User story: As an uploader of images, I want to remove geolcation data from my images, so that I can hide sensitive information like my home address or protected wildlife areas.
We have this:
There's currently no way for users to handle the geolocation data themselves. For existing images already on Commons, the removal of such data has to be done manually by an admin.
We want this:
Users should be able to control the removal of geolocation data from their images by themselves.
- For files that a user has contributed themselves, there should be a file page functionality/button that initiates the deletion of geolocation data from WMF databases (not the image itself)
- On UploadWizard and Special:Upload, there should be a clear option for users to strip all location data out of files about to uploaded so they are never on Commons with that data in the first place
- 3rd party upload tools should have the ability to indicate to WMF systems that files being uploaded from the tool in a specific session should have their geolocation data removed before being stored on WMF servers
