Request: Hi there. I tried to upload a map of Brazil showing the football competition venues for the 2016 Summer Olympics, File:Football venues for the 2016 Summer Olympics.svg, but it was different from File:Rio de Janeiro venues for the 2016 Summer Olympics.svg.

Request: There is a problem with the format of the text, could someone fix it? Felipe Menegaz 19:14, 9 April 2010 (UTC)

Graphist opinion(s):

What's the problem? How do you want the text to look like? ZooFari 23:05, 9 April 2010 (UTC)
Well, the text does not appear on Commons as it appears on Inkscape. Felipe Menegaz 22:19, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
Use Arial for best results. The text won't ever look like the appearance in Inkscape, unless you want to upload a non-modifiable text version (see here. Blame the Wiki software :( ZooFari 22:33, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
That is not true. It will show up like it does in Inkscape if you use one of the accepted SVG fonts (Arial is not an accepted font so it won't show up right on Commons). --Yarnalgo (talk) 00:39, 11 April 2010 (UTC)
If you can show me one SVG example, you'll be my new best friend. ZooFari 01:14, 11 April 2010 (UTC)

Translating SVG map files in Italian[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved

Hi, i'm an italian user interested in translating mpas in my own language. I yet done a trial with

Tectonic map Mediterranean IT.svg

, but source and author didn't work well, i probably made a mistake in compiling format or in choosing licence. I was in trouble in uploading files using "derivativeFX", so i tried with "main upload form".

Should someone explain me the right way to upload files like theese? Thanks.Ciaurlec (talk) 17:59, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

It was a simple wikicode error that caused the author and source fields to not work. Namely, in the description field, the {{it}} template was not closed properly. See the changes I made here. Huntster (t @ c) 22:44, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

North Africa (orthographic projection)[edit]

Yes check.svg Resolved
Notice This request also appear in Wikipedia as North Africa (orthographic projection).

Article(s): North_Africa, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, Egypt,

Request: Please create a North Africa centered orthographic projection so I can create/improuve the orthographic projections for the related states. --Flad (talk) 15:16, 9 January 2010 (UTC)

Graphist opinion:

Not sure if you're still interested in this, but I've done some new orthographic projections, centred on Libya (i.e. more specifically 'North Africa'). The countries are grouped by their 3-letter ISO codes, so it's a fairly simple matter of changing fill and stroke after searching for the country code in the XML editor. Gringer (talk) 02:42, 26 September 2010 (UTC)
That what i was asking for, thanks a lot. --Flad (talk) 13:39, 10 December 2010 (UTC)

Request: move inset to actual position. Map doesn't really help show where Okinawa is. The prefecture is highlighted on the inset only, and there's nothing to indicate where the inset is located relative to the main map. If you don't already know where Okinawa is, this map isn't really going to help... Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 15:34, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

I have made a draft now;
Give me feedback on it. --Goran tek-en (talk) 20:14, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Unusual but thanks for your hard work! Let me make a mockup of what I have in mind and send it.--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 03:07, 15 February 2014 (UTC)
@Kintetsubuffalo: I will do one version more like your base map but there are some questions;
  • There is a color scheme which is as a "standard" and I have used that in my draft. Do you want colors like yours for some special reason?
  • I didn't put in lat long as I can't see any reason to have them there. Do you specifically want them?
  • If I don't put in an enlarged map of Okinawa it's hard to tell what it looks like. Do you not want an enlarged section?
Get back to me on this, thanks. --Goran tek-en (talk) 13:47, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
I really like your version and prefer it for other things! But the standard for Japanese prefectural --Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 09:18, 17 February 2014 (UTC)locator maps is the one above, with those colors and the lat long lines. For a --Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 09:18, 17 February 2014 (UTC)locator map such as this, the details don't need to be great. But I do want you to upload your superior map for other uses, too!--Kintetsubuffalo (talk) 09:18, 17 February 2014 (UTC)
@Kintetsubuffalo: Now you can look at a draft and give me feedback on it.
  • Do you want me to upload it over the existing one when it's done?
Eventually I will need the following for the other zoomed version;
  • Name of the file
  • Description
  • Category/ies
to be able to upload it as a new file. --Goran tek-en (talk) 11:46, 17 February 2014 (UTC)

Redrawing of Mass Rapid Transit (Singapore) system map[edit]

Request: Is it possible for you to redraw this map so that it is not a derivative work of this website? (Note that there are some new train lines, so you will have to refer to the website for the latest version of the system.) — Cheers, JackLee talk 16:11, 21 June 2010 (UTC)

Anybody able to help? — Cheers, JackLee talk 12:22, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
