- Manage maps metadata well using the Map template
- Aim for structured metadata for the maps in Wikidata or Commons
- Foster maps batch uploads with institutions (structured metadata)
- Advance geospatial and textual search for maps
- Use maps in Wikipedias, engage volunteers
Make rectified historical maps available in Wikimedia Commons
Amateur historians, app developers
Amateur historians find compelling materials that they can use in their research of specific locations
Make collecting and displaying historical geographic data fun and easy for everyone
Promote contributing to open repositories and opening one’s hobbyist research for collaborative action.
Have available a rich collection of visual geographically aware materials
Be able to illustrate Wikipedia in new ways. Historical as well as maps (geo) in general
Enhances the quality and usefulness of Wikipedia
Provide an avenue to expose cultural artefacts to wide audiences and invite them to contribute to interpreting them
Promote new ways of gathering and disseminating institutional knowledge.
Promote the use of open cultural heritage resources, promote reciprocity as a motivational factor.
Will be able to combine materials from several repositories in their research
Learn to accept non-academic resources and sources
Promote the use of geographic materials in (Humanities) research
Contiue hosting and developing MapWarper
Have an accessible tool for georectifying in Wikimedia
Volunteers, amateur historians, maps buffs
Have access to easy geo tools
Contribute to open repositories while working
There will be richer data that will be expressed in applications, remixes, productions and studies for education, planning, leisure, business, communications and is available for further study and reuse.
Labour-intensive work to geolocate maps can be shared with volunteers
Unlock data on old maps and documents more rapidly
Allows initiating public open crowdsourced projects that will benefit wider communities
Data can be used by other types of projects
Connect a variety of tools in the same open “maker space” (a website or a toolpack)
- Tools for images
- Use Wikidata to store historical data for places
- and more
Developers, companies, research groups, governmental organizations
Enables collaborative historical research, builds upon collected resources from repositories all over the web
Creates a space and tools to access and enrich open historical geographic documents from different sources
Creates a true cultural Commons where mutual resources are used to benefit all.
Volunteers, amateur historians, maps buffs, civil service professionals
Remixing, recontextualizing, researching for a variety of purposes.
Returning enriched data that benefits many other purposes
Structured data for Commons
Bridging between OSM/OHM & Wikimedia
Interconnect materials across projects based on time and location
Be able to visualize historical things around one’s location
Be able to investigate the knowledge spheres from the first person perspective – here, me
(Re)create a sense of place for education, travel, research, time-travel... Strengthening cultural identities.
Develop Metapipe transformation tool
Connect wit GWToolset and the new IEG upload tool project
The metadata enhancement tool Metapipe
Uploaders: GLAMs / Wikimedia volunteers / chapters
Help make organizational metadata suitable for several open repositories and reuse previous transformations made by the users
Provide same data to different repositories: Commons, Wikidata, Flickr, Ajapaik, Mapillary will help synchronizing between them.
Make opening content default practice for GLAMs.
Users of the uploaded objects
Make more use of metadata recorded with the archival objects when it is well formatted.
Allows rich connections across repositories.
Make the maps findable, connected, allow reuse.
- Map template
- Template conversion gadget
- Map display for articles
Find missing parts in bringing data to Wikimaps and back
Make data usable for Wikimaps and make data produced and linked in Wikimaps usable for Wikimedia
Is needed to create a new interface
Makes the Warper widely available to applications and its own user interface
Warper usable by 3rd party applications
Decoupling Wikimaps application parts: UI, control point interface, cropping, transformations etc.
Makes it easier for developers to contribute to the codebase
More up-to-date features will be implemented by developers
Contributes to the vitality and sustainability of the project
New Wikimaps user interface
Is needed to make using the tool attractive and easy to use
Makes the Warper widely available for volunteers
Enable OHM with Commons maps
Historical mappers at large
A way to get information from maps, names, vectors, change
This is a resource for WIkimedia and other research
Identification – Design – Implementation – Completion/Follow-up
