We would somehow need to download all the csv files and put them in a
big table at the toolserver. It's probably not too hard to have a
program take the html page and look for all url's containing csv file.
For each file download it and insert it in a database at the toolserver.
Once we have this database we can compare it to the information we
already have about Switzerland and match items.
This is how I did it with the National Register of Historic Places. This
information is in the p_erfgoed_nrhp_p database at the toolserver
(server: sql). I wrote
for that. Could probably be adapted to work for Switzerland too.
here is a short video I made about Commons, WLM, and ideas on how
to reuse this content -- the purpose is to deliver some information
on Commons and WLM quickly, while suggesting local entities to reuse
this content for their own purpose.

Such a question. Ho to manage with monuments that are gathered in a
complex? For example in this
have 17 monuments numbered as " 285/1", "285/2" and so on. All of
are part of Bakhchisaray Palace. So the question is next - should we
operate with these object separate items (separate ID's) or we should
regard them as a one item (and common ID)?

I would like to share some photos taken during the Philippines' kick off
event of Wiki Loves Monument. I still have to come up with an official
release, but I thought you can already be privy to what took place, despite
an unexpected summer downpour 60 people managed to come plus our invited
guests the Executive Director of the National Parks Development Committee,
Vice President of the Heritage Conservation Society and Deputy Director of
Creative Commons Philippines (we needed him to explain what free license is
here with permission) we're taken by one of the attendees who is a member
of the 7,000-member strong "Bawal Mag-shoot dito" (It's prohibited to shoot
here), in protest of some government agencies' policies prohibiting
photography in public places where heritage sites are without paying a fee
of around $50, for Wiki Loves Monument we got them to waive these fees.

I'm Patricio Molina (a.k.a. [[User:Mahadeva]]), Deputy Treasurer of
Wikimedia Argentina. It's a pleasure being part of this list.
In order to finish my studies in Systems Analysis, I have to make a
proyect using the RUP framework or Agile, and with my fellow
group members we were thinking about doing something useful for the
Wikimedia movement. We have 14~16 weeks/iterations to complete at
least the first two phases ("Inception" and "Elaboration"), producing
all the documentation needed for its construction and deployment. All
the documentation will be published under a Creative Commons license
Because I'm particularly interested in WLM, we want to know if there's
something we can do related to this activity. Of course, this should
be related to software development (i.e.: tools for metadata, events
and volunteer organization, etcetera). Do you have something in mind?
I know - too many abbreviations! Considering the Wiki Loves Monuments
interest Open StreetMap, I was wondering if anyone involved in this is
going to the State of the Map conference in Tokyo this September. It is
basically their Wikimania and would be a nice outreach. It would be too
late to get anything done, but if we get a nice implementation going, might
be worth it in the long run.
