We need a mechanism to pass object location via url-parameter to the UW. How can this be achieved?
Object location are given in many lists - camera location cannot be given for unknown images!
There are some known workarounds (bots adding object location as extracted from the lists):
- Erfgoedbot adds object location to images assigned to WLM lists objects async (see T72437)
- Krdbot does the same for images in Austrian WLM lists objects. (kind of duplicate work for the Austrian monument lists in the WP:de)
But this does not cover all the lists.
example lists not covered:
(see the small camera icon = tailored upload button, taking coordinates from template args Breitengrad & Längengrad (= object location))
Passing object location via url-parameters lat & lon does not work:
- these are overwritten by Exif location (and thus get lost)
- if there is no exif location, lat & lon end in the location template, which is wrong
I tried a bit to pass object location differently:
https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vorlage:Gemeindebau_Wien_Tabellenzeile (using the UW acc. to the former campaign)
passing the object location is clumsy and it is put to a less optimal position inside the information template (should be below). I did not manage to put it after the information template with given UW parameters.
So what would be the proper solution (in case of lists like WLM):
object location can be passed by URL-parameters
camera location can be extracted from Exif data (or eventually given during upload?)
Both locations might be missing independently.
To not break the interface, I propose to add another set of lat / lon for object location and change the UW urls in the list templates accordingly.
