Map of disricts.Edit

Hello. I need your help. You are the creator of File:Larnaca in Cyprus.svg. Can you create a map only with Larnaca area? If you can please use File:Cyprus adm location map.svg and not File:Cyprus adm (1960–1974) location map.svg. Or can you explain me how to do it? I can learn quickly.

Hi Xaris. I only do locator maps for national and 1st subnational levels. I'm afraid, that's enough work for a lifetime. Sorry. I am still struggling correcting some of my old maps - timewise at least.
For a nice overview map Larnaca, which - I assume - is supposed to show Larnaca's location, sub-entities, maybe towns and proper labels, I need more time, which I don't posses. For Larnaca every map is complicated by the political situation on the ground, which I'm not very familiar with. BUT: the map is very easy to edit if you want to keep it simple. Open in in Adobe Illustrator (or Inkscape), crop the image, recolor and label it. You may also ask Wikipedia:Graphics Lab/Map workshop. They create doing tremendous maps. Male sure to describe your map request concisely--TUBS  09:26, 12 October 2016 (UTC)

I have tried but the result is not good. File:LarnakaDistrict2.png. Please see el:Σούπερ Λίγκα 2006–07#Συμμετέχοντες. They have a full map of Greece with all the teams. There are too many in Attica area, so they only give a list of the teams in the first map and have a more specific second map to show where each team has their stadium. That's the only thing I want to do for Cyprus Districts, especially for the city of Larnaka. Xaris333 (talk) 09:59, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

That would be a simple location map for the Larnaca region like in [1]. Generally, I don't do location maps and corresponding templates (template is needed to display the pinpoints). The map needs to be cropped and recolored (get away with the red basically). And one needs also the geogrpahical coordinates of the margins. These must be put into something like [2]. Please ask NordNordWest if he could draw a map. He has great experience with location maps and templates. --TUBS  10:18, 13 October 2016 (UTC)

administrative divisions mapEdit

Hi. Can you please explain to me how do i translate one of these into hebrew? I translated San Marino but then when i put it into a imagemap it doesn't work properly.--Mikey641 (talk) 19:52, 15 October 2016 (UTC)

Imagemaps are tricky. Basically, you need to use and adapt the source code (esp. the coordinates) from [3]. There must be an equivalent template for the hebrew wikipedia. I don't know how this works in the Hebrew wikipedia. Maybe you have already have found the template where to paste the code (my Hebrew is not existant, but I understand that you already have defined clickable areas somewhere). Anyhow. Replace all links (the german and italian one's) in the code with the appropriate Hebrew labels and links. Then use your map. It looks good as far as I can tell. Your file is 610*512. Unfortunately it's supposed to be 837 × 997 like in [4]. Maybe you have resized the map? Thus you need to resize it again. Then, it should work.--TUBS  21:14, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
OK so basiclly I've coopied the code from the german imagemap (This is the template) . I didn't resize the map, that is exaclty the problem... all i did was:
  1. Wrote the hebrew names
  2. Put them above the german names
  3. Then I pressed "create outlines" (makes the text into a shape)
That's it.Am I doing anything wrong? Thanks--Mikey641 (talk) 10:34, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

Your imagemap works with [5] and File:Acquaviva in San Marino (+pop areas).svg. That's very good. The latter pic is 837×997 pixels (take a look at the pic's version history below). The imagemap only works with pics having this size. So you must resize File:San_Marino_(+pop_areas),_administrative_divisions_-_de.svg to 837×997 pixels. Now, for whatever reason, it's 512×610 pixels. That's why the imagemap doesn't work with this pic. --TUBS  18:41, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

Well, I don't know how to change the size... When I'm in illustrator it the size is 837×997 but when i save it's small so i'm just gonna stop trying.--Mikey641 (talk) 10:55, 17 October 2016 (UTC)
You really want to give up? It's not that hard. Easiest way is perhaps to take again my map, copy the Hebrew labels and let them replace my latin characters. Save it without messing around with the image size. You should be all set. --TUBS  10:09, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Tried again, same result. There is probably a problem with my illustator.--Mikey641 (talk) 11:09, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
I re-sized File:San Marino (+pop areas), administrative divisions - he - colored.svg. Don't know what happened with your Illustrator. NNW 11:30, 19 October 2016 (UTC)
Thx. Both Illustrator and svg-code are one of mankind's last mysteries. --TUBS  11:33, 19 October 2016 (UTC)

@Mikey641:: I (maybe) found a solution for the scaling issue. Select a) "use artboards" checkbox when saving and b) uncheck "responsive" in the svg options menu when saving. Cf. --TUBS  10:12, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Yay. just seeing it now. thank you--Mikey641 (talk) 19:36, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Thank you for creating all the locator maps and labeled maps!! (btw:I don't know why is the title on hebrew) Mikey641 (talk) 10:36, 16 October 2016 (UTC)
Thank you. Hebrew letters look wicked fancy. --TUBS  18:44, 16 October 2016 (UTC)


Hey. Can you update the Botswana Maps I just noticed that NNW created a new map with a new district (the file)--Mikey641 (talk) 19:35, 28 November 2016 (UTC)
