Wikimedia Commons is a database of freely usable media files with more than 32 million files. As of August 2016, total size is over 84 TB (check).

Archiving process

Tools

How-to

Download the script and the feed lists (unpack it, it is a .csv file) in the same directory. Then run:

  • python commonsdownloader.py 2005-01-01 2005-01-10 [to download that 10 days range; it generates zip files by day and a .csv for every day]

Don't forget 30th days and 31st days on some months. Also, February 29th in some years.

To verify the download data use the checker script:

  • python commonschecker.py 2005-01-01 2005-01-10 [to check that 10 days range; it works on the .zip and .csv files, not the original folders]

Tools required

If downloading using a very new server (i.e. a default virtual machine), you got to download zip (Ubuntu: apt-get install zip)

Python should be already installed on your server, if not then just install it!

Also has a dependency on curl and wget, which should be installed on your server by default...

Volunteers

Please, wait until we do some tests. Probably, long filenames bug.

I'm going to file a bug in bugzilla.

Uploading

UPLOAD using the format: wikimediacommons-<year><month>

E.g. wikimediacommons-200601 for January 2006 grab.

If you can, add it into the WikiTeam collection, or else just tag it with the wikiteam keyword, and it will be added in later on.

Other dumps

There is no public dump of all images. WikiTeam is working on a scraper (see section above).

Pictures of the Year (best ones):

Featured images

Wikimedia Commons contains a lot images of high quality.
