As part of a partnership with Wikimédia France, the Musées de la Haute-Saône (codenamed Champlitte) are sharing part of their collection on Wikimedia Commons. Jean-Fred (talk) 23:25, 24 November 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The first tests look great. Is there anything that needs to be done for alignement ? I don't see any subject on the source records in Joconde that should be used to decide categories to use, so everything goes into the museum category and we categorize after ?

Thanks Symac for reviewing this.
The dataset provided by the museum was just a sample, with merely 136 records. Looking at the metadata export, I did not see any obvious candidate for an alignment − but that may be because of the sample size. I did not see any good source for categorisation, unfortunately − but that may be because I get a bit confused with the numerous Joconde fields.
There is though some parsing work to do. Size should be pretty much done ; a reverse look-up table together with a split-match-and-apply should do for technique (modulo the metadata confusion) ; rest does not seem to be good candidates for that either. Less work to do it seems :) Jean-Fred (talk) 22:05, 11 December 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If after two weeks there are no more concerns than mine (to which you answered perfectly), I think it should be a good idea to ask more data to the provider to go further with this partenership. Symac (talk) 07:18, 12 December 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Okay, we had a phone call with the museums last week, the project is back on tracks. We will make use of the GLAMwiki Toolset Project. Current target is to proceed with the upload at the end of January. Jean-Fred (talk) 23:22, 21 December 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Update: This is still happening. The museum folks are experimenting right now with the GWToolset on Commons Beta. Jean-Fred (talk) 10:20, 5 February 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]


Redux: GWToolset[edit]

We are getting very close to push files here. User:Tounoki from the museum is managing this.

Test files:

Some quick feedback based on the examples above.
  1. If the descriptions are always in French then a {{fr|1=<description>}} should be wrapped around it.
  2. "lieu de création" (currently part of the object history) should be mapped against the "place of creation" parameter instead
  3. Date should use {{other_date}} if possible. Unsure if GWtoolset supports this but looking at the json it the source data might have sufficient structure.
  4. Measures should use {{size}}. Looking at the json the source data should have sufficient structure.
  5. In the Sabot images
    1. The license seems to have disappeared
    2. an empty Creator template is used
    3. the institution template seems to be broken
    4. apostrophes ( ' ) seem to have been replaced by "&​#39;" (everywhere else is used)

Hi André, thanks a lot for your feedback.
  1. ✓ Done I used {{Original caption}} as it labels it as a description − we need to stuff other things into this field.
  2. ✓ Done
  3. I gave a try at parsing the date but it does not capture the complexity of the dates (for example « début 14e siècle » is only parsed to 14th century
    date QS:P,+1350-00-00T00:00:00Z/7
  4. ✓ Done Right.
As for the Sabot images I’m not sure what happened there − maybe User:Tounoki would know?
