GLAMwiki toolset[edit]

Hi Susannaanas,

Congratulations on becoming a user of the GLAMwiki Toolset. You can find some frequently asked questions and helpful links for using the tool at GLAMwiki Toolset. As your first step, please add yourself to the list of users at GWToolset users and follow the good practice of creating pages explaining your new projects, as these can help create a focus for our wider community of volunteers. A standard place to set up a project page is at Batch uploading, though long term GLAM programmes may fall under GLAM. To discuss the tool with fellow users, please join the email list GLAMtools or try chatting at #wikimedia-commons webchat. SteinsplitterBot (talk) 11:25, 27 April 2014 (UTC)[reply]

Senate atlas[edit]

Senaatin kartaston thumbnail-indeksikartassa on jossain Mynämäen takamailla vähän Säkylän Pyhäjärvestä etelään Kakskerran lehti.

Help decide the future of Wikimania[edit]

Wikimania logo with text.svg

The Wikimedia Foundation is currently running a consultation on the value and planning process of Wikimania, and is open until 18 January 2016. The goals are to (1) build a shared understanding of the value of Wikimania to help guide conference planning and evaluation, and (2) gather broad community input on what new form(s) Wikimania could take (starting in 2018).

After reviewing the consultation, we'd like to hear your feedback on on this survey.

In addition, feel free to share any personal experiences you have had at at a Wikimedia movement conference, including Wikimania. We plan to compile and share back outcomes from this consultation in February.

With thanks,

When categorising files, please avoid placing them into several categories that are directly linked within the same tree (e.g. a parent category and a child category – like Category:United Kingdom and Category:London), to prevent over-categorization of files and over-population of categories. Usually, only the most specific category should be used. See Commons:Categories for more details. Thank you.

Thanks for uploading File:Orto 676495 10cm.tif. I notice that the file page either doesn't contain enough information about the license or it contains contradictory information about the license, so the copyright status is unclear.

If you created this file yourself, then you must provide a valid copyright tag. For example, you can tag it with {{self|GFDL|cc-by-sa-all}} to release it under the multi-license GFDL plus Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike All-version license or you can tag it with {{PD-self}} to release it into the public domain. (See Commons:Copyright tags for the full list of license tags that you can use.)

If you did not create the file yourself or if it is a derivative of another work that is possibly subject to copyright protection, then you must specify where you found it (e.g. usually a link to the web page where you got it), you must provide proof that it has a license that is acceptable for Commons (e.g. usually a link to the terms of use for content from that page), and you must add an appropriate license tag. If you did not create the file yourself and the specific source and license information is not available on the web, you must obtain permission through the VRT system and follow the procedure described there.

Note that any unsourced or improperly licensed files will be deleted one week after they have been marked as lacking proper information, as described in criteria for deletion.

Reminder: Round 2 of Picture of the Year 2016 is open![edit]

POTY barnstar.svg

You are receiving this message because you voted in R1 of the 2016 Picture of the Year contest.

Dear Susannaanas,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the second round of the 2016 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eleventh edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2016) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year were entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

There are two total rounds of voting. In the first round, you voted for as many images as you liked. In Round 1, there were 1475 candidate images. There are 58 finalists in Round 2, comprised of the top 30 overall as well as the top #1 and #2 from each sub-category.

In the final round, you may vote for just one or maximal three image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 2 will end on 20 April 2017, 23:59:59 UTC.

Click here to vote »

Thanks,
--Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee 08:43, 16 April 2017 (UTC)

Lars-Gunnar Nordström[edit]

Hi Susannaanas. I noticed that you uploaded File:Ilmari Aalto -The Bells, 1914.jpg from The Finnish National Gallery on 5 April 2016. I wonder do you know the status of "Red Composition" (1954) by Lars-Gunnar Nordström, which is currently on display at The Ateneum in Helsinki? Is it possible to request a release of an image of that work from them? The painting is currently shown on the internet here, alongside very many other images of Nordström's work, but the copyright status of these images is unclear. You will also see that "Red Composition" (1954) is shown at that page in a different orientation to the one used for its current gallery display. Many thanks for any help you can provide. Martinevans123 (talk) 21:00, 16 September 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Hi! The uploaded image was part of a selection of images that the National Gallery released in the context of the Europeana campaign. We are looking forward to further releases, but I have no information about that myself. Paintings created in 1954 would be under copyright and the National Gallery would have no right to release them. Lars-Gunnar Nordström's paintings will be in Public Domain in 2084, since he died in 2014. The copyright holders may decide to license openly, but that's another story. Cheers, Susanna Ånäs (Susannaanas) (talk) 06:45, 17 September 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Many thanks, Susanna. That's very clear and helpful. I wonder do you have any idea for a second image that might be used to illustrate Nordström's article? I see that the fi.wiki doesn't have one. Martinevans123 (talk) 08:50, 17 September 2017 (UTC)[reply]
You could search finna.fi for openly licensed photographs. Here you can see more clearly the copyright status of the works, as they are listed through this service. – Susanna Ånäs (Susannaanas) (talk) 10:05, 17 September 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Many thanks again, Susanna., that's a really useful link. Do you have any idea which source has been used for all those Nordström images at that website? I'm guessing every single one of them contravenes copyright. (And I'm not really sure they are "fractal art" at all, either). Martinevans123 (talk) 17:37, 17 September 2017 (UTC)[reply]
They are all listed by the National Gallery and there are no redistribution rights to them. The National Gallery may display them based on a compensation agreement with copyright holders. – Susanna Ånäs (Susannaanas) (talk) 17:44, 17 September 2017 (UTC)[reply]
Ah, ok. So there may be some copyright agreement that is not published. Thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 20:54, 17 September 2017 (UTC)[reply]

Translation request[edit]

Hello, may I ask you for some help? The Template:Created with/fi (working together with the Template:Created with .../fi) needs a professional translation. Examples how to do are the English version Created with .../en which is very simple, may be your language needs a more complicated layout like e.g. Created with .../it or Created with .../es.
Far below at that documentation it can be seen swiftly how each selected language is translated. May be I made not clear what I am asking you to do, just give me a Ping to get more explanations. -- sarang사랑 08:15, 3 July 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Maps upload[edit]

Hi Susanna! Hope you're well.

I was wondering if I could trouble you for any thoughts on a map upload -- pilot set at Category:BL18C_pilot, bot request at Commons:Bots/Requests/JhealdBot (6)

Do these look all right to you? Any suggestions for things I should adjust or improve? Do you agree with Eugene's suggestion that I should try to internationalise the creator role, eg Draftsman?

I have myself used Wikidata values in quite unorthodox ways. I have been adding them with the Q-template to fields that are not initially prepared to handle Wikidata values. I have believed that in this way they will be disambiguated readily for SDC.

I should mention that I added an extra field to {{Map}} for 'contributor' -- hope this is okay. The MARC-format library records I'm working from distinguish quite strongly the individual(s) considered to have primary responsibility for the work, as against other contributors, and I thought this was a useful distinction to be able to preserve. I think you may have reached a similar conclusion, if I remember the last Structured Data consultation correctly.

I will study this, but I don't feel strongly against at least.

Also slightly non-standard, on images like this one with multiple subjects, I have added a new template {{WrapWD}} because otherwise it wouldn't be clear which wikidata item corresponded to which location. I have also stuck with the (LCSH-derived) forms of names used for places per the original record, eg "Magellan, Strait of (Chile and Argentina)", rather than something more internationalisable like "straits of Magellan"; or Strait of Magellan (Q48365). Not sure whether or not that is the right choice.

I think it is important to record the format in which the name was written in the original (at least as text) , but for reference purposes I think one will have to be satisfied with the title of the Wikidata item.

The other aspect I wanted to pick your brains on: do you think it would be okay to create Wikidata items for these objects? It would be nice to be able to run SPARQL queries against them; and, from the upload side, quite useful to have relevant information all organised in a database -- eg to be able to pull out names of creators/contributors not yet matched to Wikidata; or to slowly work on some of the data from the notes fields. And it would surely throw up some quite interesting questions -- eg how to represent a map containing 4 smaller maps, each with their relevant creators, titles, information, etc.

But I am not sure how this would stand with wikidata notability; and within the wider roadmap of the Maps project. What would be the issues pro and con creating potentially up to 20,000 such objects.

I have always been pro adding maps to Wikidata. But in order to create sensible guidelines, it would make sense to add FRBR type works only. The question that remains to be seen is if SDC only can serve maps well enough. This has not been an option before.
Also, have you noted the option of representing a map with several sheets as a category. MapWarper can ingest such a category and thus place all the sheets in a single view.

Also, btw, I created a new page d:Wikidata:WikiProject Maps/stats on the wikidata maps project that you might be interested in, to give an idea of the balance of which properties, types, etc are actually in use. Though the stats might get skewed a bit if/when I started bulk-adding items.

ok, sounds reasonable

Anyhow, would be very grateful for any input you could give. Thanks, Jheald (talk) 21:43, 22 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Thanks for your insights!
Cheers, Susanna Ånäs (Susannaanas) (talk) 23:37, 22 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for your thoughts. So I think I will go ahead with creating WD pages -- if in future we decide to shift the data to SDC then so be it; but in the meantime the items may be quite useful, as I think will be the experience of the process of creating them. We can always split them out from the stats page, in the way you have already done for maps of type Wikimedia route diagram (Q17146139), to separate them from the rest.
I think I'll stick with {{WrapWD}} giving names as stated in the catalogue for the moment -- if people ask for the change, the template could easily enough be switched to give the wikidata label instead.
The option of sub-categories is to good to hold in mind -- though the BL quite like the idea of being able to see the collection images in catalogue sequence, so I may need to think a bit more on this.
Thanks for getting back to me so quickly. It's really useful to be able to get such feedback when setting out on a project like this! I dare say I'll be bothering you again before too long, when questions start arising creating the wikidata entries :-) . Jheald (talk) 08:54, 23 September 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Structured Data - copyright and licensing statements[edit]

I've posted a second round of designs for modeling copyright and licensing in structured data. These redesigns are based off the feedback received in the first round of designs, and the development team is looking for more discussion. These designs are extremely important for the Commons community to review, as they deal with how copyright and licensing is translated from templates into structured form. I look forward to seeing you over there. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 16:25, 2 November 2018 (UTC)[reply]

Multilingual captions beta testing[edit]

The Structured Data on Commons team has begun beta testing of the first feature, multilingual file captions, and all community members are invited to test it out. Captions is based on designs discussed with the community[1][2] and the team is looking forward to hearing about testing. If all goes well during testing, captions will be turned on for Commons around the second week of January, 2019.

Multilingual captions are plain text fields that provide brief, easily translatable details of a file in a way that is easy to create, edit, and curate. Captions are added during the upload process using the UploadWizard, or they can be added directly on any file page on Commons. Adding captions in multiple languages is a simple process that requires only a few steps.

The details:

  • There is a help page available on how to use multilingual file captions.
  • Testing will take place on Beta Commons. If you don’t yet have an account set up there, you’ll need one.
  • Beta Commons is a testbed, and not configured exactly like the real Commons site, so expect to see some discrepancies with user interface (UI) elements like search.
  • Structured Data introduces the potential for many important page changes to happen at once, which could flood the recent changes list. Because of this, Enhanced Recent Changes is enabled as it currently is at Commons, but with some UI changes.
  • Feedback and commentary on the file caption functionality are welcome and encouraged on the discussion page for this post.
  • Some testing has already taken place and the team are aware of some issues. A list of known issues can be seen below.
  • If you discover a bug/issue that is not covered in the known issues, please file a ticket on Phabricator and tag it with the “Multimedia” tag. Use this link to file a new task already tagged with "Multimedia."

Known issues:

Thanks!

Structured Data - file captions coming this week (January 2019)[edit]

Hi all, following up on last month's announcement...

Multilingual file captions will be released this week, on either Wednesday, 9 November or Thursday, 10 November 2019. Captions are a feature to add short, translatable descriptions to files. Here's some links you might want to look follow before the release, if you haven't already:

  1. Read over the help page for using captions - I wrote the page on mediawiki.org because captions are available for any MediaWiki user, feel free to host/modify a copy of the page here on Commons.
  2. Test out using captions on Beta Commons.
  3. Leave feedback about the test on the captions test talk page, if you have anything you'd like to say prior to release.

Additionally, there will be an IRC office hour on Thursday, 10 January with the Structured Data team to talk about file captions, as well as anything else the community may be interested in. Date/time conversion, as well as a link to join, are on Meta.

Thanks for your time, I look forward to seeing those who can make it to the IRC office hour on Thursday. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:22, 7 January 2019 (UTC)[reply]

File:Est a 3046-7.tif[edit]

Commons-emblem-issue.svg
File:Est a 3046-7.tif has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.

If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue. Please see Commons:But it's my own work! for a guide on how to address these issues.

Please remember to respond to and – if appropriate – contradict the arguments supporting deletion. Arguments which focus on the nominator will not affect the result of the nomination. Thank you!

Structured Data - development update, March 2019[edit]

This text is also posted on the Structured Data hub talk page. You can reply there with questions, comments, or concerns.

A development update for the current work by the Structured Data on Commons team:

After the release of multilingual file captions, work began on getting depicts and other statements ready for release. These were originally scheduled for release in February and into March, however there are currently two major blockers to finishing this work (T215642, T217157). We will know more next week about when depicts and statements can likely be ready for testing and then release; until then I've tentatively updated the release schedule.

Once the depicts feature is ready for testing, it will take place in two stages on TestCommons. The first is checking the very basics; is the design comfortable, how does the simple workflow of adding/editing/removing statements work, and building up help and process pages from there. The second part is a more detailed test of depicts and other statements, checking the edge-case examples of using the features, bugs that did not come up during simple testing, etc. Additionally we'll be looking with the community for bugs in interaction with bots, gadgets, and other scripts once the features are live on Commons. Please let me know if you're interesting in helping test and fix these bugs if they show up upon release, it is really hard to find them in a test environment or, in some cases, bugs won't show up in a testing environment at all.

One new thing is definitely coming within the next few weeks, pending testing: the ability to search for captions. This is done using the inlabel keyword in search strings, and will be the first step in helping users find content that is specifically structured data. I'll post a notice when that feature is live and ready for use.

Thanks, let me know if you have questions about these plans. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:34, 12 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Structured Data - early depicts testing[edit]

The Structured Data on Commons development team has the very basic version of depicts statements available for early testing on Test-Commons. You can add very basic depicts statements to the file page by going into the new “Structured Data” tab located below the "Open in Media Viewer button." You can use the Latest Files link in the left side nav bar to select existing images, or use the UploadWizard to upload new ones to test with (although those images won’t actually show up on the site). The test site is not a fully functional replica of Commons, so there may be some overall problems in using the site, but you should be able to get a general idea of what using the feature is like.

Early next week I will call for broad, community-wide testing of the feature similar to what we did for Captions, with instructions for testing, known bugs, and a dedicated space to discuss the feature as well as a simple help page for using statements. Until then, you're welcome to post on the SDC talk page with what you might find while testing depicts.

Thanks in advance for trying it out, you'll be hearing more from me next week. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 21:59, 21 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

I noticed that you tried out depicts on Test-Commons. Please take a moment to let the developers know what you think, whether it's answering their direct questions, leaving your own feedback, or even noting if you don't have any feedback to give at this time. It would be much appreciated. Thanks. Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:43, 29 March 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Structured Data - testing qualifiers for depicts[edit]

As you might have seen, testing is underway for adding qualifiers to depicts statements. If you have not left feedback already, the Structured Data on Commons development team is very interested in hearing about your experience using qualifiers on the file page and in the UploadWizard. To get started you can visit Test-Commons and chose a random file to test out, or upload your own file to try out the UploadWizard. Questions, comments, and concerns can be left on the Structured data talk page and the team will address them as best as they can. Thank you for your time. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 19:08, 11 June 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Structured Data on Commons - IRC office hours this week, 18 July[edit]

The Structured Data team is hosting an IRC office hour this week on Thursday, 18 July, from 17:00-18:00 UTC. Joining information as well as date and time conversion is available on Meta. Potential topics for discussion are the testing of "other statements", properties that may need to be created for Commons on Wikidata soon, plans for the rest of SDC development, or whatever you might want to discuss. The development team looks forward to seeing you there. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:51, 16 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Structured Data - testing other statements[edit]

You can now test using other statements for structured data on the file page on Test-Commons. Some datatypes are not yet available, such a coordinates, but further support will be extended soon. You can find more information about testing on the SDC talk page. The team looks forward to your feedback. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 16:41, 24 July 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Structured Data - computer-aided tagging[edit]

The development team is starting work on one of the last planned features for SDC v1.0, a lightweight tool to suggest depicts tags for images. I've published a project page for it, please have a look. I plan to share this page with everyone on Commons much more broadly in the coming days. The tool has been carefully designed to try to not increase any workload on Commons volunteers; for starters, it will be opt-in for auto-confirmed users only and will not generate any sort of backlog here on Commons. Additionally, the tool is highly privacy-minded for the contributors and publicly-minded for the third party being used, in this case Google. The implementation and usage notes contain more information about these and other potential concerns as a starting place. It's really important that the tool is implemented properly from the start, so feedback is welcome. Questions, comments, concerns are welcome on the talk page and I will get answers as quickly as possible as things come up. On the talk page you can also sign up to make sure you're a part of the feedback for designs and prototype testing. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 17:57, 17 September 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Structured Data - modeling data[edit]

As you may have seen, there are community discussions underway on how to best model structured data on Commons.

Direct links to pages created so far:

Please visit and participate in topics you might be interested in when you get some time. Thanks. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 19:39, 2 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Structured Data - computer-aided tagging designs[edit]

I've published a design consultation for the computer-aided tagging tool. Please look over the page and participate on the talk page. If you haven't read over the project page, it might be helpful to do so first. The tool will hopefully be ready by the end of this month (October 2019), so timely feedback is important. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 18:09, 9 October 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Important message for file movers[edit]

Commons File mover.svg

A community discussion has been closed where the consensus was to grant all file movers the suppressredirect user right. This will allow file movers to not leave behind a redirect when moving files and instead automatically have the original file name deleted. Policy never requires you to suppress the redirect, suppression of redirects is entirely optional.

Possible acceptable uses of this ability:

  • To move recently uploaded files with an obvious error in the file name where that error would not be a reasonable redirect. For example: moving "Sheep in a tree.jpg" to "Squirrel in a tree.jpg" when the image does in fact depict a squirrel.
  • To perform file name swaps.
  • When the original file name contains vandalism. (File renaming criterion #5)

Please note, this ability should be used only in certain circumstances and only if you are absolutely sure that it is not going to break the display of the file on any project. Redirects should never be suppressed if the file is in use on any project. When in doubt, leave a redirect. If you forget to suppress the redirect in case of file name vandalism or you are not fully certain if the original file name is actually vandalism, leave a redirect and tag the redirect for speedy deletion per G2.

The malicious or reckless breaking of file links via the suppressredirect user right is considered an abuse of the file mover right and is grounds for immediate revocation of that right. This message serves as both a notice that you have this right and as an official warning. Questions regarding this right should be directed to administrators. --Majora (talk) 21:36, 7 November 2019 (UTC)[reply]

Hi. Thanks for having added the requested source but I still don't see a valid license at https://aineistopankki.thl.fi/l/28Kmmw89m2Hn. Yours, --Patrick Rogel (talk) 08:18, 28 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
You can probably see that they have been cleared with an OTRS ticket. – Susanna Ånäs (Susannaanas) (talk) 08:59, 28 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Susannaanas: No, files you have uploaded don't have OTRS permission. May you verify your claim with an OTRS Team member, please? --Patrick Rogel (talk) 09:30, 28 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Patrick Rogel and Htm: ie: File:THL korona pese A3 tulostus eng.pdf and OTRS ticket number #2020032110003164. --Zache (talk) 09:22, 28 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I'm not talking about this one. --Patrick Rogel (talk) 09:30, 28 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Ok, I am clearly missing something. Why the OTRS-permit of the source is not enough? AFAIK it should cover the derivate works too. --Zache (talk) 09:38, 28 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
File:THL korona pese A3 tulostus eng.pdf has an OTRS permission; files you have uploaded have not. --Patrick Rogel (talk) 10:23, 28 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
Yes, THL korona pese A3 tulostus eng.pdf has OTRS permission and it is licensed under CC-BY-SA. Creative Commons BY-SA licence allows making derivate works ( = translations: File:Wash your hands German.pdf, File:Wash your hands Estonian.pdf, File:Coughing instructions Estonian.pdf) without any additional permissions needed. Also: note, there is no original file in Wikimedia Commons for Distance Turkish.pdf so it genuinely requires the OTRS-permission but I asked @Htm: to check if source files for it was covered by the original permission too. --Zache (talk) 10:37, 28 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I've asked her as well. --Patrick Rogel (talk) 10:46, 28 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
@Patrick Rogel: , now there is source file File:2020-03 THL Metrin vali 1280x768 eng.pdf with OTRS-permission for Distance Turkish.pdf. There is also OTRS userbox [3], which afaik is optional anyway. (The updated list of the OTRS members is here Template:OTRS/Users). Is there some other problems which i should be aware of or is it ok to remove the problem templates? If there is something what should be done then please describe what we should do next. --Zache (talk) 07:31, 29 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]
I think everything is in order now; I was waiting Htm confirms she was an OTRS Team member. --Patrick Rogel (talk) 07:36, 29 March 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Commons - Media Search[edit]

Greetings,

The Structured Data team is working on an alternative, image-focused prototype for media search on Commons. The prototype uses categories, structured data as well as wikitext from Commons, and Wikidata to find its results. The development team would like your feedback on the prototype, as they are looking to work to further enhance the search experience on Commons. If you have a moment, please look over the project page set up on Commons to find a link to the prototype and leave your feedback on the talk page. Thanks for your time, I'll be posting message similar to this one to other pages on Commons. The team is looking forward to reading what you think.

Commons - Media Sarch, new feedback round[edit]

Greetings,

I'm following up on a message from earlier in the year about the prototype development for Special:MediaSearch. Based on community feedback, the Structured Data team has developed some new features for Special:MediaSearch and are seeking another round of comments and discussions about the tool. Commons:Structured_data/Media_search is updated with details about the new features plus some other development information, and feedback is welcome on Commons talk:Structured_data/Media_search. Media Search works in any language, so the team would especially appreciate input around support for languages other than English. I look forward to reading about what you think. -- Keegan (WMF) (talk) 20:05, 23 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]

Commons:Wikimaps[edit]

Hello Susannaanas,
I joined the Wikidata Con 2021 and got a discussion with other users. We chatted about maps and your project came up, so I dug for its page and brought it to the discussion. And, yes, I'am once again astonished by your project ! It so great your pushed for this and it nurtured later map discussions. Clearly a major phase of Wikimedia's map efforts. The small group of old Wikipedians/Wikidatans were remembering fondly of your tool. Thank you <3 Yug (talk) 21:15, 31 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

I am so happy for this comment, thank you! Please join the Wikimaps Telegram channel as well! Susanna Ånäs (Susannaanas) (talk) 12:03, 2 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Medea-chart database on old nautical charts[edit]

Hi, I’m sending this message to all participants of Commons Wikimaps listed here, so that I can be pretty sure it will get to some of you. I am the Principal Investigator of the ERC funded project Medea-Chart ([4]), hosted by the University of Lisbon, whose scientific objective is the study of the genesis, evolution and use of nautical charts from the Middle Ages to the early modern period. One of the visible outcomes of our project is the Medea-Chart database, aimed at storing and making available information and images of all extant manuscript nautical charts: [5]. Since the images of old maps and charts are now in the public domain and our database is open to all, I’m sure your project could benefit from it. The most obvious way would be to download from there all the images you are interested in, but I imagine you could use the tool for more sophisticated purposes. For now, I invite all of you to go there, browse the database, do geographical searches, read our “Chart of the Week” mini-articles, etc. You don’t even need to register for that. Registration is only required for those interested in downloading high resolution images or producing reports. Best wishes and have fun, Alvesgaspar (talk) 21:17, 17 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Thank you for the information, @Alvesgaspar! This sounds a superb resource and a possible project, making use of the charts through the Wikimedia projects. I will personally make a deep dive into the resource, and I will be happy to provide further comments and ideas about this! Susanna Ånäs (Susannaanas) (talk) 11:58, 18 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
