  • Pavllo river name corrected (in all versions). Thanks. Sting 17:26, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
  •   Oppose for now. First of all this is a nicely done map. The reason I'm opposing is because I would like to see it improved before supporting. Here are some suggestions: (i) The level of cartographic generalization is too high, meaning that for this scale the detail is not enough. If we look at the map in the 1:1 size, it looks quite empty; (ii) only a few symbols are explained in the legend; (iii) no need to put the units in every number of the elevation/depth scale. Better to have a title like "Elevation/depth(m)"; (iv) rivers have no names; (v) in the image file the nominal scale of the map (corresponding to the 1:1 size); (v) The map projection should be indicated in the map. Sorry to be so hard to please. - Alvesgaspar 15:34, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
    •   Support - After the changes, though I still insist that this is not the normal (or the best) way to present an elevation/depth svale - Alvesgaspar 16:47, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
  • How do you think it should be ? Sting 21:28, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Just remove all "m's" and put "Meters" on top of the scale - Alvesgaspar 09:08, 31 October 2007 (UTC)

  • I added the few creek names I had and completed the key. About the elevation/depths scale, I made the choice to show it this way as it is more international and doesn't need a translation for each language. The map looks empty ? For the continent, yes, as it is a map of Corfu island so I concentrated on it (many times, the maps through the Web don't even represent the continent). Also, the data I was able to get about Albania is very poor. I also added on the description page the approximate scale for an equivalent accuracy compared to the commercial official maps.

  •   Support But Alve has some points (although I'd say that map would get cluttered if you labeled every river) --JaGa 18:15, 29 October 2007 (UTC)
