GLAMs, Mediawiki Commons and mass uploads with GWToolset

GLAMWiki Toolset project is a collaboration between various Wikimedia chapters and Europeana. The goal of the project is to provide easy-to-use tools to make batch uploads of GLAM (Galleries, Libraries, Archives & Museums) content to Wikimedia Commons.

One problem for GLAMs is how to create a XML metadata file that is required GLAMWiki Toolset. I have been trying to figure out what is needed for that conversion from a GLAM perspective.

Blender script: Render Online Orthographic Tiles

This script renders 256*256 pixel tiles that can be used with Leaflet or OpenLayers.
In addition, it writes index.html for you so this is a sort of one-click solution. It uses a hosted version of Leaflet, so you don't have to download anything extra.
