Well, wouldn't it be helpful to reuse the monuments android app for this? It is set up for automatic updates, so you could have it change when WLM is no longer active to show you all monument articles in your area, not just monument images. Though it's fairly hard to text edit with a smart phone, it would help to show anomalies when you're out in the field, and some article <-> image links might be fixed with a simple photo-insert.

I wonder if something closer to Rich Farmbrough's route might help here? Would it be possible to use Geocodes to create a list of nearest articles and the photos we have for that monument? We might need to set a maximum distance of a mile. If we can then filter out articles that already have images I suspect we could get a list that would be sufficiently user friendly that we could put it in Signpost or put it in Teahouse or other newbie engagement fora. 

I used the Signpost to publicise the death anomaly lists a couple of years ago and that attracted enough editors to make  a big difference. But first we need a reasonably user friendly list where a high proportion of articles would benefit from one of those images.

I know, last year tool did have them clickable, but with so many
countries I didn't make an app to show them this year.
Maybe I should have linked it to the erfgoed api, but the output would
have been quite raw.

It wasn't intended as a complete solution, only as a way to provide "a
list of monuments that we definitely have images for".

As mentioned, the bigger problem is getting the article associated with
each monument (if it exists).
