Venezuela map[edit]

Chile (orthographic projection).svg
CHL orthographic.svg

Hi!, well, the source where I took the limits are different (Natural Earth), the file corresponds to the conventions colors and has not been discussed about replacing the maps with darker colors. --Addicted04 (talk) 22:49, 6 September 2011 (UTC)

Hello. I think that the colours in the news maps looks better, see the dark map of Brazil, do you can see The Bahamas, the Falkland Islands or the Galápagos Islands?, the Lesser Antilles are not visibles, even with a giant image (maybe becuase the coast are in the same color of the ocean). The the latitudinal and longitudinal lines are in the same color in both maps (#00000077) and the light gray in the land contrast with the dark coasts, I think that the colors may be discussed in the WikiProject Maps or the Projet:Cartographie. --Addicted04 (talk) 21:13, 25 October 2011 (UTC)
I change the Brazil maps by Chile maps in the right. See the maps, is exactly the same map but the colours are differents. Can you see the islands mentioned above? Even New Zealand at the left is less visible. In addition, the country does not contrast with the land. See the maps at 1000px (old map, new map). --Addicted04 (talk) 20:16, 28 October 2011 (UTC)
The islands are there, but its borders is on white. Ok, what shade of gray is better?, the current is #E0E0E0 and the current borders are on #646464. What do you think to change the land to #AAAAAA? Do you have another colour?. --Addicted04 (talk) 22:13, 31 October 2011 (UTC)
The layers can be unlocked clicking the padlock in yellow, on the bottom of the Inskcape window.

There are the colours of the dark maps:

   #b9b9b9 Land.
   #346733 Territory.
   #24d000 Claimed territory.

The colours of the new maps:

   #e0e0e0 Land.
   #336733 Territory.
   #73CD73 Claimed territory.

See the land colours:

   #666666.
   #aaaaaa too dark (is not a good idea).
   #b9b9b9 dark maps.
   #cdcdcd I propose (middle grey).
   #e0e0e0 new maps.

thumb

The new (fantastically named, if I say so myself) map with cdcdcd seems much better to me, much more substance. I think that b9b9b9 with darker black borders would be a good touch, but I don't feel as strongly now that there's a clearer difference between land and water. I'd suggest again that you upload over the current maps, as there is no point having a whole collection of maps which have been superseded just lying around commons. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 17:47, 2 November 2011 (UTC)
I'm changing the colors, thanks for helping to improve the maps. --Addicted04 (talk) 23:36, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
I reverted the changes, I think that is better to leave the maps as they are, I will upload new maps with dark colors, and the maps with light colors will leave them there; we must to talk about them in the discussion of each article until it matures the proposal. In Argentina's article in the Spanish Wikipedia the light colors were accepted, I suggest you discuss the use of maps in each article separately. --Addicted04 (talk) 23:55, 11 November 2011 (UTC)
That's dissapointing. I'm not discussing 204+ maps on 204+ different articles, that's gross inefficiency. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 01:37, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Tip: Categorizing images[edit]

Hello, Chipmunkdavis!

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.

Map of Samalia[edit]

Hello. Viewing the criteria used for the map of Mali and other examples you mentioned, could you modify the map of Somalia? I hope your answer. MauriManya (talk) 22:51, 5 May 2012 (UTC)

I could try, but I probably couldn't do it well at all. Azawad was an easy cross cut across a tiny point (and as can be seen in that file's history I still didn't get it exactly right). Furthermore, I don't know to what extent Somaliland controls the territory it claims. Puntland, which claims to be Somalia, controls some of Somaliland's claimed territory (as far as I know). Chipmunkdavis (talk) 12:42, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Maybe you could take as a guide this map [1]. Do you think? MauriManya (talk) 23:51, 6 May 2012 (UTC)
Wow, that map has changed since I last looked at it. The Somaliland line is very jagged, and I'm not sure I can pull that off with my rather mundane inkscape powers, but I'll play around on my computer to at least try. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 12:14, 7 May 2012 (UTC)

File names[edit]

Yo no pienso en Nada más que en ubicar los archivos que ya se encontraban en File:Eritrea (Africa orthographic projection).svg y File:Eritrea (Africa orthographic projection).svg. Debido a que faltaban en la lista de Template:Grey-green orthographic projections maps. Si tiene algún otro reclamo injustificado tendrá que hacérselo al editor que incluyo África en el nombre del archivo, NO a mí. En ningún momento renombre archivo alguno. La próxima vez modere su tono de reclamo.--Ninrouter (talk) 01:16, 31 May 2012 (UTC)

Schengen_Area.svg[edit]

Hello, can you exclude Romania Bulgaria and Cyprus from the map File:Schengen_Area.svg please. (because I don't know how to edit svg files :) --Camoka4 (talk) 14:59, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

United Nations Members.svg[edit]

I am not satisfied with this picture, Taiwan is not the part of China and we are hoping to join the UN with the name of ROC.--Sponge123 (talk) 10:57, 19 September 2012 (UTC)

I am from Taiwan you see.

The UN map reflects the UN viewpoint. Otherwise there are quite a few areas that aren't under the control of claimant states that would need to be noted. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 22:39, 20 September 2012 (UTC)

Orthographic projection: Papua[edit]

Hi, I see that you have removed en:Papua, Indonesia, i.e. the western half of New Guinea island, from File:Asia (orthographic projection).svg, to which it had recently been added. This means that Papua is once again omitted from all the maps in this group. If Papua does not belong on the Asia map, please could you add it to File:Oceania (orthographic projection).svg, since en:Papua New Guinea (which is the eastern half of the same island) is on this map. --Redrose64 (talk) 11:55, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

Oceania is a very fluid concept. The orthographic picture you point to is the geopolitical one. You'll find the Papua and more in File:Oceania, broad (orthographic projection).svg, for example. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 13:17, 25 September 2012 (UTC)

United Nations Members.svg[edit]

Okay, I know that UN thinks that China has Taiwan.But is NOT! I can get along with this if you change this picture.--Sponge123 (talk) 04:25, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

The picture is based on what the UN thinks, rather than the situation on the ground. Otherwise places like Palestine and Somaliland would also be excluded. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 22:04, 5 November 2012 (UTC)

Re: UN Map[edit]

Hello, Listen, to the truth, I'm a Taiwanese. I know Chinese and Taiwan history. R.O.C. is once the create member of the UN, but this dosen't mean that Taiwan (R.O.C.) is considered PRC(Hello, PRC! Not China!).I may say that PRC is the Mainland China, but Taiwan is not the part of PRC. It has never been PRC's territory. You can't connect the dots of the other country that maybe has national identity disputes.This is a global respect.

I'm gonna change the UN picture, no matter what.

A correction is needed in your File:Recognition of Israel.svg map[edit]

Hi! In your map File:Recognition of Israel.svg, Iran needs to be colored in pink, because from the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948 until the Iranian Revolution and the fall of the Pahlavi dynasty in 1979, Iran did recognize Israel and in addition had diplomatic relations.

Thank you, this is now done. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 16:41, 29 November 2012 (UTC)

Colours of Eritrea (Africa orthographic projection).svg[edit]

Hello Chipmunkdavis,

I have noticed your changes in this map, and I will revert it for the second - and I hope, the last - time, for the following reasons:

  1. Before you change a file, it is more respectful to ask to the file maker, to find a consensus. You didn't do that.
  2. The colours are now following the conventions for orthographic maps
  3. The darker colours are better in your point of view. But not mine: I think the dark green is more visible if the background is clear, and that's the same for dark boundaries.
  4. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Please do not change version again. Regards, Sémhur (talk) 17:35, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

The original colours, which you first uploaded, are the ones which are actually used. See the various maps at Grey-green orthographic projections maps. The en.wiki page clearly doesn't show the actual conventions. There is a huge contrast between the green and the grey either way, but the washed out background does not contrast well with water. And by you, as the original wasn't broken, I don't know why you were fixing it. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 07:44, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
If you look in Category:SVG locator maps of countries of Africa (green and grey globe scheme), you can see there are both grey and light-grey scheme colours. So "the ones" is not exists. If you think that the en.wiki page is not good, feel free to launch a talk there. For the contrast, one more time it's your pov, but not mine. And about the "original wasn't broken", yes it was. And it's because it was (South Sudan border to add, and some mistakes to correct) that I took the opportunity to change the colours. If I did not have to change it, I would have left it as is. Sémhur (talk) 10:02, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
The majority in that category are of the normal grey colour schemes. Furthermore, quite often the light ones in that category have darker grey counterparts that for some reason aren't included that cateogry. File:Angola (orthographic projection).svg and File:Democratic Republic of the Congo (orthographic projection).svg for example. That the borders in some areas are seriously in need of an update does not mean that the colours should be changed as well. The border issue actually exists in quite a few maps, and at the moment I take File:Algeria (orthographic projection).svg as the standard for that angle, as it seems to be more or less up to date. Tangentially, do you know why many of the light grey maps are over 1MB in size? Chipmunkdavis (talk) 12:39, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
I don't know why quite few maps are not included in the category. If you find other ones, please categorise them. I am agree that a lot of maps have to be cleaned up, but Algeria (orthographic projection).svg is not the better one: the corrected borders are more white than others, Lebanon is missing, some lakes or part of lakes are missing, the "3D" shadow is missing. It's better to take the Eritrean map for standard Clin, and it's weight is lighter too (143 ko, of course in the light-grey version). And, one more thing about the contrast: as the light-grey maps have dark coastlines, the limit of the lands is still visible. And small islands are more visible than in the dark-grey version. I hope that my arguments have convinced you and that this little dispute will stops there. About the >1 Mo size of some maps, I don't know. I suppose Addicted04 had generated them automatically, and not cleaned them after. Sémhur (talk) 16:27, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
I had a long discussion with Addicted04 actually, just above and on their page, also discussing the colours. We'd come to a mutual agreement which solved our problems as the time, but they decided it wasn't a good idea at that ended that. The Algeria svg is the best I've found that comes from the same base map, which means the borders can easily be transferred between maps. I haven't created these maps from scratch. My weight comment wasn't about your Eritrean map specifically, it was just odd to see all the MB files. The black borders work at a large map, but they're hardly perceptible in smaller scales, which these maps are often used at. I don't think lakes should be as prominent as you've made them (which seems to be the same as islands). The Congo river for example, looks like a huge gash through the DRC, and I've not seen another map portray rivers quite so prominently before. It works for islands though, and you are right that the small islands are immensely more visible, which is a very valuable asset. Hmm. Perhaps read over the conversation with Addicted04 above, and tell me your thoughts? I'm going to see if I can get opinions and ideas from people I know with poorer vision than myself. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 17:13, 14 December 2012 (UTC)
I read your conversation with Addicted04, but I'm still not convinced by your arguments. I think the dark gray borders stand out better in small size than white ones. And the map of Algeria is not the best: about lakes, it shows only half of Lake Victoria! It should display all or nothing, but not only half ... By cons, you're right about the Congo River, it was disproportionate. I removed it in the uploaded map, which is in the light-grey version, but I ask you not to change it again. Thank you, Sémhur (talk) 20:26, 16 December 2012 (UTC)
Lake Victoria is there in the code, so the entities are fine, someone just hid it when they added South Sudan. The entire body of land stands out less in the lighter grey, along with borders. Removing one river does not fix the entire river issue, the rest remain overly prominent. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 04:26, 17 December 2012 (UTC)

So you've been warned about edit warring twice already, and now have the nerve to continue and threaten someone else with a report on it? No-one has said this is wikipedia, but dispute resolution procedures remain, and shifting the focus of your global edit war is not a way to edit anywhere. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 00:09, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
Any report has been closed, the arguments of your friends are not sustainable on COMMONS, only in EN Wikipedia, but if you continue with this, then I will report you for "third time" as you said, probably you do not know how COMMONS works. --Giggette (talk) 00:21, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
I don't have friends arguing on this topic in en.wikipedia, everything I've said here has been based completely on commons. You'd be reporting me for the first time, not the third. At no point have you even tried discussing this on the talkpage. Keep in mind that edit warring goes both ways, and that you have a past history of it on this topic. Consider discussion as an alternative? Chipmunkdavis (talk) 09:11, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

List of subnational monarchs[edit]

Hello! According to this article List of current constituent African monarchs these maps should be modified File:World Monarchies.png File:World Monarchies.svg, you could do it? MauriManya (talk) 22:31, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

I can do the svg easily enough. As there's no information on which locality they are recognised to rule in, I'll just have to colour the entire state in for many. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 20:24, 9 May 2013 (UTC)
Svg updated, quite a big update. It's quite hard to get all that on a map. I feel that perhaps the subnational circles should be smaller than those representing states. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 23:42, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

World homosexuality laws map[edit]

Hello. I see that you are interested in maps. I was wondering if you would be interested in modifying this map [3] (or creating a new map), so that propaganda laws and anti-discrimination laws can also be included such as this map [4]. The green colour for de jure penalty that is de facto not enforced is also problematic. Such a map would be very useful and could be used in non-English wikipedia's as well. Cavann (talk) 01:19, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

That's a lot of information for just one map. I suggest asking others on the talkpage of that map. I don't understand how the ILGA have ended up with different colours for metropolitan France and French Guiana though. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 17:36, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
Maybe we can just add "propaganda" laws then? That would be easy but I also want to change the colour scheme, starting with black for capital punishment, red for heavy penalty. Yellow would be the "least serious" one (for propaganda laws).Cavann (talk) 17:51, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
What source are you using for "propaganda laws"? It seems unnecessary for a map about whether or not homosexuality is allowed, so if you want this it should be made in a new map. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 20:46, 25 May 2013 (UTC)
ILGA map I linked before. The only country seems to be Russia. So adding those laws wouldn't be too much of an issue. And I want the green colour gone cause of colour blindness issues and that it is a rather "positive" colour. I came to your page cause I thought you were interested in making maps. Cavann (talk) 21:43, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
I am interested in maps, however unfortunately I don't have much time at the moment, and it looks difficult to implement the laws on the map in an effective manner. I agree with you on the colouring issues. I suggest again taking this to a wider page; there are far far better mapmakers than myself. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 22:54, 26 May 2013 (UTC)
What do you think of this colour scheme: Commons:Graphic_Lab/Map_workshop#LGBT_rights_in_the_world ? Cavann (talk) 00:25, 27 May 2013 (UTC)
If you intend to keep the legal colours, black could very easily be confused with dark blue. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 00:51, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
What would be a good alternative? Cavann (talk) 02:00, 29 May 2013 (UTC)
I suggest less detail, for example combining both imprisonment categories rather than dividing them arbitrarily. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 22:00, 30 May 2013 (UTC)
It's not random, it's how the source divides it. Any other suggestions? Cavann (talk) 01:28, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
Does the source give a reason for the division? We don't have to follow it exactly. If you want the map made, you'll just have to find a colour scheme that works. Perhaps use a third range of colours. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 15:20, 7 June 2013 (UTC)
So, green is out (and neutral). Lower wavelengths [5] is for recognition. Higher wavelengths (yellow, orange, red) are for persecution. '1 year' and '30 years' are quite different, so dividing jail sentences make sense to me. How about this? Cavann (talk) 22:32, 8 June 2013 (UTC)
   Laws restricting freedom of expression and association
   Imprisonment without precise indication of the length / unclear / other
   Imprisonment up to 14 years
   Imprisonment from 14 years to a life-long sentence
   Death penalty


Actually the easiest thing seems to be use the same colour format except the green colour.

   Laws restricting freedom of expression and association
   Imprisonment without precise indication of the length / unclear / other
   Imprisonment up to 14 years
   Imprisonment from 14 years to a life-long sentence
   Up to death (ring = local judges)


That's definitely an improvement. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 08:42, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Aztec map[edit]

Thank you, well, first I did not still resist starting a discussion on the talkpage because this discussion started here weeks ago, and not only on the talkpage of this map, and it was finally closed there and on Commons:Administrators' noticeboard, and yes the only differente of these maps is the dominance between two areas, that's all. Both maps have sources but some more reliable sources than others, only the Wikipedias should choose to use for the articles. And this map was firstly created than the other. --Giggette (talk) 01:52, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Supposedly it is the only difference, the map was created basing from the following sources.
1.- [6] by the Department of History by Ian Mladjov, University of Michigan.
2.- Aztec Warfare: Imperial Expansion and Political Control by Ross Hassig, University of Oklahoma Press, according a user with his map on COMMONS in use
3.- [7] Encyclopædia Britannica 1994
4.- As such more sources [8], [9], [10], [11], [12], [13], [14], [15], [16]
The template must have the two versions without distinction. --Giggette (talk) 19:01, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Orthographic maps[edit]

Hi ! Well, I don't make politics while mapping. ;) I use Natural Earth's data to make orthographic projections. I guess they chose to recognize some countries and not some others. --Flappiefh (talk) 21:08, 4 August 2013 (UTC)

EEZ redux[edit]

Is this the deletion request that you seek? Linked image is here . Cheers! Ellin Beltz (talk) 19:08, 5 March 2014 (UTC)

No, the previous page wasn't deleted via a request, but via a very simple alert on the page that there was a copyright violation. It is a now deleted upload of Alexyflemming that was almost identical to File:Iskele Long Beach AirBNB.png. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 19:50, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
Someone tagged that image with a license needed. I found the source at this site. I've nommed some of his other images. Thanks for keeping your eyes out! Ellin Beltz (talk) 18:17, 6 March 2014 (UTC)
User:Ellin Beltz there was an English language version of that site with that picture somewhere, which explicitly stated in the T&C that all pictures were copyrighted. In his previous upload, Alexyflemming had claimed that the picture was released under public domain citing the website which explicitly said it wasn't. It is the link to the T&C that I was hoping someone could find. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 13:11, 7 March 2014 (UTC)
Another admin suggested perhaps you were looking for this? Ellin Beltz (talk) 19:14, 9 March 2014 (UTC)
Yeah that's it, thanks. Chipmunkdavis (talk) 18:42, 10 March 2014 (UTC)
