Missing coordinates in the PET scan you created for me

Sphilbrick (talkcontribs)

Thanks for the link to the PET scan. I started from scratch and was able to reproduce the one you generated for me so I am feeling some comfort that I know how to do that. I want the actual data in a way I can format it but I see that I can change the output format to either CSV or wiki, which should work for me.

I do have one question that I haven't yet figured out.

I see that for the entries don't have coordinates listed. I understand in the case of Air Line State Park trail because the article itself doesn't have coordinates which makes sense because it's a trail not a single location. I also get why the "List of Connecticut state parks" entry doesn't have coordinates.

However I'm puzzled to see that "Mianus River State Park" and "Haystack Mountain State Park" don't have coordinates. My initial thought is that perhaps the underlying article failed to have coordinates but they do. My second thought was perhaps the wiki data wasn't picking up the coordinates but in both cases they do. So I am now puzzled why coordinates don't appear in that listing. Any thoughts?

i'm in the dark also. that is the easiest thing i can do, to reuse an existing tool. i tried to do a VizQuery but totally flunked

there is also the listeria tool for making lists on english i.e. which you might modify to meet your needs

observation that both of those are redirects, a little UX bug

coordinates and wikidata are a controversial topic as you might see on commons. there are varying degrees of accuracy and meaning, which means lots of curation and consensus - do not know the accuracy of OSM, since it is user generated

I couldn't really think of other ways to list the collection than genre, but I suppose canvas vs panel and some other ones may work as well. I will expand the page to include more lists. Meanwhile I changed the query to include all subclasses of portrait as genre, so it will pick up the self-portrait and group portrait genres as well.

Slowking4 (talkcontribs)

yes it's all good, you could have a list for each genre, and then a final "not included in genre" - the null list will be the one with the missing images

saam has fewer portraits than landscapes and history paintings, the national portrait gallery (us) has the majority of the portraits, but they may have a re-org

this will be a major commons metadata cleanup drive, might as well organize it on wikidata

Jane023 (talkcontribs)

I hope they don't change the id numbers because that will be a pain to change unless someone gives us the concordance.

Slowking4 (talkcontribs)

no they tend to change the front end

sometimes they broke links but the id stays the same

but they are better now, and will archive

maybe also a sculpture list?

Jane023 (talkcontribs)

Sigh. Yes someone needs to start on sculpture. We have trouble modelling sculpture though on Wikidata still

Slowking4 (talkcontribs)

i feel your pain, having struggled with sculpture issues

in some ways smithsonian got penalized as early adopter as their items were uploaded with bad metadata, and the late arrival national gallery got the cleaner data ingestion.

genre still life ?

just looking to chip away at the null set

Jane023 (talkcontribs)
Slowking4 (talkcontribs)

well, the metadata is bad, will have to comb through and find them

and everybody likes landscapes more - the american propensity for awe,
