Aim – This project aims to draw hi-resolution, vector maps for India-related articles. It also aims to get hi-resolution raster (.png) topography images. mastan

Scope – NPOV maps related to India (post-1947) and historical pre-Independence India (includes the South Asian nations of Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bhutan). The secondary goal would be to get NPOV maps for Pakistan, PRC, Afghanistan and Bhutan since they border disputed territories of India.

Types[edit]

The project is divided into locator maps, general maps and city maps.

Locator[edit]

Locator maps are used to show the location of a city, town, state or particular area within India. It is also used to show the location of a district, division or region in a map of a state.

General maps[edit]

Non-locator maps. Maps of this type incude rivers, ancient kingdoms, crop-related etc.

City maps[edit]

Maps of cities. See the featured image of Manila alongside for reference: rama nathapuram [1]

Topographical maps[edit]

These maps depict the topography of a region. See User:Captain Blood/GMT Example for an example.

These maps show demographic information using colors.

Using locator maps[edit]

Locator maps for cities are automatically added when the Infobox Indian Jurisdiction is used and latitude and logitude parameters are provided. If a locator map needs to be added to a section in an article, then use Location map template. Find below some examples.

Usage[edit]

{{Location map|India
 |label=label
 |position=left or right - position of the label relative to the mark, defaults to right
 |background=color - background color for the label, defaults to none 
 |lat=latitude in degrees
 |long=longitude in degrees
 |mark=image file name - a red dot by default
 |caption=caption - caption below the map
 |float=left or right or none
 |width=width of the map
}}

Examples[edit]

{{Location map|India|float=none|label=Mumbai|lat=18.96|long=72.82|position=left}}

Note:

Colours: A maximum of four colours is required for complex multi-color area maps (see Four color theorem).

Border styles[edit]

Style Used for Comments
Thick line Primary borders Use a thick line for the primary (usually political) borders on a map. If the map primarily depicts a country, use a thick line for the country borders; if a state, the state borders.
Thin line Secondary borders Use a thin line (approximately 1/2 the thickness of the primary borders) for secondary boundaries. If a state map shows counties, use a thin line for county borders.
Italic font Bodies of water Use an italicized font for labelling bodies of water: oceans, lakes, rivers, etc.
All-caps font Primary regions Use a font in all-capital letters for labelling primary regions of interest: country names, state names, etc.
Mixed case font Secondary regions Use mixed case (capital followed by lowercase) for regions of secondary interest: provinces in a country map, counties in a state map, etc.

Words-relate Conventions[edit]

Typeface[edit]

Use only Sans serif-type fonts in the maps.

Scheme Case Font Size Tracking Opacity Example
Union territory Normal Bold 30/24 0 35
National capital UPPERCASE Bold Italic 24 -25 100
Union territory capital Normal Italic 24 -25 100
State UPPERCASE Bold 40/30 0 35
State capital Normal Regular 24 -25 100
Metro cities UPPERCASE Regular 24 -25 100

Cartographic conventions[edit]

  • Names of coastal cities are written in the sea
  • Names of rivers and mountain ranges follow the path of the river/range
  • Capital cities are usually marked with a star

Uploading[edit]

Format[edit]

All maps should be drawn SVG format. SVG is a vector format that allows upscaling without pixellation. It also allows users to download and modify the map to make derivatives. Please do not use the following raster formats: .png, .gif and .jpg for maps. For topographical maps, use .png.

Filenames[edit]

TBD

Upload location[edit]

  • If the map contains no text, upload it to commons:
  • If text is needed to be added to the map, please make two versions: One, a blank map without text, and the other with text. Upload the blank map to commons, and the one with English text here on en wiki.

Licencing[edit]

Only images with a licence that allows commercial usage and allows derivatives to be made may be uploaded to wikipedia. The following licences qualify:

  • PD (Public domain) – user releases all rights to the image
  • GFDL – derivatives or commercial usage must be released only under the GFDL licence. User must be credited.
  • CC-BY- (creative commons, attribution) – similar to GFDL, the user must be credited, but derivatives may be released under other licences.
  • CC-BY-SA- (creative commons, attribution, share-alike) – same as CC-BY- but derivatives may be released only under the CC-BY-SA licence

You may use either one of the above. However to allow maximum compatibility across all wikimedia projects, it is suggested that we use either PD, or a dual licence GDFL + CC-BY-SA (v1.0, 2.0, 2.5, 3.0). (dual licence).

Summary[edit]

Please add the following information to summary while uploading.

{{Information
|Description=
|Source=
|Date=
|Author=
|Permission=
|other_versions=
}}

Legend[edit]

Use the following template

Template syntaxe Produce
{{Legend|#0000FF|Area where live [[Blue wale]].}}
  Area where live Blue wale.

Software and tips[edit]

Two popular SVG drawing software available are Inkscape and Adobe Illustrator. Inkscape is free and available for many platforms.

  • Draw images in the highest resolution possible.
  • For text please use a generic font such as Serif, Sans-serif. Sans is more suited for maps. The wikimedia renderer rasterises all fonts using Arial, so use Arial regular to maintain appearance of the map.
  • In inkscape make sure that you unflow the text
  • Ensure that no embedded raster images are present
  • Always add metadata. In Inkscape, metadata can be added in the Document Preferences.
