TSD[edit]

Hi, von dir kommen die Fotos zu den Technischen Sammlungen Dresden. Ich habe den Artikel etwas um Erlebnisland Mathematik (http://www.math.tu-dresden.de/alg/erlebnisland/) erweitert. Nicht ganz ohne Eigennutz empfehle ich, Fotos von diesem Ausstellungsteil zu ergänzen. Ich weiß nicht, wie mit den Rechten verfahren wird, du scheinst da Erfahrungen zu haben. TSD hat in aktuell etwas(http://www.tsd.de/aktuell). Dresden Fernsehen hat ein Video anlässlich der Eröffnung des neuen Teiles Erlebnisland hoch zwei (ab 26.3.2010) online (http://www.dresden-fernsehen.de/default.aspx?ID=6090&showNews=672571#video). Videos aus der Rohbauphase kannst du interessehalber angucken (www.tronikdesign.de/moebius/videos/moebiusbahn_kamera_eilmitfahrt.mov und www.tronikdesign.de/moebius/videos/moebius_eilrunde.mov)

Rechtlich ist das momentan etwas in der Grauzone. Richtig nachgefragt habe ich nicht, aber ich hatte mir eine Fotoerlaubnis für das Museum zugelegt und bei den historischen, technischen Gegenständen hatte ich auch wenig Bedenken, dass ich damit das Urheberrecht verletzen könnte. Im Gegensatz dazu gehören einige Objekte des Erlebnislandes für mich in den Bereich von Kunstobjekten, da wäre ich also schon mal vorsichtig.
Jedoch, wenn du Bilder von der Webseite nehmen willst, geht das für die Wikipedia garnicht, ohne beim Museum um Erlaubnis nachzufragen. Ich hatte mir sogar schon mal überlegt, mich im dortigen Förderverein zu engagieren weil mich das Museum fasziniert, allerdings fehlt mir auch aufgrund der Wikipedia komplett die Zeit dafür. Aber wenn du beim Museum mal nachfragst und vielleicht eine richtige Fotoerlaubniss für die Wikipedia bekämst, wäre ich gerne bereit mal mit richtiger Technik anzurücken und ordentliche Fotos zu machen. Eigentlich wäre es für ein Fotomuseum auch gut, mal den aktuellen Stand der Fototechnik z.B. mit Gigapan-Bilder zu zeigen, mit sowas könnte ich dienen und z.B. Mal ein Panorama oben vom Turm machen. Vielleicht gibt es auch noch andere Kooperationsmöglichkeiten zwischen der Wikipedia und dem Museum/dem Förderverein. --Kolossos (talk) 21:07, 28 March 2010 (UTC)

Lüneburg[edit]

Hallo Kolossos, File:Lueneburg-IHK2.jpg ist anscheinend defekt oder, falls nicht, jedenfalls kaum zu managen. IrfanView konnte es zwar gerade so öffnen, zeigte aber massive Bildfehler und eine (unkomprimierte) Dateigröße von 500 MB! --Túrelio (talk) 18:38, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

War mir auch aufgefallen. Interessanterweise war es bei mir ok, aber selbst nachdem ich die Auflösung auf ein viertel runtergerechnet hatte war es auf dem Server kaputt. Naja nun geht es: File:Lueneburg-IHK.jpg. --Kolossos (talk) 17:03, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Gigapan vs Macro[edit]

I am impressed by this technology, my work is mostly macro. Have you tried the GigaPan for macro? Merci --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 06:08, 11 June 2010 (UTC)

Not jet, what size do have in mind. My camera has a nearest focus distance of 42 cm at f=120mm. So i could try a gigapan of 15x15cm or so. two problems could be: The nodal point must be more exactly and depth of field is more restricted. Do you have an idea for a motive? --Kolossos (talk) 11:19, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
I increase the sharpness in extreme circumstances as in: File:Heliophyllite3.jpg do you think this is possible with the Gigapan?--Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 15:52, 11 June 2010 (UTC)
I know this technic. It should be possible manually but I don't know a camera that make automatically a image series with various focus. After this I would say first it would be good to make focus stacking and than panorama stacking. Seems to be a lot work , perhaps it's easier to take a electron microscope [1] ;-). --Kolossos (talk) 20:00, 14 June 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for all this information, I will inquire about CombineZM. --Archaeodontosaurus (talk) 17:16, 15 June 2010 (UTC)

Geocoding/Panorama project bug[edit]

Hi,

I was using your panorama script, nice idea btw., though I was unfortunately not successful. And found some issue with umlauts in the generated template. If you enter an image name containing umlauts for the GET-parameter in the address bar, they're double utf8-encoded. (At least in my browser:Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; de; rv:1.9.1.9) Gecko/20100317 SUSE/3.5.9-0.1.1 Firefox/3.5.9)

Here:

|image=".utf8_encode($image)."<br>

Oh, and how about giving the labels some transparency e.g.:

background-color:rgba(200, 200, 255, 0.3);

Defekte Datei / "Virus" in File:Dresden-Fuerstenzug4.jpg[edit]

Hallo Kolossos. Im Support-team schlug grade eine Nachricht auf, dass besagte Datei einen Virus enthielte: "Es wurde eine Datei übertragen, die einen Virus enthält und daher von McAfee Web Gateway geblockt wird. Name des Virus: McAfeeGW: Exploit.MS04-028.JPEG.C" Ob der McAffee da nun richtig liegt oder nicht - ich kann auch nur das Thumbnail ansehen, die vollständige Datei wird von meinem Firefox als Fehlerhaft abgewiesen. Es wäre schön, wenn du dich darum kümmern könntest. Danke im Voraus --Guandalug (talk) 10:05, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Die Datei ist für manche Browser zu groß. Irfanview zeigt die hier (nach download) problemlos an, Microsoft Security Essentials zeigt keinen Exploit, Avira auch nicht. Dürfte ein Fehlalarm sein. -- smial (talk) 13:49, 26 August 2010 (UTC)
Das Ding ist unter Linux mit Gimp runtergerechnet wurden, ein Virus demnach äußerst unwahrscheinlich. Avira schlug bei mir aber auch an, ich halte es aber auch für einen Fehlalarm. --Kolossos (talk) 16:48, 26 August 2010 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Afrikaans | العربية | беларуская (тарашкевіца)‎ | català | čeština | dansk | Deutsch | Deutsch (Sie-Form)‎ | Ελληνικά | English | Esperanto | español | فارسی | suomi | français | galego | עברית | magyar | íslenska | italiano | 日本語 | ქართული | 한국어 | македонски | മലയാളം | Plattdüütsch | Nederlands | norsk bokmål | polski | português | português do Brasil | română | русский | slovenčina | slovenščina | српски / srpski | svenska | українська | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | 中文(简体)‎ | 中文(繁體)‎ | +/−


Hello, Kolossos!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

Category:Lueger[edit]

Hi Kolossos! Ich hab den Vorschlag von User:ŠJů leicht modifiziert und die Kat. Lueger in Category:Lexikon der gesamten Technik by Otto Lueger umzubenennen angetragen. Diskussion war keine, bis jetzt, Servas Boerl2 (talk) 09:35, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Wenn Ihr so lange Kategorienamen mögt, dann macht ruhig. Zu der Zeit als die Kategorie entstand waren halt kurzen KAtegoriennamen wie Category:Viollet-le-Duc in. Ich gebe aber zu, dass die nicht unbedingt selbsterklärend sind. --Kolossos (talk) 17:41, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
Yea stimmt eh, aber nur Lexikon der gesamten Technik ist auch verwirrend, oder Lueger's Lexikon ist auch naja. Wenns schon mal umbenannt wird. Die alte cat bleibt natürlich als redirect. --Boerl2 (talk) 21:42, 5 November 2010 (UTC)
Naja jetz ist es in Category:Images from Lexikon der gesamten Technik by Otto Lueger umbenannt worden, wie User:ŠJů es ursprünglich vorgeschlagen hat. Trotzdem, der Link auf der Seite user:Kolossos ist noch alt, weiss nicht warum, kommt vielleicht noch. Richtiger Redirekt geht offenbar nicht, nur -bad name-.. naja--Boerl2 (talk) 15:47, 8 November 2010 (UTC)

Suche in einer Kategorie unter Ausschluss einer anderen[edit]

Hallo Kolossos,

ich habe versucht Ausschnitte der Karte Petris von 1759 vollständig in Category:Map of Kurfüstentum Sachsen (Petri 1759) zu kategorisieren. Hier finden sich jetzt 47 Dateien wieder. Im SLUB-Katalog finden sich aber 49 Karten unter dem Namen "Petri". Ist es möglich die Category:Old maps of Germany from the Deutsche Fotothek unter Ausschluss der Dateien, die zudem in der Category:Map of Kurfüstentum Sachsen (Petri 1759) eingetragen sind nach "Petri" zu durchsuchen? Ich würde so gern sicher gehen, dass ich keine Datei in der Cat vergessen habe. Lieben Gruß, WikiAnika (talk) 10:56, 3 February 2011 (UTC)

Removed coordinates in commons-on-osm[edit]

Hi, Kolossos. Thanks for http://toolserver.org/~kolossos/openlayers/commons-on-osm.php. Maybe it would be faster — or at least cleaner — if it didn’t store long‐ungeocoded objects, like File:WLANL - arts of akki - Zonnebloemen, Vincent van Gogh, 1889.jpg (ungeocoded in June 2010) and some others, which you can see when visiting the page without any coordinates (also for some reason that 0,0 point is called South Pole — old tiles, I guess). --AVRS (talk) 22:00, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

Please ask this question User:Para. He handle all the data at http://toolserver.org/~para/GeoCommons/ . I only include his layer on a OSM-map. --Kolossos (talk) 08:47, 20 November 2011 (UTC)

OSM relations, ways and so one[edit]

Hello, since the WMF have their own servers, do you think that it could be possible to get the link of the nodes, ways or relations ? Like this one in order to have the better view of the subject ? Could we also have a bot which search on the OSM servers (of WMF) the key wikipedia ? And compare the coordinates of the object with the GPS coordinates ? Thanks for your attention Otourly (talk) 18:24, 22 November 2011 (UTC)

I work together with User:Master to use the Wikipedia-Key to embed OSM-Objects in our OSM-map. This should work without any change in Wikipedia. See: Principle of work. I will keep you I mind and give you a message if first tests are available.
Links to an OSM-ID's seems not a good idea, because they are not stable.
I hope that the New Wikidata project will be successful so that we would have a central place to save links/queries to OSM. --Kolossos (talk) 18:30, 25 November 2011 (UTC)
I imagined that OSM-ID's could change (if someone destroy an element and re-create it after). But I didn't think that it could be really unstable. As I understand you will have the same result by parsing the OSM's tag called wikipedia than the idea I write. Ok that's seems great ! Otourly (talk) 17:07, 28 November 2011 (UTC)
The Problem is that you start with a simple street with one osm-ID. Later somebody detect that there is a little brigde on this street and he split the street so that you have 3 OSM-IDs. Also other edits makes it necessary to split ways e.g. different speed-limits / different surface on parts of the street. So it's not a good idea. --Kolossos (talk) 22:07, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
Ok I will follow your work with interest :) Otourly (talk) 18:43, 30 November 2011 (UTC)
For your information : Template_talk:Location#Add_an_optionnal_parameter_for_OpenStreetMap (it's currently based and ways nodes and so one, I know it's not the good way but it's a start. I assume a Bot could upgrate them all easily after. Otourly (talk) 20:04, 1 December 2011 (UTC)

File:Ebstorfer-stich2.jpg is in public domain[edit]

Hello,

A public domain review of File:Ebstorfer-stich2.jpg showed this file is a scan of a document in public domain.

The technical operation to merge pictures is a technical operation not opening new copyrights.

New licensing information tags:

This is a faithful photographic reproduction of a two-dimensional, public domain work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:
Public domain This work is in the public domain in the United States, and those countries with a copyright term of life of the author plus 100 years or less.
This file has been identified as being free of known restrictions under copyright law, including all related and neighboring rights.
The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain".
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain. In other jurisdictions, re-use of this content may be restricted; see Reuse of PD-Art photographs for details.

Note: someone already previously replaced the original open sources licenses by a {{PD-Old}}. --Dereckson (talk) 19:25, 23 April 2013 (UTC)

No photo report[edit]

Greetings! I have been using this link to find wp.en articles on local places that lack a photograph. Unfortunately, the underlying KML service doesn't seem to have been working consistently in the last week. Should I be using a different link? Thanks! Bovlb (talk) 23:35, 30 August 2013 (UTC)

For me it works.
You can try OpenStreetMap as Baselayer in this tool. The KML is the same. There are a lot of reasons possible, so I and the WMF are working on https-support and also Google is working on Google Maps. Sometimes also the Toolserver very slow. So can't say the reason. --Kolossos (talk) 19:54, 31 August 2013 (UTC)
Ah. It was your mention of HTPPS that gave me the clue. I changed the underlying toolserver link from HTTP to HTTPS and now it works. [2]. Thank you. Bovlb (talk) 21:34, 31 August 2013 (UTC)

Erlwein-Büste von Georg Wrba[edit]

Hallo Kolossos, kannst Du mir bitte mitteilen, wo die von Dir aufgenommene oben genannte Büste steht (File:Dresden-Erlwein-Wrba.jpg)? Danke! MfG --Dgarte (talk) 08:43, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Wenn es nicht noch eine weitere gibt, dann siehe meine Annotation hier: File:Messering 1 Friedrichstadt 1.JPG, Lageangabe über w:de:Liste der Kulturdenkmale in der Friedrichstadt (Dresden)#Ladengebäude, Messering 1. -- 32X (talk) 20:57, 14 February 2014 (UTC)
Dgarte: Ich muss mich korrigieren, es gibt dort dicht beieinander zwei Büsten. Erlweins ist repräsentativ am Mittelrisalit des Gebäudes Messering 3 angebracht, Stöckels wenige Meter weiter an der schmalen Fassade des Gebäudes Messering 1, beide zeigen zur gleichen Straßenseite. Ich habe die Lageangaben bei beiden eingetragen. -- 32X (talk) 09:29, 30 April 2014 (UTC)

Wie lange braucht es bis Bilder in Commons on OSM erscheinen?[edit]

Hallo Kolossos, du machst das ja mit dem Commons on OSM, wo man geocodierte Bilder auf der Karte sehen kann. Ich habe Anfang des Jahres ein paar Bilder mit der Vorlage:Location dec ausgestattet (Beispiel), aber bis jetzt sind die nicht auf der OSM-Karte zu sehen. Kannst du mir sagen wie lange das ungefähr braucht bis die dort erscheinen? Viele Grüße --Pustekuchen2014 (talk) 09:42, 18 April 2014 (UTC)

Ich habe mal die Frage an den zuständigen Entwickler weitergegeben:User_talk:Para#Missing_pictures_on_the_map. Leider ist er nicht sonderlich aktiv mehr, sodass die Antwort etwas dauern kann. Ich kann die Frage nicht beantworten, von mir stammt nur das OpenLayers framework. --Kolossos (talk) 20:00, 18 April 2014 (UTC)
Ok, danke dafür. Mal schauen ob eine Antwort kommt. --Pustekuchen2014 (talk) 16:59, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Hilfe[edit]

lb Kolossos, ich hab voriges Jahr ein Oregon 600 gekauft, leider nur einmal verwendet, weil ich mich auch nicht wirklich ausgekannt habe. Wenn ich das in der Oberlausitz beim Neißetreffen verwenden möchte, welche Karten kann ich mir zB von der Oberlausitz runterladen (OSM), oder ist es besser, wenn ich gleich das Tablet mit OSMand+ verwende. Da hab ich die Karten schon drauf. Vielleicht hast du einmal eine halbe Stunde zeit. lb grüße aus Wien --Hubertl (talk) 15:32, 28 April 2014 (UTC)

Hallo Hubertl, ich benutze auch OSMAND, weil mein Garmin damals leider eine Sparversion ohne SD-Karte war. Der GPS-Empfänger ist in so einem Garmin wirklich besser als in einem Handy. Was aber keine Rolle spielt, wenn man die Gebäude eh vom Bing-Luftbild abmalt.
Zu deiner Frage: Als Karte würde ich eine Grenzüberschreitende Region von BBBike mir aussuchen, der Stil "Garmin Freizeitkarte" zeigt als einzigster Gebäude an und ist daher wohl zu bevorzugen. --Kolossos (talk) 21:24, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
Danke, bin schon am Runterladen. Freu mich schon auf das Wochenende--Hubertl (talk) 22:55, 28 April 2014 (UTC)
