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}}.

Fracturing in US States Map[edit]

{{Map requested}}


Hydraulic fracturing in the United States

I am just wondering can somebody make a US state map for the page of Fracturing in the United States. which states ban it and which state have it legal. I know that the state of New York,and Vermont banned fracking in 2012, Maryland banned fracking in 2017, and Washington banned fracking in 2019.

@Evangelical10002: If you want someone to create this map, you should provide a source containing the data to be included in the map. This workshop is not a place to find researchers, only map makers. Auguel (talk) 19:19, 25 September 2019 (UTC)

I don't know anything about data or making maps. that's why I am asking. Evangelical10002 (talk) 16:09, 27 September 2019 (UTC)
We can make the map, but you should provide the source. If you're not sure what type of data is needed, you should just find a source (or several) indicating the policy of each state on hydraulic fracturing. You have a good start in your request indicating the policy of New York, Vermont, Maryland, and Washington (although this should be sourced), but you need to provide the information for every state. Auguel (talk) 17:14, 27 September 2019 (UTC)

Here is the source for Vermont[1], for Maryland [2], New York .[3][4] , and Washington.[5][6] Evangelical10002 (talk) 09:35, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Chad regions map errors[edit]

Hello, the map of the current Chadian regions is incorrect: It portrays the most recently created region (Ennedi-Est) as a small square, when in fact it extends all the way to the Libyan border. Oddly the correct map is shown on the little inset boxes on each region page. There appear to other errors with the borders for the other northern regions too. Sources for correct borders:

Legality of child pornography


The United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland should both be coloured orange on this map denoting the illegality of child pornography in both countries. Helper201 (talk) 05:19, 11 October 2019 (UTC)


Northmavine, Shetland[edit]

Description of the image
Northmavine, and various articles for places and features within Northmavine
Hi - Would it be possible to have a map made specifically for the Shetland parish of Northmavine? A relief map for Northmavine in the style of the Whalsay one above would be perfect. Thanks! -- Griceylipper (talk) 17:26, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
