Your feedback matters: Final reminder to take the global Wikimedia survey
(Sorry to write in Engilsh)
Geocode location is wrong! No, this one is correct.
I thank you for your good work in pointing out this problem in many pictures. However, for one file, File:André Schürrle Chelsea vs AS-Roma 10AUG2013.jpg you applied the tag after I had made the correction. It's not a very bad problem but would you like to describe the way you decide where to put the tag? Jim.henderson (talk) 02:19, 19 March 2017 (UTC)
@Jim.henderson: Thanks for appreciation and pointing out this one.I think this is a problem of software.My workflow is 1.Open Google Earth
2 see images from commons
3. If it seems location is wrong
4. Check the description minutely
5 After confirmation put the tag.
In this case it was still showing in Tibet in place of Washington DC in Google Earth. On that particular day I was working on Tibet. Hope you understood the problem. Regards.
@Thincat: In Himalaya two miles matters very much. I will correct the location. Thanks.
I do something similar, but less regularly.
- Find, in unrelated studies, a picture whose words say New York, Maryland etc, but whose coords say Central Asia.
- Google Earth to coords to assure it's wrong.
- See a few nearby roundels in Asian mountains.
- If the pictures show green cropped grass, or tall glass buildings, spend half a minute pondering other evidence.
- Reverse the +- sign.
- Revisit GE to see whether that gave a plausible position.
Your more methodical procedure is perhaps a bit safer, so I restrict myself to fairly familiar places. You could also add a step to see if the coords indeed point at Asia, but false positives like this are pretty rare and don't upset us old cat wranglers. Nice to know your methods; keep up the good work. Jim.henderson (talk) 00:41, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
I will include '# Reverse the +- sign.' wherever applicable,thanks for ur suggestions.
