How to help?[edit]

Categorization[edit]

On upload the files are placed in Category:Maps from Geographicus to be categorized. You can help by replacing this temporary category with relevant real categories. You probably want to enable a tool like HotCat for quick categorization.

Matching cartographers[edit]

Every file contains a link to a cartographer at the Geograph website. This needs to be replaced with:

  • The name of the cartographer or a Creator template
  • Possibly a category for the cartographer.

This can be done at User:Multichill/Geographicus/cartographers
