Historic American buildings survey[edit]

Hi, Fae. Good job getting us all the new images! I've been doing other work with images of historical places, so I'll look at these to see if I can help improve the categories. I've already done a few.

I found one image whose title and description are wrong. I can fix the description and move the image, but I thought I'd run it by you first. If nothing else, I didn't know if you'd want to correct the place where the title and description came from. The image is this one. It says it's a detail of a mosaic in a floor, but it's actually the interior of the dome in the building. You can compare it to other images in Category:San Mateo County History Museum to see.

So would you like me to do the fixes, or would you like to take care of it?

Regards. --Auntof6 (talk) 22:41, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

I'm a bit over-committed on Wikimania stuff. It would be great if you could take action to improve those that have obvious issues. -- (talk) 21:39, 6 August 2014 (UTC)
Sure thing. I moved this one. Is it OK to change the commented metadata, or would that mess up some sourcing info or anything? --Auntof6 (talk) 10:11, 9 August 2014 (UTC)
if you mean the invisible metadata then it is probably better to leave those comments as they are. The *visible* text in the main template are perfectly fine to change. Once changed, my housekeeping is likely to ignore the file though, on the presumption that if a human has reviewed it, it should not be reverted. -- (talk) 14:04, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
The HABS files in Category:Fort_Miller,_California could use some filemover attention, as well. They're designated as being in Marin County (probably confused with the Millerton there) but are actually related to the Millerton in Madera County... maybe @Auntof6: could take care of these, too? --jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 22:50, 23 August 2014 (UTC)
It looks like those have been taken care of. Am I missing something? --Auntof6 (talk) 00:15, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
The "Marin County" in the filenames (and the info, but I can do that) should be "Madera County", sorry for not making that clear enough. --jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 01:30, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Ah, got it! I've been so focused on categories that I didn't pay attention to your mention of "filemover" and I just looked at the categories. Stand by and I'll take care of these right now. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:10, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
OK, I did the moves. One of them didn't need moving because it didn't have "Marin" in the file name. If you want, I could use AWB to change the text. I'm just not sure whether it's OK to change every occurrence of "Marin" to "Madera", because I don't know if some need to be left as they are to match a source or something. --Auntof6 (talk) 04:22, 24 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! For now I changed it in the "depicted place" field, but left the title alone; If I get confirmation from LoC that it's being fixed on their end, I'll change that, too (if someone else doesn't in the meantime). --jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 20:19, 24 August 2014 (UTC)

HABS/HAER identifiers as sort keys?[edit]

As I was attempting to wrangle some of the 2,000+ files in Category:Los Angeles County, California , using a creaky mess of and duct tape, and grumbling over the lack of survey grouping that would make Cat-a-lot a viable option, I had this little thought: what about, instead of just adding

[[Category:Los Angeles County, California]]

to the files, doing something like

[[Category:Los Angeles County, California|HAER CAL,19-LOSAN,74]]

which would provide some grouping within category listings without the problems of creating a temporary category? Does that sound feasible? Smile fasdfdsfoiueire.svg --jnkyrdsprkl (talk) 05:44, 9 August 2014 (UTC)

With a couple of caveats, this is a good idea. I'll ponder how to implement it before restarting HABS housekeeping.
Doing a run with this. I'm still travelling, so this is a small experiment by laptop. See example. -- (talk) 06:15, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
✓ Done Now included in housekeeping and will gradually roll out to all files where another editor has not changed the location categories. -- (talk) 03:22, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

milim template other versions[edit]

Hi Fae, is it possible that you milim template will support other versions (like here)? Thx--Sanandros (talk) 16:48, 11 August 2014 (UTC)

It should do, thanks for highlighting it. I'll take a look at it probably tomorrow. Hopefully an easy tweak. -- (talk) 16:57, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
No Problem.--Sanandros (talk) 07:07, 12 August 2014 (UTC)
Not forgotten i hope to return to this forgotten,the week. (tablet editing!) I mean later this week. -- (talk) 13:59, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
Hi, {{milim}} is okay, you just need to use "other_versions" rather than "other version", this is in line with the standard information template. The example you linked to is actually a duplicate, so I have marked it as such and they should be merged. The reason for this was that the photograph was used on the DoD blog, which in the process changed the EXIF data, meaning the two images are not "digitally identical" even though they appear the same. -- (talk) 03:19, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Incomplete HAER files[edit]

Non-urgent business (and you've mentioned it's on hold for the moment): At least three of the HAER files appear to have been cut off mid-upload. I can only view the top parts of them in an external viewer, and they seem to be well under the 30MB range that complete photos usually have. I think there are a lot more, but here are the three I've caught already:

✓ Done
✓ Done
✓ Done

Contrast with File:AERIAL VIEW OF PEORIA LOCK AND DAM. LOOKING NORTH. - Illinois Waterway, Peoria Lock and Dam, 1071 Wesley Road, Creve Coeur, Tazewell County, IL HAER IL-164-B-30.tif and File:AERIAL VIEW OF PROJECT OFFICE. LOOKING SOUTHWEST. - Illinois Waterway, Project Office, 257 Grant Street, Peoria, Peoria County, IL HAER IL-164-C-15.tif, which are complete. (P.S.: Should all these HABS/HAER things be put on a separate talk page for later, so they don't get in the way of other talk for now?) --Closeapple (talk) 19:39, 14 August 2014 (UTC)

I see no alternative but to download the tiff from the Library of Congress and re-upload it using a chunked upload tool. These seem caused by server drop-outs which I don't get any warnings about and there is no tool (I think) that will sniff out these failures after a batch upload. I believe this sort of error occurs in fewer than 1/1000 files, but again I have no way of reporting on that at this time. This is not a specific issue with 30MB files, there are 130MB+ files from the same upload that are fine.
It's fine to raise this stuff on my talk page here, I'm less likely to forget about it. Smile fasdfdsfoiueire.svg -- (talk) 07:29, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Caught two more HAER images that are partials:

"Search and Retrieval of Similar Images"[edit]

Of any interest? --Nemo 16:49, 15 August 2014 (UTC)

Going by the abstract, this was about using description to match images along with identification of sub-regions of images; I have not ferreted out the paper as it seemed a narrow academic domain rather than a general treatment. We could do similar things, in effect we do using categories, but a reliable way of finding similar photographs by the image itself is what we really need, so that differing resolutions and even crops can be listed. -- (talk) 05:36, 17 August 2014 (UTC)
This is something I'd be very interested in for the British Library Mechanical Curator collection of images -- a million scanned images from 19th century books, with little or no metadata, currently sitting on Flickr. There are a lot of repeated engravings -- mostly decorative fillers, but also repeated feature engravings -- and it would be really good to be able to identify them, tag them, and trace the works they are used in.
I bookmarked some links a few months ago from a quick Google search, at User:Jheald/sandbox/Image similarity search, but it would be good to share ideas with other people. Do you know if there is any kind of community group or wikiproject interested in practical image analysis, here on Commons? Jheald (talk) 13:44, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Wrong category[edit]


Yes, here. --Jean11 (talk) 19:32, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the example. The batch is complete now, but if I return to refresh these (in a year or two?) I will review false matches like this to add to my ignore-this-cat trap. Smile fasdfdsfoiueire.svg -- (talk) 14:02, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Landscapes is not a dustbin category[edit]

Well, you've done it again. You've dumped dozens of photos of trees, towns etc into the landscapes category. You did this last year, and it took myself and several other editors almost 12 months to fix the mess. Could you please stop doing this? If you feel the need to dump images into an existing category, could you just dump them into the "Killer Whale" category or similar? They clearly don't belong there any more than they do in Landscapes, but at least those catgeories aren't labelled as being overcrowded. You really couldn't find a worse category in which to dump random images than the one that you have chosen. The landscape page says quite clearly that buildings, mountains and forests do NOT belong into this category, a point that I drew to your attention last year. Yet here we are again. It would also be appreciated if you could assist with cleaning up your mess. Thank you. Mark Marathon (talk) 23:12, 18 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, I don't know which files you are referring to. Landscapes does not appear to have any of my uploads in it. Thanks -- (talk) 08:06, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

And so on and so forth.Mark Marathon (talk) 10:24, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

Okay, thanks for the feedback. These were uploaded in 2012, not 2014, so asking me 2 years later to stop uploading them is an odd request. I'll think about taking a look, but there are only a relatively small handful of files there. -- (talk) 11:42, 23 August 2014 (UTC)

I deleted ~300 files with missing information since 8/11/14 in one sitting. Thanks for rescuing! --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 17:27, 19 August 2014 (UTC)


Hi, you are tireless (I hope that is the right English word) in uploading zillions of files to Commons. I try to keep track and help categorizing them (although it just consumes too much time). Now, you are (or were) uploading the HAER/HABS files. Since I am not proficient in using bots, I wanted to ask if you could give me some assistance on how to categorize these quickly, for example the "Quonset Point Naval Air Station" files to something like "Naval Air Station Quonset Point HAER/HABS files". Thank you and Cheers Cobatfor (talk) 10:41, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi the easiest tool to use is Help:Gadget-Cat-a-lot. It is quite visual. Per #HABS/HAER identifiers as sort keys? I am gradually adding the survey number as a 'sort code' to place categories (unless the file has been recategorized by someone else), so even in very large place categories, it should become simpler to find all related files. -- (talk) 10:55, 19 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks! The idea with the code seems logical. I will try the bot thing (I hope I won't mix up everything that way...). Cheers Cobatfor (talk) 12:37, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi, you used a wrong cat "Windberg" for some files. I changed cat to "Buildings in the United States Virgin Island". As an example see this file. Regards, --Gomera-b (talk) 19:57, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. The place categories are particularly hard to get right, so please to correct any you notice that have odd results. -- (talk) 06:06, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Related names/photographer[edit]

[1]: why do the related names go in the photographer section? I don't get it. - Jmabel ! talk 23:58, 19 August 2014 (UTC)

Nice example, all the others I've noticed were names of people rather than boats. These are often lists of names of those in the records, both survey project members or those involved in archiving the records. Sometimes none is specifically named as photographer. It just seemed mostly appropriate to add them as additions to the photographer field with their own sub-title, rather than floating in the general notes or description. -- (talk) 06:10, 20 August 2014 (UTC)
So presumably this is wrong here. I don't know enough about how this template should be used to easily edit accordingly, could you do that? - Jmabel ! talk 18:47, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Examples of complicated metadata[edit]

Hi Fae,

You were saying some very interesting things at Wikimania about some of the more complicated examples of metadata that you have encountered in some of your recent bulk uploads -- things like multiple relevant creation dates, different licenses attached to different parts of the data and image, etc.

Would it be possible to give some examples, and for you to expand on this?

I know I'd personally find it very helpful.

It would be great if you could. All best, Jheald (talk) 12:43, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Sure, I might have to return to this at the weekend, after the bank holiday my diary is looking a bit tight. -- (talk) 13:16, 26 August 2014 (UTC)
Absolutely no hurry. Thanks! Jheald (talk) 13:34, 26 August 2014 (UTC)

Adding intelligent match categories[edit]

Hi, Fæ. I just noticed this edit, where you added back a category that I had removed. I removed it when I was diffusing Category:Presidio of San Francisco. That category was pretty crowded, so I made subcategories for some of the identifiable buildings. It looks like you made the same change to a lot of other files as well.

I did a lot of work over the last week or two on HABS files related to San Francisco. I'm now wondering if you made similar changes to any of the other files where I diffused categories. Is there a way you can check the changes you did to see? I think the files belong in the lower-level categories and not in the higher-level ones. Do you disagree? Is there a way you can avoid un-diffusing in the future?

Let me know how we can resolve this. Thanks. --Auntof6 (talk) 09:57, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

By the way, I'm currently removing Category:Presidio of San Francisco again. --Auntof6 (talk) 10:00, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
I have added "Building" and "Presidio" to a category check, if found the image is skipped for the intelligent NRHP matching as categories including those words are a give-away that a detailed place category has been added. This is a tricky area of housekeeping as it may be beneficial to add a place category twice. If you have ideas for better pattern matching I'd be happy to try them. -- (talk) 10:25, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
Thanks very much. The only better idea I have is not to add a category if a file is already in a subcategory of the one being added. However, I know that's probably not practical. Is this something you do multiple times, or do you just do one pass at any given group of files? --Auntof6 (talk) 01:45, 30 August 2014 (UTC)

Hi Fae! Could you please grant me GWToolset on beta.commons? I'd like to get my feet wet. :-) --Hedwig in Washington (mail?) 02:19, 30 August 2014 (UTC)
