Needed to link Commons files to data that was used to generate them, if we hold it.

Also, in georeferencing, needed to identify which gcps file was used to generate a mask file. Jheald (talk) 09:21, 17 August 2019 (UTC)

  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - Commons also has .map files in the Data: namespace, and i could imagine they might get more types in the future. Wouldn't it be better to rename this to 'based on Commons data file' and allow any file available in the Data: namespace? Husky (talk) 11:25, 15 January 2020 (UTC)
