CAMBRIDGE WIKIMEDIA MEETUP 46

When: Sunday, 18 June 2023, at 1pm-4:30pm

Where: 2nd View Café, 2nd Floor, Waterstones

20 Sidney Street In Waterstones, Cambridge CB2 3HG England

Preamble:An Optional Addition[edit]

Entrance to Lion Yard, Petty Cury. The library is on the first floor

As the Cambridge City Library in Petty Cury (7 Lion Yard, Cambridge CB2 3QD) will be open from 12 Noon, some of us will be seeing what material they have on local history before moving on to the venue at 1 pm.

Note: we are on the SECOND FLOOR of Waterstones on the raised level.

Programme[edit]

The meet ups are not formal discussions, so please add anything you might be interested in: presented that you would like to share:

IPCC report[edit]

Petermr (talk · contribs) led a discussion on "Transposing the IPCC Climate report to Wikibase (and maybe Wikidata)" [1]. Details and further discussion have been moved to wikidata:Wikidata_talk:WikiProject_Climate_Change/transposing_IPCC_report.

Wikidata photowalk[edit]

The proposed photowalk to photograph missing images for Wikidata (cmglee suggested a particular cluster on King's Parade) was cancelled due to rain.

Suffolk databases[edit]

Leutha (talk · contribs) led a discussion on "bringing together existing databases with examples taken from Suffolk." We discussed adding historical maps and geodata to Wikidata and OpenStreetMap. Edward (talk · contribs) explained the relationship between Wikimedia and OpenStreetMap foundations and recommended http://openhistoricalmap.org. The tool that cmglee said could overlay rectified historical maps on OpenStreetMap is https://warper.wmflabs.org.

Live stream with Oxford Meetup[edit]

Did not happen due to lack of projector and poor Internet access. Previous comment:

- How would this work? I'm also enthusiastic about including remote collaborators (mine are in NL, DE and IN). Presumably we have to have a central Zoom instance and join on local laptops (would there be a communal screen?) Petermr (talk) 11:14, 16 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Apologies[edit]

I didn't come as it's a long drive from London and I have some other commitments. So, I appreciate the notes above about what happened. The focus on getting specific things done is good and encourages me to come when I've more time. Andrew D. (talk) 10:07, 19 June 2023 (UTC)[reply]
