We could have a micro-contribution tool which enables volunteers to correct most of the depicts claims which have been entered as structured data while uploading images on Wikimedia Commons by hand or other tools.
A significant part of structured data has been entered through other applications(tools) which have been developed to collect structured data for the images on Commons. Though this is a fast way to collect structured data, we realized that in tools like ISA, where campaigns are organized and the participants will have prizes as top contributors, this may push some participants to enter ‘wrong’ or ‘unclear’ information which needs to be verified.
It may not be clearly outlined how the structured data team plans to handle the issue with redundant, unclear and out of topic structured data. The verify-SD tool proposes a manual way for interested volunteers to help double-checking the data which was entered as structured data.
This tool will be a simple application which will work on both web and mobile(so to say mobile first design). Users will be able to search Wikimedia Commons categories which they will desire to work on and then the images in this category will be displayed to them asking them questions about the things they see in the images with emphasis laid on the depicts statements which have been added to the images. All the user has to do is click ‘YES’ or ‘NO’. Upon clicking ‘Yes’ We retain the depicts claim and ‘NO’ means we remove the claim.
Current state of affairs
After a quick look around the such tools which has been development to address this need, I couldn't find one. Therefore, it is still under investigation to see that such tool has not been developed by the Structured Data Team or by Volunteers in the Movement.
The first version of this tool should be launched at the end of the said program, then full usage begins from there. The project will be managed on Phabricator and project code will reside on Gerrit. The tool in question will be hosted on ToolForge.
