Redaction of this template

Each line should link to its local graphic lab.
E.g. the Spanish line should have a link to its Spanish Graphic Lab, and to its Spanish Map Lab, Spanish CoA Lab or Spanish Flag Lab.
If your wiki have no Map Lab, link to your main Graphic Lab/Map Lab.
If your wiki have no Graphic Lab, link to Commons:Graphic Lab School/Images to improve.


This template is to be use by ALL Graphic Labs.

  1. The 1st variable is the ISO code of your home wiki.
  2. the 2nd is the work type or topic ( image | coa | flag | map | ... ).
    After what, you have to:
    1. On Commons, create a template with the name of your Graphic Lab (by example "template:Kartenwerkstatt")
    2. Fit it with {{ Graphic Labisotopic }} e.g. {{ Graphic Labdemap }}
    3. From now, if you satisfy a request on the German Kartenwerkstatt, upload the file with the template {{Kartenwerkstatt}}


{{ Graphic Labfrimage }} (iso and topic without majuscule, for diagrams, pictures, etc.)
{{ Graphic Labrumap }} (iso and topic without majuscule, for all maps)
{{ Graphic Labitflag }} (iso and topic without majuscule, for all flags)
{{Translation possible}} can complete this template

In {{Image generation}} the transclusion can be done with gl (for "graphic lab", default is the English one) or g[l]=ISO 639-1 for another Graphic Lab,
together with the type (subcategory-specification s=m, s=f or s=c).
g[l]=c[m] or g[l]=commons or gc specifies Graphic Lab-Commons with its subcategories: g=c|s=m will therefore categorize into Map Lab-Commons.

As an abbreviaton the code value in column «I» may be used; in general (gb, gc, gd, ge, gf, gi, gj (gj for he, gh is reserved for hu), gl, gP (gP for Polish, gp is reserved for portuguese), gr and gw),
the subcategory-specification is needed for the diversification {c, f, m for CoA, Flag, Map - others are not diversified).

Note that {{Image generation}} provides several possibilities to express the same fact. Examples for the de-Wp, other Wikipedias similar:

Preferred and recommended is gd, plus the subcategorizing s= .
Preferred and recommended is gd plus the subcategorizing s=c (or s=eh for ecclesiastical heraldry)
Preferred and recommended is gd plus the subcategorizing s=m (or s=wm for world maps).

* Note: While gd leads automatically either to {{Wappenwerkstatt}} or to {{Kartenwerkstatt}}, for categorizing directly to Graphic Lab-de a workaround exists.
To categorize instead simply into Graphic Lab-de or its subcategories the pseudo iso639-1 code "g=gi" (German individual) can be used.
