  • World map of population: It would be nice to have a world map similar to this, where the size of the country shows the population instead of geographical size. //moralist 19:29, 12 March 2008 (UTC)

  • World map of Mitsubishi elevators: I want a map, where all countries which have Mitsubishi elevators are red, and all other countries are gray. -- 14:59, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
    • It might be extremely difficult to compile a list of countries that have Mitsubishi elevators. With so many companies/institutions using their elevators since the 1930s, I doubt anyone could come up with that list. If you have a list, I'm sure we could create one for you easily. -- JoannaSerah (talk) 00:15, 27 October 2011 (UTC)

This picture on this site is a striking illustration of the decrease of the Earth's axial tilt. It shows the Sun's light on the floor of the San Petronio Basilica in Bologne, Italy, on the day of the winter solstice. The light was exactly at the center more than two centuries ago; a shift, due to the decrease of the axial tilt, is clearly visible today. I can see a few uses for that picture or an equivalent one. I have imported a few images on Commons, but I feel I must ask for help for this one, especially for the question of rights. Thank you.

The image is File:MalePeacockSpider.jpg and I have now added it to the articles on Maratus as well as Maratus volans. I think I picked a good one-- and I hope you like it as well!

Human body[edit]

  • Can't find any pictures of (functional or pathologic) livedo reticularis and livedo racemosa, conditions difficult to explain without illustrations. 06:55, 1 September 2013 (UTC)
  • There is a lack of imagery / video of human female defecation, as well as a lack of video of female urination. I think these would be useful in respective articles on various projects.
    • As Wikimedia's servers are mainly hosted in the US, there may be legal issues which have prevented such images being uploaded. I don't know US law that well, but in the UK depictions of scatological and urological acts considered to be of a sexual nature (which most depictions which feature genitalia could be construed as) are illegal. See this article, for example (scatological acts were illegal prior to the act referred to in this article). I'm not sure if Wikimedia would have exemption from any such laws on the grounds of such content being educational. A suitable illustration of female urination already exists: File:Female_urination_-_on_white_-_1.jpg. --NCL 1401522 (talk) 23:48, 20 June 2015 (UTC)

  • en:Kimani Maruge. The oldest person to start primary school—he enrolled in the first grade on January 12, 2004, aged 84. He was the image of the United Nations to promote universal free education.--Macondo (talk) 14:20, 17 April 2015 (UTC)



  • An image like this one except for individual states. I can find the images, except without the blue/red overlay. If someone knows how to do it, I could provide the links. Contact on talk. Thanks, Griffinofwales (talk) 16:38, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
    My two cents, I think the colors should be lighter so that the state and district borders are easier to see. Sorry for editing your post. Qzekrom (talk) 15:54, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

  • 2011 TOHOKU EARTHQUAKE AND FUKUSHIMA NUCLEAR ACCIDENTS- lots of good images already but we do need anything concerning the activities of TEPCO electric company or indeed any electric company operations in Japan. Power company efforts are the one area we have NO images of! Even images not of the 2011 situation can be used if needed...Fancy-cats-are-happy-cats (talk) 18:38, 20 March 2011 (UTC)

Check once that. Or ask in the Greek Forum to help you--Sanandros (talk) 21:43, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

Photo from the Russian State Archive[edit]

For my article on the Russian preparliament during the Russian revolutionary period I would be greatful if someone could get hold of this picture and upload it into Commons. It is in the public domain both in Russia (as it was taken before the October Revolution) and in the US as it is from 1917. Thank you in advance!--Rowanwindwhistler (talk) 12:12, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

  • A free/GPL image of jet engine snow blower. Examples of unknown copyright status include [13] and [14]. Photo is for relevant Wikipedia articles. Zarnivop (talk) 00:19, 4 October 2014 (UTC)
  • A free image of the Discworld-esque flat earth - you know, the world balanced on four elephants standing on the back of a turtle. Happy-melon 10:13, 5 May 2008 (UTC)
    • This image apparently comes from a book by Camille Flammarion (possibly the same one as the famous Flammarion woodcut), and is presumably PD. We could probably use the poster (per Bridgeman v. Corel), but it would be better to find the original source. This one looks even nicer, but has no information about the source. There's another very similar image here — it's not quite identical, but the details are similar enough that they're probably based on the same original. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 22:27, 13 November 2008 (UTC)
    • Googling for the caption suggests that the Flammarion book the first image is from may actually be Histoire du ciel. Also found yet another version of the second image here. —Ilmari Karonen (talk) 22:51, 13 November 2008 (UTC)

  • Bonjour,

pour illustrer le chapitre des mésaventures du Chat de Montchat est-il possible de réaliser puis d'importer sur Commons une photo du Chat qui se trouve dans une niche à l'angle de la route de Genas et de la rue de l'Église à Montchat (Lyon 3eme, France) ?
Les deux photos existantes et qui seraient parfaites ne sont pas libres de droit la première comme la seconde.
Avec tous mes remerciements.--Fguinard 16:08, 4 August 2014 (UTC)
