Canon EOS 500D or 1000DEdit

Hi TUBS, I noticed on File:2010-04-28 Gut Böckel, Rödinghausen 111.jpg that the category you added is for the 500D, but the exif is for 1000D. Any idea what happened here? Multichill (talk) 15:26, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

Checked that. It's a 1000D. Will correct that. --TUBS  13:28, 1 September 2020 (UTC)

RequestEdit

Hello!

Can you please create a map depicting the COVID-19 Outbreak in Fiji. There is a lot of information that you can get at COVID-19 pandemic in Fiji. It's up to you anyways, no pressure :-)

Thanks. KRtau16 (talk) 05:09, 4 September 2020 (UTC)

About this mapEdit

[1]. Thank you for explaining your approach. Yes, you are right about the complexity of de facto and de jure statutes. So: as a simple reader, I need to know, in a hand, what are the real sovereignty limits on the land (which can be marked by a continuous line, but finer than the borders recognized by the two parties) and in the other hand, what are the claims (which can be marked with a paler or dotted line). The current version of the map does not provide an understanding of "what is controlled by each country?". Cordial greetings, --Claude Zygiel (talk) 14:41, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

True. That wasn't my goal. A de-facto map is an entierely diffferent beast- De-facto Palestine doesn't exist.... However, for most contested territories I made various maps that show the situation from different de-facto and de-jure angels: Cf. e. g. Category:SVG locator maps of Pakistan (location map scheme) --TUBS  17:50, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

File:Taiwan Province in Taiwan.svg requires updatingEdit

Hi TUBS,
Thank you for your contributions to Commons. I noticed File:Taiwan Province in Taiwan.svg is out of date. The line should be drawn all the way well around Dongyin, Lienchiang; all other lines drawn this way. Also, Dongding Island is omitted. Could you update it? Thanks again. Geographyinitiative (talk) 19:54, 21 September 2020 (UTC)

Thx for telling me
  1. Line: No. No need to. Personal preference.
  2. Dongdin :that's Fujian Province (Source: Wikipedia)
--TUBS  07:43, 22 September 2020 (UTC)
1 Dongyin, Lienchiang 東引鄉 2 Dongding Island 東碇島 --Geographyinitiative (talk) 08:28, 5 October 2020 (UTC)
Couldn't you elaborate that any further? It's a bit annoying otherwise.
  1. That line around Dongyin is drawn like in File:Taiwan location map.svg. That's the only reason. I want to keep the design of the two maps aligned.
  2. Dongdin is not part of ROC's Taiwan province. That's why it's omitted. Why should it be colored red? Or do you think it's not depicted at all? Maybe, but that's again a decision made by the creator of File:Taiwan location map.svg. Presumably it's just too small? --TUBS  09:12, 5 October 2020 (UTC)

Shida Kartli in Georgia (Georgian view).svgEdit

Hello! According to the 2007 law of Georgia, a provisional administrative-territorial unit of South Ossetia was established. Please undo your changes. გიო ოქრო (talk) 19:04, 8 October 2020 (UTC)

Gosh. I love these letters. Looks incredibly nice. I can't read it though. Even if I could, my Georgian is a bit rusty.. Thus I can't verify it. The English WP says that it's a en:Provisional Administration of South Ossetia (which is different from an administrative territory). And in en:South Ossetia it is said that most territory of South Ossetia is still part of the en:Shida Kartli administrative region, although most of Shida Kartli isn't under Georgian control. Even here it's still as it was: http://gov.ge/index.php?lang_id=ENG&sec_id=227 I like to do my work evidence based. I'm not saying that you're wrong. I just want to be able to verify this before making major changes. Thx for your contribution though. I really appreciate it. Perhaps you could download your versions (see file history section) and upload them as a completely different map series. Suggestion: Xxx in Georgia (autonomous South Ossetia).svg. Then user can decide what maps to implement in the respective articles. --TUBS  08:55, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Shida Katli is only Gori, Kaspi, Khashuri and Kareli. See http://shidakartli.gov.ge/en/municipalities/index/2. Declaration of Governor: there are only 4 municipalities (You can translate it with online translator). en:Shida Kartli — incorrect. en:Provisional Administration of South Ossetia — it's article about administration, and ka:სამხრეთ ოსეთის დროებითი ადმინისტრაციულ-ტერიტორიული ერთეული — about administrative-territorial unit. This is interview of ka:ცეზარ ჩოჩელი (Tsezar Chocheli), former governor of Mtskheta-Mtianeti, where he says that Akhalgori was not in his governorate and was part of provisional administrative-territorial unit of South Ossetia. On this map Akhalgori is Mtskheta-Mtianeti. გიო ოქრო (talk) 11:11, 9 October 2020 (UTC)
Again, I'm not convinced. However, you could be right. This could also be due to my lack of understanding your language. My apologies. As long I'm not convinced I'd like to keep the maps roughly aligned with the respective Georgia location map SVG. Please re-upload your maps with a different name and try to exchange my maps with yours in the respective Wikipedia. That way local WP contributors don't feel hoodwinked into a mass edit via a major change in Commons. My recommendation: discuss this change openly. Don't try to trick your fellow co-contributors into new maps and don't start an edit war with me. There's no merit in it. I'm basically your ally since I promote the notion of different map series among which users then can chose. I did exactly that in Category:SVG locator maps of regions in Georgia (location map scheme). I don't try to force other WP users to use a particular map. Cf. COM:OVERWRITE --TUBS  11:52, 12 October 2020 (UTC)
I will upload, it's not a problem, but names of your files - (Georgian view) - is incorrect. It's not official view of Georgia. That is main problem. გიო ოქრო (talk) 19:20, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

That is the problem? Really? Why didn't you say so? What's a better name? I'll rename them all. That's just a file name. I couldn't care less. I'm neutral as Switzerland. I'll happily change the name if the names happen to push an agenda or something. PS: I did some research on the websites of the Georgian government and some of the Georgian regional administrations. Did you know that they have maps there that show local boundaries like the ones I've drawn? Funny - I know... --TUBS  19:51, 12 October 2020 (UTC)

"Why didn't you say so" — I think better way is edit your maps according to official view of Georgia. "they have maps there that show local boundaries like the ones I've drawn" — Please show me that maps. For example see map at the bottom of the page. გიო ოქრო (talk) 10:35, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
http://shidakartli.gov.ge/en/pages/index/10 --TUBS  10:41, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
These maps are incorrect. Look at Tbilisi borders. see regional map where Akhalgori is also Shida Kartli :)) There are only 4 municipalities in Shida Kartli. On that map municipalities of Eredvi, Kurta and Tigva are in Shida Kartli but according 2008 material declaration of Governor (before the war, when Georgia controlled teritory of Eredvi, Kurta and Tigva) he is state attorney in Kaspi, Gori, Khashuri and Kareli only. გიო ოქრო (talk) 15:21, 13 October 2020 (UTC)
You keep saying that. That's alright. It's just that I'm not convinced as long as I find maps like that. Thx for the discussion. Really appreciate it. Submit a naming proposal and I'll rename my files. Upload your maps as a new map series with a proper name and start from there. --TUBS  18:03, 13 October 2020 (UTC)

Карти громадEdit

Доброго дня! Ви все ще створюєте карти? Мені здається, що в майбутньому було б варто розробити карти об'єднаних територіальних громад на фоні нових укріплених районів, і напевне карти самих меж нових районів, адже ці нові, які зараз пропонуються у Вікіпедії не якісні. Карти ОТГ для Вікіпедії усе ж необхідні, адже це третя основна одиниця поділу України: Область - район - об'єднана територіальна громада.

I don't have time anymore to create extended map series. Usually, I created maps for the 1st admin level only. That was complicated enough.--TUBS  14:38, 24 October 2020 (UTC)

let's wait till the dust of war settles and new borders and checkpoints are erected. We don't know exactly yet who controls which area. Ultimately, Russia will issue maps where the new lines of contacts are shown and both Armenians and Azeris can't do much about this Russian decision. Plus, I'd like to coordinate my maps with https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File_talk:Azerbaijan_adm_location_map.svg. There seem to be ongoing discussions about some other minor issue which have nothing to do with the recent war. --TUBS  14:39, 4 December 2020 (UTC)

You want me to draw a map of Somaliland with regional borders? Well; I could dot that. But I won't do that. As I've told you, my threshold ends where recognition by other sovereign countries ends. These maps are hard to maintain anyway - I can't cope with all of those Somalilands, Donetsks and Transnistrias of the world. --11:44, 14 January 2021 (UTC)

File:Rimini in Italy.svg requires updatingEdit

Hi TUBS,
Thank you for your contributions to Commons. I noticed File:Rimini in Italy.svg is out of date. Emilia-Romagna and Marche boundaries changed on June 17, 2021 (Sassofeltrio and Montecopiolo municipalities moved from Marche to Emilia-Romagna) Could you update it? Thanks again. Fabio Bettani (talk) 12:41, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

Hellos. Thx. I know. This map series is in trusted hands of Italian users. My goal was to establsih a worldwide applicable and uniform design scheme for such national sub-divisions. Usually Italian map makers will adapt those maps. They have done so various times in the past. Italian borders change quite often - more often than in most European countries. I can't keept track of all those changes and don't have time to update all my maps. Trust in my fellow Italian colleagues. --TUBS  12:45, 17 June 2021 (UTC)

LandkreisgrenzenveränderungenEdit

Hello, in the last update of the following file: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Germany_(%2Bdistricts)_location_map.svg you wrote in the description, that some of the Landkreis Borders have changed in the last years. I thought it was only the merging in Göttingen that happened in the last years, but this page https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kreisreformen_in_Deutschland_nach_1990 lists quite a lot of changes. I'd like to ask how you would roughly proceed in updating the map if you had time? Would you put a satellite image from for example Google and draw the changes there or are there official sources that you'd consult? Many thanks in advance --Hi, future humans! (talk) 21:30, 14 July 2021 (UTC).

Hi. Yeah that's infinitely hard to keep track of. On county level, there are changes each year and it's not always easy to identify those who are really visible on such a map. I don't have the time to replicate every change. You mentioned one possible wiki-site where you could find such information. Another one is https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:WikiProjekt_Kommunen_und_Landkreise_in_Deutschland which gathers upcoming changes (the most recent being the incorporation of Eisenach into Wartburgkreis). Usually @NordNordWest: is extremly reliable when it comes to map updates. He made an updated version of File:Germany, administrative divisions (+districts) - de - colored.svg as of July 3rd. I bet he got the borders right. Usually it's best to update maps every couple of years based on the data provided by the government. See File:Germany (+districts +municipalities) location map 2013.svg for details on how to get this data and how to process it. You wanna use sth like this: https://gdz.bkg.bund.de/index.php/default/open-data/verwaltungsgebiete-1-1-000-000-ebenen-stand-01-01-vg1000-ebenen-01-01.html . This data is updated annualy. Please pay attention to the copyright situation (license agreements obviously have changed. It's now https://www.govdata.de/dl-de/by-2-0 . This new license seems pretty compatible with the usual Commons/Wiki standard licenses. I'm still not really sure if the license works for may original file the way I intended that.) Maybe even OSM has updated borders that you could import (but that's hard to verify - I don't really know how reliable OSM updates county borders). --TUBS  07:21, 15 July 2021 (UTC)

Hi! I really like your maps like File:North Rhine-Westphalia location map 05.svg and was interested to know what software you use to make topo maps. Thanks! — Berrely • TC 16:58, 17 July 2021 (UTC)

I'm too stupid to do that myself. Relief base map was provided by Alex. I'm not sure but I think he used Natural Earth or a similar GIS software. Plz read the file description where I explained details. Ask Alex. He may tell you. Or ask this question in German Wikipedia's "Kartenwerkstat" (English will do). That's where all your GIS related questions will be answered. --TUBS  19:02, 17 July 2021 (UTC)
