As you may have already heard, the Wikipedia community lost an invaluable member of the community last month. Adrianne Wadewitz was a feminist scholar of 18th-Century British literature, and a prolific editor of the site. As part of a worldwide series of tributes, New England Wikimedians, in conjunction with local institutions of higher learning, have created three edit-a-thons that will be occurring in May and June. The events are as follows:

We hope that you will be able to join us, whether you are an experienced editor or are using Wikipedia for the first time.

Minnesota Geological Survey Bedrock Map[edit]

Andy Wickert was here

Hello AW! It has been a while!

Some time ago you uploaded the 2000 bedrock map, which is in the public domain. There is now a 2011 version accessed via this site and selecting the Geologic Map of Minnesota's Bedrock Geology PDF (which I'm sure you already know). Do you know if this 2011 map is in the public domain?

Regards, Kablammo (talk) 18:57, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi Kablammo,
Harvey T., director of the MGS, said via email that they were free to use so long as the MGS was cited. I didn't get any clarification as to whether that would be the same as CC-BY, which I think it would be, but in his shoes, I'd be slow to reply in case there are legal reprecussions to an implicit license decision. Is his first reply good enough for WP, or should I send him another message?
Andy Wickert (talk) 21:13, 12 July 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for the email, AW. I will run it up the flagpole to see if is is sufficient. Best wishes, Kablammo (talk) 16:16, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
Let me know if it is/isn't; will be great to start adding those maps to Wikimedia Commons. Andy Wickert (talk) 18:32, 14 July 2016 (UTC)
Hi again. I uploaded it to Commons, under public domain (using the PD-MGS template), and requesting attribution. Thanks for your help. Kablammo (talk) 20:45, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
Sounds good -- I created that template years ago, but always wondered if I could use a CC license with the MGS. Andy Wickert (talk) 03:00, 22 July 2016 (UTC)
