It’s time for another blog post in my Wikidata map series, this time comparing the item maps that were generated on the 13th May 2019 and 11th November 2019 (roughly 6 months). I’ll again be using Resemble.js to generate a difference image highlighting changed areas in pink, and breakdown the areas that have had the greatest change throughout the 6 month period. The full comparison image can be found here.
If you don’t know what Wikidata is, or what items are then give this page a read. This map shows all items that have a “coordinate location” as a light pixel on a black canvas. The more items with coordinates in a single pixel, the brighter that pixel. This map is generated using code that can be found here.
A year or so ago I decided to start making yearly posts reviewing one of my online list. I’m a bit late this year considering it is April already, but it’s been one rollercoaster after another during the start of 2020.
23,940 page views, up from 12,374 (93% increase)
16,276 visitors, up from 8,578 (89% increase)
11 posts, down from 25

It’s a shame I wrote less, but I did go travelling for 6 months of the year, so it makes sense.
I have been using Google Cloud Build for a budget project for roughly a year now. Cloud Build stores built images in a storage bucket which you are of course billed for. Within the first weeks of using it I realized that I needed some automated way to cleanup unused and old images that were built there.
At the time I had a quick search around on the web for something already implemented that I could copy, but I came up blank, and decided putting my problem off would be the best solution. I filed issue number 6 for my project and left it for future me.
Now it’s time to finally close that issue, and I hope others might also find the small bash script useful.
In 2019 I wrote a post introducing a tool that I created to add Exif data back to images downloaded as part of a Facebook information download. The tool allowed me to download and delete my uploaded Facebook images while keeping some of the useful data such as date taken. After some Twitter pressure I have finally released an updated and slightly fixed version, and it’s time that I wrote a updated guide to go with it!
What is Exif data?
Exchangeable image file format (officially Exif) is a standard that specifies the formats for images and tags used by digital cameras and other systems handling image files.
