Slavery in the USA[edit]

Note: This request was moved from the Images to improve or create to the Map workshop. Ivan Akira (talk) 02:08, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Article(s): en:Slavery in the United States and several similar articles in five other languages

Request: Starting with 1821, some of the northeastern states change from the colour of free states to the colour of other countries; please recolour them so that they appear free. Nyttend (talk) 01:42, 30 October 2009 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): I've mentioned to the author about using APNG instead of GIF, which would make it easy to avoid the limited color palette. I have to say, though, that while I do notice the change in coloring, it's not enough to make me think they are gray ('other countries') — you might need a new monitor, or a vision test? ¦ Reisio (talk) 21:39, 20 December 2009 (UTC) other: This graphic has been cleaned up. Links to the Photoshop/GIMP original files are temporarily available in the comments at the bottom of User talk:Kenmayer, if anyone wants to use them to create a APNG.--Kenmayer (talk) 18:57, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Venues for the 2016 Summer Olympics[edit]

Request: Hi. Someone could translate them to Portuguese (I can describe the substitutes Portuguese terms) or remove the text (keeping the pictograms) perhaps using numbers to each venue? Regards Mwaldeck msg 14:22, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Please state what you want changed on which pictures--DieBuche (talk) 14:07, 19 May 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, I'm talking about File:Rio de Janeiro bid venues for the 2016 Summer Olympics.svg. Regards, Mwaldeck msg 06:40, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

@Mwaldeck: I need your feedback as below if you want me to be able to complete your request, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:28, 17 January 2014 (UTC)

Stock-brush-red.svg Request taken by goran_tek-en You have to decide if you want numbers or translations and if translation, provide me with a text file English -> Portuguese. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:20, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
Sorry about the delay for answer your question. I forgot this request and I only saw the message now. I'll prepare the list with the translation as you requested. Can you wait a day or two? Regards Mwaldeck msg 20:25, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

I have asked for needed information or/and feedback to be able to fulfill your request but haven't received any so I must thus withdraw my Taken.
If you further on want me to work on this you have to contact me AND provide the information needed, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 12:14, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Historic district map[edit]

Request: Would someone be interested in creating a map for East Washington Historic District, showing the general bounds of the historic district? This district in located in East Washington, Pennsylvania. The coordinates are available at the Wikipedia page. The district is described as being roughly bounded by "North, East, and Wade Aves., Wheeling, Beau, and Chestnut Sts." I am hoping for something that resembles File:Jesus College, Oxford - plan.jpg, which I understand was created at the Wikipedia Map Lab (at Wikipedia:Graphic Lab/Map workshop/Archive/Jul 2009#Jesus College, Oxford sketch map). Thanks!GrapedApe (talk) 04:54, 30 May 2010 (UTC)

Redrawing of Mass Rapid Transit (Singapore) system map[edit]

Request: Is it possible for you to redraw this map so that it is not a derivative work of this website? (Note that there are some new train lines, so you will have to refer to the website for the latest version of the system.) — Cheers, JackLee talk 16:11, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Anybody able to help? — Cheers, JackLee talk 12:22, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

The original graphic has been deleted as it is a copyright violation, but if anyone can produce a redrawn map based on the one on the website that is not too similar, that would be great. — Cheers, JackLee talk 08:33, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Districts of Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan[edit]

Note: This request was moved from the IIllustration workshop to the Map workshop. Ivan Akira (talk) 00:35, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Request: Please create location maps for each district within provinces (not within country), like this. The district names you can take from en-wiki or from here (for Kyrgyzstan). Anatoliy (talk) 16:15, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

B52 Map[edit]


Request: It's being claimed as fair use on the English Wikipedia, which I doubt is acceptable under en.WP's fair use policies. Is there anyone someone could turn that into a map using free imagery? File:Fairchild_B-52_crash_overview.png is a diagram based version of the same incident. --Prosfilaes (talk) 05:22, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Tibetan Settlements in India location map[edit]

Request: Would it be possible to modify such a map to indicate places were the Tibetan diaspora is mostly located. It would be nice to use in the articles on the Tibetan diaspora in 5 languages, (fr/en/nl/es/eo) like:, as well as in a number of articles on the Tibetan diaspora. Here is a map with lots of details : There are 2 options : one is to indicate the places, the other one, more simple, is to make a location map called "Tibetan diaspora location map" showing India, Bhutan and Nepal in white.

Rédacteur Tibet (talk) 19:42, 29 October 2010 (UTC) is not working. Is there any other map to refer? --Jayarathina (talk) 10:10, 5 December 2012 (UTC)

Coalicion contra Gadafi 2011.svg[edit]

Request: I've uploaded this translated version after changing text with Inkscape. Then, in 2nd and 3rd versions I've used the second original translatable image and I've "embedded all images", but nothing happens. I've checked with W3C Markup Validation Service, been answered with 45 Errors, 4 warning(s)! :O Can you help me to get it corrected, please? DPC (talk) 10:21, 25 March 2011 (UTC)

Republic of Venice[edit]

Request: Is it possible for you to redraw this map of Republic of Venice's Terra Ferma? Is the most complete work i know. Lord Hidelan 08:11, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Clean map of US area codes[edit]

I noticed there is not a single map on Commons which shows all the US area codes. Could we create one? To get started, I uploaded File:Area codes & time zones US.jpg. But this isn't sufficient because it has time zone data, because it is littered with in-image verbage, and because it's a jpeg.

It would be best if the image were in SVG format, so that it could be easily changed when a new area code is introduced (as happens fairly frequently). Magog the Ogre (talk) 02:46, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Maps of Agra[edit]

Request: Not a request, but a suggestion: maps of Agra could be made from these. Yann (talk) 17:19, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

Map with many inaccuracies for legality of Salvia divinorum by jurisdiction[edit]

Request: This map is very incorrect, and desprately needs to be recolored so that the map remains true to the real legal status of the substance. Specifically:

The following states are marked as areas where the substance is banned, however, they are not; they have only introduced legislation and they have not been approved yet. I request that a new color be added to the map to represent jurisdictions where legislation is pending and the outcome is not yet known:

  • New York
  • New Jersey
  • Indiana
  • South Carolina
  • Texas
  • Massachusetts
  • Pennsylvania
  • Utah
  • Alaska
  • Maryland (Note that Maryland is not colored as a banned jurisdiction like the previous ones)

Additionally, the following areas either are colored wrong, or are not colored at all, when they should be marked as areas where it is banned:

  • Alabama
  • Connecticut
  • Delaware
  • Florida
  • Illinois
  • Kansas
  • Kentucky
  • Louisiana
  • Minnesota
  • Mississippi
  • Missouri
  • North Carolina
  • North Dakota
  • Oklahoma
  • South Dakota
  • Tennessee

I used for reference. Please note that I may have missed a few places, so please double check. The only places that seem to have problems are individual states in the US.

Thank you! --FarnhamJ (talk) 01:42, 28 January 2012 (UTC)

Need help with a pixelated map[edit]

Request: Please help me smooth out this image. The topper part of the diagram is strongly pixelated. Maybe it could be vectorized with lines or improved in some way. The lines of the states in Venezuela don't necessarily need to be present. Image doesn't have to be perfect. But I need to minimize the difference between the top map and the lower map, cos' right now it looks really mediocre! If you open the file you'll see what I'm talking about. The file is important for the article which is pretty complete so far. The lower diagram can be modified too if desired, with less details as well, or can be left the same. Any help would be strongly appreciated, thanks for your time. Regards, Paolo Costa (talk) 02:24, 31 January 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

State of Sequoyah map[edit]

Request: A new clearer map needs to be created to allow for greater user readability, as it stands right now it hard to read the county names that are shown in the image. Also if it could be in SVG format. Dcheagle 21:55, 13 February 2012 (UTC)

Is anyone going to work on this.--Dcheagle 02:49, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

I take it no one is Available to handle this request.--Dcheagle 07:22, 7 May 2012 (UTC)
It is a very difficult task without high-quality source data. Powers (talk) 01:23, 8 May 2012 (UTC)
What would be needed--Dcheagle 02:41, 26 May 2012 (UTC)
Either a scan of a higher-quality map (this one is difficult to read in some spots, and the thickness of the lines causes ambiguity in some places), or a textual description of the boundaries of every county on the map. Or detailed coordinate data. As is, someone could trace the map you provided, but the result would risk being inaccurate, even if the text was more readable. Powers (talk) 02:34, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
I may be able to find a higher quality map it may take me a few days to locate it though--Dcheagle 18:38, 28 May 2012 (UTC)
I have found a Higher quality map--Dcheagle 02:18, 31 May 2012 (UTC)
That's about as high quality a scan as possible for that particular map. My point, though, was that a) it will take a long time to trace it and b) even so there will be some errors inherent in the tracing, simply because it is coming from a tracing and not from actual geophysical data. Powers (talk) 02:17, 3 June 2012 (UTC)
It may be useful to simply take the Oklahoma county map and highlight all the counties that are depicted in that historical map. Dominic (talk) 06:10, 12 June 2012 (UTC)
That Could work the only problem that I would see with doing that is that the upper counties dont quite match up with there counter parts on the Sequoyah map. Comes close though which would be fine with me, at this point I'm looking for any thing that would work.--Dcheagle 01:12, 14 June 2012 (UTC)

Have you tried SVGtranslate? -- πϵρήλιο 13:56, 7 March 2012 (UTC)
Not a tech guy, so I wouldn't dare.--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 12:00, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
Doesn't look like it requires much in the way of technical knowledge. Just provide the appropriate translations for each text tag -- which is something you'll probably need to do anyway to get this request done, as otherwise you'll have to wait for someone proficient in Spanish willing to take the time to research proper translations. Powers (talk) 18:13, 15 March 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): The translation tool has moved to but someone will need to provide the translations. I believe I can do one of them. Delphi234 (talk) 02:45, 13 January 2015 (UTC)

Korridor train[edit]

Request: I'm asking if somebody can create a new image, representing the rail way path from Innsbruck to Lienz, passing through Italy. I don't know how to do it, but the example image may help a volounteer... Thanks in advance. Llorenzi (talk) 17:36, 3 April 2012 (UTC)

Today I try to it by using for the background Google Maps-For-Free. What do you think about it? --Llorenzi (talk) 15:24, 12 April 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

w:Greater Sacramento Area[edit]

Request: I'm trying to make an image for w:Sacramento metropolitan area. The area in yellow on the California map has nearly every county but there's one in Nevada as well; w:Douglas County, Nevada. In the cluster of smaller counties on the middle left of Nevada, it is the bottom left one (hopefully that makes sense) and it should be labeled "Douglas" in the same font that's used on the California map. I think leaving the Sacramento Area yellow/golden would be fine, but if we could make the rest of the counties' labels go away and then cut out anything above Butte, below San Joaquin, and anything to the right (east) of a couple counties from Douglas that would be amazing (to limit scope to this area but give a small amount of context). If you have a better idea to try to do this that would look better, I'm open to suggestions. I tried doing this on Inkscape today but was very unsuccessful. :( --Killiondude (talk) 01:25, 29 April 2012 (UTC)

How about the above PNG as a guide? I'd do it myself but I don't have any spare time at the minute. --Fred the Oyster (talk) 11:09, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
As a guide for where Douglas County is, that's a good idea! Thanks for at least reading my request. :) Hopefully someone with enough time and graphic talent can piece this together. :) Killiondude (talk) 03:15, 2 May 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): @Killiondude: Do you still want this map? If so contact me and I will do it, but probably will need your help along the way, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 07:49, 4 April 2015 (UTC)

File:Europe polar stereographic Caucasus Urals boundary.svg[edit]

Europe polar cub f.svg

Request: Please add the borders of Morocco and Kosovo. --Liam987 (talk) 17:57, 1 August 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): Stock-brush-red.svg Request taken by Silvia eadt (talk): I'm working on it, i'll be finished in a few days. // ✓ Done: That's the best I can do editing the file with the programs I'm able to use, I added the borders but the definition of the image is in a lower detail now.

Map of Rio de Janeiro's east side[edit]

Request: This map was extracted from OpenStreetMap and it seems to have some flaws, maybe non-valid code. It turned out to be very difficult to edit. I cannot see objects outside the page borders (on Inkscape) and is very hard to change the highways color, for example. Could someone take a look at it? Best regards; Felipe Menegaz 01:50, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s): @Felipe Menegaz: It' s a very complex map with a LOT OF information and very heavy to work with. There is a clipping or a mask which has to be released to get to the things outside the page. You could probably find the roads by searching for there colors and change them in that way. But to me the main question is, Do you REALLY need a map with all that information?
Would it not be better to make a map with just the content you need? --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:03, 11 February 2014 (UTC)

Need a map of the Kakatiya Empire in India[edit]



Hi, would someone be kind enough to make a map detailing the borders of the Kakatiya Empire at its height?

The maps for reference can be found in these google books:

Graphist opinion(s):

You haven't signed your request which would have been great.
The first link is broken so please correct that, and what kind of map do you want. Just lines like your second link or what?
Would also be great if you told me where in India this was?
          This is roughly located between 13 degrees N and 20 degrees N and 75 degrees E and 82 degrees E. Lateraldissonance (talk)
If you want me to fulfill this request provide me with the needed information, and send me a message and I will do it. Thanks --Goran tek-en (talk) 11:48, 3 January 2014 (UTC)
@Lateraldissonance: Thanks for that but the first link says that "either it can't show that page or it has reached maximal shows of the book". And what page should it be if it worked?
The second link shows a cover of a book and some information on it, I can't see how to view it and if so what page?
I recommend that you make a screen print of the page/map you mean and send it to me on email from my user page. I really would like to get a map with higher resolution if you have that. I can't do anything until you have sent me the maps, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 11:51, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

An approximate Open Street Map of the area is here: --Oaktree b (talk) 03:50, 11 December 2013 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

@Oaktree: Based on the information you provide above it's really hard for someone without local/special knowledge to know what area you mean and we are graphists so we are not likely to have your special knowledge of this subject. I don't understand what you mean by "PGI designation"? You would also have to inform about what type of map you would like. Just the area, rivers, part of the whole Morocco and so on. It's always good if you can show an example of what you would like also, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:25, 23 January 2014 (UTC)

adding US state borders to world map[edit]

Just need one of the following:

Article(s): en:Same-sex marriage, en:LGBT adoption, and related articles


Could we have the borders of the 48 contiguous US states fitted to File:BlankMap-World6.svg? We've been adding them one by one to the maps above, but there are enough of them now that the distortions we've introduced are starting to interfere with each other.
As a secondary priority, state boundaries for Mexico and Australia may prove useful in the next couple years, but the hack job I've done is good enough for now.
If you work on the blank world map, I can copy it over to the other two myself (assuming I can copy & paste from it in Inkscape). If there already is a version of this map w subnational boundaries, please just point it out and I'll take it from there. --Kwamikagami (talk) 23:05, 14 February 2014 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

It's a problem that the other maps we have with all the states has another point of center, projection and so on. There is this file BlankMap-USA-states-Canada-provinces, HI closer, is that what you want regarding the 48 states of US?
It doesn't really fit so I'm not sure what to do. I might be able to tweak it in, but then it wont be accurate (if there is such a thing with maps).
This is a blank base map so I think we should do it really accurate. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:25, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
Yes, that's what I was looking for. I thought you might know the point-of-center and projection, and could therefore adjust another map to fit. If you can't, then we might as well stick with the hack job I'm doing. Kwamikagami (talk) 08:25, 12 March 2014 (UTC)
I don't but maybe someone else does. So if you don't get any other response or you decide to do it your self please close this request. --Goran tek-en (talk) 15:31, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

Subnational entities on world map?[edit]

Many possibilities. I want to use them now on Cape Town Treaty, where the Aircraft protocol does not apply to new brunswick... But it would also enable easier updating of maps in Category:SVG maps of the world with subnational borders, which is now often a specialist work or "breaking the nice svg-code" colouring
There are several world maps that combine information on laws of both national and subnational jurisdictions. For example w:speed limits by country are controlled mostly by federal law, but in certain systems (notably the US) by state law. The need for a second level subdivision is mainly seen for Canada, the US, the UK and Australia. There are several maps that include second level subdivisions of those states (see above), but none of them are easily editable with a text editor as the world maps are. I therefore think that a
  • worldmap based on File:BlankMap-World6.svg
  • with second level subdivisions of Canada, the US, the UK and Australia
  • for which the colouring can be indicated through w:ISO 3166-2 (e.g. w:ISO 3166-2:CA with British Columbia as ca-bc)
  • where the subnational borders can be "switched on" and "switched off"

Would that be possible? Maybe good to start with Canada and from there see how it is working? Thanks in advance! --L.tak (talk) 15:58, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Even though the source was jpeg, a png would be much better - especially in a cleaned up version - there is nothing that needs to be in a compressed format - and a jpeg introduces artifacts. Delphi234 (talk) 03:10, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

Jpeg is a lossy format, and a lot of "noise" is introduced as an artifact just from the compression process. PNG is lossless, so whatever you clean up, stays cleaned up. See {{BadJPEG}} for a link to the article on compression artifacts. Delphi234 (talk) 21:41, 29 January 2015 (UTC)

@Delphi234:I guess you can do that your self. Download the pdf you want. Right click on it and click on open with Gimp. If you don't have Gimp you can download it, it's open source. You will then get a window that will ask you with what resolution you want to open the pdf. I guess you can set it to 200 pixels/in. Then you export the image as x.png and upload it to commons. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:46, 17 January 2015 (UTC)

I am a bit overloaded with programs that I have already added, so if someone else has Gimp or Acrobat that would be a big help.

Vectorize map of WWII Germany[edit]

Large number of articles. The file is used on most Wikis.
Perhaps a bit of challenge(?), but I thought I'd post it if someone out there feels like they might to give it a shot. The need for this image is present everywhere, but we're still using a pretty low-res PNG image, and I think we've refined the file's factual content to the point that its ready for an upgrade to SVG. If anyone's up for it, your file will be up on quite a lot of high-traffic articles, and I'm sure you'll have the gratitude of WWII-buff editors everywhere. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 23:00, 21 January 2015 (UTC)

Seems great. The winter offensive area could be in stripes, I guess. And the Soviets and Western Allies could be in different colour schemes per the original image. The white outline of the text seems a bit over-contrasting with the black background in places. I don't think we need a frame... That's all I've got. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 09:49, 2 March 2015 (UTC)
@DIREKTOR: You wrote "There's no need imo to follow exactly the style of the PNG map" so I don't really understand some remarks, but I do as you like it to be (for the most).
  • What is the difference if the winter area is striped or solid colored?
  • The allied were one entity so why different colors?
  • To me the frame holds the map together and gives it a clear ending. If you not really bad wont it to be removed I would like to keep it. To me it's graphically better.
  • The white outline is for the texts that cross black lines, to dark background etc. I have made them softer.
New draft to look at and give me feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 16:41, 3 March 2015 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en: (sorry, was absent for a while.)
  • No difference, really. I just like the striped style.
  • That's how the map was for the past several years. I don't think its a bad idea. In many ways the USSR and the Western Allies were separate combat entities.
  • I don't think we need a frame as it'll just be double-framed in any thumbnail and/or infobox.
  • Could you make the text white over darker areas? D'you think that's a good idea?
--DIREKTOR (TALK) 16:24, 16 March 2015 (UTC)

@DIREKTOR: Look at this draft here. Why there are small dark areas on some borders I don't know because they are all white. At this render link you can see how it looks like when I test it on a rendering tool we have. This is doing exactly what any Wikimedia site will do. When you look at my drafts that is in another place which renders it differently. I haven't done the legend or text yet. I want you to see if I got it right and that is what you want, give me feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:45, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
@Goran tek-en:. Yeah, I always open them in Inkscape, they're white to me as well and I think that's how they'll appear once uploaded. I can think of no nitpicks besides asking for a more subdued shade of green, perhaps slightly closer to the PNG image. The inland waters appear to be blue rather than white... Otherwise, very nice work indeed. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 23:16, 17 March 2015 (UTC)
P.s, could the striped area be red/blue, rather than red/white? With the stripes at an angle, rather than vertical? --DIREKTOR (TALK) 00:08, 18 March 2015 (UTC)

@DIREKTOR: Look at this draft here.

  • You wrote: "subdued shade of green, perhaps" but I guess you meant, blue? Anyway I haven't changed them yet as I think it would be even harder for people with color problems to view it correct. It's already hard but would be even harder if the blue shades got any closer. If you still want this really really bad tell me.
  • If we are getting close to upload I will need the following for both versions;
  • Name of the file
  • Description
  • Category/ies at commons

to be able to upload them at commons. Give me feedback, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 18:55, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en: That's it, its done I think :).
  • I meant green, the colour used for Western Allied-held territory (in this case UK-held, basically). Never mind that, though, we're good.
  • "World War II in Europe, 1942" and "World War II in Europe, 1942 (no labels)"
  • "Europe at the height of Axis success"?
  • The cats you can copy-paste from here.
Once its uploaded I'll global-replace the old PNG file with the new version.
I posted a request down below for a blank map of Europe at the outbreak of WWII, I think it can be helpful for a number of articles. If I'm not pushing too hard, I wonder if you could take a look? It oughtn't be a lot of effort? --DIREKTOR (TALK) 19:18, 19 March 2015 (UTC)

There are not very many pd svg maps of the US, but I found one to use for these but unfortunately failed to indicate where I found it and have since purged my history. Can anyone identify the source, and confirm if it is indeed PD? It is the same size as the locator maps, and shares id labels (RI_Atlantic_1_ for example), so I am guessing that someone else erred in marking their derivative work PD. If it was possible to do a search for "RI_Atlantic_1_" (and/or "NJ_Atlantic_1_") in all svg files it should be trivial to identify. The locator maps are traced back to File:Map of USA with state names.svg as a source, which does not use that id labeling scheme. Should I just relicense this as CCA and use a different PD map?

@Nastoshka: I have started to work on your requested svg map and I need your input to be able to continue. What I'm thinking about is how to make the map as legible as possible and what you need the map to show for your purpose.
  • Is the coloring of the different areas (Bahia, etc) important or is naming them enough?
  • Do you want the roads in the map, about the same as the one you have now?
  • Do you want rivers, lakes in the map?
  • Should we try to keep as much text (names) as possible outside the map and in a "legend" on the article page?
  • Any other ideas and information you want to share with me. --Goran tek-en (talk) 08:40, 31 March 2015 (UTC)
Hej @Goran tek-en: and thanks for taking care of my request. The answer to your questions are the following:
  • Yes, the colours are important and on wikivoyage we use standard ones. You can find them here. The colours are used in a template that works as a key for regions and colours (so on the contrary, naming is not so important). See an example on this page.
  • Roads and railways are optional. Usually we add them only if the result is clear and legible enough.
  • Yes please, lakes and rivers are important in a travel map. If it is possible add also their name with the standard font and colours that you can find on the same palette.
  • It is preferable that all the text in the current map is kept.

Tack så mycket en gång till  :) --Nastoshka (talk) 22:25, 31 March 2015 (UTC)

@Nastoshka: Thanks for that info, it's really important for I started to use the other template we use for maps. So next time you request a travel map for wikivoyage it's very important that you mention what template to use and why. If that is not mentioned we have no way to no that and then we will spend hours in vain.
I looked at your profile and whoooooh, how can you know that many languages, I'm impressed. --Goran tek-en (talk) 12:14, 1 April 2015 (UTC)
@Nastoshka: I now looked at the template and there are two issues with the chosen fonts;
  • The words, Airport And Train Station uses Blue Highway which to this page svg fonts is not an approved font.
  • The rest of the text uses DejaVu Sans Condensed. I run Ubuntu 14.04 and that font has another name with me, DejaVu Sans Semi-Condensed. What that will mean when the file is rendered at Wikimedia I can't say for sure. I will try to keep the original name but it can give some problems regarding that I don't really know how the text will flow and spread out.
  • If you have anything to do with that template or you know who does, it would be good to inform them about this. I would go for a font which is not included in "extra packages" or special in any other way. --Goran tek-en (talk) 12:44, 1 April 2015 (UTC)

@Nastoshka: Now you have drafts to look at. I show you three different and you will have to tell me which you want or something else.
I have some names in a legend, and as you use colors for the different areas I have also excluded the names from the map. To me this makes the map more legible. But you are the user of the map so it's up to you for most.

Hi @Goran tek-en:, you've crafted a very nice map. Thanks a lot! Perhaps the only thing missing is the label "Atlantic Ocean" for the ocean. Regarding the fonts used in the map, they were decided by en:voy long time ago, before I started to contribute to wikivoyage so I don't know much about them. However we're planning to review many maps and try to have some homogeneity among the different linguistic versions of wikivoyage. I'll talk about this problem with fonts. FYI I use Linux Mint and I have some problems with that font too. At moment you can use the ones you chose, since they are very similar to the standard fonts. Just one question: Could you add all texts (included "Northeast Brazil", the compass, and the key for kilometers) in a separate layer called "Labels"? When you'll have uploaded the map, I will need to modify it with Inkscape in order to create some sublayers to "Labels", one for the German translation, one for the Italian, one for the Swedish etc.. (Actually I'm a translator in real life and this is also one of my task on voys projects). Tell me if this is a problem. Thanks again! --Nastoshka (talk) 08:03, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

Pictogram voting comment.svg Comment When you redo the template please consider the other map templates that are used at Commons (and other places) and try to make the template so it also work for people with color blindness, it can be very hard sometimes. If I or any one else here at Commons can assist you with that just give us a notice.
As far as possible we try to upload svg files as plain-svg and not as an Inkscape-svg. Inkscape adds a lot of specific program information into the file which is not important, and all other vector programs do the same. A lot of people also edit svg files with text editor and then it's easier without all the program specific code.
In Inkscape when you use File/Save As or File/Save a Copy down in the right hand corner you choose how to save it. There is one choice, Plain SVG (*.svg). That one gives you as pure svg file you can get from the program, without editing the code manually. Before you save it it's always good to do File/Vaccum Defs which removes a lot of stuff which you are not using in the final version but have done during your work.
When you open a plain-svg file (you really don't know it is) you will find that it consists of different groups. Each layer in the original Inkscape file has become one group. So in my file, if you click on the legend you will get everything I had in that layer. The same with cities names, area names and so on. That makes it not so hard for you to do your work even when I upload it as plain-svg. I keep the original Inkscape file with me if any further work needs to be done but I always try to upload it as plain-svg. Sometimes I upload it as an Inkscape but that is very seldom and for a very good reason, extremely complex or other significant reason.
I don't know if you upload the different languages versions as separate files or as one and if you need the layer (Inkscape) information to make it work. Depending on that you should also upload them at Commons as plain-svg. I know that there is one way to work with different languages in one svg file. You add all and then you call on the language you need for a particular page, check here. The whole page is about translations in a svg-file. It just stroke me that you are a translator so probably you know much more then I about this. I'm sorry if I told you a lot you already know, that was not my purpose and if so, I'm sorry.
So get back to me on which version you want, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 10:16, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

@Goran tek-en:, Thanks a lot for all info you gave me. Yes, I knew almost all but it was kind of you. I did not know, for instance, about File/vacuum def. I'll do it when I upload a file created with svg. If you want an idea of how we work with svg-translation on wikivoyage take a look to this map. It's still imperfect: the coast line are unclear and the ferry paths are missing but I and the other user who drew the map are not graphists. (perhaps another work for you? :-) )
Reg. the maps, sorry I didn't understand I had to choose. However, I like the first one "all" and yes, please add the roads name. Thanks again. --Nastoshka (talk) 21:36, 2 April 2015 (UTC)

@Nastoshka: Now you can find it here Northeast Brazil 2, just let me know if you want something changed.
I did have a quick look at Northern Götaland travel map.svg and directly some things came to my attention.
  • Why do you translate Skåne but not Götaland?
  • Why do you translate/change some ö to o in cities names but not in all?
  • Göteborg is translated but not most of the other cities, are there no translation or what?
  • The scale must be really wrong, 0,5 km?
  • In the svg file you have so much unnecessary information etc around the shown page which makes the file much heavier than it needs to be, and it gives opportunity for problem to no use.
  • There is probably more but I didn't look any further.
  • If you think I can help you further in any way just contact me, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 19:25, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Maps for Los Santos[edit]

Hi, Map 1: We have this accurate map of Los Santos relief but It is not beautiful. I would like to have a new one shaded relief map to illustrate the relief of this province. Map 2 is a political map of Macaracas in Los Santos province. It is inaccurate but the official map is this. I'd like to replace it with the official one. And lastly, I would like to have this map to illustrate the political division of Tonosí district as well. I'll be grateful if someone with the skills to draw svg maps can help me.

PD: here are some maps from ANAM. Ant here are the political maps of the province. -- 12:00, 28 February 2015 (UTC)

Blank SVG map of Europe, for March - September 1939[edit]

A bunch. This is a basic map we can use for all sorts of purposes to highlight various countries in the period (as with other files in the series).
Requesting a blank SVG map of Europe for the period between March and September 1939, namely - Europe at the outbreak of World War II.
I don't think this one should be difficult: we already have a blank SVG map for the period up to March 1939 (see above), the only thing that's required is to account for two territorial changes:
So basically I'm asking for those elements (dismembered Czechoslovakia and the noth-eastern German border with Lithuania) from File:Europe 1942.svg to be incorporated into File:Blank map of Europe October 1938 - March 1939.svg. Thanks a lot, in advance. --DIREKTOR (TALK) 19:59, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
