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}}.

Round city of Baghdad[edit]

Hi. Could you please get a more accurate map with the description of the names of the gates according to their directions? Thanks. Shaimosmos (talk) 13:07, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

New map for Alaska[edit]

Alaska and related articles
We had a discussion on the talk page about the fact that many articles still use the awful style of map of the US that shows Alaska, very much not to scale, in a box off the coast of California. Nobody wants to use that in articles about Alaska. Currently the above image is what we’ve got to go with. It correctly shows the scale and location of Alaska, but there was some desire for a different version, showing just Alaska, adjoining areas of Canada, and the Pacific Northwest, with only Alaska being shaded. -- Beeblebrox (talk) 17:58, 6 July 2018 (UTC)

Indonesia and related


I feel like having IndonesiaRegenciesMap.svg like the US counties would come in handy in a lot of articles. The base provinces map is there, and there are images for the internal boundaries of most provinces here. Juxlos (talk) 23:39, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
