African coloniesEdit

Article(s): es:Congo Belga, es:Protectorado francés de Marruecos, es:Colonización francesa de Argelia and the respective article in each language.

Hi, do you can do a map of this three colonial territories, in the case of the Belgian Congo it exist one but it has a very lower quality.--Fr2002 (talk) 21:52, 10 June 2017 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

@Fr2002: I think you will have to explain a bit more. Do you want one map were those three areas are highlighted? What type of map? What is the over all area of that map? and so on. Please ping me, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:24, 21 March 2019 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: Sorry for taking so much time, if I´m not wrong its a "SVG locator map", I repeat, if I´m not wrong. Thank you

Biome of AustraliaEdit


en:Mediterranean forests, woodlands, and scrub
en:Temperate broadleaf and mixed forest
en:Tropical and subtropical dry broadleaf forests
As per these sources ([1] - or jump to its map link - and [2]), it is quite clear that most of eastern Australia, besides a few spots, are not under the temperate forest biome. Sydney, for instance, mostly has dry sclerophyl and a few wet sclerophyl places, just akin to Adelaide and Perth. Therefore, it will be more appropriate for the region of Sydney to be under the Mediterranean biome. Furthermore, as you can see from these maps I provided, there are small pockets of temperate and subtropical forests to the north of Sydney. Also, the eastern portion of Melbourne is also dry sclerophyll, meaning it should be under the Med biome as well. I would hope that these are amended, as the original maps are rather fallacious and misleading. Thanks. --Meganesia (talk) 10:07, 24 February 2018 (UTC)

@Meganesia: I will help you but you have to be more precis, I have zero knowledge of this. Tell which map that should be edited and from which source and what to edit. Don't explain a lot that I don't need, please ping me, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:31, 17 March 2019 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: Sorry for the late reply. I didn't realise that I had received a response -- Is this case not open anymore? Anyway, both maps should be edited. On the temperate rainforest map (green-coloured), remove the colour over the Sydney and Melbourne region. On the Mediterranean forest map (brown), colour in the Sydney and Melbourne region as they have sclerophyll forests (which are a Med type, NOT temperate). Unfortunately, one of the source pages is now dead. So you can only base it on this one. If you are still confused I can provide you with an illustration (on how the envisioned maps should look). Just let me know. --Meganesia (talk) 03:37, 24 February 2018 (UTC)
@Meganesia: Now there are two drafts for you to check.
Feedback thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:09, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

Location maps NorwayEdit

Sortland, Kvæfjord

@Jon Harald Søby:, @Marmelad: These maps (and possibly others?) need to be updated. Godfjorden in Kvæfjord became part of Sortland in 2000. Blue Elf (talk) 19:52, 25 May 2018 (UTC)

  • Comment: Where is the source? I don’t see mention of Scotland in either article.
  • Comment: The gradient is confusing, nonstandard, and unaesthetic. A lot of locator maps for Norway will correspondingly need to be changed. –LaundryPizza03 (d) 05:55, 16 July 2019 (UTC)

Metrication by yearEdit

Article(s): Metrificación, Sistema internazionale di unità di misura and many others

Update map and friendly coloring
A lot of work here. It is supposed to be the "replacement map" for metrication pages; nevetheless it has a lot of issues. There are no South Sudan boundaries; the color palette isn't the best for visually impaired people. I'm not good at all at Perl and similar, could you help me? The palette is shown in the second image.--Carnby (talk) 18:04, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Map of the 4th Ukrainian Front advance during the Nikopol–Krivoi Rog Offensive 1 to 8 February 1944Edit

Article(s): en:Nikopol–Krivoi Rog Offensive

I would like an English version of the map using NATO military symbology. Additionally this will serve as a replacement for the original file which could be deleted as not public domain. I will provide translations and help with what symbols should be used to graphist. OpenStreetMap can be used for the source terrain. --Kges1901 (talk) 22:38, 19 November 2018 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

@Kges1901: I could help you but first I would like to know what kind of map you want, example a topographic like the first one or other? Please ping me, thanks--Goran tek-en (talk) 16:08, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: I would like a political-style map that shows terrain features as elevations are not shown in the source map. Thanks, Kges1901 (talk) 16:15, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: I'm sorry but I don't understand, if there is elevations and terrain to me that is a topographic map like this.
  • If that is not what you mean please link to a map of the kind you mean.
  • I can't see/understand which part the original map is of the source map, remember I know nothing of this subject. Please provide screen print with a rectangle on it (or some other way) showing the area you want, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 17:43, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

  Request taken by Goran tek-en (talk) 17:43, 21 November 2018 (UTC)

Extended content
@Goran tek-en: I would like all of the map (the entire map) that is linked. Apologies if I wasn't clear, a topographic map is suitable. Kges1901 (talk) 18:10, 21 November 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Is this the correct area?, and at OSM there are 4 different types of map, which do you mean? --Goran tek-en (talk) 12:02, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: I would like a standard map. here is the link to the square I drew with google maps that provides the area I would like to be on the map. Kges1901 (talk) 14:15, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Thanks for that square it helped me a lot. Have a look this #1 draft. This is how it looks straight of, don't think about things sticking out or so right now. This is a moderna/today map with streets and other things, do you want me to remove something or add something, feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:45, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: The map is excellent, but the area has changed significantly between today and 1944. You should use File:4th Ukrainian Front situation map 1 to 8 February 1944 northern half.jpg's placement of bodies of water and compare it with the OSM map to obtain the 1944 location of the bodies of waters. Otherwise, the roads are generally in the same places now as they were in 1944. Kges1901 (talk) 16:26, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Is it correct that the water bodies was much more narrow/smaller and there where wetlands on the sides 1944? I want to know for sure because there is some work with that and the source map is not that clear, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 17:43, 22 November 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: Yes, the water bodies were smaller and narrower in 1944, and there were wetlands. Kges1901 (talk) 17:45, 22 November 2018 (UTC)

@Kges1901: When we graphic workers draw maps we try to follow those map conventions so that we have some similarity between the maps. I have now a new #2 draft for you to look at. It doesn't look like the OSM map because of the conventions I mentioned. Really there is nothing left of the OSM map, too much had changed. This is not the final version by far, and I have had to guess quite a bit as I don't really know what everything is on the source map. I would like to get the overall background more lively but I really don't know what it is. Is it fields, sand or what. You tell what you want it to show, give me feedback on the hole map. Any feedback goes, just tell me, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:27, 23 November 2018 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: The area that isn't built up or wetlands is steppe. I have added the place names I would like added to the map here (pardon the shifting of the background, that was accidental) The places with place names on them that you have in green are actually also settlements. Kges1901 (talk) 21:30, 23 November 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Was the steppe at that time divided into rectangular "fields" as it is on the OSM map of today, it actually looks like that on your linked source? --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:11, 24 November 2018 (UTC)
{{ping|Goran tek-en}] It was indeed divided into fields. Kges1901 (talk) 17:15, 24 November 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Two different drafts for you;
  • Spelling draft, this si for you to check the spelling as some were hard to see, also check if any more green areas should be settlements. The names are not in the final position or anything like that.
  • #3 draft, now there is a stepp background also, check everything and give me feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:50, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
  • @Goran tek-en: Spelling corrections: Apostolov to Apostolovo, missing Malaya Lepetikha (east of the Dnieper, north of Velikaya Lepetikha) and Alekseyevka (north of Kapulovka), Nizhinye Rogachuk to Nizhnye Rogachuk, Pervemayevka to Pervomayeka, Ustikalka to Ushkalka, Manovone to Ivanovonoye, Blagovesh... to Blagoveshchenskoye, Batki to Balki, Menchikor to Menchikur, Peskochina to Peskochino, Alekseyevika to Alekseyevka, Verkooe Tarasovki to Verkhne Tarasovka, imen Chkalova to imeni Chkalova, Grushovka balka to Grushevka balka. The only thing that should be inhabited instead of green is Balki. Kges1901 (talk) 22:51, 25 November 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Two different drafts for you;
  • @Goran tek-en: The base map is ok now. Troop positions can be started on now. Germans can be blue, Soviets red. For the map legend (key), the scale of the source map that I linked is 1:100000 or 1 cm of the source map is equal to 1 km. In the key, you can decide what colors represent troop positions on a given day. In the key, note that positions are at 07:00 on each day. In the source map, the key is in the top right corner. For instance, the first color to the right of "к 7.00-1-2-44 г" represents the troop positions of Soviet troops for 1 February 1944, and so on. Kges1901 (talk) 23:03, 26 November 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: There are so many different types of encircled areas, lines, squares etc and to me it's very hard to understand which type that shows what. Troop positions, battle lines, movements etc. It would help me a lot if you could mark out the different types and describe them on the map, hope that's OK, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:16, 27 November 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: Here is a key to the symbols. [5]. Thanks, Kges1901 (talk) 00:38, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Day 1Edit

@Kges1901: I do have problems to interpret the map so now I will give you 10 different drafts to check. What I want is to get all the different areas, lines etc correct before we start giving them the final look. The numbers below are the different days.

@Kges1901: This is a template that we use when we do military maps File:Template_of_Military_Symbols.svg, is those the symbols you want? If so you have to help me which I should use where.
Two different versions of drafts; 1G without gradient, 1G gradient. Do you want the units names like that? This is going to be really really complicated with all eight days on the same map. For my sake (no knowledge of those battles) it would be very good if we can take it day by day and then we look at the whole info and see what we can do, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:18, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: I agree with you about taking it day by day, so first I will upload a version that has the first day's German positions complete. (Here) The symbols I want are the ones on the chart you linked. I would like the map without gradient, because the regiments should be displayed using the "III" regiment unit size symbol with, for instance, for the 570th IR, 570 to the left of the box and the division number, 302, in this case, to the right. For the HQ locations, you don't need the text HQ to the right of the box because anything with the vertical line coming out of it is automatically an HQ per your symbology. Also, there should be no 'x' over Schorner and the HQ in Dudchino is a corps HQ so use 3 'x's as shown in the unit size chart. Kges1901 (talk) 19:49, 3 December 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: German day 1.
  • I have assumed that the brown lines are Geman but I'm not sure.
  • I have put small dots at the ends of the lines, it's much easier to understand where the start and end. --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:37, 5 December 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: Almost there with the Germans for Day 1. Only thing now is to change the number of 'x's above IV Army Corps to three 'x's - XXX as it is a corps. Kges1901 (talk) 17:26, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: German day 1 #2. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:53, 7 December 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: Here is a link showing the numbers that should be added for each German divisions. Attached is a link to the original map with the 1st day positions of Soviet units marked in. [6] Kges1901 (talk) 17:19, 9 December 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Day 1 German Russian. I don't know how to mark when it's two units, tell me. I don't know all of the abbreviations you use so if you can write it in full ones. If you can write text for German and then Russian on separate maps it would be great for me, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:42, 11 December 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: For two regiments you could put two regiment symbols next to each other and have the division numbers to the right of the box. RD = Rifle Division, RC = Corps. Rifle units are infantry. Units marked 'Guards' should have the abbreviation 'Gds' under the number. Kges1901 (talk) 21:44, 13 December 2018 (UTC)
  • What is GRD, and what symbol and unit type?
  • Within the green line on the draft, where should "Soviet 50th GRD" be, which line, area or what?
  • Day 1 German Russian-2. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:06, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en:
  • Guards Rifle Division - division - XX - infantry, use abbreviation 'Gds' below unit designation number to the left of the box
  • Lower right of your greeen-circled area Kges1901 (talk) 21:27, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Day 1 German Russian-3. --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:00, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: Excellent work. Comments for Soviet units: the 416th Rifle Division should be marked as infantry - you have used the mechanized infantry symbol there. The 50th Guards should also be north of the 416th. 34th Rifle Corps should have 'Gds' below the '34', and three 'X's instead of four 'x's. 32nd Rifle Corps should have three 'X's instead of four 'x's. 3rd Army (4 X's) should have 'Gds' below the '3'. Thanks, Kges1901 (talk) 23:35, 20 December 2018 (UTC)

@Kges1901: Day 1 German Russian-4.
  • To me 416th Rifle Division is marked as infantry, I have encircled it with a green line on this draft.
  • I know the 50th Guards should be more to the north, I did draw a grey line to show this but that was not really clear. I have now moved around the units to make more room. This means some of them interfere with blue lines and almost other units lines. If this is OK for you I will leave it like that, tell me.
  • 34th etc, this is were I don't have enough knowledge about how to show things. I assumed as there is a difference between units and HQ this also was valid for GDS. You have to help me with stuff like that and be a bit more specific, "both units and HQ" like that. I have never used those military symbols to this extent before so you have to help me.
  • 32 HQ, is it OK to have the vertical line upwards like this, not much space there? --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:36, 21 December 2018 (UTC)
  • @Goran tek-en: For the 32 HQ, could you decrease the size of the symbol instead? I'd rather that the symbols be slightly smaller than one of them have to be upside down. Kges1901 (talk) 12:39, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Day 1 German Russian-5.
Smaller HQ symbols. You didn't answer my other questions above. --Goran tek-en (talk) 17:54, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en:
The HQ symbols look much better now, thanks.
Apologies for my delayed responses. It's ok if the unit symbols overlap lines.
'GDS', the abbreviation for a Guards unit, should be standardized to 'Gds' - same for both units and headquarters. Other changes:
  • The HQ '5' infantry box and 'XXXX' should be '5 Shock' infantry box and 'XXXX'
  • The HQ '10' infantry box and 'XXX' should be '10 Gds' infantry box and 'XXX'
  • The HQ '9' infantry box and 'XXX' that is southeast of the 108 Gds should be '37' infantry box and 'XXX'
  • The HQ '3' infantry box and 'I' should be '3 Gds' infantry box and 'XXX'
  • The '96' infantry box and 'XX' should be '96 Gds' infantry box and 'XXX'
  • The '108 Gds' are a special case here - the place where they have 2 regiments (III) is at the beginning of the day, and there is a third regiment (III) moving up to the southeast, denoted with an arrow on the source map. The position with the dashed lines for the 108 Gds is the entire division (XX) at the end of the day. To show this situation, suggest drawing in the third regiment (III, infantry box symbol, and 108 Gds to the right of the box) at the beginning of the day with the box at the position shown in the source map, then with arrow heading towards the two regiments of the 108 Gds in the solid circled area on the source map. The two regiments should be shown by side by side boxes that each have III, infantry box, and 108 Gds to the right of the individual boxes. To show the position of the entire division at the end of the day (dashed circle area on source map), draw arrow from the 2 regiments position to the end of day position to show the movement, and keep the symbol you already have at the end of day position there. Kges1901 (talk) 18:30, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Day 1 German Russian-6.
  • Thank you for making the information structured, much easier for me.
  • I have also changed the line around the end position to another type, then we can show in the legend that this is at the end of the day. This is just a proposal, if you don't want it, just tell me. --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:39, 23 December 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: Some final comments on this day, before we move on to the next:
  • Your proposed change to the legend makes sense.
  • 63, Infantry box, XXXX should be 63, Infantry box, XXX
  • The '259', Infantry box, XX that is to the northeast of the 32, infantry box, XXX and to the northwest of 34 Gds, Infantry box, XXX should be III, infantry box, and '259' to the right of the box
  • The '59 Gds', Infantry box, III should have '59 Gds' on the right rather than the left of the box
  • The '18', Infantry, XX should be '118', Infantry, XX
  • The '2', Infantry, XXX should be '2 Gds', the Mechanised Infantry symbol in the template of military symbols, and XXX
  • The II, infantry box, and '61' to the right should be III, infantry box, and '61' to the right
  • The II, infantry box below that should be III, infantry box, and '61' to the right
  • The '230' infantry, XX that is next to the headquarters of '9', 'XXX' and infantry box should be infantry, III, and '230' to the right of the box. Kges1901 (talk) 13:49, 26 December 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Day 1 German Russian-7.
Now I have added the different names and a legend. You should check the names as I'm not sure for all of them. As you can see there is a lot of information just for the 1st of Feb. I think it will be hard to have all of the days in the same map, probably we have to make different ones... We will continue and then we will see. Goran tek-en (talk) 17:55, 26 December 2018 (UTC)--

@Goran tek-en: Thanks. Two final comments:

  • In the legend, change 'Russian' to 'Soviet'
  • For the 259th, I meant for my comment to apply to the other one. The '259' and 'XXX' should be changed to 'III', infantry box, '259' to the right of the box. The one that is currently 'III', infantry box, '259' should be 259, infantry box, 'XX'
  • All of the German units with the 'II' unit size symbol should have that changed to 'III' Kges1901 (talk) 22:47, 28 December 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Day 1 German Soviet-8. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:44, 29 December 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: Thanks. One last change: '259' should go to the left of the infantry box for the '259', infantry box, size symbol XX Kges1901 (talk) 14:46, 29 December 2018 (UTC)

Day 2Edit

@Goran tek-en: There isn't much change for Day 2. Here's an image showing new unit positions. Kges1901 (talk) 01:35, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

@Kges1901: Draft D2_G_S.svg. I'm not sure how we are going to show the different movements per day. Right now I do one new map/day as it will be to messy to have everything on one, how do you think about this?
Now some of the Soviet lines cross over German so I guess they should be drawn back but you have to tell me what/how. Also check the legend as this is for 2/2. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:12, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
  • @Goran tek-en: We could do separate maps for each day's positions, and have them combined into one gif for the article. The German lines should be drawn back to reflect the Soviet advance, as shown on the original map.
The XX, 108 Gds can be shown at the final 1 February position for the second day, as we don't need the first day beginning positions on the second day map. Accordingly, the legend should be changed to remove the end of day symbol. Kges1901 (talk) 23:36, 3 January 2019 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Draft 4th Ukrainian Front_D-2-2.svg. Day 1 the German lines were brown with blue behind to the weast/north, if there are lines for day 2 you have to show me them, I can't see any. I will right now just move the German troops and you will have to inform me. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:50, 4 January 2019 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: There are no German lines for several of the days. For the purposes of the map we'll just assume that the German positions are opposite of the new Soviet positions. Kges1901 (talk) 19:15, 5 January 2019 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Thanks, so what about my draft above? --Goran tek-en (talk) 17:48, 6 January 2019 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: The map is fine except that the icons marking the day 1 positions of the units that moved on day 2 (2 Gds, XXX, Mechanized and 50 Gds, XX, Infantry) should be removed.
  • The 'start of day 1 Feb' in the legend should be changed to 'start of day 2 Feb'. Thanks, Kges1901 (talk) 11:48, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Now I don't understand because in the image you linked to "Here's" there are 2 of each of those . So which is correct, your image or what you tell me now? --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:29, 9 January 2019 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: I have reconsidered my original opinion has having two identifical symbols for the same unit would be confusing. As a result the southernmost of the 2 Gds, XXX, Mechanized symbols should be removed. Kges1901 (talk) 02:15, 13 January 2019 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Draft 4th Ukrainian Front_D-2-3.svg. I just wanted to make sure I didn't do unnecessary work.
I did remove "2 Gds, XXX, Mechanized and 50 Gds, XX, Infantry" as you wrote that before and that made most sense to me, if not correct just tell me. I also made a change in the legend so the dates are in the same style. --Goran tek-en (talk) 12:35, 14 January 2019 (UTC)
  • @Goran tek-en: Your change with the extra box makes sense. Dates should be in the style '2 Feb. 1944'. I think we can move on to the third day after this. Thanks, Kges1901 (talk) 13:07, 16 January 2019 (UTC)

  • The (248, infantry, XX) position from 1 Feb should be removed as redundant.

@Kges1901: I'm sorry I don't understand. For me the base reference we have is Day 1. You are talking about original map but as I have tried to inform you, it's to complex for me to understand completely.
Comparison day 2 and 2.
  • Day 3: Added 416, moved 248 and removed it's previous line.
  • Day 3: Moved 54, 50.
  • So what you mean by sub units I don't understand. --Goran tek-en (talk) 11:51, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: Apologies for being unclear, but what I meant was the units marked in this image such as "Training (on left of box), II, Infantry, 54 Gds on right of box" and "Penal (on left of box), I, infantry, 54 Gds (on right of box)". Thanks, Kges1901 (talk) 01:47, 31 January 2019 (UTC)

@Kges1901: Draft 4th_Ukrainian_Front_D-3-3.
  • I don't know if sub units should be depicted in a special way.
  • I might have to many units there now, just tell me.
  • When you write info for me on the original map please don't write the smallest that smal. Can be hard to read depending on the background, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:13, 31 January 2019 (UTC)
  • Here is a zoomed-in version of the crowded area with the unit that was invisible on the larger scale version; 2 (on left), II, tank, 37 Gds marked in turquoise should be added.
  • The front line is marked by the forward most (westernmost or leftmost) lines that are brown on the outside and blue on the inside. The outer most icons (1, II, tank, 37 Gds), (3, II, mechanized, 6 Gds), (2, II, mechanized, 6 Gds)) need to be moved east (right) to reflect that, bringing them closer to Konstantinovka (Константиновка in the screenshot linked in the first bullet point).
  • If the above – showing the units with the size symbol II – cannot be done in the limited space available, I suggest that you create an inset map that shows a magnification of the "crowded" area in the upper left corner titled 'Frontline of the 2nd Guards Mechanized Corps at 07:00', then add the subunits of 2 Gds, XXX, Mechanized (what I mean by this is ((1, II, tank, 37 Gds), (3, II, mechanized, 6 Gds), (2, II mechanized, 6 Gds), (1, II, mechanized, 6 Gds), and (2, II, tank, 37 Gds)) there. The inset map would not have to include the (2 Gds, XXX, Mechanized) symbol.
  • If an inset map is created, the front line should still be close to Konstantinovka, but (1, II, tank, 37 Gds), (3, II, mechanized, 6 Gds), (2, II, mechanized, 6 Gds), and (2 (on left), II, tank, 37 Gds) do not need to be shown in the "crowded" area, and (2 Gds, XXX, Mechanized) should be moved forward to the point that is slightly northeast of Konstantinovka where the map in the zoomed-in version says '2 МК' in red letters.
  • Add "(-)" below 2 Gds in the symbol for (2 Gds, XXX, Mechanized).
  • Add "(-)" below 54 Gds in the symbol for (54 Gds, XX, Infantry).
  • After these are addressed 3 February will be done. Thanks, Kges1901 (talk) 00:29, 5 February 2019 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Draft 4th_Ukrainian_Front_D-3-4.
  • That was a tuff one, hope I got it all right.

  • 572, III, Infantry, 302 on right should be to the north of 138, III, Infantry, 3 on right

  • @Goran tek-en: The link for 5-4 is 404. Regarding the lines, I think that using the same color in this case is fine because those units stayed in the same place for the period on the map, so they didn't change locations. Kges1901 (talk) 18:46, 7 April 2019 (UTC)
@Kges1901: The link works anyway now (checked in incognito so no memory issue by me), it might have been some temporary server issue. It's not the color I mean it's the dashes. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:15, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Day6-1. I have drawn some black lines to show you what I have mentioned before. That the dashed line for the first day is the same as we use for areas (not front lines) and to me that is not correct. I think we should have another type of lines for areas after day 1.
  • @Goran tek-en: It is ok that it has the same type of line because those units (behind the front lines) did not change positions after Day 1 and stayed in the same place for the duration we have on the map. For the time being, you can upload what we have so far as I think it is adequate for the article that it will be on. Kges1901 (talk) 11:59, 1 August 2019 (UTC)

A have recently successfully nominated the article for GA, it is currently undergoing an ACR, and I hope to shortly submit it for FAC; for this the map need to be correct.

@Matthew hk: Why it should be changed to a jpg I don't understand. Svg is so much easier to edit and better in many more ways and there is always png versions created on a svg file.

@Goran tek-en:, it was due to an ip user keep on changing map on a lots of article. Some of the reasoning seem right, for example for "Pahlavi dynasty". But yes, i did not have source, just have the two jpg files. The ip did not even provide any other source to allow other people to follow up. Just common sense at that time was Soviet Union instead of Russia, is not enough. Matthew hk (talk) 18:17, 8 April 2019 (UTC)

Please could someone remove the subnational boundaries on Pakistan? The whole country now has bans in place so the subnational boundaries are no longer required. Thanks--DelUsion23 (talk) 07:42, 8 August 2019 (UTC)

Maps of FujianEdit

Article(s): Zhangzhou; Quanzhou; Putian; Fuzhou

In the File:Shannan mcp.png map and File:Nyingchi mcp.png map, we can clearly see what areas are claimed by the People's Republic of China. Those files are used on English Wikipedia's en:Shannan, Tibet and en:Nyingchi pages. That's an ethical and a fair way to represent a dispute/claim. There are four maps of the territories of the People's Republic of China that don't show this kind of 'claimed' or 'disputed' status, namely File:Administrative Division Zhangzhou prfc map.png, File:Administrative Division Putian prfc map.png, File:Administrative Division Fuzhou prfc map.png, and File:Administrative Division Quanzhou 3.png. I would like to request that some new but similar maps be created that would indicate more clearly what areas are in the Republic of China (Taiwan). The original maps should be used in the Wikiworld for the purpose of understanding the claims made by the PRC, but the new maps I propose would be used for displaying the situation as it is. I am not skilled enough to make these maps well. I think using something like the methodology used on the maps for Shannan and Nyingchi would work great. I recently encountered a similar type of problem on the File:Taiwan relief location map.jpg page. Thanks for any help or suggestions. (Original request was here:[9])

Members of Organisation of Islamic CooperationEdit

Change the colour coding for Northern Cyprus.
The map of the OIC countries has Northern Cyprus colour coded as as a member state rather than an observer state. Can Northern Cyprus' colour be changed from green to blue on the map, to reflect their actual status within the OIC? The sources for this change are already self contained within wikipedia; in the article and in the observer state section of the member states page for the OIC, however, the OIC website's members listing is here as an external reference.

Ottawa rapid-transit map needs multiple edits - File:Oc-transpo-rapid-transit-567O.svgEdit

Article(s): Wikivoyage: Ottawa

With Ottawa finally getting a subway/LRT system in September 2019, the Ottawa rapid-transit system map File:Oc-transpo-rapid-transit-567O.svg is both out-of-date and misleading. I don't have SVG editing software. The list of changes that need to be made is on the file's Discussion page. Could somebody with an SVG editor please make them? --Robkelk (talk) 17:02, 2 September 2019 (UTC)

I thought it is better to create a comlete new map. --Chumwa (talk) 16:03, 6 September 2019 (UTC)
@Robkelk: The tool is out there, Inkscape and it's free and open source, but it takes some practice. You didn't link to any information, you have to. We do graphic work, not research or gathering information, that is up to you as it's your subject, we have zero knowledge. So link to all of the nedded information and then we will see, thanks for your understanding. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:23, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

St. Wenceslas Prison (Prague)Edit

Hi, I would like to ask you for a favor: could someone of you please make a map with the ground plan of Svatováclavská trestnice (St. Wenceslas Prison, the only prison in Prague till 1890s, when Pankrác prison was opened) - or - could you teach me how to do it? The scheme is to see in this video: at 6:23. I promise to make a stub about the prison then in both cases. Thank you! --Jiří Janíček (talk) 17:15, 11 September 2019 (UTC)

@Jiří Janíček: First it would be great and so much easier for every one if you would use the "Make a new request" link at the top, this gives us all the code we need.
I might be able to help you but you will have to provide me with information/links/layouts/maps or whatever for the prison and tell me what kind of ground plan you want, how much details, what to include and so on, thanks. Please ping me. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:15, 20 September 2019 (UTC)

Location Map of United States Including Alaska and HawaiiEdit

Article(s): Multiple

A location map of the United States that includes both Alaska and Hawaii as inset boxes in the lower left corner. I searched the location map templates and, as far as I can tell, it doesn't exist. I don't know if this is possible given that there would be a large jump in coordinates to allow for the inset boxes. –Noha307 (talk) 02:07, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
