Map of towns represented by delegates during All-Albanian Congress which resulted with Albanian Declaration of Independence[edit]

Stale: DyceBot (talk) 07:00, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

Article(s): Albanian Declaration of Independence

Request: I would like to have a map with clearly defined borders of four Albanian vilayets and all signatories of the Albanian Declaration of Independence presented with points (towns) on the map, depending on the city they represented during All-Albanian Congress. When reader point to the specific town I would like that he would be presented with a small text (within some kind of pop out infobox if possible) with names of all signatories of the Albanian Declaration of Independence from that city, and the name of the villayet. A map of the four albanian vilayets can be used for the basis of new map together with the data about signatories of the Albanian Declaration of Independence. There are signatories from Romania, that should be listed within separate legend, if possible. In case that any additional information is needed, please do not hasitate to contact me on my talk page. Thanks in advance. Antidiskriminator (talk) 10:35, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

I am willing to do my best to assist someone who would be willing to make such map.--Antidiskriminator (talk) 22:07, 2 June 2011 (UTC)

Redraw File:Operation Kita.jpg[edit]

Article(s): operation Kita

Request: Vectorize and clean up. I've given three SVG maps that can be used as a base, with the proper projection; simply uncolor and add in the convoy's route. This is for the A-class review of the article; if you need to use map symbols, use the MILHIST templates. bahamut0013wordsdeeds 11:56, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Queen Maud Land[edit]

Stale: DyceBot (talk) 07:01, 9 June 2011 (UTC)

Article(s): Queen Maud Land

Request: The article has a basic map showing the outline of the territory, but the article could use a more in-depth map (I plan to start improving the article for GA). I have found a map I like which is more or less how I imagine it at the Norwegian encyclopedia Store norske leksikon [1]. If someone could make a map similar to this it would be much appreciated. The text in the cited map is in Norwegian, but I should be able to translate it for a new map if needed. – Bellatores (t.) 18:44, 9 May 2011 (UTC)

High Line[edit]

Article(s): High Line (New York City)

Request: Please expand map, which is missing the lower portion where the line used to run. You can base your work here or also rotate the edited map slightly to make the streets on a horizontal level [2]. Gryffindor (talk) 00:24, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): The map is correct per the article. - Presidentman talk·contribs Random Picture of the Day (Talkback) 11:36, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

No I'm afraid you must have misunderstood. I am referring to the lower second map on the webpage (Neighborhood Context Map), which shows the how the original line (labelled "Original High Line (demolished)") actually continued onwards south of Gansevoort Street along Washington Street until it reached St. John's Terminal, it's also described in the article. My request is to extend the map. Gryffindor (talk) 13:44, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Quick Map of Verendrye journey ?[edit]

Stale: DyceBot (talk) 07:01, 18 June 2011 (UTC)

Article(s):Louis-Joseph Gaultier de La Vérendrye

Request: This should be fairly easy if someone wants to. All that is needed is to draw a line on an existing map, add some labels and possibly crop the original map to a smaller area. Everything needed is in the article. It should be called VerendryePossibleRoute or similar since the route is not certain. 'Mandan Village?' should end in a question mark.

Blake River Megacaldera Complex[edit]

Stale: DyceBot (talk) 07:00, 26 June 2011 (UTC)

Article(s): Blake River Megacaldera Complex

Request: The article has a basic map showing the outline of the volcano, but the article could use a more in-depth map (I plan to start improving the article for GA or even FA). On this webpage there is a geologic map on page 3 that would be good to show the overall geology of the volcano (don't include the "showings" as they are unnesessary). The article could also use a better location map as the current map is a bit messy. Volcanoguy 07:09, 26 May 2011 (UTC)

If you fill ambitious, you can use different colors and add a built-in legend, but it is not necessary. If the image is deleted, I've a local copy.

Map for Woomera Test Range[edit]

Resolved: (talk)

Article(s): Woomera Test Range

Request: Could someone create a map showing the area covered by the Woomera test range? There are two PDF maps linked here that show the extent of the current area in relation to the state of South Australia or the continent as a whole, and a news article here that (down the bottom), shows the current and previous extent of the site. The 'current' area should be sufficient for the article's needs. I leave it for the discretion of the mapmaker as to whether you do it based on the South Australia or Australia maps. Thanks in advance! -- saberwyn 01:43, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Map of Vieques[edit]

Resolved: Aditya 7

Article(s): Vieques

Request: Hi, currently this map is available in two sizes: a small "preview" size displayed at File:Vieques Barrios.jpg and a humungously large size that tries to open when you click on the former but grinds my PC to a complete halt. I wonder if it would be possible to provide a more sensibly sized midway version where all the text is legible but the image can be loaded into the average browser within the average user's timespan of tolerance.

Australia/New Guinea Map[edit]


Article(s): Papilio aegeus

Request: I've been creating some range maps lately, and I was interested in creating a range map showing a range that is across both Australia and Papua New Guinea. To do this I'm going to need a range map that shows both countries, but I'm having trouble finding one. I did find this one, but I'd prefer if there wasn't that slanty-curve on it. I'm looking for a map that is grey, blank without labels, such as this (but showing New Guinea also).

Does anybody know where a map like this is? Or is there some place where I can crop it from? --JamesDouch (talk) 11:12, 21 July 2011 (UTC)
