  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment What are the units in the distance scale? What is the principal scale of the map? Where is North? Not all the cartographic symbols used in the representation are identified in the legend. The image seems too small to be useful as a real map. -- Alvesgaspar 23:17, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose - lettering too small to read comfortably at full size. - MPF 13:27, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
    Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - Yet another unfounded comment, since with SVG, full size is not defined. Please read article about en:SVG Pabix  15:08, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
    Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - "Please read article about SVG" - read it, and don't understand about 98% of it. One thing it does say, is that "The use of SVG on the web is in its infancy" . . . in other words, you can't expect most people to be able to resize it, because their computers are too old to have it on. If I try clicking on the pic to see it full size, I just get a warning about an unknown file type, that may harm my computer. I'm not willing to take this risk. - MPF 21:38, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
    Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment - We know the format is scalable. But how to make the image bigger in this context, to facilitate the evaluation? And how to scale it to adequate size in other Wikipedia projects? I tried to download and convert the image with CorelDraw and failed. -- Alvesgaspar 15:53, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
    There're several tools wich may help you. If you use Firefox you may try this extension so you can pan an zoom SVGs directly from the navigator. Francisco M. Marzoa 00:28, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
    Opera navigator fully supports SVG, otherwise, and you can edit the image in software like Inskscape.  Pabix  07:35, 12 October 2006 (UTC)

  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose A static map like this one shouldn’t be scalable: if you reduce the scale, the lettering and other cartographic symbols might become illegible and the image crowded; if you enlarge it, you are suggesting a precision (and accuracy) that the map doesn’t have. Note that topographic maps of the same region, but with different scales, have different detail and symbology (different levels of “generalization”, as cartographers say). For this particular map I suggest the following improvements: (i) make it non-scalable; (ii) state the scale of the map; (iii) indicate the direction of North; (iv) draw and graduate one parallel and one meridian (or suggest them) so that we know where in Earth this place is; (v) improve the legend so that all symbols used in the map are explained (railroads, road tags, etc.); (vi) make the neatline (the exterior line that frames the map) more sober. Good work! -- Alvesgaspar 08:36, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
    • What on earth do you mean by make it non-scalable? --Dschwen 15:54, 19 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment There is something important I forgot to say: the map is beatiful and nicely done. But beauty is not enough, in this case, to being really useful and reach FP standards. -- Alvesgaspar 13:10, 12 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol support vote.svg Support -- Lerdsuwa 09:09, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
  • Symbol oppose vote.svg Oppose not all symbols are explained in the legend, no arrow that indicates north, no distance units used in scalebar. This map just does not satify some basic cartographic requisites. Tbc 11:58, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
Indicates north there is on the down in Legend. What symbols aren't explained in the legend? Marcin n®  12:06, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
The railroad and the footpath nearby the water (if it is a footpath) for example. Now I took a second look a few other things struck me: first, the roads are digitized as polygons and not as line elements (there are indeed some arguments why in some situations thsi is preferred, but not for the purpose of this map). For example: the road Narutowicza, Mickiewicza, the railroad, ... gets wider and smaller. It would surprise me if the roads really do this, it looks more like sloppiness to me (just like the footpath that leaves the grass on the right). Also the polygons are not "snapped" to one another (look at the orange building/grass contact zone in the lower right), that will create small meaningless polygons that will be clearly visible at full zoom (definately in svg). Please do not interpret these comments the wrong way, they are meant to be constructive. The map is good, but really should not be a featured one. Tbc 13:11, 13 October 2006 (UTC)
