Integration of Flickr and Geolocation in Upload Wizard

by Ankur Anand for Wikimedia Foundation

My goal is to provide an interface which allows the user to transfer images from Flickr where the Upload Wizard extracts license and metadata from the images, converts the license into a Commons License Template and passes on metadata to the next step to generate corresponding WikiText. Second part of my proposal aims at implementing a JavaScript jQuery plugin which presents a map interface that can be manipulated to select a particular location and report that location in code, preferably as WikiText containing a Location template.
