Map[edit]

This looks like a very promising list (I like the format which looks like it was based on the Spain list), but the map just isn't working. The names are too bunched together and overlap, making them illegible. I don't think there's a way round this in the current format without making the map ludicrously large. An alternative approach is used in the UK list: coordinates are given in the location column in the format {{coord|53.020278|-1.499722|name=Derwent Valley Mills}}, where "name=" is the name of the site. Then when {{GeoGroupTemplate}} is added to the article there's a link to something like Google maps with the location of each site. Nev1 (talk) 18:10, 23 November 2010 (UTC)

Hi, I tried to have a workaround without technical modifications: shortened the name of several sites, e.g. "Group of Monuments at Hampi" to "Hampi," or "Sundarbans National Park" to "Sundarbans N.P." The links and hover-text remains as before. Also rearranged the names around the location marks (left, top etc.) so almost all of them are visible now, except Taj Mahal :) There are a few sites that are not on the map, will try to add them, but then it's in danger of being all cluttered again. Well I'll bite that bullet. VishalB (talk) 12:28, 13 May 2011 (UTC)
Done. Bit more cluttered but satisfyingly complete. Especial thanks to the original editor(s) who added the map to the article. VishalB (talk) 17:15, 13 May 2011 (UTC)

Site in danger: Manas[edit]

Have just removed a sentence stating "There is no site in danger." Manas Wildlife Sanctuary has been on the danger list since 1992. This is mentioned in the site description too in the table, along with three citations. http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/338 is the official UNESCO page and seems to be current. It does indicate Manas continues to be on the in-danger list. —Preceding unsigned comment added by VishalB (talkcontribs) 18:24, 12 May 2011 (UTC)
