The Graphics Lab is a project to improve the graphical content of the Wikimedia projects. Requests for image improvements can be added to the workshop pages: Illustrations, Photographs and Maps. For questions or suggestions one can use the talk pages: Talk:Graphics Lab, Talk:Illustrations, Talk:Photographs and Talk:Maps.
This specific page is the requests page for the Map workshop. Anyone can make a request for a map to be created or improved for a Wikipedia article. The standard format for making a request is shown below, along with general advice, and should be followed.
You are encouraged to share information and request advice from others. Also see possible conventions toolbox, map tutorials and topographic map tutorials.

Advice to requesters
  • Sourced requests: If possible, please try to provide a reliable source to create a map. This includes a map already on Wikipedia with a reliable source or an external link. Note that some of us have access to libraries and may have access to cited books.
  • Please check: Please check back regularly to see if progress has been made or if any additional questions need to be answered before the request can be completed.
  • Direct collaboration: Some mapmakers are especially interested by one area (e.g. India). If you notice a mapmaker fitting your needs, you can propose a direct collaboration, using his personal talk page to request maps.
  • {{Reqmap}}: To request a map, you can also tag the talk page of the article in need of a map with or {{Reqmapin|Australia}} (article then appear in Category:Wikipedia requested maps)
  • {{Resolved}}: If a request is done to your satisfaction, please mark it with {{resolved}}.

1900 map of London[edit]

Siege of Sidney Street
Request
Hi, I wonder if someone could help and advise with a map I want some work done on? There is an excellent map of London here on which I want to highlight two locations (They were the places of murder and mayhem involved in the Siege of Sidney Street. I'm working on the article in userspace to take it to FA.)
I can show exactly where the two buildings are if some is willing to help. I'm also unsure if there is an ideal way of pinpointing them on the map that is clear enough to show but that doesn't obstruct the detail, so any advice would be most welcome.

Multiple icons, but no relief, even with relief=1 or alt=physical

We have two versions of Russia, Southern Federal District. They differ slightly by lat/long.

  • Map1 has relief but does not allow multiple icons
  • Map2 allows multiple icons but does not allow relief (at least by what I tried)
  • The originator of Map1 was able to make multiple icons on Map1 on the Russian Wiki (Commons User=Hellerick/ discussion/ last line/ click). He used "alt=physical" and Cyrillic map names. Is there a way to combine relief and multiple icons on the English Wiki? Either Map1 or Map2 would work. Either I could not locate the correct template(?) or there is a template that does not copy from Russian to English.Benjamin Trovato (talk) 23:25, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Request

For those who have time on their hands.
The Category:Maps by United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs is filled with maps from around the world. It came under my attention because there are watermarks in the images. I (and others) have been busy removing the watermarks from the images.
Until I remarked that upon enlarging the image, parts of the text in the images becomes garbled up. See the above mentioned images at 2000px. The reason for this is that the text is probably pasted into the images. When one takes a look into the stroke paint it says: "Stroke paint: Unset paint (make it undefined so it can be inherited). No fill and no stroke paint.
There is the additional problem that there are many empty elements in the images.
So, for those who have nothing to do, there is a challenge here.— Preceding unsigned comment added by [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] ([[User talk:{{{1}}}|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/{{{1}}}|contribs]]) —Preceding undated comment added an unspecified datestamp.

Requesting a map of Southeast Asia c1750. The Kingdom of Lan Xang was divided into three kingdoms: Luang Prabang, Vientiane, and Champasak (with the province of Xieng Khouang in Modern Laos being a possible fourth). I tried contacting the editor that produced the original maps for Southeast Asia but haven't ever received a response. There currently is only one map on the internet showing this historical period and it is inaccurate. There are a number of maps showing the division, but can be difficult to find (I can email photos of the pages). Page 17 of A History of Laos, by Martin Stuart Fox (ISBN: 978-0-521-59235-2) is most widely available.

History of South America

(Please be aware that, since this article is undergoing copy-editing and an overhaul by various editors, the wording of that caption may change.) The map shows the areas of South America that were under the control of various European countries between 1700 and (I guess) the present. The coloring on the map changes as the time progresses. However, it changes so quickly that it is hard to take in the information available on the map. If you're looking at the year at the top, you miss the change in the map. If you're looking at the changes in the map, you miss the year. I'm wondering if someone could slow the map down a bit. That's all.  – Corinne (talk) 01:58, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

The map used now in the article shows the countries by PPP-GDP per capita, i. e. nominal GDP/capita * PPP = PPP-GDP/per capita, so such a map does not show the topic of the article. Actually, we "had" File:PPP2003.svg (now removed from most articles), using data at least a decade old and using somewhat "doubtful" data as for countries like Iraq or Argentina, no PPP data can be found in the World Banks database.--Antemister (talk) 08:31, 24 April 2016 (UTC)

Image's request under progression Request taken by —Odysseus1479 02:16, 7 June 2016 (UTC). I’ll give it try; no guarantee of seamlessness.

Thanks a lot! Fentener van Vlissingen (talk) 18:58, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
@Fentener van Vlissingen: I’ve done the basic assembly, but before I finish I‘d like some input. The panels are slightly distorted, mainly I guess from warping of the paper as it aged, with the result that they don’t match up very well, even after slight scale & rotation transformations to make each panel as square as possible. So the dilemma I’m facing is between 1) butting them together as best I can, while breaking some lines and obscuring some features along the affected edges, and 2) leaving a little space between the panels, with the result that the overall scale will no longer be continuous. The advantage of the first option is that it would better resemble a single map (from a distance, at least), but the second would minimize damage along the seams and give context to the anomalies by showing the entire frame of each panel. Which would you rather see?—Odysseus1479 22:45, 3 July 2016 (UTC)
@Odysseus1479: I think I would prefer the second option, I don't mind a little space between the panels as long as the impression of a single map is not entirely lost. Obscuring some features would be worse in my opinion. Thanks again for the work you put into it already! Fentener van Vlissingen (talk) 15:04, 4 July 2016 (UTC)
@Fentener van Vlissingen: I’ve uploaded a PNG version. I did only a little retouching; have a close look and let me know if there‘s something that especially needs attention—a proper restoration would take more time & skill than I can offer, but I‘m prepared to put a little more into it … The colour depth has been reduced to minimize the file size without resorting to JPEG compression. This has made the background look rather blotchy, but preserves the map detail and the legibility of the type. If you don‘t care for that compromise, other options are available.—Odysseus1479 08:41, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
@Odysseus1479:Thanks a lot for the assembled map! I think it looks great, my main problem with the individual sheets was that they barely looked like a map on their own. The assembled map gives context while keeping intact the details of the sheets. Well done, thanks again. Fentener van Vlissingen (talk) 16:23, 28 July 2016 (UTC)

Connacht Counties Maps - Local Borders[edit]

Similar to some of my above requests, could someone please remove the border within County Tipperary, and also the former borders of Waterford City Council, in order to reflect the changes of the Local Government Reform Act 2014, on all of the above maps. User:Snow Lion Fenian
Graphist opinion(s)

I could easily do this by converting those SVG maps to PNG, and editing and uploading the PNGs. However there is a widely-held view that I should not do this as vector-format is better than raster-format. In fact those images have a structure (over 7000 lines of unreadable and uncommented SVG) that combines all the disadvantages of both, making it impossible for me (and others, judging by previous requests here) to work on them.

Please let me know if you would like me to ignore the official advice and upload the PNGs anyway. Maproom (talk) 08:30, 23 June 2016 (UTC)

The SVG code here is clearly sub-standard, I will look to improve the code for the base map (Island of Ireland location map.svg). Please do not upload any PNGs in meantime.--Nilfanion (talk) 09:14, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
I think I'll need to entirely rebuild the map. There is an additional problem, as Northern Ireland shows the obsolete districts, and these will need to be fixed as well. Final map will have "good" code! :)--Nilfanion (talk) 10:03, 23 June 2016 (UTC)
We meet again Nilfanion on the topic of maps :-) Me and Rannpháirtí anaithnid created all these county maps, however they weren't perfect at the time and where created to give the general view of the county in question. If you can improve them then please do so. I don't have any real ability with SVG code, and I found it incredibly awkward colouring in the original SVG file via Adobe Illustrator. The maps would also probably look better following the standard colouring convention for maps. But I'll be happy with whatever you come up with as they will be an improvement! Mabuska (talk) 23:37, 26 June 2016 (UTC)
I've updated File:Island of Ireland location map.svg. It shows the current districts in both Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, and the code has been tidied.
Maproom, Mabuska - the code is a lot simpler now. Each county or district has its own path and is labelled with the county name, eg changing the fill of Co_Antrim from "none" to "#fbc1c1" shades County Antrim to the same pink as the previous maps. Other colours are also possible of course. It should be trivial to get the above maps updated now.
Snow Lion Fenian, you may want to double check the entire set of maps. The provisions of the Local Government (Boundaries) Order (Northern Ireland) 2012 and the Local Government Reform Act 2014 both need to be accounted for.--Nilfanion (talk) 12:46, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

1) The borders between all the republics of the Soviet Union, all the components of Yugoslavia, and the border between the Czech Republic and Slovakia (then Czechoslovakia) needs to be removed.

2) The border between Rwanda and Burundi (then Ruanda-Urundi) should be removed, and the territory changed to light blue to mark its status as a Belgian trust territory.

3) For similar reasons to my above requests, could some remove the borders between Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi. (then joined as the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland)

4) Ghana gained independence in 1957, so it should be changed from red to grey.

5) Although Malaya gained independence in 1957, East Malaysia remained British until 1963, so it needs to be changed to red.

6) Eritrea was part of Ethiopia at the time.

If anyone could make at least some of these changes, I'd greatly appreciate it, thanks. User:Snow Lion Fenian

1) Egypt and Iraq gained independence from Britain in 1922 and 1932 respectively, so they should be changed from red to grey.

2) Togo was a French colonial mandate (as French Togoland) at the time, yet it is coloured brown as if it were still a German colony. It needs to be changed to blue.

3) Removal of the borders between all the components of French West Africa (Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Senegal, Guinea, Benin, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso).

4) Removal of the borders between the components of French Equatorial Africa (Chad, Central African Republic, the Congo, Gabon).

5) Removal of the borders between India, Pakistan and Bangladesh (then part of British India).

6) Removal of the borders between Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia (Then part of French Indochina).

7) Removal of the border between Rwanda and Burundi (then Ruanda-Urundi).

8) Removal of the all the borders between the purple areas of the Soviet Union (except Mongolia, which was under Soviet influence, but not part of it)

9) Removal of the border between the two Koreas.

10) Removal of the borders between the components of Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia.

11) Moldova was part of Romania at the time.

12) Removal of the border between Israel and Palestine, then part of Britain's Mandatory Palestine.

13) Cuba should be changed from light purple to grey, as it gained independence from the United States in 1902

I would like a svg map of Somaliland using the conventions found at Wikipedia:WikiProject Maps/Conventions/Orthographic maps, examples being the China and India maps above, uploaded to File:Somaliland (orthographic projection).svg on commons. The map needs a light green area in the east. As far as I can tell Template:Somali_Civil_War_detailed_map seems to be fairly accurate, with the yellow dots showing what should be dark green. The light green area should start east of the two cities of Erigavo and Las Anod, and go to the claimed borders which are shown here. Thanks, CMD (talk) 22:46, 10 July 2016 (UTC)

Edit:I see I missed redrawing the east/right side of the Maakhir disputed border, so will have to take another stab at that when I get another free moment. But once I have that done based on File:Map of somaliland border claims.jpg, will that be good? Offnfopt(talk) 02:54, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
The standard, as done in the India and China maps above, is to base the colour on that country's control not on what others claim. Hence for example Arunachal Pradesh being dark green on the India map while it is light green on the China map (controlled by India), and Aksai Chin being dark green on the China map while being light green on the India map (controlled by China).
Hence the dark green should include Erigavo and Las Anod, but not Badhan. Where the line lies in between is hard to say, and quite porous, so that can be quite a rough guess! CMD (talk) 07:28, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
Is there a existing file I can base the changes on? Or would it be possible for you to save one of the maps as png/jpeg and draw lines to show where the boundaries should be (aesthetics don't matter, just for reference by me)? You could draw the lines in any imaging program you have, even mspaint or gimp, etc and upload the image to imgur or a similar site, I could then just overlay that image on mine and re-adjust the borders to match that image. Offnfopt(talk) 08:54, 15 July 2016 (UTC)
It's tricky because the conflict is still simmering, but unreported in English sources. File:Somalia_map_states_regions_districts.png isn't bad, but is slightly out of date, as from what I know in the south Widh-Widh and Kalabayd have fallen under Somaliland control since then. Still with that slight adjustment, that file should provide a helpful baseline? CMD (talk) 12:39, 15 July 2016 (UTC)

Hi, I wanted to know if anyone could make a surname map image for the Maiorana article, or if not, know someone who can? Based on the ones on Griffin (surname) and Jones (surname) pages (which come from this website [3]), it should cover U.K. and Ireland. The website explains how it works, but basically areas with higher density of people (Wigan and Lancashire, etc. in Maiorana's case) are dark red and areas with no people with Maiorana name (Scotland, etc.) stay white, with shades of pink for less people. Here is the numbers of U.K. Maioranas [4](but the numbers don't have to show up on the image). If it's something you can do I'd appreciate it very much and it would be a great benefit to the page, thank you.2A02:C7D:C22A:F600:DD4A:3D0:7A78:7031 (talk) 01:02, 17 July 2016 (UTC)

2) Eritrea was part of Ethiopia at the time.

3) Singapore had already ceased to be British before 1974, so it should be changed to grey.

4) Brunei should be shaded red, as it was a British protectorate until 1984.

5) The Seychelles were British until 1976, so they should also be shaded red.

6) Zimbabwe didn't officially gain independence until 1980, so it should probably be red too.

Request
This map was made today after a request by me. However it shows the wrong location when entering the coordinates of a place. The reason behind this seems to be the latitude of the western boundary of the missing disputed Kafia Kingi area being used as the latitude for the boundary between Lol State (I have included the images of new states) Kafia Kingi and Lol State. The boundary earlier divided Kafia Kingi and the former Western Bahr el Ghazal state. I had to undo all my updates to locations of many places due to the map showing wrong locations. I request that either the missing Kafia Kingi area be drawn in the map with the latitudes unchaged (I have included the old location map of South Sudan that shows Kafia Kingi for reference). If you can't then please atleast correct the latitude of the western boundary of the Lol state. Thank you. DinoBambinoNFS (talk) 23:58, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

Maproom The latitudes have been shifted. That is why the locations are out of place every time I add their coordinates. Please base the map on the old location map, and not just the eight-coloured new states map. The new states for the map should only be used as a reference for boundaries of new states. If you don't believe me that there is a problem, please try typing the coordinates of any South Sudan location. You will see that it shows the location at the wrong place.

There's no telling if your new comment will even be answered back. DinoBambinoNFS (talk) 12:15, 22 August 2016 (UTC)

Greater Pibor Administrative Area
Request

Hello. I would like to request you to make a new map highlighting Greater Pibor Administrative Area in the old Jonglei State in South Sudan. Greater Pibor existed from 2014 - 2015 as a semi-autonomous area under the former lower eastern parts of Jonglei State before creation of new states and was replaced by Boma State after creation of the new states. Here's 2 sources I found whose image maps you can use as a reference to draw Greater Pibor region :

  • [5] - Scroll down for this one
  • [6] - In the top of this page is the image.

I hope you will create a map of the area. Please draw the map from the locator map I've given above highlighting the old Jonglei state and use a different color to highlight Greater Pibor. I will be highly obliged. Thank you. DinoBambinoNFS (talk) 06:11, 14 August 2016 (UTC)

City of Venice[edit]

Article(s)
St. Mark's Cathedral, La Fenice, Piazza San Marco, Doge's Palace, etc.
Request
There is currently no available map of the city of Venice, Italy. Several of the articles I am working on would benefit from such a map. If anyone is available, I would much appreciate it. Ergo Sum 03:02, 16 August 2016 (UTC)

Relief location maps of states in the USA[edit]

Article(s)
Climate of Minnesota
Colorado § Climate (showing the locations of cities whose climate is compared), Pikes Peak, Longs Peak, Mount Elbert
Climate of Oregon, Mount Hood, other articles on mountains in Oregon
Request
California, Washington, and North Carolina have topographical location maps with county borders. Many states don't. Ideally, all states should: topographical maps are best for showing the natural contours of the state and providing the context in which a city, mountain, or other natural feature is located, in climate or geography articles. The current blank location maps with county boundaries and rivers are okay, but adding topography would make them so much better.
For an example, compare the bare location map (places whose temperatures are compared in Climate of California) with the relief version:
The relief map gives perspective on why some of the cities have similar climates. For instance, those in interior valleys are hot in the summer, while those at higher elevations are cooler. The corresponding bare map only gives perspective on the locations along the coast, since it does not show elevation.
Really, most states could benefit from relief location maps, but I picked three that I am interested in. — Eru·tuon 08:34, 21 August 2016 (UTC)

Please don't merely add relief to existing maps; if you take this request and add relief, please upload it as a new map. In many cases, especially the historic-site articles on which I routinely work, the addition of relief would make the article somewhat less useful. Nyttend (talk) 17:29, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

Add a scale[edit]

Article(s)
Lots of articles, including {{Location map San Marino}}, and Special:GlobalUsage/San_Marino_location_map.svg seems to indicate that it's used on 502 different pages WMF-wide
Request
Could you edit map #1 by adding a simple miles-and-km scale? Map #2 has a scale, so you don't need to wonder how big the country is, and you don't need to pull up Google Maps to find out. Nyttend (talk) 20:15, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
