due to various technical, budgetary, or policy reasons. Throughout the transformation process, we identify several reengineering and alignment patterns. We implement the framework as an online service and API accessible at http://od2wd.id, currently tailored for three Indonesian Open Data portals: Satu Data Indonesia, Jakarta Open Data, and Bandung Open Data.
