Plans for developing this article[edit]

My draft of a new Fortifications of Gibraltar article (see User:Prioryman/Fortifications of Gibraltar) is now pretty well advanced - I'm aiming to finish it by the end of this month, work permitting. I thought I'd say something about how I'm planning to make it work with this article. I'm proposing to do the following:

  • Rename Fortifications of Gibraltar to List of fortifications of Gibraltar (my draft would thereby become the overview article and this the more detailed list);
  • Delete the current intro text in this article (basically everything above the list of contents);
  • Add the geographical typology of the fortifications put forward by Migos & Hughes in Strong as the Rock of Gibraltar, which groups the fortifications by area;
  • Convert the current list sections into tables sortable by name, coordinates, date of construction and geographical sector;
  • Add a series of clickable numbered imagemaps, one for each type of fortification, along the lines of Template:Overlay#Charlotte Pass Village. Thus there would be an imagemap for bastions, one for batteries, one for walls and gates and so on.

I think that covers everything for the moment! I'd appreciate any thoughts that people might have. Prioryman (talk) 12:15, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

That sounds great, I approve! I'm particularly looking forward to the clickable imagemaps which I think will add another dimension to the article. Your overview article is already looking great too. Let me know if I can be of any assistance with any of this. Thanks, --Gibmetal 77talk 2 me 12:27, 22 May 2013 (UTC)
