colors for locator mapsEdit

Hi! Please take a look at your perfect toolbox File:Toolbox SVG locator maps (location map based)-en.svg

Almost every color there is slightly different from its html-code in the right column. So I'm stuck on which one to use. Please do make some corrections.

And one more question. Your color set looks really better then colors from File:Maps template-en.svg. How do you think, is this a good idea to use your colors for location maps too? I'm going to create a lot of maps for each region of my country. Some maps are "location" and some are "locator". It looks odd for me to use two sets with almost similar colors in this case. --Yakiv Gluck (talk) 06:44, 28 February 2018 (UTC)

Color template: Yeah, maybe colors are off. It's either due to my inferior handling of Adobe Illustrator or YUG's edits. Can't tell. That's no template that was verified by any of Wikipedia's groups (like graphics/map workshop) anyway. I only made it as a base for further discussions with YUG. I think YUG wanted to use this as a starting point for future standards that are discussed among a larger group of Wiki cartographers. For the most part, my locator maps colors should be like in File:Positionskartenerstellung_-_Signaturvorlage.png. Red ain't standardized. Stick close to either the html-code red or the red of the red-colored objects in File:Toolbox SVG locator maps (location map based)-en.svg. That's close enough.
File:Maps template-en.svg vs. File:Positionskartenerstellung_-_Signaturvorlage.png: I'm sure there's even more schemes in other languages. As far as I can recall, this was discussed among German, French and US map map workshops. These groups didn't come up with a joint design. I can't recall why. I guess both color schemes have disadvantages and advantages. It's hard to tell which color scheme is more popular (or will become more popular) within Wikipedia. My now kind of popular locator maps are based on the German/European/non-French color scheme. But I certainly don't want to undermine the US-design. If you want to discuss this issue further, please ask the guys in the different map workshops.--TUBS  07:55, 28 February 2018 (UTC)


Hallo TUBS,

vielen Dank für Deine vielen hochwertigen Karten Indiens. Hättest Du eventuell Valenzen, die Karten auf den neuesten Stand zu bringen und den seit 2014 existierenden neuen Bundesstaat Telangana zu ergänzen? Danke und viele Grüße --Furfur Diskussion 11:16, 7 April 2018 (UTC) Ist schon auf meiner ToDo-Liste. Komme aber zur Zeit kaum zum zeichnen. Kann also etwas dauern...--TUBS  11:40, 7 April 2018 (UTC)
