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}}.

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)

Uploading an image at the same location doesn't remove the old one - it just hides it under a rug, which you can easily peek under at the file description page and restore older versions. See here for the previous version of this particular image. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 05:50, 15 January 2015 (UTC)

County Tipperary and Waterford City[edit]

Stale

Article(s): Every article these maps are already on.

Request:

On 3 June 2014, The Local Government Reform Act 2014 merged North Tipperary and South Tipperary into a single county called Tipperary, and also merged together Waterford City Council and Waterford County Council. So would someone please remove the border between North and South Tipperary and the border of Waterford City on all the above maps.

-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)
In addition: afaik, Limerick city and the respective county merged. These (hard to spot) borders were also removed. --TUBS (talk) 17:24, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

Ambassador Bridge Map request[edit]

Request
I am requesting a new map detailing the location of the Amabassador Bridge. The current map is unsatisfactory because it is largely based on a map of Michigan. I request that a new map be made that is more 'zoomed' in so that it includes more of Ontario and better reflects the nature of the bridge as bordering two countries.

Image's request under progression Request taken by Gaff (talk) 19:27, 6 January 2015 (UTC).

@ACanadianToker: Can you take a look at this site, which provides free license maps? Here is is zoomed in on the bridge. You can pan out to get the detail you want, then down load the map as .png. That would be an easy way. You could also look around at maps of other bridges, such as Brooklyn Bridge to get a better sense of the design you would like. Do you want details of city streets, or just gray scale, or colors for Canada and Michigan? Maybe ask this at the article talk page to get consensus? Gaff (talk) 19:40, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
@Gaff: Hello, I tried to edit the map in OSM but was unable to change anything. I have this picture, which I think is most appropriate. Ideally a map would be like this, in colors for Michigan and Ontario With Detroit and Windsor both listed. As for streets I think they could be left off. I appreciate your help, Gaff.

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)

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).

Question about text in SVG files[edit]

If I am creating an SVG file, I check what it looks like in my browser. The fonts my browser uses to render the text in it are presumably determined somewhere under my control.

When I upload the SVG to Commons, some program there renders the SVG into .svg.png files that are served out to the various Wikipedias. This program has some default fonts which are different from the ones my browser uses, so my SVG sometimes looks wrong: pieces of text don't fit in the boxes I drew for them.

A sensible solution would be for me to change my browser's default fonts to the ones the renderer on Commons uses. How can I find out what these are? Maproom (talk) 20:19, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

You need to convert the text to path in your svg editor so that it will appear the same everywhere. Rcsprinter123 (articulate) @ 20:35, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
Not necessarily, see c:Help:SVG#Fonts / text and make sure that you use one of the fonts listed there. --Redrose64 (talk) 21:21, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Wharf map of London[edit]

Map of wharves on the River Thames, London published in 1905

I've photographed an out-of-copyright 1905 map of the River Thames wharves in central and east London. It needs to be stitched together - there are six segments divided between two horizontal strips, each with three segments at the top and three at the bottom. The colours also need to be equalised and the segments need to be correctly sized and positioned alongside each other. The segments are:

Could someone please help with this? Prioryman (talk) 21:23, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

I have some software designed to do that; but it requires at least some overlap between each pair of adjacent segments. My impression is that the 1st and 2nd have a gap between them (ok, maybe no gap, but no overlap as required: look at London Bridge station), and the 5th and 6th have no overlap. Maproom (talk) 21:33, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
I think the gaps exist on the original map. It consists of a sheet of cloth onto which squares of map have been glued, so there are gaps between the individual squares. I presume they made it that way to be more resistant to folding than it would be if it was a single sheet of paper. Prioryman (talk) 21:48, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Ah, that's what the OS called the "dissected" edition. They stopped making these by the end of 1952, but they carried on making the non-dissected cloth-backed maps until circa 1967. --Redrose64 (talk) 23:15, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Interesting, I didn't know that. It's not an OS map so I'd guess they weren't the only ones producing maps in that style. Is it possible to put it together, albeit with gaps? Prioryman (talk) 07:09, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for your interest. All the necessary information is contained in my description and in the lower map.

Commonwealth Republics Map - Gambia and Rwanda[edit]

Resolved
Article(s)
Republics in the Commonwealth of Nations
Request
Could someone please update this map- Rwanda joined the Commonwealth as a republic in 2009, so it should be coloured in pink to reflect that. And Gambia left the Commonwealth on 3 October 2013, so it should no longer be in pink at all. (And while you're at it, maybe you could also put in the border between Sudan and South Sudan as well, thanks).

SVG topographic map of Guatemala[edit]

Article(s)
es:Conquista de Guatemala
Request
Hello, I would like request a pure SVG topographic map of Guatemala and the surrounding lands, similar to this map of Bulgaria. My goal is to replace these maps: Conquest of Guatemala, Guatemala, Guatemala highlands, Guatemala lowlands with SVG maps in Spanish in the Spanish Wikipedi articles. Would this be feasible? Thank you!--Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 10:07, 15 April 2015 (UTC)

Request
Maybe someone could colour Somalia and South Sudan in a lighter shade of green, as they have applied to join the East African Community and could potentially form part of the proposed East African Federation.

OAPAC members - South Sudan[edit]

Request
South Sudan is no longer part of Sudan or OAPAC, hence it needs to be coloured grey on the above map to reflect that.

error-correction[edit]

Article(s)
massively in-use, across multiple wikis in various languages[[]]
Request
There is a rather serious error in the english-version's map-legend, which appears to have been the result of a mis-reading or mistranslation. to witt: where in the english legend the colour white indicates "after 1500 A.D.", in the french original the actual/original wording indicates "after 1500 (B.C.)" (ap = apres). examining the white areas of the map itself CLEARLY shows the error, in that it is beyond absurd to suggest that these places did not achieve bronze-age technology until "after 1500 A.D.". tangentially, i think the map itself may be innaccurate in showing the diffusion of bronze age technology; in the lower euphrates-tigris area & in north africa, west of egypt, at least. however, that is a "deeper issue". the matter at-hand is that the english legend needs to be corrected to indicate that the white areas are dated to "after 1500 B.C." & 'not A.D. -- Lx 121 (talk) 11:17, 3 May 2015 (UTC)
