Aerial Pics with the D 7100[edit]

Hi and thank you for your comments. I am really old school and still have film bodies that are now really dusty, but I do tend to rely on auto, mostly when I am also flying at the same time. ;) I always shoot manual on paid gigs, but like these last pics of NY, I was also learning how to fly the helicopter, at the same time. Multi tasking at its best. I need to setup when doing aerials for bracketing, that way I can pay attention to flying, and have more to select from at the edit bay. [1] enjoy the flight! Cheers... talk→ WPPilot  07:04, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

@WPPilot: Sweet video! Pretty cool you're learning how to fly a helicopter, you could get a GoPro to capture cool angles and views in a copter (you may have used a GoPro). Best, ///EuroCarGT 07:15, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
Yup I have three of them. Cockpit overload is more then 2 cameras to deal with. From time to time I will run more in Fixed wing aircraft but rotary aircraft are busy and not as forgiving as fixed wing. That video was shot with the Black +. talk→ WPPilot  18:56, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Alexander Liholiho[edit]

Hello. Can you help me with cleaning File:Alexander Liholiho, Heir-Apparent of Hawaii.jpg up to just the the figure with the signature and an aethisically pleasing amount spaces around edge of the cropped image? And save that edit to the upload history and crop away the signature in the end.--KAVEBEAR (talk) 22:13, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Nice. I started to do this not knowing you'd be so quick.--Mark Miller (talk) 22:49, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Rodent map[edit]

Thank you for making this: File:Map of the Gray-tailed vole in the northwestern region of the United States.svg. The article made it through DYK and will be a GA contender. I put up a request at MapLab for similar animal, (Microtus oregoni) (creeping vole), but have not seen any replies. If you have time, here is the GlobalSpecies data. I'm looking into learning how to convert these myself and reviewing the information on the map that you made on commons. Any guidance on how to get started? I use a Mac PowerBook at home, with InkScape installed, but am just learning how to use it. thanks! Gaff (talk) 04:50, 22 December 2014 (UTC)

@Gaff: Well the first thing you'll need is a vector illustration program. Inkscape (I use it), Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw are some examples. Next up you'll need to find blank map with a compatible license that could be uploaded on Commons. What I do, is find a blank SVG map. For example if I want to do a map on Oregon, I would go to c:Category:Maps of Oregon and look at subcategories for a good and easily plotted SVG map, for example File:Blank Map of Oregon.svg. Then I download it and open it on Inkscape, using the bezier curves and straight line (the button looks like this) tool to draw out the overlay for the map and then crop if necessary using the Object > Clip > Set, then save it. This may sound confusing but doing everything is quick minus drawing points for the data part. Best, ///EuroCarGT 16:46, 22 December 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. Gaff (talk) 02:58, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
Also, I will try to do the map. Just not now because I only have an iPad to use. ///EuroCarGT 03:28, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
I made a crude map for the creeping vole using Microsoft paint on my PC at work. It is on the page. I made another with InkScape, for the Western red-backed vole, which is a little more polished. I'm still trying to get the hang of InkScape and it is slow going on my old(er) MacBook laptop at home. Time for a computer upgrade! Gaff (talk) 05:25, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
Nice! The western red-backed vole map looks good, it seems to me you used 2 colours? Anyways, looking at the PowerBook, that is quite old, if you want to continue making maps, you would need a better computer cause larger maps will use more RAM, I still have an old iMac in my basement, runs well but its laggy! ///EuroCarGT 16:21, 23 December 2014 (UTC)
Myodes californicus distribution map
When drawing out the overlay, is there an easy way to layer the shape over the map and trace it, or just work free hand? I tried making a bitmap tracing and had some luck on another map, but it was time consuming and not very satisfactory. Gaff (talk) 22:09, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Well for me, I work free hand to make as accurate to the map source. You could make the shape on a new file and once done, copy and paste it to the vector map document and resize it if needed. ///EuroCarGT 22:33, 23 December 2014 (UTC)

Fixed the two color issue and added a larger map for perspective in the corner...
I'll return to my computer soon, so I'll try to fix that. ///EuroCarGT 01:12, 26 December 2014 (UTC)
