Treaty of Nöteborg 1323[edit]

Hi, the Treaty of Nöteborg is the first known border between Finland, Sweden and Novgorod and thus quite important. The prevailing view in research is that the border had two lines and the area between belonged jointly to West-Finnish/Swedish and Russo-Karelian cultures respectively. This view is supported by Iron Age material discoveries. I made a map to Finnish wikipedia according to historians Jarl Gallén and Johan Lind (1991) but I am not happy to the quality of the map. Template doesn`t have too many pixels and the graphics need to be better etc. Also description box would be grate to add already to the map. I can fill it with information if needed.

Finnish wikipedia link: https://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/P%C3%A4hkin%C3%A4saaren_rauha Link to the map by me: https://fi.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiedosto:P%C3%A4hkin%C3%A4saaren_rauhan_raja_1323_5.jpg

Request
Totally new map of the border or good quality template and some help.

@Scope creep: I can't find or read the names of two cities and then there is a dot I can't see any name for. It's encircled on this image. Also I have very hard to read the different dates, what is at the base of arrows, which numbers or letters. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:41, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

Left is La Feuillée, the mid dot, is a dot, above it is Stenay. The one of the right is Dudenhofen. scope_creep (talk) 20:50, 4 September 2017 (UTC)

@Scope creep: I can find several La Feuillée but to me none of them are right. If you can get me a link on a map it would be great.
Are you sure it's Dudenhofen, to me and his map that is on the wrong side of the border, should it not be in France? --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:21, 5 September 2017 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: It looks like your right. I reads like Dudenhofen, but it is definitely not that. Too far out to the right, but a long way. I created some intersecting grid lines on google earth, and created a triangle where it should have been in, but couldn't locate it. So I guess miss it out for the moment. I saw this map: [2] (map 4 on bottom left) which was the unit operations for the invasion, and its got a bunch of places all over, lots in common with this map, but Dudenhofen is not it. I have added the La Feuillie as well for correct location.

I've made a list of the names of cities, on the map, ones in doubt, which may help.

Hope that helps. scope_creep (talk) 23:42, 5 September 2017 (UTC)

@Scope creep: Draft for #2. I have guessed some of the texts so check them specially. Give me feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:52, 6 September 2017 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: There is a mistake in the box. It looks decent overall, I'll check it tomorrow. scope_creep (talk) 00:18, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
  • Name:Chart 4 radio intelligence operation findings during French Campaign
  • Description:Intercept units findings during Signal intelligence operations by Germany against France
  • Category:Germany in World War II

There is a coupe of things wrong with it.

  1. In the legend box, then French name is not complete.
  2. The bit round Grandpre, doesn't show the three 'xxx' on top of the box. Seems a bit crowded.
  3. The mulhouse box at the bottom right, doesn't have the 'eighth' within it.
  4. Below wissenbourg, you have a box representing an army. It has 'Second' in it, when it should be 'fifth'
  5. There is dates missing next to Troyes.
  6. Can you move the date to the left of Geradmer, closer to the town. Or below. I see it is miles away on the original map.
@Scope creep: New draft, is really the letters/numbers for the German armies correct, I guess for several.
  1. Fixed
  2. Made the 'xxx' more visible. There is a lot of information just there, moved some around.
  3. Fixed
  4. Fixed
  5. Moved it. I thought the date was for both of the armies. What do you mean by "I see it is miles away on the original map."?
Feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:32, 7 September 2017 (UTC)
That is pretty decent. It was pretty decent before, better now. Maybe worth firing in an English Channel label in the channel. Good work. scope_creep (talk) 19:45, 7 September 2017 (UTC)

@Scope creep: Draft of map 3. The legend is not finished, tell me what you want in it and the texts for it. Feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:14, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

Will do.scope_creep (talk) 22:20, 13 September 2017 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: All in excellent. Although the legend box, im not sure how to fill it in. There is no mile indicator, which would be handy. I don't what the circles mean on top of the box. The dashes are a NATO standard. The circles mean Direction finding (D/F) units, the others which are Intcp intercept companies. OB West, 5th Panzer Army, Blue line is a front. Red lines are D/F and intercept bearings. scope_creep (talk) 13:58, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

  1. Add a mile indicator

Legend Box:

  1. Single dash - intcp company
  2. Three dashes - command intcp company.
  3. Square box with circle - D/F unit (I'll add an extensive caption and include direction finding)
  4. OB West - Army Command
  5. Fifth Panzer - 5th Panzer Army
  6. Blue line - British Front
  7. Red line - D/F and Intcp direction
  8. Ariel - Intercept station

Thanks. scope_creep (talk) 14:07, 14 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi Goran tek-en, excellent work as usual. More detail than in the original.

The rest I'll do tomorrow. I need to read the doc. One part is microwave links. scope_creep (talk) 18:43, 21 September 2017 (UTC)

4.1[edit]

Hi @Goran tek-en: Can you change the following:

On the diagram.

  1. No distance marker.
  2. Between Rome and Sicily, please next to line: radio teletype circuit. By that point in the war, mid 43, Germany was starting to distrust Enigma cipher machine, and was using fixed communication lines.
  3. Between Sicily and Tunis it is a Decimeter Microwave
  4. Between Rome to Tunis = 70 Watt SW Comm circuit.
  5. The dashes between fifth panzer and africa korps = Comm circuit
  6. Between Sicily and Gabes = 70 Watt SW Comm circuit.

In the legend box:

  1. 5th Panzer, is the 5th Panzer Army
  2. OB Southwest is OB Southwest. We don't have a page for it yet.
  3. Single dash - intcp company
  4. Three dashes - command intcp company
  5. Take out that first dashes at the bottom. The first of three.
  6. dashed, dashed, dashed - Comm Circuit.

The diagram may be need to bigger. I don't how it would work. It seems to be a bundle, even a whole bundle, or even a whole lot. I'll see how it looks, it could overwhelm it, symbols all over the shop, like Google Earth gets sometimes. Ive added this for later. Hope that helps.

Update. Hi @Goran tek-en:, I've put in an update between Rome and Sicily. It is now radio teletype circuit. Might be too late. scope_creep (talk) 18:17, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

@Scope creep: New draft, feedback, thanks. I don't understand what you wrote above "The diagram may be need to ....". --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:31, 24 September 2017 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en:, Yip. I think thats all right. It is one interpretation of what the doc says. I don't know if it is the right one, but it will do. For such a simple diagram. I thought it would be less complex. Good work. Its good. scope_creep (talk) 18:53, 24 September 2017 (UTC)

5[edit]

@Scope creep: I need your help now. I have tried to find the names of the cities but I'm very unsure for many of them. There is also the spelling of them, should it be English, German, maybe they have changed over time or there own names. I need you to write a list with the name I put in the map and then the one you want, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 17:43, 27 September 2017 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: No worries. Scope creep (talk) 22:44, 27 September 2017 (UTC) @Goran tek-en: About half done. Scope creep (talk) 01:04, 29 September 2017 (UTC) @Goran tek-en: These are about 10 odd that don't have articles. Soon. Scope creep (talk) 20:49, 29 September 2017 (UTC)

Hi @Goran tek-en:, Finally got the list finished, apart from a couple, which I can identify, or don't have WP page. There is several which has slightly different names, like Stalingrad now being Volgograd. I think half a dozen like that. There is a couple I think which are completely different.

Scope creep (talk) 21:14, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

@Scope creep: For me you don't need to link to an article, thanks for the names.
  • I need to know if the Hungarian and Romanian armies were on the German side as the Italian were (at first)?
  • There is so much information in this map and trying to make all of it visible makes the map cluttered or messy. I will add everything and then you can tell me if we should change anything. But could this not be made in to two maps, to me it mixes armies and intelligence, but maybe that wont work for you. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:17, 5 October 2017 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en:, they were both German allies at the time. If the map is crowded, can you not make the map bigger. It can be A2, or more accurately A3 in landscape, in size, and put on the article, with the thumb attribute on, when it is placed on the page, and expanded accordingly. There is no reason why it needs to be a tiny map. I would rather have a large map which could scrolled by hand, say on an ipad or by scrollbars on a windows desktop. scope_creep (talk) 21:09, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
And make subsequent icons, intercept stations, flows etc smaller. scope_creep (talk) 21:13, 6 October 2017 (UTC)
@Scope creep: Draft to check. As this is a svg it can be enlarged when viewed without any quality lost, feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:42, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
Your right, massive amount of details. scope_creep (talk) 16:46, 7 October 2017 (UTC)
I seems to be pretty decent. There is a couple of wee bits. In the bottom right legend box, can you change:
  1. Change Army group South to Army Group South. It is a names, as in a document, so it is upper case.
  2. Same for Army Group Center, make it Army Group Centre (European spelling)
  3. Change Hungarian 2 Army to Hungarian Second Army (if you can), which is offician name.
  4. Change German 2 Army to German 2nd Army
  5. Change 1th Panzer Army into 1st Panzer Army
  6. Change Italian 8 Army to Italian 8th Army
  7. Change Army group A to Army Group A
  8. Change Romanian 3 army to Romanian 3rd Army
  9. Change all the army from lowercare to uppercase in lower legend box.
  10. Add a distance measure.

scope_creep (talk) 15:43, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

  1. At the top right, split the Sovietunion, and into Soviet Union

scope_creep (talk) 15:52, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: Had a look at it, seems ok. Good work. A lot of details, information dense. scope_creep (talk) 22:12, 8 October 2017 (UTC) @Goran tek-en:, I think this map is a good as any i've seen on Wikipedia. Excellent work. scope_creep (talk) 12:12, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

@Scope creep: I have been and still are sick so it will take a while before I continue, I will ping you. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:10, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en:, Sorry to hear that. Take care of your self. Stay warm, drink plenty of fluids. Hope its not serious. scope_creep (talk) 18:08, 11 October 2017 (UTC)

@Scope creep: New draft to check. --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:53, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
One but 1. Change 1th Panzer Army at no. 8 in the legend box to 1st Panzer Army. I have went through it section by section. It is decent. Publish after that. scope_creep (talk) 19:02, 14 October 2017 (UTC)
@Scope creep: Will fix that and also add the distance measure bar. I will need the following;
  • Name of the file:Chart 9 German Radio Intelligence Operations in Southern Russia 1941-42
  • Description:Armies, Direction finding and Intercept units movements during Signal intelligence operations by Germany in Southern Russian 1941-1942

Editing World Map with Individual US States[edit]

I was looking for a world map that also featured individual US states that I could edit. I came across this one [3]. However, while it's easy to edit and change the colors of countries, I can't figure out how to do it for individual states (if it's even possible). Does anyone know how to edit individual states on that map? Or can someone suggest a better alternative map? -AnonWikiEditor (talk) 19:59, 23 September 2017 (UTC)

@AnonWikiEditor: We might be able to give more specific help if you told us what software you were using to edit the file, but in any graphical vector editor (e.g. Inkscape, Adobe Illustrator), it should be a simple case of selecting the US, ungrouping the states, then selecting an individual state and changing the fill. – Joe (talk) 14:12, 19 November 2017 (UTC)

Abortion law[edit]

Resolved: – Joe (talk) 14:18, 19 November 2017 (UTC)

Abortion in Chile is only legal for risk to maternal life, rape, fetal defects.[4]. So a new color for this situation is needed. See the discussion here: Talk:Abortion_law#Chile_on_the_map.

It's correct but amateurish; would someone be able to Wikify it for me please? (I'm not worried about the OpenStreetMap labels shown on the map, except the street names and the name of the square). Thanks very much. SchroCat (talk) 10:51, 5 December 2017 (UTC)

 Done. See the third image above. I worked from the Russian version.
The Spanish version contains the country names as text, but that text is not rendered in the image. The Spanish text you see in the image is rendered from SVG paths. I don't understand why people create images like that. It's an abuse of the SVG format. It makes the image larger (though only about 50% in this case), slower to render, and much more difficult to edit. I wish they wouldn't do it. Maproom (talk) 13:03, 18 December 2017 (UTC)

The code for both of those are valid according to w3c. Hopefully that will make them work. I actually think that the large size could be a problem at some thumb sizes. This is not something I can prove it's just my experience and understanding.
Here I will tell you wath I have done. I work on Ubuntu 16.04 and used Inkscape 0.91. How Inkscape work on other OS and versions is nothing I can say.

  • Open file in Inkscape
  • Open XML editor, shift+ctrl+x (Edit/XML editor)
  • In text on left side, find <svg:clipPath id=".....">
  • Click to mark it, then find the symbol for Delete node above, has a red/white X in it, click that to remove the node. This removes the thicker outline.
  • Select all ctrl+a and make a group ctrl+g of it.
  • Select all ctrl+a, click on the padlock symbol (to locked) at the top to make changes same prorpotion W and H.
  • Click to mark all four of the symbols to the right of W and H at the top, they should all four have a line around them.
  • To the left of the four symbols choose px in the list.
  • In the W value box change the value to something under 1000 px, I choose 748, and you can probably kepp the same number for all of the files.
  • Hit Enter to execute and the drawing should be like 1/10 of before.
  • Shift+ctrl+d (File/Document properties). In the middle you will find Custom size, choose px in the Units list.
  • Under that click on Resize page to content...
  • In the four fields type 2 in each and then click on button Resize page to drawing or selection. Close the window and the page is now the right size for the drawing.
  • Now go to Save as or Save a copy, which you prefer.
  • Down in the right hand corner pick Optimized SVG (*.svg) from the list, change the name if you want.
  • In the window for Optimized... unceck everything in the Options tabe. The two at the bottom was 5 and Space for me.
  • In tab Ids check Remove unused ID names for elements and Shorten IDs, nothing else.
  • Click on OK to execute.
  • This should give you the same as this file: optimized and 748px wide
  •  Done I can't say this really really has fixed the problem but I hope so test if you can before you do all of them. If you are happy with this please put the code {{resolved|1=~~~~}} on this request so it can be archived, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 13:48, 30 December 2017 (UTC)
  • Goran tek-en, thank you, but I'm somewhat confused with editing the 748px file. How do I adjust which entity is colored? When I move the code <use style="fill:#ff0000" xlink:href="#a" height="100%" width="100%" y="0" x="0"/> from place to place (always putting it at the end of a <path d=> </> string), Bath County remains highlighted, even though this is the only reference to FF0000. I don't understand what the <g></g> tags do; do I have to put it in the right place in relation to them? I encounter the same problem with the larger file; <use xlink:href="#a" fill="red"/> is the only reference to "red", but moving it from place to place still leaves Bath County highlighted. Nyttend (talk) 14:07, 30 December 2017 (UTC)
@Nyttend: I didn't think of that you would edit only this fill in a text editor and make all the different versions from it, then you don't need my explanation.
Download this file and try your way again, let me now how it goes, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:33, 30 December 2017 (UTC)
@Nyttend: I just found out that all the parts have no white background, I have to fix that. You can test the file above but I will send you a new one within an hour, roughly. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:41, 30 December 2017 (UTC)
Just back from snow shovelling, or I would have responded sooner. Yes, I have nothing more sophisticated than Windows Paint, so Notepad is the only way that I cna edit an SVG. Unfortunately, I get a 404 error when I click "Download this file". I'm about to be gone again and won't be back until almost midnight UTC (if not later), so I won't respond to anything until then. Thanks! Nyttend (talk) 15:33, 30 December 2017 (UTC)
@Nyttend: The error is because I removed that file. You can always install Inkscape it's open source.
Download this file, it has white in all the different parts. Search for <path style="stroke-linejoin:round;stroke:#000000;stroke-width:11.89;fill:#ff0000" and change the fill:# value as you need.
There are also 8 groups which the g stands for <g style="stroke-linejoin:round;stroke:#000000;stroke-width:119;fill:#ffffff" transform="matrix(.099917 0 0 .099917 -40182 -19321)">
<path style="fill:#ffffff". I didn't break up them as I don't know if they are supposed to be in a group or not. But you can change in the same way, the whole group is the first fill and each path fill is the second fill. Hope this helps. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:47, 30 December 2017 (UTC)
Thank you; this is exactly what I was seeking. I'll let you know if I need any help, but I think I'll try from here on finishing all the different versions. Nyttend (talk) 03:25, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

Because I know almost nothing about SVGs; what I wrote at the start is the best description I had (and the best description I still have) of what I wanted. Had you been making the request, what would you have said? Nyttend (talk) 13:59, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
@Nyttend: Often you can go different paths to reach the same goal, same here. I work much with Inkscape and as it's open source I assumed that you would use that to edit the files. To my understanding now, you knew/believed that you wanted to edit the files in a text editor. If I had had that information from the beginning I would have worked differently with this, the whole part with editing in Inkscape is useless. It would have been great if you started with to say that you know almost nothing about SVGs but you wished to do the editing in a text editor. Then we could have discussed how to approach this. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:26, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
That's why I said "human-editable"; I partly remembered {{NoInkscape}} and figured that "human-editable" meant that it could be modified in a text editor without much difficulty. Nyttend (talk) 15:31, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
To me "human-editable" means that you do it by "manually" (even in Inkscape) and not by a script, code or programming. -- Goran tek-en (talk) 18:01, 31 December 2017 (UTC)

British Isles climate map[edit]

Request
There are little dotted lines in four random places: off Sussex in the English Channel, off Northumbria (midway between 8 and 9) in the North Sea, off Munster (and going past the Isles of Scilly) in the Atlantic, and on the western fringe of Ireland in the Atlantic, headed northwest toward Iceland. These aren't explained, and given the position of the last one, I doubt that they're shipping lanes. Unless you can divine their purpose, could you remove them? -- Nyttend (talk) 04:14, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
The dotted lines are the continuation into the sea of the borders between the climatic zones. Maproom (talk) 09:34, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
I noticed that they continue the borders, but are seaweeds or sea waters addressed for climate hardiness? If not, what's the point, since nothing grows or can grow in the open sea? That's what I meant by "unexplained": the point of displaying them (i.e. how they contribute to the meaning given by the map), not the graphical reason for their appearance in the first place. Nyttend (talk) 12:44, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
IMO the dotted line between 9 and 10 is useful. While it may not have a direct meaning to the marine areas it crosses, the context makes it clear the ratings only apply to land areas, and the addition of the line makes it easier to determine which of the coastal sections are 10. I cannot see a tangible benefit to the 8/9 line. A bigger concern for me is the source - what data does this represent?--Nilfanion (talk) 16:06, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
This map represents the UK in terms of USDA hardiness zones for growing plants, based on winter temperatures. It is not a climate map, though it seems - mistakenly - to be being used for that purpose (see its use in Pennines and Geography of England for example). PaleCloudedWhite (talk) 16:51, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
My question is what is the source for the boundaries shown? This map has no indication where that data came from, and without knowing that cannot gauge its accuracy. Compare to these two maps, produced by two different British nurseries, which also purport to show USDA hardiness zones ([8][9]).--Nilfanion (talk) 17:23, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
The zones are divided according to specified ranges of average annual minimum winter temperature [10] - so maybe people make their own maps? Perhaps we should ask the uploader, MPF, who is still active on Commons. PaleCloudedWhite (talk) 17:42, 10 December 2017 (UTC)
Below is a reply from MPF, copied from my Commons user talkpage. PaleCloudedWhite (talk) 14:22, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
Hi PaleCloudedWhite - thanks for the tag about File:UK zonemap.png. You're right in your analysis, and right that it shouldn't really be on the Pennines or the Geography of England pages; do please remove it from those. Yes, I made this myself (original research is permitted on Commons!), but it is as you say, from average annual minimum winter temperatures. I like to think that my map is more accurate than the other two that @Nilfanion: mentioned - the first is wildly out in giving a large part of central Scotland as zone 6 (would only apply to the high tops of the Cairngorms) and too much of England as zone 7, while the second is rather haphazard (badly drawn) in its zone boundaries, not matching landforms too well. There may be errors in mine too; anyone with access to better detail is welcome to upload a new version. The dotted lines out to sea are for convenience only to highlight the narrow warmer coastal districts; while the 8/9 boundary is less tricky to see than the 9/10 boundary, removing one but leaving the other would make the map look very odd. I also made (and still have) a similar map for Europe, but never got round to uploading it here. Hope this helps! - MPF (talk) 01:12, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
While OR is permitted on Commons, we should be careful about how we present it on Wikipedia. The data (ie the annual average minimum temps) underlying the map must have come from somewhere, hopefully a reliable source for such information. My concern is I can't see where to even begin to attempt a verification of the data, not the conversion of that data to a graphic (acceptable OR!). For instance, is the representation of the Pennines more accurate than the other two? I don't know. On the plus side, the Met Office has released a ton of climatological data (to 5km precision) under the OGL. Extracting annual average minimums from that is just number crunching.--Nilfanion (talk) 15:19, 11 December 2017 (UTC)

If not I'm sure there are people here who would happy to help you make them. I think the reason that you have not had any responses so far is that it is not very clear from your request what you actually want.

@Kintetsubuffalo: Draft to check, ping me, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:45, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: That's a great start, thank you so much! Can you use a sans-serif font (Helvetica, Arial...), and can you color the islands for visibility. please?--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 00:16, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
@Kintetsubuffalo: I don't understand, I use Liberation sans and that is the same as (Helvetica, Arial...). When I view it on that link it's correct to me.
With coloring do you mean different colors for each island nation (very hard as it's so many). They have the color we use on maps for "main subject".
names3.svg is the best one, thanks! For me, the font shows up as similar to Times New Roman.--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 03:59, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
@Kintetsubuffalo: Sorry for late replay, the watch function doesn't work all the time.
  • Regarding the font, It might have something to do with server the image is showed on. Let's check it when it's uploaded and if still a problem I will adress it.
I will need the following;
  • Name of the file
  • Description
  • Category/ies at commons
to be able to upload it at commons. --Goran tek-en (talk) 10:43, 12 January 2018 (UTC)

Districts and PBT of Johor[edit]

I would like to ask somebody to do a favor to create a district-level map for Johor with its' local government boundary based of this file. angys (Talk Talk) 10:04, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

We have this Commons:file:Malaysia_location_map.svg as a location map of Malaysia. If you want a district map of a specific part you will have to provide a source that we can use. The pdf-file you link to contains 24 pages so it's not easy to use, you have to understand that we have zero knowledge of the subject and need a source we can work from directly without having to search or read a lot of information. Thanks for your understanding. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:18, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

OK, that will be page 8's map. The place has been shown on the right side of the map and you can see Local government in Malaysia if you feel that was hard to know. angys (Talk Talk) 09:51, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
@*angys*: It would help a lot if you followed the normal way to edit/write here concerning new lines, indent and stuff like that. Also you link to a page "Local governments in Malaysia" that doesn't exist, why?
You write "if you feel that was hard to know" and I don't really understand what you mean but I feel it's not something kind you mean by it. If you don't accept that we graphic workers do just , graphic work, and the requester provides all the necessary information in a way that is easy to access for us it will be very hard to help you with your requests. We have normally zero knowledge on the subject and we just want what we need to complete the request. We don't do research and we don't look thru a lot of material to try to find some information which is probably very clear to the requester. I will check in the pdf on p8. --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:44, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
I just want to tell you that those information has been provided in the PDF. Actually I have given a clear information but if you really dont know I apologize to you. angys (Talk Talk) 02:12, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
@*angys*: If you look at the text/code in edit mode you can see that to make a New line you have to put the code <br> at the end of previous line. Or in the head of the edit window click Advanced and then the Return/Enter symbol.
As you can see at the start of this line there is four :::: which gives an indent which increases as you put more of them. If you look at your edit there were three and now I put four to increase the indent. This is so that it's easy to follow a discussion and get the last edit. When there are many :::::::::::::: we just start over from zero again. Check in any request here to find out this and more. It's very helpful to use the Show preview function below to check everything before one click on Publish changes. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:03, 6 January 2018 (UTC)

Noted angys (Talk Talk) 05:15, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
@*angys*: I want you to look at this draft and check that's it right so far. Then we have to decide how to do with the long names to the right (PBT names). It will be hard to fit them in the different areas so we can do in different ways. Colors is one way but it can easily become a problem for people with color viewing problems. My suggestion is that we put numbers (as I show with 1 and 2) and then either put the names in a legend on the map or put the names in the description field of the map?
Putting it in the description field makes it easier to translate, tell me which you want and what/if to change in the map, please ping me, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:19, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: Thanks, the map look nice. I suggest that the district border can be thicker and the PBT (local authorities) border can be thinner. I think numbering is not ok and maybe you can do for location map and label the map by using template e.g. {{Penang district level labelled map}}. So far Johor have 10 district and 16 local authority, if you want to do a map that already labelled, maybe you can consider just using short name e.g. Majlis Bandaraya Iskandar Puteri (Iskandar Puteri City) for only Iskandar Puteri and for Majlis Daerah Simpang Renggam only Spg. Renggam. Best regards. angys (Talk Talk) 15:33, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
@*angys*: The template {{Penang district level labelled map}} is something that works on wikipedia when some one writes an article. The template use, in this case, a png image as base image and then adding the names. So as a graphic worker I would have done the png (in that case) and then you as a editor of the article will do the rest using the template. I create an image and then I upload it to commons, not wikipedia. I will try to shorten the names and then we will go from there. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:02, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
@*angys*: Draft with names, feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:20, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en:OK, Your maps got a little bit error. Firstly I have noted that the district border you can thicker it and the PBT (local authorities) border can be thinner e.g. Segamat District have 2 PBT due to it's land size too big abd split to Labis town and Segamat municipal..
The second one is spme of the name in the map spell wrong.
  • Tempatan Penggerang can be more shorter to Pengerang (one g, Tempatan means locality)
  • Pasir Guadang is Pasir Gudang
  • Johor Bahru Tengah now called Iskandar Puteri
  • The Segamat should change with Simpang Renggam.
I think the map may be can do 2 version that 1 version is blank while another version with text which is translateable to fit some special script e.g. Japanese, Chinese, Arabisan... That is my little opinion and thank you for your working. :) angys (Talk Talk) 22:56, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
  • @*angys*: If you mean the border in the darker area, district, and the lighter area, PBT. To me there is a big difference int both thickness and type of line, different dashes, so I don't understand why you want it thicker, thinner for?
  • I start to think that I don't really understand the differences of the different types of areas you are talking about. I understand that you try to explain for me by linking to e.g. Segamat District but to me as without any knowledge of the structure levels it's still hard to understand and I really don't want to digg into it.
  • Please just tell me exactly what to change e.g. Change the border between Kluang and Mersing to a thinner line, etc.
  • Once we got this right we can decide which versions you need. New draft with names. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:32, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en:Next time probably I will say it clearly.

  • Q:If you mean the border in the darker area, district, and the lighter area, PBT. To me there is a big difference int both thickness and type of line, different dashes, so I don't understand why you want it thicker, thinner for?
A:District are first place, and than for PBT. You can think that district is bigger than PBT. For you to easier know about it, Segamat District=Segamat+Labis.
  • Q:Please just tell me exactly what to change e.g. Change the border between Kluang and Mersing to a thinner line, etc.
A:OK, Change the border between Kluang and Simpang Renggam, Segamat and Labis, Johor Bahru Iskandar Puteri and Pasir Gudang, Kota Tinggi and Pengerang, Yong Peng and Batu Pahat to a thinner line
Johor Bahru Tengah now called Iskandar Puteri

Malaysia's Administrative divisions very unique because it had seperate to district and PBT (local authorities). Thank you for your understanding.Regards :) angys (Talk Talk) 16:52, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

@*angys*: New draft with different lines etc. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:22, 9 January 2018 (UTC)

That image doesn't have any text in it. What you see as text is generated from <path> structures in the file. This makes it far more difficult (and well beyond my ability) to edit. I could manage a PNG or other bitmap file, or a sensibly constructed SVG, but not an SVG file like this which combines the worse aspects of both. Maproom (talk) 15:55, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

Translation and upload of maps including unit actions from offline sources, in order to provide better maps for a military unit article nominated for FA.

The mapmaker need not do any research on this, simply create a map and add colors; I will be available for questions. Kges1901 (talk) 12:08, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

It's hard to accept when one doesn't know the extent of the request. Saying "simply create a map and add colors" doesn't tell me much. --Goran tek-en (talk) 10:19, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
I will email the original map with translations, all you have to do is edit the translations into the map, and possibly add background colors as these are black and white maps. I have two maps for the Soviet invasion of Poland and four more for campaigns on the Eastern Front. Kges1901 (talk) 11:03, 3 January 2018 (UTC)
Mostly I/we (graphic workers, commons) try to make SVG files for maps as it's better in general, Transition_to_SVG. If it's not that one for a specific reason wants to keep the original map, like historical document or other. So to me there is probably more work on this then what you think. Have you checked so that we can do this, there is no license stopping us?
If there is no problems with licenses and it's OK for you that I convert them into SVG I will take this request, please ping me, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:02, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

@Kges1901: I will start to work with them now. You said before that there was no problem with the license, but to me the maps are taken from a book which probably has a copyright on it. I don't know if the maps are made just for that book or if it's historical documents, but anyway, to my understanding the book still has its copyright. Derivative_works, 2D_copying, Screenshots.
This is were my knowledge about those things starts to be vague, I don't know enough about copyrights like this. So what I can see I can only use those maps as a source of information and then I will have to make new versions of them which differ enough to be considered as my work.

  • @Goran tek-en: The Grodno in the map is this Grodno, the main topic on English Wikipedia. Commons category Commons Category:Maps of Hrodna Region may be useful for you to make base maps. I emailed you links to Google Mymaps that I created noting the populated places. Apologies for it being harder than I anticipated. Kges1901 (talk) 13:31, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: - The draft is great, except that you are missing the Servach River, which is the river right next to Baranovichi. Kges1901 (talk) 23:39, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Check if I got Servach right. Do you want the different types of arrows to be different on the new map also? Can you then list for me what they means. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:51, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: Apologies, I should have been more specific - the Servach is very close to Baranovichi to the west. The arrows represent the movement of the specific military units. To create originality, I suggest you use different colors. For example, you could color each of the brigades a different color and use the same color for the arrows. Specifically: Arrow 1 with triangles is the 2nd Light Tank Brigade, Arrow 2 with dots is the 27th Light Tank Brigade, Arrow 3 with dashes is the 20th Motor Rifle and Machine Gun Brigade, Arrow 4 is the 21st Light Tank Brigade, arrow 6 is the 29th Light Tank Brigade, and arrow 5 is the 32nd Light Tank Brigade. Kges1901 (talk) 14:57, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

@Kges1901: Rivers are very hard to see both on GMaps or OSM. Is it not this one, the red/pink? Otherwise I will need you to show me somehow. --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:43, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: You have it marked in the right place. Note that the mouth of the Servach is here (it flows into the Neman). It is easier to see rivers on map view. However, I noticed that you marked the national borders for modern day, but since this is in a historical context the 1939 border should be marked. You can find the 1939 borders in the map I sent you, and they are clearly delineated in files on Commons such as File:Kamp_wrzesn9-16.png Kges1901 (talk) 18:09, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: I was just going to ask you about the borders, thanks for the info. At commons and wikipedia we try to keep some kind of structure and identity between maps that have the same purpose, this so it's easier for the viewers. For this reason we have different templates and this template is for military maps. If you look at the top left part there are symbols for different sizes and types of units. In this new draft I have used them. But I'm not sure I got the sizes or types of units correct so check this and everything else also, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:56, 9 January 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: You got the unit types right except that the 20th MRB is a brigade and thus should have one 'X'. The 15th TC is a corps and should have three 'X's.

17-24[edit]

@Kges1901: When I look at 20-24 on the map I can't help wonder why is this not included in 17-20 which then would turn into 17-24? I will await your answer before uploading the previous one or start on this one, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:20, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: I initially thought it should be separate because otherwise the first map would cover too large of an area. But I noticed that you included the Suwalki area in the first map, so the second would should be combined. I will send you a mymap of the key locations. Kges1901 (talk) 21:37, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: Line 1 is the initial Soviet position on 22 August 1942. Line 2 is the positions at the end of the day. Arrows 3 and 4 are the movement of the 15th Tank Corps. Line 5 is the Soviet position on 26 August. Arrow 6 is also 15th Tank Corps, arrow 7 is a German attack. The gray area is indeed forest, and should be marked.

@Kges1901: I found a typo in the legend on this Commons:File:15th Tank Corps in Poland 17–24 September 1939.svg, I had switched Corps Brigade, new version uploaded (it can take some time for the preview to be updated). The others are coming soon. --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:51, 19 January 2018 (UTC)
@Kges1901: Drafts to check. I didn't really understand the different arrows so I have made some assumptions and you need to correct me, the legends and everything else.
@Goran tek-en: Comments:
  • 22 August: the other movement directly south of Novogryn is of both the 15th Tank Corps and the 154th Rifle Division (the second one is an infantry unit, a division, abbreviated as RD). Note that during the battle the corps was subordinated to the 3rd Tank Army (an armored unit, a field army equivalent, abbreviated as TA), so you can put an icon for the 3rd Tank Army behind the Soviet line close to the west of Slobodka.
  • 26 August: The northernmost attack towards Belyy Kamen is actually by the 3rd Tank Corps. That line south of Novogryn is actually for 27 August, after the end of the period. The Soviet arrows heading east for the 12th and 15th Tank Corps represent repositioning or retreats.
  • 26–31 August (more accurately 27–31 August): The northernmost arrow towards Ozhigovo is actually the 3rd Tank Corps. Again the eastward/northward Soviet arrows for the 12th and 15th Tank Corps are retreats. Since the scale is different, you should extend the 15th Tank Corps arrow for this map closer to Leonovo as shown in the map I sent you for greater accuracy, and move the start of the arrow very close northwest of Pakom.

That image doesn't have any text in it. What you see as text is generated from <path> structures in the file. This makes it far more difficult (and well beyond my ability) to edit. I could manage a PNG or other bitmap file, or a sensibly constructed SVG, but not an SVG file like this which combines the worse aspects of both. Maproom (talk) 15:55, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

Request
I would like to ask somebody to do a favor to create a district-level map for Johor with its' local government boundary based of this file. angys (Talk Talk) 10:04, 22 December 2017 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)

We have this Commons:file:Malaysia_location_map.svg as a location map of Malaysia. If you want a district map of a specific part you will have to provide a source that we can use. The pdf-file you link to contains 24 pages so it's not easy to use, you have to understand that we have zero knowledge of the subject and need a source we can work from directly without having to search or read a lot of information. Thanks for your understanding. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:18, 3 January 2018 (UTC)

OK, that will be page 8's map. The place has been shown on the right side of the map and you can see Local government in Malaysia if you feel that was hard to know. angys (Talk Talk) 09:51, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
@*angys*: It would help a lot if you followed the normal way to edit/write here concerning new lines, indent and stuff like that. Also you link to a page "Local governments in Malaysia" that doesn't exist, why?
You write "if you feel that was hard to know" and I don't really understand what you mean but I feel it's not something kind you mean by it. If you don't accept that we graphic workers do just , graphic work, and the requester provides all the necessary information in a way that is easy to access for us it will be very hard to help you with your requests. We have normally zero knowledge on the subject and we just want what we need to complete the request. We don't do research and we don't look thru a lot of material to try to find some information which is probably very clear to the requester. I will check in the pdf on p8. --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:44, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
I just want to tell you that those information has been provided in the PDF. Actually I have given a clear information but if you really dont know I apologize to you. angys (Talk Talk) 02:12, 6 January 2018 (UTC)
@*angys*: If you look at the text/code in edit mode you can see that to make a New line you have to put the code <br> at the end of previous line. Or in the head of the edit window click Advanced and then the Return/Enter symbol.
As you can see at the start of this line there is four :::: which gives an indent which increases as you put more of them. If you look at your edit there were three and now I put four to increase the indent. This is so that it's easy to follow a discussion and get the last edit. When there are many :::::::::::::: we just start over from zero again. Check in any request here to find out this and more.

Noted angys (Talk Talk) 05:15, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
@*angys*: I want you to look at this draft and check that's it right so far. Then we have to decide how to do with the long names to the right (PBT names). It will be hard to fit them in the different areas so we can do in different ways. Colors is one way but it can easily become a problem for people with color viewing problems. My suggestion is that we put numbers (as I show with 1 and 2) and then either put the names in a legend on the map or put the names in the description field of the map?
Putting it in the description field makes it easier to translate, tell me which you want and what/if to change in the map, please ping me, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:19, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: Thanks, the map look nice. I suggest that the district border can be thicker and the PBT (local authorities) border can be thinner. I think numbering is not ok and maybe you can do for location map and label the map by using template e.g. {{Penang district level labelled map}}. So far Johor have 10 district and 16 local authority, if you want to do a map that already labelled, maybe you can consider just using short name e.g. Majlis Bandaraya Iskandar Puteri (Iskandar Puteri City) for only Iskandar Puteri and for Majlis Daerah Simpang Renggam only Spg. Renggam. Best regards. angys (Talk Talk) 15:33, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
@*angys*: The template {{Penang district level labelled map}} is something that works on wikipedia when some one writes an article. The template use, in this case, a png image as base image and then adding the names. So as a graphic worker I would have done the png (in that case) and then you as a editor of the article will do the rest using the template. I create an image and then I upload it to commons, not wikipedia. I will try to shorten the names and then we will go from there. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:02, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
@*angys*: Draft with names, feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:20, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en:OK, Your maps got a little bit error. Firstly I have noted that the district border you can thicker it and the PBT (local authorities) border can be thinner e.g. Segamat District have 2 PBT due to it's land size too big abd split to Labis town and Segamat municipal..
The second one is spme of the name in the map spell wrong.
  • Tempatan Penggerang can be more shorter to Pengerang (one g, Tempatan means locality)
  • Pasir Guadang is Pasir Gudang
  • Johor Bahru Tengah now called Iskandar Puteri
  • The Segamat should change with Simpang Renggam.
I think the map may be can do 2 version that 1 version is blank while another version with text which is translateable to fit some special script e.g. Japanese, Chinese, Arabisan... That is my little opinion and thank you for your working. :) angys (Talk Talk) 22:56, 7 January 2018 (UTC)
  • @*angys*: If you mean the border in the darker area, district, and the lighter area, PBT. To me there is a big difference int both thickness and type of line, different dashes, so I don't understand why you want it thicker, thinner for?
  • I start to think that I don't really understand the differences of the different types of areas you are talking about. I understand that you try to explain for me by linking to e.g. Segamat District but to me as without any knowledge of the structure levels it's still hard to understand and I really don't want to digg into it.
  • Please just tell me exactly what to change e.g. Change the border between Kluang and Mersing to a thinner line, etc.
  • Once we got this right we can decide which versions you need. New draft with names. --Goran tek-en (talk) 14:32, 8 January 2018 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en:Next time probably I will say it clearly.

  • Q:If you mean the border in the darker area, district, and the lighter area, PBT. To me there is a big difference int both thickness and type of line, different dashes, so I don't understand why you want it thicker, thinner for?
A:District are first place, and than for PBT. You can think that district is bigger than PBT. For you to easier know about it, Segamat District=Segamat+Labis.
  • Q:Please just tell me exactly what to change e.g. Change the border between Kluang and Mersing to a thinner line, etc.
A:OK, Change the border between Kluang and Simpang Renggam, Segamat and Labis, Johor Bahru Iskandar Puteri and Pasir Gudang, Kota Tinggi and Pengerang, Yong Peng and Batu Pahat to a thinner line
Johor Bahru Tengah now called Iskandar Puteri

Malaysia's Administrative divisions very unique because it had seperate to district and PBT (local authorities). Thank you for your understanding.Regards :) angys (Talk Talk) 16:52, 8 January 2018 (UTC)
