Hello and thanks for translating this template into German! Please also translate the text in the three curly brackets, after the pipe (e.g. {{{event|the event}}}{{{event|der/die/das …}}}) in the 6th, 7th and 8th translation (I can also correct it if you say me the German word).

FEVE maps[edit]

Thanks for your response to my queries. I reached Santander from Ferrol (522,5 km) on My Google maps (https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit?mid=zEoWHo7PGBKA.kfsyCcK5oYo4). I wil continue drawing the lines on to Bilbao en then to Leon. (see File:FEVE map trial version.png (First try in 2008)) This will take a while due to the intensive curvature of the metergauge railways (I want to be very precise). I made a new Category:FEVE rail maps. I put a query to the Spanish community ([14]) but they dont seem to be very responsive. It can happen that there is nobody interested in local railway history (there is a very complicated railway history of local lines) and be prepared to draw maps.

I will concentrate on tracing the lines and later on then try again to convert the drawn lines to SVG. I seem to get stuck with Grass and Qgis. I can deinstall the software and try again or persevere the hard way. Idealy the projection should be conical for the long East-West map (around 43 degree North latitude). The closest I could find was EPSG::2062 (Madrid). The background map I want to keep as a separate layer so I can keep the option open to make an SVG map with only the FEVE railway lines to be filled in by other map makers. A lot of other elements have to be added in such as stations, tunnels bridges, connecting main railway lines etc, but this can be done in Inkscape.

In the meantime I want to check something. Can you export a KML file from my My Google Map? As I am logged in My Google Maps and its in my laptop memory I am not sure if other people have the same (export) options I see on my screen.Smiley.toerist (talk) 11:19, 25 January 2015 (UTC)
