SVG maps[edit]

Hi, where do you get the data for your maps, and how do you put it into Inkscape? I noticed that you have municipal boundaries on several and I am interested in making SVG municipal boundary maps for cities in Texas. -- Drumguy8800 05:33, 22 April 2007 (UTC)

Hello 25or6to4!

Thank you for providing images to Wikimedia Commons. Please keep in mind that images uploaded to Commons should be useful to all users of Wikimedia projects. This is possible only if the images can be found by other people.

To allow others to find the images you uploaded here, the images should be in some place that can be found by navigating the category structure. This means that you should put the images into appropriate topic pages, categories, optionally galleries, or both of them (see Commons:Categories). To find good categories for your images, the CommonSense tool may help.

You can find a convenient overview of your uploaded files in this gallery.

The important point is that the images should be placed in the general structure somewhere. There are a large number of completely unsorted images on Commons right now. If you would like to help to place some of those images where they can be found, please do!

Thank you. BotMultichill (talk) 12:33, 26 June 2008 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Afrikaans | العربية | беларуская (тарашкевіца)‎ | català | čeština | dansk | Deutsch | Deutsch (Sie-Form)‎ | Ελληνικά | English | Esperanto | español | فارسی | suomi | français | galego | עברית | magyar | íslenska | italiano | 日本語 | ქართული | 한국어 | македонски | മലയാളം | Plattdüütsch | Nederlands | norsk bokmål | polski | português | português do Brasil | română | русский | slovenčina | slovenščina | српски / srpski | svenska | українська | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | 中文(简体)‎ | 中文(繁體)‎ | +/−


Hello, 25or6to4!

Tip: Add categories to your images

Thanks a lot for contributing to the Wikimedia Commons! Here's a tip to make your uploads more useful: Why not add some categories to describe them? This will help more people to find and use them.

Here's how:

1) If you're using the UploadWizard, you can add categories to each file when you describe it. Just click "more options" for the file and add the categories which make sense:

Uploadwizard-categories.png

2) You can also pick the file from your list of uploads, edit the file description page, and manually add the category code at the end of the page.

[[Category:Category name]]

For example, if you are uploading a diagram showing the orbits of comets, you add the following code:

[[Category:Astronomical diagrams]]
[[Category:Comets]]

This will make the diagram show up in the categories "Astronomical diagrams" and "Comets".

When picking categories, try to choose a specific category ("Astronomical diagrams") over a generic one ("Illustrations"). Pro-tip: The CommonSense tool can help you find the best category for your image.

Thanks again for your uploads! More information about categorization can be found in Commons:Categories, and don't hesitate to leave a note on the help desk.

File:I-694 (MN) map.svg[edit]

For this map, you missed that part of the highway that is concurrent with Interstate 94. It is still considered part of 694. --HoennMaster (talk) 16:30, 3 February 2009 (UTC)

File:I-540 (NC) map.svg[edit]

File:I-540 (NC) map.svg needs updating. The route now extends 4 miles west an about 7 miles further east. See [1] which is the Google Maps version which shows the current routing. Thanks! --Jayron32 (talk) 21:14, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

The text issue[edit]

Hey. The text issue appears to have something to do with the position of the text object in the SVG file. Three of the labels on the initial version of File:NY Route 361 map.svg were messed up, so I checked out the source. It ends up that all three text objects were at the very bottom of the code. I moved them up to where the rest of the text objects were in the code and reuploaded, and it cleared the issue up. I have no idea why the position of the object in the code makes a difference, but apparently it does. I tried to do a fix on File:NJ 79 map.svg by moving the group that the text was in farther up in the code; it didn't work. I'll keep looking into it. This is certainly an annoying bug, if only for the fact that we have to reupload to see if we fixed it (since it renders fine in Inkscape and Firefox). --TMF Let's Go Mets - Stats 06:33, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Tried a couple more things, as you probably see from the NJ 79 map's file history. From what I can guess, if text is below a group in the code, Wiki's SVG renderer will mess it up. That's the only explanation/conclusion I can come up with based on the NJ 79 and NY 361 maps. On NY 361, the three objects that borked initially were below my grouped shields while the rest of the text was above them; everything straightened out when I moved the three objects above the groups. This is definitely an issue on Wikimedia's end (considering it looks fine when viewed directly in Firefox and Inkscape) regarding their SVG-to-PNG renderer/converter; I'd post something on the village pump. --TMF Let's Go Mets - Stats 07:01, 8 August 2009 (UTC)
Well...heh...maybe not. I tweaked and changed some settings regarding the text in Inkscape and a text editor and finally got it to work right. =) I'll find another map with borked text and try to replicate my results. If it was something as simple as a couple of numbers, though, it doesn't explain why the text messed up on NY 361's map earlier since the code that was moved up higher was the same exact code that was buggy before. Methinks the renderer itself is buggy. =) --TMF Let's Go Mets - Stats 07:28, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Fixed File:Texas 3 map.svg. What I did:

  • Ungrouped the individual text objects (apparently they each had their own group)
  • Changed part of the text using the second tab of Inkscape's text and font tool (Text -> Text and font) to force Inkscape to regenerate the properties of the text
  • Changed the text back and saved
  • Removed all of the coordinates after the first one in the text's <tspan> tags in a text editor.

That's enough debugging for me today. =) --TMF Let's Go Mets - Stats 07:49, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Thanks for the help so far! I went ahead and tried these steps on file:Texas 4 map.svg. Half worked, half didn't. What I noticed was that the ones that did work ("Brownsville" and "Cameron") had numbered x and y coordinates, while the rest (Port Isabel, Los Fresnos, and the legend labels) had x and y coordinates of zero. Will also point you to this discussion, if you hadn't seen it already. 25or6to4 (talk) 19:59, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

Commonist licenses[edit]

Dear 25or6to4,

As you might know Wikimedia is currently migrating from the GFDL to cc-by-sa-3.0. Wikimedia Commons is also migrating and we're down to less than 8000 files (started with about 1,8M files) . Unfortunatly this number keeps growing because Commonist contains outdated license templates. You appear to be running Commonist, could you please change the following lines in your license.txt?

{{self2|GFDL|cc-by-sa-2.5,2.0,1.0}} should be changed to {{Self|GFDL|Cc-by-sa-3.0,2.5,2.0,1.0}}
{{self2|GFDL|cc-by-2.5}} should be changed to {{self|GFDL|cc-by-3.0}}
{{self|cc-by-sa-2.5}} should be changed to {{self|cc-by-sa-3.0}}

Can I also fix the images you have already uploaded by adding {{cc-by-sa-3.0}}?

Thank you very much, Multichill (talk) 12:19, 5 September 2009 (UTC)

Picture of the Year voting round 1 open[edit]

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2012 Picture of the Year competition is now open. We're interested in your opinion as to which images qualify to be the Picture of the Year for 2012. Voting is open to established Wikimedia users who meet the following criteria:

  1. Users must have an account, at any Wikimedia project, which was registered before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC].
  2. This user account must have more than 75 edits on any single Wikimedia project before Tue, 01 Jan 2013 00:00:00 +0000 [UTC]. Please check your account eligibility at the POTY 2012 Contest Eligibility tool.
  3. Users must vote with an account meeting the above requirements either on Commons or another SUL-related Wikimedia project (for other Wikimedia projects, the account must be attached to the user's Commons account through SUL).

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. From professional animal and plant shots to breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historically relevant images, images portraying the world's best architecture, maps, emblems, diagrams created with the most modern technology, and impressive human portraits, Commons features pictures of all flavors.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topic categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you can vote for as many images as you like. The first round category winners and the top ten overall will then make it to the final. In the final round, when a limited number of images are left, you must decide on the one image that you want to become the Picture of the Year.

To see the candidate images just go to the POTY 2012 page on Wikimedia Commons

Wikimedia Commons celebrates our featured images of 2012 with this contest. Your votes decide the Picture of the Year, so remember to vote in the first round by January 30, 2013.

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

Picture of the Year 2013 R1 Announcement[edit]

Round 1 of Picture of the Year 2013 is open![edit]

2012 Picture of the Year: A pair of European Bee-eaters in Ariège, France.

Dear Wikimedians,

Wikimedia Commons is happy to announce that the 2013 Picture of the Year competition is now open. This year will be the eighth edition of the annual Wikimedia Commons photo competition, which recognizes exceptional contributions by users on Wikimedia Commons. Wikimedia users are invited to vote for their favorite images featured on Commons during the last year (2013) to produce a single Picture of the Year.

Hundreds of images that have been rated Featured Pictures by the international Wikimedia Commons community in the past year are all entered in this competition. These images include professional animal and plant shots, breathtaking panoramas and skylines, restorations of historical images, photographs portraying the world's best architecture, impressive human portraits, and so much more.

For your convenience, we have sorted the images into topical categories. Two rounds of voting will be held: In the first round, you may vote for as many images as you like. The top 30 overall and the most popular image in each category will continue to the final. In the final round, you may vote for just one image to become the Picture of the Year.

Round 1 will end on . Click here to learn more and vote »

Thanks,
the Wikimedia Commons Picture of the Year committee

I-580 in Nevada was officially extended recently but the map shows the old designation still. It now extends down to Carson City. Perhaps you are already aware; any chance we could get an updated map on the page? Thanks!--Bodo920 (talk) 19:10, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Autopatrol given[edit]

Hello. I just wanted to let you know that I have granted autopatrol rights to your account; the reason for this is that I believe you are sufficiently trustworthy and experienced to have your contributions automatically sighted. This will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to help users watching Recent changes or Recent uploads to find unproductive edits amidst the productive ones. Thank you. ~ Nahid Talk 20:50, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
