Hi Diannaa, I have added references to the underlying map. Kind regards.
ALA logo on wiki pageEdit
I made the case for this overwrite before realizing I could just suggest the change to the original uploader. It boils down to vector > raster. Vector will look better longer and on more systems. Raster is limited and the current .jpg already appears riddled with artifact noise and degraded color.
Again, more links and info on the file's talk page.
Question on LicensingEdit
Hi, this template
|Photographs available at www.audiovis.nac.gov.pl are public domain or the owner of the copy rights is the State Treasury of Poland, represented by the National Digital Archive and which grant free of charge licence for free use of the materials on all known exploitation fields.|
suggests that images found in the National Digital Archive are public domain or the owner of the copy rights is the State Treasury of Poland and can be uploaded to commons. Is that a correct assumption? Meaning, am I a liberty to upload to commons any image? Do you know? Cheers MisterBee1966 (talk) 08:23, 11 April 2019 (UTC)
