The Graphics Lab is a project to improve the graphical content of the Wikimedia projects. Requests for image improvements can be added to the workshop pages: Illustrations, Photographs and Maps. For questions or suggestions one can use the talk pages: Talk:Graphics Lab, Talk:Illustrations, Talk:Photographs and Talk:Maps.
This specific page is the requests page for the Map workshop. Anyone can make a request for a map to be created or improved for a Wikipedia article. The standard format for making a request is shown below, along with general advice, and should be followed.
You are encouraged to share information and request advice from others. Also see possible conventions toolbox, map tutorials and topographic map tutorials.

Advice to requesters
  • Sourced requests: If possible, please try to provide a reliable source to create a map. This includes a map already on Wikipedia with a reliable source or an external link. Note that some of us have access to libraries and may have access to cited books.
  • Please check: Please check back regularly to see if progress has been made or if any additional questions need to be answered before the request can be completed.
  • Direct collaboration: Some mapmakers are especially interested by one area (e.g. India). If you notice a mapmaker fitting your needs, you can propose a direct collaboration, using his personal talk page to request maps.
  • {{Reqmap}}: To request a map, you can also tag the talk page of the article in need of a map with or {{Reqmapin|Australia}} (article then appear in Category:Wikipedia requested maps)
  • {{Resolved}}: If a request is done to your satisfaction, please mark it with {{resolved}}.

World Rail Gauge Map[edit]

It would be great if this map could be made into an SVG using the world base map I suggest or some other base map. It would make it easier to zoom in on smaller countries. -- gren グレン 15:05, 1 April 2014 (UTC)

Amphisbaenia range map[edit]

Stale

Article(s): Amphisbaenia

Request:

The current map (File:World.distribution.amphisbaenia.1.png) is inaccurate, showing, among other things that amphisbaenas occur in Madagascar, in a different area of the Arabian Peninsula from their actual range, and missing their range in Asia Minor. The second page of this article contains an accurate map of Amphisbaenia distribution and I'd like to request that a new map be made for this article based on it. Note that the article has different colors for each Family within the group, and that the range of Amphisbaenia is the aggregate of those ranges. It might also be worthwhile to make a distribution map for each family to be included in the respective articles on those taxa. Cheers! Peter G Werner (talk) 03:01, 7 April 2014 (UTC)

Request: User Soman asked in the Illustration workshop for help on an Indian election map. Because I run my os on a 486, my computer cannot handle images of that size. Can someone give him a hand?

Cross-sections, Antarctic and Tibet/Himalaya[edit]

Stale

Article(s): Antarctica

Request:

Documented data source
It would be great to have a map comparing the heights of the Tibetan Plateau and the Antarctic, to scale (obviously the vertical scale will have to be much larger than the horizontal scale, but the same scales for both locations). The height of Antarctica is really important to the regional circulation and other features, and it would be great to have a vivid visualization of how tall it is. A N-S transect for Himalaya/Tibetan Plateau, and a 90W-90E one for Antarctica, would work well.

The individual cross-sections, seperately, would make useful and informative images in their own rights, and encourage people to modify them to present geological and biozone information.

Showing the under-ice ground surface is nice, but not essential. See the metadata of the image on the right for a data source.

Request:

Currently, the Abbasid Revolution is just a redirect to the Umayyad Caliphate. I am working hard on turning the subsection in that article into a full fledged article in my sandbox.

add the Yellow region on the second map (Zungharian Basin) as a pink region on the first map. I have a source which shows that Pan-Mongolists included Dzungaria as part of their territory.

File:Time zones of Europe.svg - Crimea[edit]

Crimea should be light green, since it switched to Moscow Time after it was annexed by Russia. Frenzie23 (talk) 13:24, 14 June 2014 (UTC)

Metro New York City location map[edit]

I'd be interested in a similar map that also includes Westchester County, Rockland County, and the rest of Long Island, if that's not too difficult. The amount of detail that is shown on the existing NYC location map (roads, mainly) is not necessarily needed. And now that I think of it, perhaps the New Jersey and Connecticut areas of the tri-state area could be included in the 'lit' portion of the map, if the mapmaker sees fit.

Oregon Country request[edit]

Stale

Articles(s): Provisional Government of Oregon

Request:

Currently there is only a somewhat atrocious map for the PGO. I quite like this map of the Oregon Country https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Oregoncountry2.png but it needs a little work. I ideally would like something to reflect both the political divisions of the PGO along with some additional Euro-American settlements through out the Oregon Country. Some additional pioneer towns should be added, like Champoeg and Portland. Astoria should be renamed to Fort George, despite not being actively used by the Hudson's Bay Company at this time. Additionally, could Fort Boise be added? The missions of Tshimakain, Waiilatpu, Lapwai and Wascopam would be excellent as well. This gives a rough idea to the location of the interior missions. http://www.nps.gov/history/history/online_books/brochures/1947/whmi/images/fig3.jpg

For the districts and later counties of the PGO, the initial four and their boundaries are described here. http://books.google.com/books?id=C2YUAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA8#v=onepage&f=false The PGO pressed the claim of rule up to border of Russian Alaska at 54° 40, yet didn't have any control north of the Columbia. In 1845 the PGO and Hudson's Bay Company came to an agreement, with the district of Vancouver created comprising the entirety of the lands north of the Columbia. http://books.google.com/books?id=pNcwAQAAMAAJ&lpg=PA43&ots=cGXLEb6_Wn&dq=Oregon%20Acts%20and%20Laws%20for%20August%201845&pg=PA22#v=onepage&q&f=false I don't know how to best express the control of the PGO over areas in the Oregon Country as its authority scarcely left the settler towns and farms of the Willamette Valley and leave that to any willing mapmaker.

Commonwealth Games – Hong Kong[edit]

Article(s): Commonwealth Games

Request:

Hong Kong used to compete in the Commonwealth Games, so it should be colored green. See Hong Kong at the Commonwealth Games. Chanheigeorge (talk) 16:53, 3 August 2014 (UTC)
On second look, Hong Kong is already in green, but the dot is so small and thus it is extremely hard to see given the color contrast (Gibraltar is easier to see given it is in red).

Map request for US regions[edit]

Stale

Article NCAA_Women's_Division_I_Basketball_Championship

Request:

I would like some regional maps. I have added maps of Final Four locations to pages such as NCAA_Women's_Division_I_Basketball_Championship I would like to extend to cover not just Final Four, but all venues. However, it will be too crowded on a single US maps, so I thought I would use three maps, one roughly west of Mississippi, one east of Mississippi excluding roughly New England, and one of New England plus NY, PA, NJ, and DE.

I can handle the coloring of a map in Inkscape, but I do not know how to create the map with the state and country outlines. I can handle the creation of the location map module (I haven't dealt with conic projection, which I think I can ignore on the Northeast map, I will have to figure it out or get some handholding on the other two.

Following are the geographical boundaries of the three desired maps:

West

   50
-126 -89
   25

South and Midwest

   48
-93   -75
   24

Native American Indian Tribes - Raven Stories[edit]

Stale

Article(s): Raven Tales

Request:

As I've been working on extensively expanding the Raven Tales article which is about they cultural stories of Indians in the north west, it's become apparent that the geography of each tribe and the relation of them to each other is significant to the stories. Reading the stories there is significant detail which describes the geography. I think it would be very interesting to compose a map which displays each of the tribes that have stories of Raven... to see the geographic comparison. Going even further it would be awesome to attempt to plot the journeys of Raven through all of the stories but this may be a very intensive endeavor to take on.

I've added extensive references to the Raven Tales article where you can get access to the original stories if you'd like to start taking a look. Thanks. I found this image [3] which should help as well. -- David Condrey (talk) 20:08, 3 September 2014 (UTC)

-Snow Lion Fenian-

Graphist opinion(s):

Maybe you are all set with Commons:Category:SVG locator maps of administrative counties in Ireland (location map scheme)? It incorporates the recent changes in Ireland. It features a different graphical approach, though. (There's clearly too much green when it comes to Ireland) Besides the different color, I don't show Northern Ireland's administrative borders, 'cause it's a different country (some folks don't get that straight ;-). "Your" maps above also show historic borders for Nothern Ireland, which annoys me the the most. For modern NI borders check out Commons:Category:SVG locator maps of districts in Northern Ireland (location map scheme). --TUBS (talk) 09:50, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

Please make added borders less draw-y, match the rest of map... -- Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 15:28, 23 September 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

The borders on the rest of the map don't look draw-y because they are precise. They can be precise because they represent something real and well-defined. The borders of the territories of the proposed "Greater Mongolia" were never defined, and it would feel dishonest to draw them as precise. How would it be if someone made them greyer, or invisible, just leaving the pink patches? Unfortunately the pink patches don't quite border Mongolia, so there would be an annoying and incorrect gap. Maproom (talk) 21:48, 23 September 2014 (UTC)
That's specious-Altai, Tuva, Buryatia and Inner Mongolia, all already labeled on the map, have well-defined borders, and do border Mongolia without any gap. It is a disservice to Wikipedia to have a map up that looks like it was sketched out in MSPaint of an afternoon. The options are improve the map or seek to have it deleted, not another halfway stopgap map that doesn't address the earlier issue.--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 11:36, 24 September 2014 (UTC)

Request: Hi, I am hoping that someone would be able to create a map to be used in the above article to illustrate the French defensive positions and certain key towns and villages associated with the invasion. At present there is no map to support the article, and the creation of such would vastly benefit the article and help the reader pinpoint the various locations mentioned in the text.

I only have access to an e-copy of the below source and the low-res map contained on 174. I have uploaded several copies, including a zoomed in version (if it helps any), and one clearly marking the various French positions as highlighted in the accompanying key. If possible, could the map show the elevations (not clearly shown on the map), the 27 French defensive areas (per the key and highlighted), as well as the following key towns and villages: Briançon, Montgenèvre (not shown on the map, but located just to the east of Briançon), and Menton. If possible, could the Italian and French divisions also be included to show the general disposition of both sides?

I have been unable to find any additional maps showing the French defensive positions, but would be willing to provide any other assistance as needed. Regards -- EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 23:32, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

@EnigmaMcmxc: I have started to work on the map but I need some help of from you. The map doesn't have the same proportions as google maps so it makes it a bit hard. Also the map is blurry and there are so many different types of lines that I have problems to separate from each other.
  • You are talking about a key, I don't understand where to find it.
  • Have you any information on what the different types of lines represent.
  • I also need help with the elevations. The map is to blurry to be able to read the heights. So you will have to help me to either get the names of the peaks or get the altitudes and which is which, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:06, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Hi Goran. Again, thanks for taking a look at this.
  • In regards to the Key, i was referring to the complete list of fortifications found on the first image.
  • There is no key in the book, although i would assume the following: the dashed line is the border, the bold lines are roads, the lines with strikes through are railroads, and the faint lines are rivers. I could be wrong however, but that is my best educated guess given the lack of a key and based on how i have seen other maps drawn.
  • As for the heights, i have re-looked at the scans and the E-book (equally blurry) and i am not able to match up the figures with known landmarks. For example, on the map there is a peak of 1043 between Cuneo and Menton. I have not been able to find a match, although there is a Mont Bégo in that general area although it is much higher. Unless anyone else can chime in with information, would a work around such as using an existing map of the Alps (that already shows the terrain) and impose the key information onto it (general fortification locations, Italian division locations, and the few extra towns mentioned in the intro) be possible?
Of course we can do so and if you know of a map like that just give me the link here, thanks. We have to join the two maps the best we can. Two different maps are never the same so its always a bit tricky but with your help I'm glad to try. --Goran tek-en (talk) 17:42, 20 January 2015 (UTC)
I do not know if it would work (scale, modern borders rather than 1939 ones), but i did see this one earlier when doing some searches: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/47/Alpenrelief_02.jpg . Is it a possible starting point?EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 04:59, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

I have made two DRAFTS now that I want you to look at and give me feedback on. Both of them are just a raw draft, remember that as I want to know which you want before I put in to much work. Everything that is important will be more visible in the final map. Both of them are very heavy to load but that is just because both versions are in the same file for now.

  • This is with a normal situation map for wikimedia with the summits from the original map normal flat map #1
  • This is more of a topographic map which also is used here, topographic map #2. I tried this as you talked about the mountains summits and it really tells you what a difficult terrain it is.
  • #2 will even in the final map be very heavy and probably around 4-5MB which is a lot. This is due to that the terrain is also vectorized. #1 will be much smaller but it gives another feeling and understanding. You can use the png-files which always is created if you want and they will not be that heavy but has other disadvantages.
  1. I want you to tell me which type you want #1 or 2.
  2. If you already now know that some parts of the the map should be pushed back visually?

So get back to me as I can't continue without your feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:02, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Personally, i prefer the second as it shows the difficult terrain that is important to the topic. In regards to pushing back parts, the fortress locations around Mention need to be pushed to the left: Menton was in front of the Alpine Line and some of the fortress locations are on the wrong side of the border. Other than that, i do not see anything that needs to be corrected. Although a second pair of eyes would not go a miss. I look forward to seeing the final draft, and as always please let me know if you need additional information or assistance.EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 00:29, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
Thanks, but regarding "pushing back" things I wasn't clear enough. What I tried to say was that e.g. the roads could be "pushed back visually" so that they were not that obvious. Regarding the placing of fortress, borders etc. I will ask you to check this later on and it's always good if there are more people checking it.
  • For the legend I want you to give me the words for the different parts in the map, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 11:43, 22 January 2015 (UTC)
@EnigmaMcmxc: Now you can look at a draft here.
  • First look at the overall looks.
  • Then you have to check the border as it's very hard to see on the image in some areas and I guess it's not the same as today.
  • Check the positions of units and fortifications.
  • Check the numbers for units and fortifications as some are really hard to read.
  • Look at the legend and give me the text for each symbol.
  • Do you want the names of the countries in the map?
  • Please give me exact instructions on how/what to edit, I have no knowledge of this, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 12:20, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks again. I will get back to you later or tomorrow with feedback. I have also requested a second set of eyes from @Srnec:, who is also active on this article.EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 13:52, 24 January 2015 (UTC)

The Italian division number '56' should be '58', I believe. The flag with four X's above it indicates an army headquarters (1st, 4th and 7th). A box with two X's is a division, with a large X in it is infantry, with an oval armour, with a diagonal reconnaissance. The little black triangle indicates that it possesses mountain equipment. The big black dots are ouvrages. Perhaps you knew this already, but I can't read the original scan much better than you. Enigma will have to help you with that. Srnec (talk) 17:55, 24 January 2015 (UTC)
Srnec, thanks for the above although other comments are welcome. Goran, I have been pressed for time lately. I will get back to. Srnec has provided some excellent feeeback, if that helps you make some further progress. However, I disagree with one remark. The box with a cross through it is the symbol for a cavalry unit.EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 12:41, 26 January 2015 (UTC)

I was hoping someone could modify this French map for Wikiprojects related to the Pacific Northwest. The issue with the map is it isn't terribly accurate for the area disputed between the UK and the US prior the 1846 Oregon Treaty. The Americans consistently for decades claimed the portion of Vancouver Island south of the 49th parallel. A different coloured line following the area at times claimed by both nations, modern Western Washington state and most of British Columbia would beneficial. The second map at least gives an idea for the course of the continental divide and the more extensive American claim of 54'40. The French language itself isn't an issue for me, given it is SVG.

@EnigmaMcmxc: I'm not sure what you are looking for but now there is a draft on one of the maps for you to look at. In some areas of the map there is a lot of information so it gets crowded. Have a look and tell me what you want, what to change and so on, you are the one with the knowledge of this subject and you know what you are looking for. Draft to look at and give me feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:51, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
Thanks very much. Excellent work so far. Can the location of the Alpine unit be moved? It needing to go to the bottom left of the map to match the original. Would it also be possible to change the background colour, for me it just doesn't work (although I would not have any suggestions other than perhaps a green?). In addition, "arc" at the top of map is the Arc River (L'Arc on Google Maps), which runs across the top of the map. Could this be amended to state such per the other rivers on the map? I was unable, for the moment, to find what "Kiv" stands for or what it is suppose to represent. As mentioned, the Arc - per Google - runs across the top of the map. For now, could Kiv be removed?
While there is a lot of information on the map, it now being in colour makes it much easier to read (not to mention its free, whereas the original I do not think would hold up if scrutinized). The shaded area on the map, next to the lake poses an issue for me. I do not know what it is suppose to represent on the original map. The staging area for the 11th Division? For ease of reading, this may need to go too.EnigmaMcmxc (talk) 23:45, 16 December 2014 (UTC)
The map is based on an article that was translated from Russian. Some French and Italian placenames got garbled. "Kiv" is just a typo for "Riv", as in river. Note that "Cemschia" should be "Val Cenischia". The "Ribbon" is actually the Ribon; "Sollierés" should be Sollières; "Le Plenet" should be Le Planay; "Ft Balm" should be Ft de la Balme; "Giazette" is the Col des Lacs Giaset; and Étache has an acute accent. The solid and dashed orange lines (in your rendition) are roads. The line you show as a black-and-white dashed line is the border.
The shaded area represents the 11th Infantry Division Brennero held in reserve. Srnec (talk) 01:54, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
  • @EnigmaMcmxc: We who create maps here try to follow map guidlines so that all of the maps looks more or less the same. In that way it's much easier for the viewers to understand and take in the information, for this reason we use a template Maps_template and it has three different colors for land so with the new information from Srnec I have made some changes.
  • I also think that the area next to the lake is the area of the 11th Inf Div and with the new information I kept it. If it still should be removed just tell me.
  • Symbol question.svg Question: I have added some information in the legend but you should check so that the dashed orange lines really is rods in tunnels or tell me what it is? Now when I started the second map I think the dashed orange lines maybe just minor roads? They are too long and many to be tunnels I think. Get back to me on that, thanks.
  • @Srnec: You wrote "The "Ribbon" is actually the Ribon" but I can't find that word. Symbol question.svg Question: Where is it?
  • Now there is a new draft to look at, give me feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 11:14, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
  • I agree that the dashed lines are probably not tunnels. I suspect they are unpaved or seasonal roads. The "Ribbon" river is the torrent du Ribon, a mountain stream. Also, since col is just French for "pass", Col des Lacs Giaset Pass is redundant. "Lacs Giaset pass" will do.
  • On the other map... Solage should be Seloge, Seign should be Seigne, Les Chapieu should be Les Chapieux, what looks like Setz is Séez, Rocher Pass is the Rocher Blanc Pass to be precise, and Moûtiers has a circumflex. The "Trieste Division" and the "Motorized Division" are the same division: the 101st Motorised Division Trieste. The big arrow pointing at Albertville represents the goal of the offensive and not a troop movement. The map does not have a compass rose, but I think it is oriented with north at top. Hope this helps. Srnec (talk) 20:40, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
@EnigmaMcmxc:@Srnec: Thanks for the feedback and information it helps me a lot. Now there are two new drafts to look at and give me feedback on.
Italian_offensive_Mont_Cenis
Italian_offensive_Bourg_Saint-Maurice There is one pass "Traversette Pass" that I can see the name for but not the actual pass. Symbol question.svg Question: Do any of you know where it should be? --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:44, 19 December 2014 (UTC)
The colouring of the glaciers seems a little off. Isn't it supposed to be the same as the country/background?
In the Bourg St Maurice map, the small blue arrow pointing southeast just below the small permanent fort is, I believe, supposed to represent the action of a regiment passing through the Col de la Traversette to attack the fort there from the rear. (Maybe the permanent fort indicated on the original map is supposed to be that fort, in which case it or the arrow is wrongly placed. So I'll assume it is not.) The fort they were trying to outflank was the Redoute Ruinée (ruined before 1940 and still ruined now) and if you look it up on Google Maps you'll see how it and the Col de la Traversette relate, and how they are approximately in the location to which that little arrow points. It has approximately a north–south orientation.
Thanks for doing this. Srnec (talk) 04:35, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

The glaciers have a weak tone of white in them, it's the same on both maps. It's more viible on the "Italy" country color. If you don't want it on either map tell me, but I think it's more understandable/visible like that.
I did look up Redoute Ruinée on google maps but Col de la Traversette is more than 5 hours drive from there what I can see so is that really the same?
If you have a link which shows this better or if you make a sketch or something I will edit but right now I don't know what to do?
I did an edit but I'm not sure it's correct. Look at Italian_offensive_Bourg_Saint-Maurice and give me feedback. Maybe you have to reload to get the new one.
How is the "Mont_Cenis" map, is it correct now? --Goran tek-en (talk) 13:48, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

I should have explained better. There is another Col de la Traversette that is far away. That's why I suggested googling Redoute Ruinée. The Traversette pass that we're looking for is at 45.657551, 6.877360. You'll see it pretty clearly—and its relationship to the fort and the Little St Bernard—in Google Earth. I'd show it as a north–south pass to which that little arrow is pointing. The Mont Cenis map looks fine to me. Srnec (talk) 18:24, 20 December 2014 (UTC)
  • Looks good. I understand the difficulty. Srnec (talk) 20:39, 20 December 2014 (UTC)

I noticed that you do not have a depth map for the Mediterranean sea. The only one I found was at http://www.divinglore.com/Genesis/Mediterranean%20Depth%20Chart.html. I think Wikipedia should have one. I am not tech savy so hope this gets to you. You could have made it easier for less accomplished users. Tom T. Moore

List of current members of the Maryland House of Delegates

This is a featured list and we are in the process of updating for the results of the 2014 elections. Unfortunately, in the meantime the state has undergone redistricting and the current map is based on the districts from the 2000 redistricting rather than the current districts. So we need someone willing to redo the map based on the new districts. Maryland's maps of he new districts for the new lines can be found here: http://planning.maryland.gov/redistricting/. Coloring of the districts can be based on the updated list already added to the article. We will also need an updated version of the Maryland Senate map, although we have not yet updated the list at List of current members of the Maryland Senate. -- Geraldk (talk) 16:25, 24 December 2014 (UTC)

Each A-League season's pages contain a map with icons showing the geographical locations of the teams in the A-League. I have no issues about aligning these myself, the only problem I'm having is that they appear quite cramped around the Sydney region where there are currently four teams (which could extend to as many as six soon). I think this would look a lot better with an inset on the map magnifying Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra; or even just around Sydney and Canberra, with the inset perhaps placed in the blank top right area of the map above New Zealand.
Perhaps we could even utilise a slightly larger map? I'm pretty flexible. Whatever you guys think would look best. -- J man708 (talk) 23:36, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

Hello. I want to add a neighborhood map for Mount Vernon Triangle. (something similar to File:Dupont Circle Map.pdf or File:Dupontmap.png) I don't know how to do this. The boundaries of the neighborhood can be seen here and here. It's 7th Street NW on the west, New York Avenue NW on the north, New Jersey Avenue NW on the east and Massachusetts Avenue NW on the south. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Okay: I have a map, which is available with a CC 2.0 free license from OpenStreetMap. I mapped out the neighborhood and the link is here. There are features that you can tweak, to change the background map, to include less or more detail. It can also be scaled. The download feature is stuck right now, due to too high a load on the server. @AgnosticPreachersKid:: Is this enough information to get you going? More experienced cartographers might do a a better job with this. There are similar maps of the DC neighborhoods here on Commons. They have templates with appropriate licensing. If you are stuck, I can try again later to download the map, but if you can do it yourself, it might be easier for you to customize. Hope that this is somehow helpful. Gaff (talk) 05:29, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

TEST3:Rectilinear(?) dot assignment contradicts map projection
Black Xes are ports and should be on the coast; See lower right; Baku is debatable
Blue circle: no Wikipedia ports in this region; Chechen Island: Google Earth has this at 44 N

Is this worth fixing? It appears that this map uses rectangular coordinates to assign dots while the map uses a different projection. This shows up mainly for ports which should be on the coast. I assume you already know this, but it would be a good thing to fix if there were a practical way. Benjamin Trovato (talk) 17:33, 6 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes, that should definitely be fixed. If the projection that the image uses is known, then Template:Location map Caucasus mountains should be updated to use it. If it isn't known, then a new map image should be created. Jackmcbarn (talk) 18:54, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
The map was made by me, it uses the conic equidistant projection. I don't know how do you do this in English Wikipedia, but in Russian Wikipedia we use these formulas:
x = {{#expr: sin({{{1}}}/92.433-0.4848)*(1292.56-12.1988*{{{2}}})+46.08 }}
y = {{#expr: cos({{{1}}}/92.433-0.4848)*(1662.65-15.6916*{{{2}}})-960.13 }}
Hellerick (talk) 06:34, 8 January 2015 (UTC)
@Hellerick: Thanks. I updated the map to use that projection with Special:Diff/642401732. Jackmcbarn (talk) 03:33, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Topkapi palace unified map[edit]

Topkapı_Palace
Request
The Topkapi palace article has no good overall map. Ideally it would have a SVG map of all the courtyards and with all the details, of which an overview is shown in the beginning of the article and then excerpts whenever the article mentions specific courtyards or buildings. Of course this is a lot of work, but it is worth it! Plus I'd guess it is among the more satisfying work here. I'd really like to do it myself, but see no opening in my calendar for the foreseeable future. :-( Note: I have the greatest respect for the person who did https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Graphics_Lab/Map_workshop/Archive/March_2014#Red_Fort !

@Lommes: Please can you specify exactly which diagrams you want, e.g. Harem, Courtyard, blah blah. Thanks.  Philg88 talk 07:25, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

@Philg88:Most important, imho, would be an overall map of the whole palace, that is corresponding to the last image of the model. Ideally, but not necessarily, it would be so detailed that one could use parts of this overall map to illustrate the different courtyards and the harem. I think it would be generally useful to color-code the courtyards in pastel colours (see http://www.istanbulextralarge.com/topkapi-palace.html for a satellite image of where which courtyard is located). I am not sure if I answered your question satisfactorily, if not please specify what I did not answer. Thanks very much in advance.Lommes (talk) 13:50, 15 January 2015 (UTC)
I just found http://www.internetstones.com/image-files/topkapi-palace-layout-ilban-oz-2.jpg which does the pastel colour thing i described above. Of course, which colours you use is entirely up to you. I just proposed pastel colours, so one can still use fully saturated colours to show other features, if needed.Lommes (talk) 13:57, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

Israel Railways

The liner from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv needs to be extended to Herzliya, and the Rishon LeZion HaRishonim to Netanya - see here (the stations on the map are all labeled in English as well as Hebrew). Additionally, I suspect that the colors of the lines should probably be chaned, because they're used on the map only for the purpose of distinguishing the separate lines on the map, and they have nothing to do with reality, so copying them may be a copyvio. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 12:04, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

This article will be going up for FA review in the next week or so. Anyone interested in cleaning up/redrawing this diagram? The source is cited on the file at commons and is also here.
