Replace coodinates in file descriptions with {{Location}} template[edit]

Most files within Category:US National Archives series: Digital Photographs Relating to America's Byways have the exact location of the camera within their "|description=", such as "Location: Oregon (44.099° N 121.725° W)" on this file. It would be good if someone could convert this to use the standart {{Location}} template. I don't know how many files this affects exactly, but it are definitly multiple thousands. Further, many files have "Photo by XYZ" within the description, but the |author= parameter is empty, resulting in "Author: Unknown author or not provided" which could be fixed too.

Add coordinates to images[edit]

There are many images listed on Commons:Files used on OpenStreetMap that lack coordinates, but have them on OSM. A bot could add {{Object location}} to file description pages.

This was previously suggested by another user to the maintainer of the lists, but they have other things on their plate. @Herzi Pinki and Bjh21: Enhancing999 (talk) 09:21, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]

You could try User:Herzi Pinki/GeoTools to do this manually. best --Herzi Pinki (talk) 11:14, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Funny. An estimate how much time that would take? Enhancing999 (talk) 11:32, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
You can write a bot yourself, find someone who will do it for you, do it manually, or keep it as it is. It takes less than a minute per image using my scripts (I have done 6 now in 4 minutes: [1]). Do you have an estimation how many images are still missing location info? best --Herzi Pinki (talk) 20:34, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
The purpose of this page is to find a contributor who is willing to do it by bot. You might want to redact your comments accordingly.
There are about 175 subpages. I check one, it had 1000 images with 60% without coordinates. Enhancing999 (talk) 21:47, 20 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
You asked for an estimate. best --Herzi Pinki (talk) 10:10, 21 April 2024 (UTC)[reply]
Can you elaborate and explain on your other suggestions. I consider them off topic.
