View it! tool development update
View it! tool has new features!
View it! is increasing its functionality with an advanced search option. Please consider helping the developers with language translation.
View it! is available across all Wikimedia projects and the developers have implemented localization for the user script. As of publication, there are now 8 languages supported, and you are invited to follow our step-by-step instructions to add additional translations to the tool in your own language.
View it! now has an advanced search menu. In advanced search, View it! users are able to choose from a dropdown list of properties to search by —"depicts" (P180), "main subject" (P921), and "creator" (P170)—along with an additional free text box and filters for Commons quality assessment and image resolution.
About View it!
The number of images displayed in a Wikipedia article is finite and highly curated by editors; through the tool, users will have access to the entire catalog of images on Wikimedia Commons (particularly those utilizing structured data), increasing discoverability and giving editors and readers a more broad experience. Our hope is that adoption of View it! will encourage contributors to utilize Commons more readily and include structured data with uploads.
Please consider installing View it! or signing up for monthly updates!
Thank you GLAM community for supporting our efforts and providing feedback as you have explored the tool. We really appreciate it. The Wikimedia Foundation generously funds View it! through the Structured Data Across Wikimedia project.
