Portugal EEZ map[edit]

I see that you have uploaded the Portugal EEZ map. It seems that it is part of a bigger map of the EEZ of all countries. Do you have other such images, e.g. showing the EEZ of more countries - not only these that are visible on the Portugal map? See the Talk:Exclusive Economic Zone page. Also similar maps showing territorial waters and continental shelf claims would be a nice addition. Alinor 19:07, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi Alinor, Please take a look on European Union Member states EEZ. Luis wiki 23:52, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Portugal EEZ.PNG[edit]

Hi, your copyright tag for this image indicates it is your own work, although it looks like a screen cap from here. Do you own the website? As it is tagged to be moved to the Commons I think it is best to have details on it. Thanks. - J Logan t: 16:29, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Yes, the image is based on a Screen cap from VLIZ Maritime Boundaries Geodatabase (http://w2.vliz.be/vmdcdata/marbound/geointerface.php), with minor color changes. Added this information in the description. Thanks. Luis wiki 16:59, 26 August 2007 (UTC)

Hi JLogan, I understand that VLIZ Maritime Boundaries Geodatabase is an Open-Source project: From http://www.vliz.be/vmdcdata/marbound/index.php: "are considering the database as an Open-Source project". Do you share the same understanding? Luis wiki 23:50, 27 August 2007 (UTC)

Okay thanks. That's obviously their intention. However if you have time you might want to email them to check, I know plenty of places who say their stuff is free but when you ask the two fundamental points, can it be used commercially and can it be modified, they suddenly say no. Thanks again. - J Logan t: 06:34, 28 August 2007 (UTC)

Image:European Union Exclusive Economic Zones.PNG[edit]

Hello Luís wiki. Regarding the image you uploaded of the European Union Exclusive Economic Zones, I believe there could be a slight error: The area, not coloured, north of the Britihs Isles, pertaining to the EEZ of the Faroe Islands (an Autonomous province of the Kingdom of Denmark) should most probably be painted in the same colour as Denmark(?). What do you think? The Ogre 18:26, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Ah! Forget it: "As explicitly asserted by both Rome treaties, the Faroe Islands are not part of the European Union." The Ogre 18:32, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Hello The Ogre. I had the same question myself! I decided not to color the Faroe Islands EEZ exactly because I checked in Special member state territories and the European Union that the Faroe Islands are not part of the European Union, as you mention. The same criteria applies to the not colored Greenland EEZ (a self-governed Danish territory) partially shown in the upper left corner of the map. More, as far as I could understand, the Faroe Islands and the Greenland relationship with the EU are not exactly the same. So, it's not so easy.

It should be colored? I think it really depends on the context where the imaged is used. Maybe a foot legend could be added. If you think it should be changed, it can be done. And what about Greenland?

I am open minded to all the modifications that contribute to a more accurate information on Wikipedia. Thank you. Luis wiki 20:10, 29 August 2007 (UTC)
