United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland uses 'Short scale' for billions, etc, NOT 'Both scales'[edit]

Article(s)
Long and short scales
Request
In the above map, the UK (United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) is shown in purple (meaning 'Both scales'), whereas it should be red (meaning 'Short scale'), the same color as the neighbouring Republic of Ireland, and as the USA. This was requested last October at Talk:Long and short scales#The map is inconsistent with the article, for the UK, and has since been supported by 3 other editors (including me), giving more detailed justifications. Nobody has disagreed. In case the above gets archived, the same text can be found in the most recent related diff here.-- Tlhslobus (talk) 03:42, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
Note: The map also appears to be wrong for Brazil, which is short scale according to the text of the article, but is coloured bluish red (short scale with milliard) instead of red (short scale) despite the text indicating that Brazillions say trilhao where other Portuguese speakers say mil milhões or milhar de milhões. A Brazilian has pointed out this apparent error at Talk:Long_and_short_scales#Map_is_wrong_about_Brazil (relevant diff is here).Tlhslobus (talk) 04:08, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

 Done FYI, PNG files such as this can be edited with software such as MS Paint (that's what I used) with the colour dropper and floodfill option. This file should be recreated as an SVG to avoid pixelation and those annoying lines that connect islands up. But that's another task. I'm a little busy myself to do that, but you could keep this topic up and request that too. Jolly O Janner 04:38, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Sorry, but seemingly nothing has changed, Jolly Janner. The UK and Brazil are seemingly still the same wrong colours. So the change is seemingly not yet "done". Are you perhaps saying that I should change the colours myself using something like MS Paint? I could perhaps try, but it may not work with my out-of-date operating system, and then I don't know how to safely upload the amended file to Wikipedia, especially as this map seems to be used elsewhere, judging by its seemingly Spanish file name.

Thanks, Jolly Janner. You've been absolutely wonderful. I'll now create a new request to have it converted to an SVG, per your recommendation. Judging from what you say, this might mean it could then no longer be edited with the likes of MS_Paint, but if so, I'm assuming this is outweighed by the benefits. If on reflection you decide this is incorrect, can you please let me know. Thanks again and regards. Tlhslobus (talk) 08:52, 17 January 2016 (UTC)

Image's request under progression Request taken by Mliu92 (talk) 17:00, 23 February 2016 (UTC).

@Tlhslobus: Here is an SVG version. The SVG file can be edited using a text editor to add, subtract, or move countries between the various categories using the two-letter country code, formatted as lowercase with a preceding dot (i.e., Mexico would be ".mx" without the quotation marks) in the CSS sheets at the start of the file. I took the country list directly from the Long and short scales article, so there are a few differences versus the current PNG:
  • Greenland and Antarctica are not listed in the article, hence I left them grey     .
  • Brazil, Brunei, and Myanmar appear to use a variant of "billion" and not "milliard" so I colored those the lighter red      instead of the darker red     .
Let me know what you think. Cheers, Mliu92 (talk) 17:00, 23 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, Mliu92, great work. But one minor problem and one query. All your changes seem fine except Antarctica, which the continents section of the article describes as using both scales, so it was correctly shown in purple, so could you please restore that. (I had a go at restoring it myself, but my antiquated computer seemingly insists on converting svg to png when downloading). Once you have restored it I'll use your map in the article, and I'll also describe your remaining changes in Talk just in case anyone wants to undo some of them and can find reliable sources (or perhaps other similar good reasons) to justify doing so. I'm not sure whether I should also copy to Talk your advice on how to change the map (I fear, perhaps unnecessarily, that making such changes too easy might facilitate vandals or POV warriors) - any thoughts on that?. Tlhslobus (talk) 08:48, 25 February 2016 (UTC)
I notice that all the Arabic countries are described as short scale but using 'milyar' for billion (10^9), and should thus probably be darker red instead of lighter red as currently shown. So if you would like to make that change please do, tho if it's too much hassle please leave it, and I can then think about whether I want to bother submitting another request. Tlhslobus (talk) 10:20, 25 February 2016 (UTC)
@Tlhslobus: I've updated the file with the purple color for Antarctica. This was pretty simple to fix. When the browser was downloading the file as a PNG, were you saving the rendered version? The SVG can be downloaded by going to the file at Commons and then clicking on the "Original File" link.
Regarding your concern for potential vandalism, I admit I hadn't thought of that possibility. Editing the SVG would require some basic working knowledge of XML, although I tried to lay it out as simply as possible. When you open the SVG you will find these lines towards the top of the file (according to my text editor, they start at line # 145):

You would move the country code from one category to another in order to change the color. It is not difficult but it is also not obvious and I would postulate that fixing vandalism would be fairly simple (you can always revert changes to earlier versions of graphics).
Also note the Arabic-speaking countries (Algeria = .dz; Bahrain = .bh; etc.) are already listed as "short scale + milliard" countries (the darker red, which is hex color #DC143C     ). I'm happy to iterate versions here if more changes are needed.
Cheers, Mliu92 (talk) 15:49, 25 February 2016 (UTC)
Thanks, Mliu92, I think everything is fine now. In any case I think I can now make any additional changes myself (or at least if any are needed I intend to try to do them myself first). I'll also link to the diff of this conversation on the article's Talk page, mentioning that it says what changes were made and how to change the file (but adding that it took me quite some time to find instructions on how to upload the amended version, which should reduce any vandalism risk). Sorry for not noticing that you had already updated the Arab countries (presumably because you forgot to list them among the changes you made). Anyway thanks again for everything.

Request
Elk Township is accidentally left transparent in all maps of this collection, except of course for its own. Could you make it white like all the other townships? I tried to do it by editing the SVG in Notepad, merely copy/pasting the hexadecimal color from another township, but I made a mistake and don't know what I did wrongly. Nyttend (talk) 14:56, 13 February 2016 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

 Done. Rather oddly, I noticed the author had kept non-visible layers in the file which contained raster maps. I have absolutely no idea why these were there, but noticed that after removing them the file size went down to 79KB (a 98% reduction!). I've uploaded it over File:Vinton County Ohio incorporated and unincorporated areas.svg as an example. I'm not sure whether to go ahead and do it to all of them. It may be worth asking the original author what they are doing in the file. Jolly O Janner 08:40, 14 February 2016 (UTC)

Thanks! I had previously asked the uploader, who responded Elk Township doesn't have a colour (it is transparent) because when I was drawing the map I seem to have failed to turn it white. It doesn't matter enough to have to change the whole lot, though. Since I found the situation confusing, I disagreed with "doesn't matter enough", obviously. Final request, Jolly Janner: would you mind editing File:Vinton County Ohio incorporated and unincorporated areas Elk Township highlighted.svg to get rid of the raster layer there? I didn't request it earlier because I thought it was merely a mistake with the coloring; if you could reduce its file size significantly, that would be helpful.

Commons counties maps have odd county borders[edit]

I forked c:File:Democratic Party presidential primaries results by county, 2016.svg and c:File:Republican Party presidential primaries results by county, 2016.svg from c:File:USA Counties.svg. However, it looks like that map's borders are mixed into all sorts of objects, which is making editing the files very difficult. Try to open either in Inkscape and you will see how difficult it is to select a county.

I tried the ungroup function in Inkscape but no matter what I've tried, it's causing more problems.

Thanks @Ikonact!. It is definitely a good start! If you don't mind, I have some suggested changes, most of which are based on a new source that I think looks really good. See slide 5 in this presentation. I think making it more of a schematic map would be best:
  • Slightly elongate the map so that it is wider (similar to the new source)
  • Remove the downtown couplet and make into a single line (similar to the new source).
  • Change the station names to their shorthand that is used in the new source.
  • Make sure all of the station names are at 45 degree angles with the light rail line.
  • Remove the Gilbert Road Extension stations and the 50th St/Washington station for now (we can add them when they open in a few years).
  • Make the line a little thicker, and add a black border on the gold light rail line (similar to the new source).
  • Add a north arrow.

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.

(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)

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)

Request
Okay, there are a few things about this map of the World in 1959 that need correcting:

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

Request
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)

I only have little pockets of time to work on requests, so I can't dedicate a lot of time to one image.

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)

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)

Two Belgian history related maps[edit]

Article(s)
Eupen-Malmedy
Sillon industriel and Wallonia
Request
I've got two requests for maps relating to the History of Belgium. I'd be very grateful indeed if anyone could help me with it!
  1. I've made some big additions to the article for Eupen-Malmedy and was wondering if it might be possible to get a map to go with it. Ideally the map would show the territory of Eupen-Malmedy within a map of Belgium. The current map (here) is needlessly elaborate and the best alternative barely shows the territory at all because of its different focus.
  1. The second map is, essentially, just a cleaner version of this CIA map showing the Sillon industriel. It's the blue basins which are important here and the rest of the map is just a distraction which also prevents its use on articles about Belgium before the 1960s when national industry looked very different to how it did in 1968 when the map was produced.

How to add a scale to a map?[edit]

How to add a scale to this map? When I google for this subject, I only get tutorials for Qis programs. Please, don't add the scale yourself. I would like to do it myself. What I need is a good tutorial or some good explanation how to do it properly. Wereldburger758 (talk) 18:26, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
Here is a generalization that might be good to do some day. Modify Location map + to draw a straight line from one lat/long to the previous one. This would allow anyone to put a scale anywhere on a location map with label= giving its length. It would also allow other lines that might be useful sometimes. This is not a request, just a suggestion. Benjamin Trovato (talk) 19:16, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
@Benjamin Trovato: AFAIK most location maps are unprojected (and have post-processing distortion applied to boot), so that wouldn't really be appropriate. It would be nice to see them have lat/long lines added, though. Joe Roe (talk) 21:46, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
@Wereldburger758: Without original georeferenced files or at least some information on the projection used it's not possible to add an accurate scale bar. The best you could to is to approximate from a known distance, like the width of the Mallorca. However, one wouldn't usually use a scale bar on a medium/small scale map like this. Without getting too technical, the process of transforming the spherical earth into a flat image introduces distortions that mean the scale couldn't possibly be accurate for every distance on the map. The normal way to convey scale on a map like this is to add lines of latitude and longitude, a numerical scale factor (e.g. 1:1,000,000), or simply rely on the fact that it depicts a familiar landform. Since the former two options again aren't possible without knowing more about how the map was produced, I'd just assume that most people have a rough idea how big Spain is. Joe Roe (talk) 21:44, 19 September 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your answers. Wereldburger758 (talk) 12:39, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
I disagree with some aspects of Joe Roe's answer. With a map showing a small part of the earth's surface, such as the one in question, the projection doesn't really matter, the same scale will be reasonably accurate for all parts of it (unless it has had its aspect ratio changed, which I do not believe is the case here). And if you are working out what the scale should be, it's best to measure as long a distance as you reasonably can, say from the Strait of Gibraltar to Arcachon Bay in this case, rather than picking a relatively small feature such as Mallorca. Maproom (talk) 18:47, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
I'd call the entirety of the Iberian peninsula a rather large part of the earth's surface myself, but I guess that's a judgement call. My main concern was that it might well be in a geographic CRS. Joe Roe (talk) 19:03, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
But I doubt it's large enough that, using any reasonable projection, the scale would vary by more than 10% over the region covered (I do not consider Mercator's, or Gall's, reasonable). What's a CRS? Maproom (talk) 21:13, 20 September 2016 (UTC)
Sorry, CRS = coordinate reference system, geographic CRS = an "unprojected" system like plate carrée. Joe Roe (talk) 21:25, 20 September 2016 (UTC)

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.

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)

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)

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.

7) Installation of the borders between East and West Germany, North and South Yemen, and North and South Vietnam.

Okay, this is a similar map to the one above, but from 1938. And there are a few changes that need to be made to reflect the situation at the time:

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

In 1938 Algeria was not part of French West Africa, it was ruled as a department of France.

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)

Okay, a few things a about these maps could do with correcting. Firstly, British Honduras (modern Belize) and British Cameroons (now part of Cameroon) should both be shaded red, as they were both part of the British Empire at the time. Plus, given that Egypt officially gained independence in 1922, it should probably be changed to grey (and perhaps light red on the second map, to show its status as militarily occupied?).

Hello, The map intends to show the extent of the land surface of the empire regardless of the exact political relationship of each component entity. Egypt gained "independence" but for all intents and purposes was a protectorate, and at the very least a thoroughly military occupied entity with no control over its foreign affairs.

All Ukrainian settlements, e.g. Sviatoshyn, Ozeryshche (Ukraine), Chernihiv

I've noticed that since the 15th of October 2016 the variable:

pushpin_map = Ukraine

stopped working in Template:Infobox settlement. In fact the map of Ukraine is not shown in the infobox. It have affected all Ukrainian settlements where that infobox is used.

Any ideas? -- TimeWaitsForNobody (talk) 01:45, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

Template:Location map Ukraine Kiev Oblast[edit]

Resolved: Offnfopt(talk) 14:08, 7 November 2016 (UTC)
Request
The map on Template:Location map Ukraine Kiev Oblast is coordinated incorrectly. As а reference point can be Kotsiubynske. It's a small spot inside the Kiev city area. But in fact on this map, it's moved towards the top-right side.

I tried to correct it myself but I have no experience in such a job. I cannot even find Module:Location map/data/Ukraine Kiev Oblast Could you please help me? -- TimeWaitsForNobody (talk) 09:59, 16 October 2016 (UTC)

Out of scope request, discussion on the issue can be found @ Module_talk:Location_map#Location_map_Ukraine_Kiev_Oblast and the issue has since been resolved, closing request. Best place to ask for help on issues with templates/modules is on the talk page for the template/module, the ones watching those pages are more familiar with the inner workings of the modules/templates and will be able to better help with issues specific to those templates. If a image file in the File: namespace needs editing/updating this is the place for that. Offnfopt(talk) 14:08, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Please create a map showing the maritime boundaries of Belize. The map should be based on data from http://www.marineregions.org/gazetteer.php?p=details&id=8457 or a similar source.

@Houdinipeter: There's a bit of weirdness with the country land border around Belize. It's thinner than the other country borders on the same map except along the Cayo District border. Compare [7] and [8]. Kaldari (talk) 05:54, 28 November 2016 (UTC)

Inset is hard to use[edit]

Article(s)
Rogue River (Michigan)
Request
When you're viewing this file at significantly less than full size (for example, in the article where it currently appears), the inset is small enough that you can't easily see where in Michigan the river is; I saw the tiny line but initially thought it was a speck of dust on my screen. Would you please put a box around the blue area on the inset, so it stands out a little better? No need to make it conform precisely to the area of the bigger map; approximate equivalence will be fine. Bonus points if you can make the inset larger, whether by extending it up and right or by extending it down and left, or both. Nyttend (talk) 01:44, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

  • @Nyttend:  Done. Hopefully a little clearer now? Joe Roe (talk) 12:31, 5 December 2016 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s)

 Done @EdwardUK: I have added a map at the Bishopthorpe Palace article, using {{OSM Location map}} rather than create a new map template. It should be possible for you to copy and adapt it for the other ones, customising for their dot locations and content. RobinLeicester (talk) 00:50, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Thanks, I didn't know there was a map template for doing this - it will be very helpful for showing locations within a city when the other maps don't show enough detail. EdwardUK (talk) 05:29, 14 December 2016 (UTC)
@EdwardUK:, It's great to see you finding good uses and possibilities for it in the York area. I am hoping other place based articles will start to discover it. RobinLeicester (talk) 23:51, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

I have doubled the height and width of the SVG so it is easier to see the details/text of the map when you click to view the original file. If you want to see the details of the map click "Original file". Offnfopt(talk) 02:37, 15 November 2016 (UTC)
