Dear all,

in september, I helped my hometown uploading pictures and small movies
for Wiki Loves Monuments.  The pictures are here:


... and the 26 videos are in the category that Maarten created: 


I would like to help the people from the museum further by enriching
these pictures with annotations.  One of my argument when "selling" the
project was: "It will be useful to see what pictures people really find
interesting... or even what *part* of a picture they are really curious

So I set up a small "clickmap" experiment with 12 pictures:


Click on a link, click on the detail of the picture you want to know
more about, this will be recorded and used for producing "clickmap" of
the picture.

You can check the clickmaps here:

A few questions:

1) do you think a generalization of this experiment for other pictures
   would be useful?

2) is it Common do have several annotations for the same picture?  Any
   "edit wars" here?...

Thanks in advance for any feedback!
