I don't think I'm able to make a bot to
automatically add the numbers
any time soon and we end up doing some manual work anyway so I
these three lists:
These lists contain the items from Alex his database (thanks for
that!) that are not yet in the monuments database. Would be nice if
people could help with adding these numbers. I just did Zug in
and that goes pretty fast with a list like this. Not all items are in
these lists because it's based on data from 2009.
English lists are currently filled with IDs.
There are two problems though. To explain them, let me call "lists" the
Wikipedia lists like
this one, and "database" the pages Maarten compiled (like
this one). Until yesterday, the database was daily updated, and the
items which had their numbers in the lists were removed. Consequently,
only problematic objects should have stayed in the database in the end.
(Right now, the English database is blank, but I hope this is just a
glitch, since we still need it).
1. Some items in the lists have duplicate or multiple numbers (IDs) in
the database. They are either really duplicate, or for instance the
building contains a museum, both are protected and have the different
ID, but physically this is of course still the same building. The record
is six IDs for the same object, this is more like an exception, but two
and three are common. Note that all duplicate items are still on the
database: Maarten's bot only recognizes one ID per object (presumably,
the first one). I put all the ID in the lists. However, this might be
not such a good idea generally, since the uploaders will take the IDs
from the lists, and if they code pictures of the same building with two
different IDs, Maarten's bot could have trouble identifying them. If
this is indeed a problem, we need to only keep one ID per object AND
make sure that this one ID per object is the same on English, German,
French, and potentially all other Wikipedia's which have lists. All
ideas on how to best organize this are welcome.
2. There were several items in the database which were not on the
lists, and I could not reasonably identify them with any objects in the
lists (I tried really hard). There are not so many of them, may be
couple of dozens for the whole country. On couple of occasions, I was
sure they are just plainly forgotten, and add them (they are easy to
spot since they have no coordinates). However, the remaining items,
which are still in the database, require an expert attention. They may
be just lost for whatever reason.
