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}}.

File:Time zones of Europe.svg - Crimea[edit]

County Tipperary and Waterford City[edit]

Stale

Article(s): Every article these maps are already on.

Request:

On 3 June 2014, The Local Government Reform Act 2014 merged North Tipperary and South Tipperary into a single county called Tipperary, and also merged together Waterford City Council and Waterford County Council. So would someone please remove the border between North and South Tipperary and the border of Waterford City on all the above maps.

-Snow Lion Fenian-

Graphist opinion(s):

Maybe you are all set with Commons:Category:SVG locator maps of administrative counties in Ireland (location map scheme)? It incorporates the recent changes in Ireland. It features a different graphical approach, though. (There's clearly too much green when it comes to Ireland) Besides the different color, I don't show Northern Ireland's administrative borders, 'cause it's a different country (some folks don't get that straight ;-). "Your" maps above also show historic borders for Nothern Ireland, which annoys me the the most. For modern NI borders check out Commons:Category:SVG locator maps of districts in Northern Ireland (location map scheme). --TUBS (talk) 09:50, 9 October 2014 (UTC)
In addition: afaik, Limerick city and the respective county merged. These (hard to spot) borders were also removed. --TUBS (talk) 17:24, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

Ambassador Bridge Map request[edit]

Article(s)
Ambassador_Bridge
Request
I am requesting a new map detailing the location of the Amabassador Bridge. The current map is unsatisfactory because it is largely based on a map of Michigan. I request that a new map be made that is more 'zoomed' in so that it includes more of Ontario and better reflects the nature of the bridge as bordering two countries.

@ACanadianToker: Can you take a look at this site, which provides free license maps? Here is is zoomed in on the bridge. You can pan out to get the detail you want, then down load the map as .png. That would be an easy way. You could also look around at maps of other bridges, such as Brooklyn Bridge to get a better sense of the design you would like. Do you want details of city streets, or just gray scale, or colors for Canada and Michigan? Maybe ask this at the article talk page to get consensus? Gaff (talk) 19:40, 6 January 2015 (UTC)
@Gaff: Hello, I tried to edit the map in OSM but was unable to change anything. I have this picture, which I think is most appropriate. Ideally a map would be like this, in colors for Michigan and Ontario With Detroit and Windsor both listed. As for streets I think they could be left off. I appreciate your help, Gaff.

Do you want a map holding the area your OSM includes?

Didn't you want the bridge to be zoomed in on, how? --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:39, 20 August 2015 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: Hello, I think that the level of zoom in the OSM picture I made is adequate. Right now the picture shows more of the state of Michigan than anything, and a new map should better reflect that it is on the border of Michigan and Ontario. As for roads I would think that less is more, perhaps only the major highways (401 in Ontario, Interstate highways in Michigan). I hope I made that more clear, if not please let me know. Thank you for your efforts. - A Canadian Toker (talk) 22:31, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

The liner from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv needs to be extended to Herzliya, and the Rishon LeZion HaRishonim to Netanya - see here (the stations on the map are all labeled in English as well as Hebrew). Additionally, I suspect that the colors of the lines should probably be chaned, because they're used on the map only for the purpose of distinguishing the separate lines on the map, and they have nothing to do with reality, so copying them may be a copyvio. עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 12:04, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

How does this look? I took some liberties with the layout to avoid angled text, which I think hurts the readability of the map. Cheers, Mliu92 (talk) 21:52, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
@Od Mishehu: Sorry, forgot to ping you the first time I updated this. Cheers, Mliu92 (talk) 21:47, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
@Mliu92:Actually, the lines across (where the angled text was necessary) represent lines which go East-West = for example, Jerusalem is more or less east of Beit Shemesh (and if anything, a little north, not south); and the line from the northern end of Tel Aviv to Kfar Saba goes east until past Petah Tikva, north through Rosh HaAyin, and then west to Hod HaSharon and Kfar Saba, which is approximately east of Herzliya (not Atlit). עוד מישהו Od Mishehu 10:09, 7 July 2015 (UTC)

Question about text in SVG files[edit]

If I am creating an SVG file, I check what it looks like in my browser. The fonts my browser uses to render the text in it are presumably determined somewhere under my control.

When I upload the SVG to Commons, some program there renders the SVG into .svg.png files that are served out to the various Wikipedias. This program has some default fonts which are different from the ones my browser uses, so my SVG sometimes looks wrong: pieces of text don't fit in the boxes I drew for them.

A sensible solution would be for me to change my browser's default fonts to the ones the renderer on Commons uses. How can I find out what these are? Maproom (talk) 20:19, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

You need to convert the text to path in your svg editor so that it will appear the same everywhere. Rcsprinter123 (articulate) @ 20:35, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
Not necessarily, see c:Help:SVG#Fonts / text and make sure that you use one of the fonts listed there. --Redrose64 (talk) 21:21, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

Wharf map of London[edit]

Map of wharves on the River Thames, London published in 1905

I've photographed an out-of-copyright 1905 map of the River Thames wharves in central and east London. It needs to be stitched together - there are six segments divided between two horizontal strips, each with three segments at the top and three at the bottom. The colours also need to be equalised and the segments need to be correctly sized and positioned alongside each other. The segments are:

Could someone please help with this? Prioryman (talk) 21:23, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

I have some software designed to do that; but it requires at least some overlap between each pair of adjacent segments. My impression is that the 1st and 2nd have a gap between them (ok, maybe no gap, but no overlap as required: look at London Bridge station), and the 5th and 6th have no overlap. Maproom (talk) 21:33, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
I think the gaps exist on the original map. It consists of a sheet of cloth onto which squares of map have been glued, so there are gaps between the individual squares. I presume they made it that way to be more resistant to folding than it would be if it was a single sheet of paper. Prioryman (talk) 21:48, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Ah, that's what the OS called the "dissected" edition. They stopped making these by the end of 1952, but they carried on making the non-dissected cloth-backed maps until circa 1967. --Redrose64 (talk) 23:15, 2 April 2015 (UTC)
Interesting, I didn't know that. It's not an OS map so I'd guess they weren't the only ones producing maps in that style. Is it possible to put it together, albeit with gaps? Prioryman (talk) 07:09, 3 April 2015 (UTC)
@Maproom: Do you want to do this? If not let me know and I'll get my sellotape out. Cheers,  Philg88 talk 07:20, 7 April 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── @Prioryman: After some resizing and cropping, this is what it looks like.

China-Pakistan Economic Corridor[edit]

Would someone be able to create a map for the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor using the model supplied here? The article is badly in need of a map. Currently, the ones that have been used have all been taken from somewhere in the internet and deleted for copyright. I can't find a free or public version. Hence, it would be great if someone here could do the cartography. The link I've given is reliable, as the map has been designed by the National Highways Authority (Pakistan) and has their logo on it. Mar4d (talk) 14:07, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Also, that map uses the term Indian Occupied Kashmir for Indian-administered Kashmir, but for NPOV purposes, it may be better to have a map that uses Jammu and Kashmir, the official name of the disputed territory. Mar4d (talk) 14:08, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
  • I will suggest to creators that, using bare term Jammu and Kashmir in Pakistan map will suggest that Jammu and Kashmir is one of state of Pakistan while in reality it is one of democratic state of India. so better term should be used in map will be "Indian administered Kashmir" for Indian side and "Pakistan administered Kashmir" for Pakistan side of Kashmir. United Nations maps do have such terms. If Pakistan side of Kashmir is not mentioned as "Pakistan administered Kashmir" then that Map will be nominated for deletion on Wikimedia. --Human3015 Say Hey!! • 16:03, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
It's a map of Pakistan. Like all the other maps, all the provinces have their own names, including Pakistan-administered Kashmir. The only reason why Jammu and Kashmir is added is because it's a territorial claim. Mar4d (talk) 16:50, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
Pakistan government itself consider "Paksitan administered Kashmir" as "disputed territory". see map on Pakistan's government site. This map can be seen on all Pakistan's government websites. If both side of Kashmir is disputed then why only Indian side should be called as "Administered side". It is map of "only" Pakistan on government websites still they show "Pak administered Kashmir" as "disputed" one. So there should be no question regarding this issue that both sides should be called as "administered side".--Human3015 Say Hey!! • 17:06, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
You showed me one map, but there are thousands of maps and I can show you any with Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan doesn't dispute Kashmir as its claimed territory, it only disputes its status. This article is on the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, not the Kashmir conflict, so such maps are not relevant. As a major portion of the project is concentrated in Gilgit-Baltistan, an official map accurately showing the territory and all the other Administrative units of Pakistan would be required. And by the way, you won't find any official map of Pakistan where Kashmir is excluded. Mar4d (talk) 18:48, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
If you can show me "thousands of maps" then please show 10 maps from Pakistan's government websites. If this article is about China and Pakistan then no need to show Indian state in it. If Pakistan claims Jammu and Kashmir then India also claims Pakistan side of Kashmir. I can show "thousands of Maps" from Indian government websites. You will say this is article about Pakistan, then it doesn't mean that Government of Pakistan owns this article. We have to write article on the basis of international standards, not on local standards. Anyway, don't debate on it. I was just giving my opinion to creators, not to you. Hope creators got my point. This is sensitive issue and any wrong map will be nominated for deletion on Wikimedia commons. Thank you.--Human3015 Say Hey!! • 19:05, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Map for Nanded division and Aurangabad division[edit]

Location of old Aurangabad division in Maharashtra. Now this division is divided and new Nanded division has been carved out of it.

The above mentioned articles Nanded division and Aurangabad division are under construction. There is old map of Aurangabad division I have given. Work is very simple, just remove Nanded district, Parbhani district, Hingoli district and Latur district from given map, it will become current valid map of Aurangabad division. Then remove Aurangabad district, Jalna district, Beed district and Osmanabad district from map then it will be a valid map of Nanded division. You can identify districts by clicking on respective district and see location on Wikipedia page of those districts. Thank you. (Hope you understood).--Human3015 Say Hey!! • 15:16, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

Note: Earlier Aurangabad division used to have 8 districts in it as shown in map, but recently new Nanded division having 4 districts is carved out of earlier Aurangabad division, so this map is no more valid now. Now both divisions have 4 districts in it. And it needs map. Maharashtra has total 7 such divisions. --Human3015 Say Hey!! • 04:08, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

Wereldburger758, I have edited this map and posted in respective articles of Aurangabad division(File:Aurangabad division2.png) and Nanded division (File:Nanded division.png).

If I use a derivitative work, I always take the licence of the original work. That is, in some cases, required. That way I am always on the safe side. So I changed the licences of both works. I also changed the source of both files. I cannot create new files because I don't have the time for that now. But it is not a difficult task.

Ming Empire map[edit]

Warning I'm beginner editor of Wikipedia, and I need the help of a high-ranking member who knows how to create a map and who has knowledge of historical China especially Ming Empire. As you can deduce from my words yes I'm intent on creating a Ming Empire, with provinces and prefectures(smaller districts).

Welcome and we all learn all the time from each other. First it would be good if you used the "—New request—" link at the top of the page as that gives us all the code within a request that we need during the work with it. So please se if you can correct that.
I don't really understand what you mean by a "high-ranking member", maybe you mean experienced? It seems like you want to create a map which will be comprehensive in many aspects and will have to be planned thoroughly. I don't really know if you will be able to find a graphic worker who also has knowledge of "historical China especially Ming Empire", sounds like it will be hard.

Near the start of the SVG source is the following element:
  <style
     type="text/css"
     id="style3">
    .gt54  { fill: #ff0000; } /* gt 54% */
    .gte50 { fill: #ff6600; } /* 50%-54% */
    .gte45 { fill: #ff9400; } /* 45%-49% */
    .gte40 { fill: #fec500; } /* 40%-44% */
    .gte35 { fill: #ffff00; } /* 35%-39% */
    .gte30 { fill: #8cc700; } /* 30%-34% */

    .lt25  { fill: #00a3c7; } /* lt 25% */
    .na    { fill: #999999; } /* no data */
  </style>

These nine fill: values represent the nine colours                                              respectively, so it's a simple matter of adjusting the ones that are less distinguishable. The first and last can probably stay the same, and the eighth probably can too, so six replacement colours need to be chosen. All other colours (both fill and stroke) in the drawing are blacks and greys, which need not be altered. --Redrose64 (talk) 10:43, 19 June 2015 (UTC)

I don't understand what you mean "That's easy" because then you maybe can do it by yourself.
Normally one recommends not more than five steps to make a really true map for everyone to be able to view. This scheme is as close to a monochromatic as you can get but instead with blue color, no real difference. Also you didn't give me any feedback on my draft. Please just tell me if it works or not. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:43, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
That was the feedback. I meant that it's easy to understand your draft, so easy that monochromats (people who can't see any color at all, who see everything in various shades of grey) could still understand it. Nyttend (talk) 19:45, 8 July 2015 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: I notice that you didn't adjust the colour values in the <style>...</style> element (as I suggested at 10:43, 19 June 2015), instead you left those alone and added a fill: property to every separate shape. This makes it much more difficult to change the colours in future. --Redrose64 (talk) 20:13, 8 July 2015 (UTC)

I find the colors a little confusing in this map. The legend mentions yellow for areas where Alans settled, red [lines] for routes taken by civilians, and orange [lines] for military excursions. However, one of the red lines, the shorter one below the long one, looks a little orange, and the short, thin lines proceeding from the yellow settlement areas look too yellow to be called orange. Is there any way to make the military excursions look truly orange and the red lines to look really red? I presume the military excursions are the pale orange-yellow ones proceeding from the yellow settlement areas, but I'm not sure. Perhaps if one or both lines were another color, such as blue or purple, there would be no possibility of confusion. CorinneSD (talk) 22:36, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Converting JPEG to SVG is fraught with many problems, not least of which is the completely different philosophies (raster graphics vs vector graphics). It would be easier, I think, to use one of the existing SVG maps as a starting point, and recolour that. At the original request, two SVGs were displayed: File:Ireland trad counties named ga.svg and File:Counties of the island of Ireland.svg and I think that the second of these would be most suitable. --Redrose64 (talk) 16:28, 30 June 2015 (UTC)
Thank you very much. I agree that the second would be most suitable. However, I attempted to use that map as-is (i.e. with the same colouring), and this is what happened -

That error message doesn't mean a fault with the map, it means that the country name "Counties of the island of Ireland" isn't registered with the {{location map+}} suite. It shouldn't be: instead, the first unnamed parameter should stay as |Ireland, with other parameters being used to obtain the map data (name, corner coordinates, etc.) that should be set in {{Location map Ireland}}. --Redrose64 (talk) 16:29, 2 July 2015 (UTC)

This map is supposed to show the maximum area of settlement of the Cucuteni-Trypillian culture at a certain point in the past.

If one is familiar with those outlines, the countries will be easily recognized, but for readers unfamiliar with the outlines, the map is not very helpful. If the countries could be labeled, and perhaps the outlines of the countries made a little bolder, to distinguish them from the outlines of states/provinces, it would make this map much more informative. — Preceding unsigned comment added by CorinneSD (talkcontribs) 01:29, 1 July 2015

Daher el-Omar maximum extent map[edit]

Article(s)
Daher el-Omar
Request

A map that shows the maximum extent of Daher el-Omar's autonomous sheikhdom in 1744. At its peak, Daher's sheikhdom included parts of modern-day Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, Jordan and to a lesser extent Syria. Specifically it included the coastal plain from Gaza to Beirut (length) and Jaffa to Ramla (width), the whole Galilee, Jezreel Valley and Jabal Amil (South Governorate and Nabatieh Governorate minus Hasbaya District), Jabal Ajlun (Ajlun Governorate and Irbid Governorate). It also included nominal, but not actual control of Jerusalem and Nablus and their respective districts i.e. central Israel/Palestine. The latter could be reflected in the map or excluded completely.

Major localities that were actually part of the sheikhdom that need to be denoted include the following: Gaza, Jaffa, Ramla, Acre, Haifa, al-Tantura, Shefa-'Amr, Deir Hanna, Arraba, Khirbat Jiddin, Tiberias, Nazareth, Safad, Irbid, Ajlun, Beirut, Sidon, Tyre and Tibnin. Other localities significant to the sheikhdom, but to a lesser degree are Bi'ina, Saffuriya, Deir al-Qassi, al-Bassah, Yaroun, Abu Snan, Tira, Qaqun, I'billin, Tarbikha and Suhmata. Places of significance but outside Daher's actual control in 1774 include Nablus, Jerusalem, Sanur and Damascus. The map should zoom, in so to speak, on the Levant, but also highlight the territory of the Ottoman Empire and perhaps its increasingly autonomous Egypt Eyalet province.

There are no maps out there showing the maximum extent of Daher's control or few if any that show his longtime control of the Galilee. In my opinion, the map would add incredible value to the subject's article (which I intend to nominate for GA soon) and for any readers interested in the subject who would be able to have a better idea of Daher's autonomous sheikhdom. The information I have listed above is derived by the reliable sources used in the subject article, in particular Thomas Phillipp's Acre: The Rise and Fall of a Palestinian City, 1730-1831 and Ahmad Hasan Joudah's Revolt in Palestine in the Eighteenth Century: The Era of Shaykh Zahir Al-ʻUmar.

The red square is perfect. --Al Ameer (talk) 16:34, 19 July 2015 (UTC) @Goran tek-en: Actually, considering the fact that there probably won't be enough room to label all of his principal headquarters in the Galilee, I've reduced the maximum area. See the yellow box here. --Al Ameer (talk) 00:37, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
@Al Ameer son:I had to redraw the map because is was not accurate enough for this. I have now added all the different locations but all the names have not been worked with so they way they are shown will change, it's a draft.
  • In this draft I have both areas and if we go for the yellow you will loose one place.
  • I have no idea of how to understand the extent/borders of Daher el-Omar empire. You will have to tell me or show me a map/drawing. Remember that I have zero knowledge of this, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:09, 23 July 2015 (UTC)

@Al Ameer son: Now there is a new draft for you to look at and give me feedback on. In this draft I haven't removed any localities but edited other stuff. Have a look at it and if you still want me to remove the localities above I will of course do so but it didn't feel so good to remove those places as I guess they are important to the map. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:29, 25 July 2015 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: The map is shaping up nicely. I've uploaded this draft with requested changes. The requested changes are the following:
  • Elimination of the localities that have been erased (i.e. Shefa-'Amr, Saffuriya, Yaroun, al-Bassa, Tira, Ajlun, Khirbat Jiddin, Abu Snan, Bi'ina, Tarbikha, Deir al-Qassi, Suhmata, Tyre and Qaqun)
  • The labeling of all other localities remaining on the map instead of the legend, including Damascus, Jerusalem, Nablus and Sanur. The change in color from white to black for the following localities: Irbid, Ajlun, Haifa, Tantura, Jaffa, Gaza, Ramla, Sidon, Tyre, Tibnin, Safad and Beirut. The following should be kept white and denoted in the legend as "Zahir's seats of power": Acre, Nazareth, Tiberias, Arraba and Deir Hanna.
  • The modern-day (2015) borders should be replaced by the Ottoman provincial boundaries of the 18th century, which I drew in red. The three provinces that should be labeled are Sidon Eyalet, Damascus Eyalet and Egypt Eyalet.
  • The Hauran, Jabal Amil, Mount Lebanon, Jabal Nablus and Galilee geographic regions should be mentioned in italics. I added them to the draft but you could adjust the style to however you see fit.
  • Some form of stripe shading should be applied to the territory of Zahir's vassal, Sheikh Nasif al-Nassar. I highlighted the area in green. --Al Ameer (talk) 20:36, 25 July 2015 (UTC)
It would had been great if you told me about the bordes from the beginning, it would have saved work for me. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:00, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: My apologies. To be honest I had not thought of that aspect until I saw your latest draft. --Al Ameer (talk) 18:40, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
@Al Ameer son: I'm sorry, It just felt like to much for a moment. I do understand that you couldn't see that coming.
New draft to look at. With those things;
  • First you asked me to eliminate Aljun and then to change the color from white to black, but I just removed it?
  • I removed the names Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon, was that correct?
  • I didn't add the arrows yet, I need some kind of explanation to them. It helps me to shape/form then and for the legend. Give me feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:49, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
  • @Goran tek-en: Everything you just mentioned above is fine and thank you for your patience. I understand this is not a region you're very familiar with. The arrows were not meant to be included in the final map. I only added them to give you a better idea about the areas that those geographic regions covered. All the critical aspects are finished, all that remains are some style adjustments: The font and color of the geographic names and provinces should be more distinct from each other, but if this is too time-consuming then no big deal. Could the Mount Lebanon, Galilee and Jabal Amil geographic regions appear vertically/diagonally as depicted in my Revised Draft. And finally, "Daher el-Omar" should be replaced with "Zahir al-Umar" in the map's title due to the article's recent name change. The map should be all set after that. --Al Ameer (talk) 20:42, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
@Al Ameer son: New draft to look at. I'm not to keen on putting names diagonally as it reduces the readability. Look at my draft and see if that's OK. As I don't really understand what areas is meant by the Geographic regions respectively Provinces names it's hard for me to place them more correct. If you want we can add some very thin shades to show them.
Actually I have spent quite some time in that area but it was not during that time span...
When we are done I will need the following;
  • Name of the file
  • Description
  • Category/ies at commons
to be able to upload it at commons. Give me feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 17:35, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Some very minor corrections? You can remove the ACC1, ACC2 and ACC3 labels. I think these were base names, but if so they would be better left somewhere else. The icons seem to be behind the geography, you can see it where the missile icons are half-on/half-off. The labels for Boston and New York at missing. Finally, the captions in the lower left should read "missiles" not "missile", they had lots at each site. Nice work on the MSR faces BTW! Maury Markowitz (talk) 22:00, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

It took me a while to find Alor Island on this map. It's way up in the upper right-hand corner. Also, some readers may not be familiar with the other islands, so even if they see the island labeled "Alor", they may not be able to visualize where Alor is. I'm wondering if someone could find or create a map that shows the island of Alor more toward the center of the map and that includes slightly more of the surrounding islands.

I wish to use the map below to plot locations, but when I do. this happens:

Lua error in Module:Location_map/multi at line 13: Unable to find the specified location map definition. Neither "Module:Location map/data/Counties of the island of Ireland" nor "Template:Location map Counties of the island of Ireland" exists.

I'm advised that "the first unnamed parameter should stay as |Ireland, with other parameters being used to obtain the map data (name, corner coordinates, etc.) that should be set in {{Location map Ireland}}".

{{Location map Ireland}} uses a different map - Ireland location map.svg - not the one you're trying to use.

SVG versions of maps on Bulgaria[edit]

Article(s)

Request
I would like to know if SVG versions of the above maps could be drawn, using the recommended colours in here and layers (for later manipulation). My goal is twofold: to have SVG maps that can be easily translated into Spanish for the Spanish Wikipedia and having the basis to create SVG versions of other maps that seem to share the same base map such as these: BG1257-77.jpg, Bulg & neighb. XIV A.png, Bulgaria under Bizantine rule.png, Bulgaria under Boril.png, Bulgaria under Kaloyan pl.png, Bulgaria-1371.jpg, Bulgaria-Ivan Asen 2.png, Bulgaria-Theodore Svetoslav.png. Campaigns of Ivan Assen II.png, Culture of the Second Bulgarian Empire.png, Culture of the First Bulgarian Empire.png, First Bulgarian Empire (976-1018).png, Second Bulgarian Empire (1185-1196).png, Second Bulgarian Empire (1241-1256).png, Second Bulgarian Empire after 1371.png.

@Rowanwindwhistler: Before I do any more I want you to look at this overall draft to check that this is the largest overall area that we need?
All maps are different and the three you provided needs a rotation to fit my draft but that is the most correct we have.
So tell me if that overall area is the biggest we need, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:20, 20 August 2015 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en:. I would recommend making it a bit larger to include the Greek peninsula. Though I think most of the maps could use that base, there one or two in the list I intend to turn into SVG (Bulgaria-Ivan Asen 2.png, First Bulgarian Empire (976-1018).png for instance) that would require a bit more territory in the South. Thank you.--Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 05:59, 21 August 2015 (UTC)
@Rowanwindwhistler: Is this fine? It's always much easier to remove then to add further on for the different maps, feedback thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:20, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en:. Then, if possible, please add the territory up to Dniester river. While rechecking the maps I realized some of them (these: 1, [1] at least) extend quite to the North of the peninsula. If it is better to have one base map for all of them, it would be nice to extend this second version North till the Dniester to be able to use it for these ones too. Sorry I did not notice last time. Thank you.--Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 04:56, 24 August 2015 (UTC)

Hi, sorry for intervening a bit late but just two comments. First, it seems that the resolution of the coastline data of the proposed map is very low and thus the quality of the coast is bad. Just look at the Thasos Island. It is represented as part of the main land and the Nestos river is on top of it. Second, I would recommend to cut the map on the south around the 38.5 N as the Peloponnese was never part of the Bulgarian state and no need to present it. This will allow to focus better on the subject and reduce the map size. If you do not have the means I can help if you wish to produce a map with better resolution. --Ikonact (talk) 14:22, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for informing me about the resolution. I will make a new one with higher resolution so please check here for that. I have no knowledge of that area like that so I need help. This is a problem that comes from taking a part of a map that shows a much larger area so I usally redraw them as I will with this. If you both agree on the cut I will also do that, I have no knowledge, again. My idea is that this is a base map and then we can reduce/zoom in when it's possible depending on the map. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:33, 27 August 2015 (UTC)

@Rowanwindwhistler:@Ikonact: Now I want BOTH of you to look at this base draft and tell me if the overall area is right and if the level of details is good. I haven't added more than coastline just so I don't do a lot of work for nothing, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:08, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en:, personally, I think the previous one was much better. If the map does not include the Southern part of Greece, some maps will not be able to use this base map, as I mentioned earlier. Thank you.--Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 19:53, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en:@Rowanwindwhistler:: The resolution is OK. If you think that including the Southern part of Greece is important, I do not oppose. Thank you --Ikonact (talk) 08:43, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
