Hi all;

Sure WikiLovesMonuments is an awesome project and it produces a lot of high quality images of notable cultural heritage.

But I will take this opportunity to remember a little known tool/project, Commons Coverage.[1] The motto is "Imagine a world in which every single free image is surrounded by other less than 1 km far away."

When you check country by country, you can see how much is still remaining.[2] If you zoom to low detail, you can see picture details.

Exploring the United States map[3], I have found a user who has been taking many pictures of roads and streets.[4] Or looking at Norway map, we can see that somebody took pictures while on a plane.[5]

Of course, this requires to attach coordinates to every picture you take, though improvements in technology is making this easier.

Time for a WikiLoveStreets or something at that scale?
