Mass upload of historical pictures of monuments

The Church of Champmotteux

In July, Jean-Frédéric completed a mass-upload of 3.000 images of historical monuments in the Paris region, from the Ministry of Culture “Base Mémoire” and using open data from The upload was made using the GlamWikiToolset, which helped building French expertise of its workings and unveiled some bugs which were filed. A pre-upload alignment, one manually made by Léna and Symac, as well as an automatic mapping of communes codes to Commons categories using Wikidata, resulted in 9237 categories added to the files, and 99.3% of the files bearing at least two categories. Thanks to this upload we now have pictures for a few dozen monuments without any illustration before.
