Average map[edit]

Would anyone object to me replacing the dated world bank map with one showing countries above and below the world average gdp ppp per capita? Sbw01f (talk) 15:22, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

I'd suggest creating a new article for this. Maybe 2 seperate ones for nominal and PPP or both combined in one article. bsrboy 16:26, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Updated your maps[edit]

Hi there! I updated two of your maps: "World map showing Gini coefficient" and "World map showing developed, in transition, developing and least developed countries"

Justification:

-1st Map: Wikipedia's USA article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_states)

-2nd Map: Wikipedia's article about the economy of Mexico (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Economy_of_Mexico), and the source you used (https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/appendix/appendix-b.html) both state that Mexico is a "Developing Economy", as well as Wikipedia's Developing Country article (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Developing_nation).

Israel is red... there is no 60% people live in poverty in Israel.. check it again. it's something like 20% maybe.. 83.130.85.58 12:41, 9 May 2008 (UTC)

You are correct, thanks for pointing that out. Sbw01f 13:33, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Image:Polity data series map 2003.png[edit]

There is something wrong with Estonia, never before have I heard that Estonia is less democratic than Latvia (or Russia!). It should be the lightest colour, the same as for Finland and Lithuania. 90.191.200.134 17:39, 13 September 2008 (UTC)

The map is based on the source, which does say that Estonia is less democratic than Russia and Latvia (unless I made a mistake, I'll double check.) Sbw01f (talk) 23:32, 18 September 2008 (UTC)

Image:SuicideRates.PNG[edit]

Hi, I like this map and it is linked in en:major depressive disorder, currently a featured article candidate. I was wondering whether the colours could be rearranged into some sort of spectrum - red is ususally severe, so would shades of red through pink or orange be better? The colour relationship to severity isn't obvious when you look at it. Casliber (talk) 05:23, 20 October 2008 (UTC)


Great Work![edit]

Hello,

Great work with your maps. I'm writing to ask if I could use your maps as illustrations in an academic research paper I'm writing. I know that they are copyrighted under open source but I need to ask anyway. I would also like to cite you as a source in my reference section so I need a last name and first initial if you wouldn't mind. Hope to hear from you. Again, great work!

Respectfully,


A. Poincot

Go right ahead. Sbw01f (talk) 14:12, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

hello, in you GDP maps are the amounts on the left actually in thousands? or are they shortened to? It may seem like a sort of dumb-founded question but i apologize. Im just curious.

Thank You![edit]

This work is great and adds a lot to many articles. Keep it up!

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, Dwrcan!

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.

Please, update this map[edit]

Percent poverty world map.png

Unless update it for not to contradict the article itself (see the "population living under poverty line" list), since Argentina's population under poverty line according to national standards is 13,9% of the population (I myself updated the list with second semester of 2009 data of 13.2, but you can see the previous version if you want), far from the 20%-30% of the map. Thank you in advance. 190.48.121.237 05:53, 27 July 2010 (UTC)

Index of Economic Freedom[edit]

Index of Economic Freedom : I have transferred the 2010 map to a separate 2010 file, and reverted to the 2009 map in the 2009 file. So your work is preserved, and each file has the right title. Baronnet (talk) 10:03, 19 January 2011 (UTC)
