I love maps, looking at them, making them, studying them so it was only natural that I'd start making maps on Wikipedia. Here are the ones I've done so far:

re: Territorial evolution of Poland - map - errors in Memel/Klaipeda region Good observation. Please report this to the 1) person who created the image 2) image talk page 3) WT:POLAND 4) talk page of article on Territorial changes of Poland. Hopefully this will result in alerting someone who can fix it - I don't edit images, I am afraid, not my skill set. --Piotr Konieczny aka Prokonsul Piotrus| reply here 05:07, 28 August 2019 (UTC)

Hello, The initial map of Poland's changing boundaries is wonderful.

There is one problem that I noticed, which is not directly related to Poland, but is still relevant and can be easily fixed.

this is the error in the depiction of the "Memelgebiet". This region is shown as part of Germany (Weimar and Nazi) through WW II, but in fact, it was Allied administered after the Versailles Treaty (1919) and was then taken over by Lithuania in 1923, see: Then, in April 1939, the area was "returned to the Reich" after a Diktat by Nazi Germany, see: Thus it remained during WW II, and in 1945, this area was annexed by the USSR along with the so-called "Kaliningrad Oblast". So the 1919, 1923, and 1939 maps (and any intermediate ones) should be edited to show this region accurately. Thank you for your consideration. Jtelser (talk) 13:09, 26 August 2019 (UTC)
