More detail is available on my Wikipedia user page. Here is my gallery. Between this account and my file upload bot I have uploaded over 5,000 images (mostly maps).

Commons projects[edit]

Historical maps[edit]

I've been scanning maps of Warren County, Indiana from an 1877 county atlas and creating geographic overlays for use with Google Earth.

Road maps[edit]

Maps showing the routes of Indiana State Roads are in progress.

Town photos[edit]

Currently I'm working toward adding at least one photograph for every town in Vermilion County, Illinois, to be included in their Wikipedia articles.

Township maps[edit]

I have generated county-level maps for every township in the state of Indiana, highlighting the location of each township within its county; these are being added to the township articles in Wikipedia, most of which I also created. These are SVGs that are produced with custom-written MapScript applications and freely-available TIGER data. I am also generating such maps for Iowa and Kansas townships.

In consideration of the great number of excellent maps you've created and uploaded to Commons, particularly those for highways and townships, I here award you the Tireless Contributor Barnstar! Huwmanbeing 14;29, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
