Additional info for HABS files.[edit]

Thanks for working on this, and sorry if this is a little bit late to be useful feedback, but for whatever it's worth... there is additional useful information on the LOC site page for a HABS survey that doesn't appear on the pages of the individual images. Quick example is this edit. Seems like it might be worth including in future uploads (possibly worth automated adding to existing ones?). --jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 05:51, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the example, I'll investigate. It is possible to re-do the uploads if new information can be 'scraped' for it. One issue with the LoC catalogue was inconsistency in which fields were available, this might have been the cause of missing this one. I'm around half way through on the "scraping" side of things, which is slightly in advance of when the uploads happen. -- (talk) 06:05, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
I completely sympathize with your experience of the wonkiness of the LoC site, don't even get me started... but best of luck anyway! :P --jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 06:50, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Error when uploading some files with GWToolset[edit]

Dear Fæ. I noticed than some files were not uploaded successfully using GWToolset (only the pages of them were created). Don't forget to upload them and/or report a possible error in the tool. --Amitie 10g (talk) 03:26, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

These are unlikely to be an error in the tool. A low number of uploads (something like 0.1%, it varies) suffer from the connection being dropped during upload, at some point on the WMF server side of things. If you are uploading 200,000 images, it turns out that this can be a bit of a headache to fix, though it can be planned for as part of necessary post-upload housekeeping.
This particular example fix. ✓ Done -- (talk) 08:03, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
Also I noticed than various huge TIFF files uploaded from the project appears to be corrupted. Have you some time to to find them and reupload? I can have some time to find them in New uploads page. --Amitie 10g (talk) 20:41, 17 July 2014 (UTC)
If you list a few I'll take a look.
If the file appears corrupted (not just a TIFF > 50 MP), please add Images uploaded by Fæ (reload needed). I should be able to sort out an automated re-upload. -- (talk) 06:16, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

Another HABS thought: temp (or not) cats per survey.[edit]

Looking at the >1k files that are in the base category:Los Angeles, California, the thought of trying to diffuse all with available tools is a little daunting. Probably what I'll end up doing is adding them to cats named after the survey (HABS CAL,19-LOSAN,5 etc.) via search+hotcat, then operating on those bite-sized chunks to remove them from the L.A. category with VFC, and commence categorization from there. Do you suppose it might be better to take this approach during upload, and then tag the survey cat with a general placename, rather than tagging the individual files? It might make for a much easier time for the people sorting them all out... (and nice work on the scraping enhancements, btw!) --jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 23:43, 17 July 2014 (UTC)

In fact, the more I think about it, the more it makes sense to maintain the surveys as the objects that they are, in their own persistent categories. Might even make sense to grab the PDF files, too. --jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 00:03, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm less sure about this as renaming categories is a drag. The new search features on Commons actually make it easy to produce a list of all files matching the survey number without creating a temporary category. I have just manually created Kate Chopin House, and have a script that is then automatically populating it with HABS uploads one the first file from HABS is added to it (so long at the category uses {{NRHP}}). This is the sort of category name we really want, the nearest I could make automatically would be the group parent title of "Kate Chopin House, State Highway 495, Cloutierville, Natchitoches Parish, LA" which is understandable English but still a bit naff.
I'll have a think about creating a backlog of "categories wanted" along with the matching search results. -- (talk) 06:24, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
I'm not really hung up on there being any categories named for the surveys, so much as there being some containment of the uploaded images, rather than all being dumped into a general category, by whatever means makes sense to you. Bulk adding files to categories is really easy with cat-a-lot; getting 500 of them out of a category already backlogged with 800 or so other images is much harder, as they have to be manually selected (no regex-select on cat-a-lot, alas). In simplest terms, probably almost anything is better than tagging them all with an already-overpopulated general category, in my opinion. As long as that doesn't happen, then, as you say, grouping them via search for adding further cats is pretty simple for most people using the available tools. Hope that makes sense. --jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 06:58, 18 July 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I've started populating a backlog list at Commons:Batch uploading/Library of Congress/HABS. Experimental, so don't rely on it yet... -- (talk) 07:10, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

I am reworking the script for this report as there are some images within the same NRHP number being added to different categories, 4 so far: ['84003872', '82004845', '74000424', '76000177']. The extra jiggery-pokery will be to test if suggested categories are parents/grandparents of each other and then pick the one lowest in the hierarchy, plus move any in the parent/grandparent to the better category. Busy with RL stuff today, so parking and returning to this later... -- (talk) 11:26, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Looks pretty good now, even though it is slow (several hours to get through 5,000 NRHP identified images). ✓ Done -- (talk) 15:13, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
That's some interesting magic. Do you have a rough idea of what proportion of HABS subjects are actually on the NRHP? I know the former predates the latter, but no clue as to how closely aligned they may be... --jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 19:04, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
I have been guessing 5% to 10% but it's a wild guess. Once the upload is finished, a catscan report will be able to give the numbers. As of this moment there are 10,091 images out of nearly 130,000 uploads, however this represents a minimum ratio as the NRHP template is being retrospectively added to a large number of past uploads (new uploads should have this included already). -- (talk) 15:19, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

Wrong category: minerals[edit]

You made a batch upload on July 4 that incorrectly categorized many files. They are categorized as minerals when they should all have been in Category:Lassen Volcanic National Park and its subcategories. Granted that the park is close to Mineral, California, but none of the images display minerals, the naturally occurring substances and the subject of the category they are in. Will you be correcting these miscategorizations in the near future? 23:15, 18 July 2014 (UTC)

If you give me an example file, I can add it to the 'housekeeping' jobs. There are several USA locations that have tripped up category identification, though several are essentially sorting themselves out for different reasons. -- (talk) 04:29, 19 July 2014 (UTC)

Corrected examples: 10:58, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
Okay, I have fixed these as a one-off with VFC and I have added the place "Mineral" as a special exception to avoiding re-touching whatever RussBot does (which was moving Mineral to Minerals). -- (talk) 11:16, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
Still the wrong category. Every one of those files should be in Category:Lassen Volcanic National Park or its subcategories, as I said above. The name "Lassen Volcanic National Park" is in every file name. Can you actually fix them or shall I do it by hand? 11:48, 19 July 2014 (UTC)
