Track layout map[edit]

Does anyone have a track layout of the original Osterreichring and not the new A1-Ring? Zero76 06:30, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the proposal was no consensus to move this page, per the discussion below. Dekimasuよ! 14:01, 18 October 2007 (UTC)


Oppose. Moved or not, the missing redirect at Oesterreichring needs to be fixed. And, as it stands now, the article's missorting in Category:World Superbike racing circuits, which will need to be changed again if the move goes through. Gene Nygaard 15:22, 13 October 2007 (UTC)
Oppose. "A1-Ring" just refers to the period it was in use 1997-2003, sponsored by that company. If the circuit is revived, it will probably be under any name but "A1-Ring". -- Matthead discuß!     O       04:52, 14 October 2007 (UTC)

Track maps orientation[edit]

Seems a bit silly to have all the maps bar one oriented the same way. North = up? Chaosdruid (talk) 20:01, 9 November 2013 (UTC)

North = left (more or less). Correct orientation is the one used for the image in "Redevelopment" section, see "coordinates" on top-right corner of the article. I don't know why someone oploaded the first map with wrong orientation, but I uploaded on Commons this and this with a fairly correct orientation. If you want you can edit their orientation (and labels) and put them inside the article. --Micap (talk) 10:10, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
I'm the creator of last circuit maps. I don't know why, normally I'm using the correct orientation. I'll correcting the map immediately. Thx --Pitlane02 talk 13:34, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
I've update the actual map, but I'm not the creator of the older maps and I've no template, maybe I can help in the next month (at the moment not enough time)... Regards --Pitlane02 talk 13:51, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
I have, amongst other things, spent some time as a cartographic digitiser. The standard we used in those days was that if there was no compass on the map, it was considered as oriented with north=up. If the map was not oriented that way, then an arrow had to be inserted with the word "North" to show which way north is, relative to the map. Chaosdruid (talk) 17:36, 18 November 2013 (UTC)
