  • matching (Commons<>PCL)
  • naming on Commons, e.g. replacing ambiguous names like "map of xy" with more descriptive name including the date or the special purpose of the map - this are historic maps and a historic map cant have the pretence of universal/eternal validity.
  • adding appropriate description to often undescribed files from PCL.
