Location maps of Sri Lanka[edit]

en:Template:Location map Sri Lanka
en:Module:Location map/data/Sri Lanka Northern Province
(more modules to be created)
  1. Replace the topography detail of the existing relief map (2nd file), with that of the more accurate and detailed NASA map (3rd file). (recolouring will be needed)
  2. Sharpen the provincial and district borders with those as shown on files 4 and 5 file 6. These two files are samples only, and are to be deleted.
  3. Fix borders on the relief map (top area - 2nd file).
  4. Make provincial borders thicker than district borders.
  5. Remove the two rivers and reservoirs from the first two maps (see also), and
If needed, you may visit this page to test the accuracy of the country's borders. The placemark's coordinates are very accurate (taken from Google Earth), and shows the extreme ends of the country. Thanks! Rehman 05:33, 25 March 2016 (UTC)

Sri Lanka adm location map.svg and Sri Lanka rel location map.svg are available now. NNW 21:20, 18 May 2016 (UTC)

Thank you, NNW! Looks great! Just a few changes, would you be able to remove all the rivers and waterbodies from both new maps, and make the 2nd level (district) borders more lighter (lighter grey)? And instead of just trashing the river details which I just mentioned, would you be able to upload it to a completely new svg file using the topographic background, and including only rivers and 1st level/province borders, but no waterbodies. This will be very useful for the river articles which I am currently working on. Thank you so much for your help. Cheers, Rehman 01:30, 21 May 2016 (UTC)
Deleting all lakes? Some rivers flow through lakes. Sri Lanka adm location map.svg and Sri Lanka rel location map.svg are showing only 1st level borders now, Sri Lanka adm-2 location map.svg and Sri Lanka rel-2 location map.svg 2nd level borders, too, with these borders with a thiner line. All these maps are part of a set of maps which all have to look the same. I can upload further files but they won't have file names related to location maps but you can use them as alternative maps for the template maps. NNW 16:58, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

@NNW: Sorry for the late reply. Please ignore my previous comment. Instead, would you be able to replace File:Sri Lanka location map.svg with File:Sri Lanka adm-2 location map.svg, but removing all the rivers while retaining the water bodies? This is because the current default map:

  • does not have the waterbodies marked properly
  • has no distinction between provinces and district borders
  • and has less sharper borders when compared to the map you created.

Removal of rivers is because:

  • the current map doesn't have rivers
  • not all rivers are mapped
  • having rivers will confuse viewers for borders, and looks too cluttered as well.

Similarly, the same applies to the relief maps (File:Sri Lanka relief location map.jpg and File:Sri Lanka rel location map.svg), but to add district borders as well. Please let me know if this is possible. Thank you, Rehman 14:00, 7 July 2016 (UTC)

Map labels from Norwegian to English[edit]

It would be nice to have the labels for this map translated to English. They seem pretty simple, but it may be a challenge to alter the existing map, so making a replacement might be better. --JesseW (talk) 16:17, 31 August 2016 (UTC)

JesseW are you able to provide the translations? Offnfopt(talk) 14:45, 7 November 2016 (UTC)

Offnfopt, sadly, I am not -- I do not speak Norwegian. I just came across the map, and thought it worth mentioning it somewhere it would be more likely to get done. JesseW (talk) 04:56, 12 November 2016 (UTC)
Offnfopt, JesseW I understand Norwegian, if there is anything you want me to translate for you, please ping me, Huldra (talk) 22:33, 27 December 2016 (UTC)
Huldra, yes please! Here is the text that I see on the map; please fill in the English column:
Norwegian English
Det Hettittisk Rike (literally: "the Hittite State")
Mykensk Kulturomrade (literally: "the Mycenaean Cultural area")
Byer som ble ødelagt Cities which were destroyed
Byer som overlevde Cities which survived
Libyere (literally: "people from"
Qadesh (Kadesj)

Ok, try the above, Huldra (talk) 00:26, 28 December 2016 (UTC)

Thanks! Offnfopt, it looks like we have translations now -- would you be able to make a English-language version of the map with them? JesseW (talk) 06:03, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

Sri Lankan province and district location maps[edit]

Currently only two of the nine provinces and one of the twenty five districts have location maps. It would be great if the remainder also had location maps. I appreciate this is a big ask but anything would be appreciated.--Obi2canibe (talk) 12:24, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
Graphist opinion(s)
That request relates to island wide maps - my request is for province/district specific maps.--Obi2canibe (talk) 13:14, 8 September 2016 (UTC)
Obi2canibe and Rehman This may not answer all your map needs but there is now a way of using and annotating Open Street Maps, which can provide a different way of showing map data without each map having to be made specially. It won't integrate into info-boxes and uses a template at en:template:OSM Location map which might need porting across to non-en wiki's. But as an example, I have added a map at en:Sabaragamuwa Province to show an example of what is possible. It could also be used to add red locator dots etc to show specific features. (Unfortunately the Open Street Map version available does not currently show Sri Lanka district boundaries}. RobinLeicester (talk) 21:31, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
Thanks RobinLeicester, that's great news! Rehman 14:52, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
