GLAMpipe is a tool for acquiring, manipulating and uploading media and data to Wikimedia projects. It has been designed to serve as a mass upload tool to Wikimedia Commons, but we are expanding it for use with data imports to Wikidata.

In this tutorial we will go through the use of the tool for both types of use cases: creating a mass upload of images and a data import to Wikidata.

The tool's first development phase will be completed by the time of WikidataCon. It is a good opportunity to discuss how to develop it further. It is possible to use the tool already, as a desktop app or an online app following the links below. You may also join as a test user with your upload project, contact Susanna Ånäs

What will attendees take away from this session?

People working with media or data imports will have a powerful tool to work with. Individual wikimedians may benefit from this as well as people working in partnerships, or the institutions themselves.
