Image copyright problem with Image:Swisstopo Bluemlisalp 50.png
The image Image:Swisstopo Bluemlisalp 50.png is used in this article under a claim of fair use, but it does not have an adequate explanation for why it meets the requirements for such images when used here. In particular, for each page the image is used on, it must have an explanation linking to that page which explains why it needs to be used on that page. Please check
- That there is a non-free use rationale on the image's description page for the use in this article.
- That this article is linked to from the image description page.
Nonfree image removal
I have removed the nonfree image because it fails several of the non-free content criteria. First, it is replaceable with a free map (NFCC1). If there are no public domain (i.e. very old) maps that use this technique, someone could ask a Wikipedian at the graphics lab to create a sample map that demonstrates the same technique. Furthermore, it fails NFCC8 - it does not significantly increase readers' understanding, more than words alone would. A reader should have imagination sufficient to understand what a topographic map with different colored lines looks like, even if they do not see one. Calliopejen1 (talk) 14:34, 3 November 2008 (UTC)
- I do not agree that using a map specially created for Wikipedia would be an appropriate replacement. I see a parallel in the non-free images of modern art that are used not only on articles about the artists, but also on articles about the techniques and styles. However, you do have a point about there being old out-of-copyright maps using coloured contour lines. It happens that the use of this technique goes back further than I thought: back at least to 1870. There is an example on the Swisstopo web site. Although the old maps have a slightly different look than modern maps, using an old one would better show the historical development of the subject. It may be allowable to use the example mentioned as a source for an image, but I think it would be better if someone can get a scan of a smaller section at a higher resolution, so that it is easier to see the individual lines. It would be good to include black, blue and brown lines in the sample. JonH (talk) 00:18, 6 November 2008 (UTC)
- It happens that File:Berninapass 1877 Siegfriedkarte.jpg was already available in Commons category Old maps of Switzerland. (I did not find it before becaause it is not in the Atlas of Switzerland.) JonH (talk) 09:53, 8 March 2009 (UTC)
In his map of central Italy, c.1502, Leonardo da Vinci introduced the cartographic convention of using color to indicate changes in elevation. See http://baltimore.about.com/od/events/ig/Walters-Art-Museum-Map-Exhibit/Leonardo-da-Vinci-Map.htm. Should this be included? PhilUK (talk) 21:44, 11 January 2011 (UTC)
Blacklisted Links Found on the Main Page
Cyberbot II has detected that page contains external links that have either been globally or locally blacklisted. Links tend to be blacklisted because they have a history of being spammed, or are highly innappropriate for Wikipedia. This, however, doesn't necessaryily mean it's spam, or not a good link. If the link is a good link, you may wish to request whitelisting by going to the request page for whitelisting. If you feel the link being caught by the blacklist is a false positive, or no longer needed on the blacklist, you may request the regex be removed or altered at the blacklist request page. If the link is blacklisted globally and you feel the above applies you may request to whitelist it using the before mentioned request page, or request it's removal, or alteration, at the request page on meta. When requesting whitelisting, be sure to supply the link to be whitelisted and wrap the link in nowiki tags. The whitelisting process can take its time so once a request has been filled out, you may set the invisible parameter on the tag to true. Please be aware that the bot will replace removed tags, and will remove misplaced tags regularly.

why not just "terrain depiction" or "terrain cartography"? ("mapping" may mean measurement or depiction; "representation" may mean storage or depiction; "relief" can be the emotion or the sculptural technique.) Fgnievinski (talk) 03:56, 8 June 2014 (UTC)
