Map of Lorentz National Park[edit]

Voting period is over. Please don't add any new votes. Voting period ends on 7 Feb 2013 at 15:57:46 (UTC)

Original – Map of Lorentz National Park located in the south-west of New Guinea island, in Indonesia. With an area of 25,056 km² (9,674 mi²), it is the largest national park in South-East Asia. Since 1999 it is listed as a World Heritage Site. The park is named after Hendrikus Albertus Lorentz, a Dutch explorer who passed through the area during his 1909–10 expedition.
This is one of the best maps of a national park on Wikipedia, providing detailed geographical information about the park, as well as the villages within the park and the adjacent mine, while being simple and visually compelling.

  • Support as nominator --ELEKHHT 11:02, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Support, after comment addressed - Finally another Indonesia-related file. I generally don't vote on maps, but since this is kinda my area... Original sources need to be indicated, already available at the French file. — Crisco 1492 (talk) 11:33, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
    • Copied. Please be bold when dealing with minor issues like that. Cheers. --ELEKHHT 11:46, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
      • If we were at FAC I would have (and have done, for licenses, several times), but since you may nominate another map in the future... men, fishing, teaching... — Crisco 1492 (talk) 11:54, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Support This is lovely. Adam Cuerden (talk) 23:44, 10 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Support per above. JJ Harrison (talk) 05:40, 11 January 2013 (UTC)
  • Weak oppose: no indication of the colour scale (although the peaks are shown, the overall pattern isn't). Secondly the large number of seemingly unnamed villages is distracting, and for those in the park, reduce the value of the file. Also I think the inset map would be a lot more helpful if it were a bit bigger, because the nested insetting makes it a bit hard to follow. Perhaps it would be best to move all the additional elements to a panel beneath the map, so we can do it better. There is also some sourcing uncertainty over the inset map (although it's probably too general to attract copyright) and the location of some the villages, which is more of a problem for the unlabelled ones as I'm keen to ensure we don't have phantom villages marked. I can pick out Photograph 1 (page 5 but that appears to have a slightly different st of villages and labels. Grandiose (me, talk, contribs) 17:58, 12 January 2013 (UTC)

Hello there, I am the creator of the original map. I will update on it this week:

  • Add a colour scale
  • Modify villages. I've just seen that OpenStreetMap now shows more villages than in april 2009, so I will use it.
  • About inset map, I don't know. I will make a try beneath the main map, but if I'm not satisfied, I will let them like now. About their copyright, it is the same: I have done them myself.

Thanks Sémhur for providing this info. I actually quite like the insets as they are: the less one knows about geography the more one has to zoom-in to get more info. Hope the colour scale can be added without affecting the elegance of the current layout. --ELEKHHT 21:50, 14 January 2013 (UTC)
Please add this to {{FPC urgents}} as soon as the new version's up. It should go just after Bay of Fires; you'll need to manually tweak the ||'s used to provide the second column of images, but getting it on the FPC urgents is probably more urgent, and I'll fix it as soon as I see it if you can't.

Actually, this is a clear case where suspension makes sense. Nomination suspended for editing. Adam Cuerden (talk) 22:15, 15 January 2013 (UTC)

Hello, I was sick, but I work on this map again now. OpenStreetMap wasn't finally a good source, I had to find another one. Sémhur 18:20, 24 January 2013 (UTC)

 Done. I have trouble with the cache, so if you still see the former version, please click in the picture or in a link below, for example 1000px. Sémhur 20:54, 27 January 2013 (UTC)
