File:Knowledge of Spanish EU map.svg[edit]

The 5 to 9% coloring is not sufficiently distinct from the less than 5% coloring. AnonMoos (talk) 21:38, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Cheers for pointing it out. I was working on it anyway so I have changed them both (and made them more distinct than the 10-19%). Alphathon™ (talk) 22:22, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

File:Knowledge of German EU map.svg[edit]

Hey! Thank you for your contribution to this map. Since you're good with SVG-graphics I kindly ask you to correct some mistakes. First, Lithuania and Latvia have both much higher percentages of German speakers, than indicated by the map. Second, the source doesn't provide any data for Bosnia-Herzegovina or Switzerland so these should be deleted. The Swiss data is also wrong because most people are not able to communicate in German in the French speaking and Italian speaking parts.

Kind regards

Aaker (talk) 20:35, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Hello again and thank you for the fast reply. The data for all the Knowledge of X EU maps come from this Eurobarometer survey [1]. If I remember the Swiss source correctly it actually indicates percentages lower than 50% in the French and and Italian speaking parts. Anyway, mixing of different kinds of surveys produces a garbled image of reality. Aaker (talk) 22:40, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Hello, Alphathon!

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.

First French Empire[edit]

Thank you for your work on [File:First_French_Empire_1812.svg]! One thing: it seems to be missing the Septinsular Republic (Corfu etc.). I wonder if you could add that at some point? Thanks, --Macrakis (talk) 00:52, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Yes, I think that's right, a satellite state. Thanks! --Macrakis (talk) 02:08, 24 April 2012 (UTC)

Hello! For the same map of the French Empire in 1812, The San Marino Republic is missing (not a part of the Kingdom of Italy). An other 'state' can be add: the principauty of Erfurt, in the mid-Germany, which was a personnal state for Napoléon, not into the Confederation of the Rhine (so a border line should be drawn). This principauty was not a part of the French Empire (not in dark purple color), unlike what many maps propose in historical atlases. In the same order, the principauty of Andorre was effectivly part of the French empire in 1812, as you represent it (some maps on WikiCommon are false about it, like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Map-Rheinbund-1812.png, which also localises the principauty of Erfurt ). Thanks!--Jipécé34 (talk) 13:14, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Help needed[edit]

Hello! I wanted to ask you for help. Can you please make map like this for this state? I want to replace all different maps with default blank ones like this, but i dont know how to make it... :( Thanks in advance! --WhiteWriter speaks 15:11, 1 July 2012 (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.

One more thing, don't suppose you could possibly upload a separate file showing the borders of Congress Poland, please. Many thanks! TRAJAN 117 (talk) 22:07, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

Since it was technically an independent state I have added it to the main file with a dashed border similar to how Kosovo and Northern Cyprus are displayed on the modern map. For other maps it can either be simply deleted or left in, depending on the purpose of the map. I've also uploaded a file of it highlighted in green with the Russian Empire in light green.

Request for Flemish region Map[edit]

Hi Alphathon,

you made for Wales (also England, N-Ireland and Scotland) a map.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Wales_in_the_UK_and_Europe.svg

Is it possible for you to do the same with Flanders? A simular map with the green and grey color?

So a map of Flanders in Europe using the same style.

There is only this old version http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Location_map_for_Flanders_in_Europe.PNG

many thanks Klodde (talk) 01:01, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

That shouldn't be too difficult, so I don't see why not. I assume you mean Flanders in dark green with the French/Walloon region (I can't remember what it's called) and Brussels in light green. Would you want a "zoomed in" map of Belgium like that of the British Isles on the Scotland/England/N. Ireland/Wales maps or just leave it showing it within Europe? Alphathon /'æɫfə.θɒn/ (talk) 01:12, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
When I read your text I realised that in fact there shoud be 3 different maps. It's too difficult to explain, so I made 3 examples.
  • http://oi44.tinypic.com/30hsh1c.jpg shows "Vlaams Gewest" (Flemish Region), 1 of the 3 Regions in Belgium, (you have also Walloon Region and Brussels-Capital Region), it is a government responsible for Flanders without Brussels and without Wallonia.
  • http://oi41.tinypic.com/x6c66h.jpg shows "Vlaanderen" Flanders geographical, no politics, there you don't need to show Belgium, don't need to show Wallonia, don't need to show Brussels
  • http://oi40.tinypic.com/2emoi9z.jpg shows "Vlaamse Gemeenschap", Flemish Community, in fact it is responsible for language rights, so for all places where they speak dutch it includes Brussels, you have also the French Community (where they speak French) what includes Brussels and Wallonia without the Germanspeaking part of Wallonia, and then you have also the German speaking community (where they speak German)
Be aware, very important
  • For all maps, there is a little part of Flanders that don't border Flanders, called Voeren, always also colored darkgreen, don't forget to show it
  • For Flemish Region, don't forget to show the borders of Brussels, there is also a little part of Wallonia that doesn't border Wallonia called Comines-Warneton, always light green, don't forget to show it and it's border, don't show the borders of the German speaking part, it is included by the
Walloon region
  • For Flemish Community, don't forget to show the borders of Brussels, there is also a little part of Wallonia that doesn't border Wallonia called Comines-Warneton, always light green, don't forget to show it and it's border, then also don't forget to show the German speaking part and it's borders right (it doesn't include the French Community, also always colored light green
I hope you understand my explainings?, many thanks if you can realise.
Klodde (talk) 14:30, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
I updated, I made a little error and adapted what was wrong, 1 of the maps have to show the borders of the German speaking part, another map may not show the borders of the Germand speaking part
Klodde (talk) 14:42, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
I think I understand. Basically I need to make the following:
  • Map of Flanders (including Brussels) within Europe, which doesn't show the rest of Belgium
  • Map of the Flemish community: Flanders (including Brussels, possibly coloured with diagonal lines since Brussels is also the French community capital) within Europe. Does show the rest of Belgium (light green).
  • Map of the Flemish region: Flanders, excluding Brussels. Does show the rest of Belgium (light green). German-speaking community is part of Wallonia.
While I'm at it I might as well do maps for the other regions, so that would be:
  • Wallonia within Europe; doesn't show the rest of Belgium
  • Walloon region: Wallonia within Europe; does show the rest of Belgium; does include German-speaking community
  • French-speaking community: Wallonia within Europe; does show the rest of Belgium; Brussels highlighted as capital; does not include German-speaking community
  • German speaking community; rest of Belgium in light green
  • Brussels-Capital region; shows rest of Belgium in light green; German-speaking community part of Walloon region
Am I correct? Alphathon /'æɫfə.θɒn/ (talk) 17:34, 27 July 2013 (UTC)

┌─────────┘

Yes, you are correct, just attention: borders of German speaking part not visible in maps of Walloon region and Flemish region, the rest is clear I think.

Hi Alphaton, is it possible for you to make things larger, I added you're maps on many pages, but on the English wiki someone putted back an old map, he said the following

Smaller problems are that the new maps show everything smaller; Brussels is barely visible, and the Wallonia map was reverted partly for this and partly to match Flanders. Oreo Priest talk 00:32, 2 August 2013 (UTC)

He putted the old maps see below back because in you're new maps Brussels is to little

So my question, can you make the square with the map of Belgium larger in the 3 following maps (see below), so that Flanders, Walloon and Brussels will be bigger in the detailed map compared to european map. I hope that you understand what I mean.

Large Cities?[edit]

Hi Alphaton, I refer to the map file:Netherlands Map.svg. The legend reads that a black dot indicates a "Large City". That may be true in mainland Netherlands, but Kralendijk (pop. 12,000), Oranjestad (pop. 1,000) and The Bottom (pop. 500) are certainly not "Large Cities". Perhaps should they be marked with much smaller black dots? The same goes for the German language version of the map. Greetings,--Ratzer (talk) 05:46, 27 August 2013 (UTC)

Blank map of Europe[edit]

Hello, Alphathon, I have many requests to you regarding File:Blank map of Europe.svg. Can you please add the other break-away regions besides Kosovo and Northern Cyprus (Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Transnistria and Nagorno-Karabakh). Can you also add a disputed Crimea connected to Russia by it's path over the one connected to Ukraine as that would be needed for maps representing law. If possible, can you make Crimea's shape on the map more accurate as it would make it a lot easier to depict the disputed borders. I also wanted to ask you to make the relations of the Faroe Islands and Denmark same as the Isle of Man and the United Kingdom, they should be connected at first but at the same time they should be able to be separated. I also wanted to ask you to add Lake Peipus, Võrtsjärv, Rybinsk Reservoir, some lakes in Karelia, Lake Van, Lake Tuz, some other smaller lakes of Turkey, Lake Sevan, Lake Balaton as well as any other lakes you, yourself, think should be added. I know this is a lot to do so take your time. Feel free to update the map step by step (i.e. first you can add the break-away regions and worry about the lakes later). Thank you! --Leftcry (talk) 00:16, 11 February 2015 (UTC)

I'll certainly give it a look if I have some time.
I'm not sure quite what you mean about the accuracy of Crimea. Are you perhaps referring to the depiction of Syvash? Unfortunately, the thickness of the borders (which surround the whole country, including the coastline) kind of obscures the Arabat Spit.
I'm only familiar with lakes Peipus and Balaton, which should absolutely be on there. I can't comment on the others since I'm not really familiar with them.
Alphathon /'æɫfə.θɒn/ (talk) 16:57, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for your response! As for Crimea, the only reason I asked for more accuracy was because I thought it may be harder for you to depict the disputed border, otherwise Crimea looks fine as it is. I'll provide some maps with the unfamiliar to you lakes, so that you can see where they are (if you want a more accurate depiction then I would suggest looking at Google Maps or other internet maps). --Leftcry (talk) 19:39, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
Thank you for all your edits to the map so far. There are just a few small issues. You seem to have confused the de-facto en:Nagorno-Karabakh Republic with the former en:Nagorno-Karabakh Autonomous Oblast. I also wanted to ask you to connect the paths of the territories of Transnistria controlled by Moldova to the path of Moldova as that would make it a lot easier when creating maps depicting law. Can you also make the relationship of the disputed Crimea to Russia the same as the relationship of Kaliningrad Oblast and Russia as that would again make it a lot easier when creating images depicting law. I also wanted to ask you to try to tweak Georgia as some of its territory doesn't seem very accurate (especially its border with Russia), you can use File:Georgia location map.svg to help you. Thank you! --Leftcry (talk) 23:23, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
You're right about Nagorno-Karabakh, and it has now been fixed.
The path of Moldova includes all of Transnistria; if you or anyone else wants to make a map which doesn't show a particular part of the disputed territory all you need to do is delete it. The same is true of other countries and their disputed territories (e.g. Ukraine still includes Crimea as well as the new disputed path, Serbia's path includes Kosovo etc). Did you mean group them together (like Denmark etc)? That might prove tricky - a path can only be part of a single group so it would either have to be grouped with Transnistria or with Moldova, not both (and it could be argued either way which is preferable).
Georgia isn't really that bad considering its scale, but it could certainly use a touch-up.

I did mean group them together, sorry for not being clear. I think that the territories claimed by the breakaway republic but still controlled by the central government should grouped with the original country rather than the breakaway regions as that will be easier for maps depicting law. As for Georgia, I agree with you that it isn't too bad, but I do think that it's accuracy can be improved. --Leftcry (talk) 00:07, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

Fair enough. I disagree about the grouping of the Transnistria areas though - if one wants to make a map involving or concerning Transnistria then it really doesn't matter that they are grouped together, but it is easier to remove it all at once (Transnistria proper and the two other territories) if it is grouped. This map isn't just for creating maps with disputed territories on it, it is a general base map. I imagine it is far more common that they would be removed than needing to be grouped per controlling nation. Alphathon /'æɫfə.θɒn/ (talk) 00:15, 20 February 2015 (UTC)

I do agree with you on that. --Leftcry (talk) 00:20, 20 February 2015 (UTC)
Is it possible to maybe add Vatican City? --Leftcry (talk) 05:04, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
Absolutely. It should really be on there already. Alphathon /'æɫfə.θɒn/ (talk) 14:31, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
I think some islands in the Caspian sea should also be added. --Leftcry (talk) 04:24, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Can you also add Lake Urmia in Iran and some lakes in Iraq such as Lake Therthar, Lake Razazza and Lake Dukan as well assome other ones. --Leftcry (talk) 04:32, 24 February 2015 (UTC)
Since you added a lot of lakes in Russia, including those in the north, can you also add the ones in Murmansk Oblast as it isn't very consistent if you add the ones in Karelia but not the ones in Murmansk Oblast. Can you also fix the coast in the en:Gulf of Finland, especially the Russian coast cause it looks the most off. --Leftcry (talk) 04:46, 1 March 2015 (UTC)
