Update request[edit]


If you have the time, can you update these two maps you uploaded, some day (hopefully not in the too distant future :)), because South Sudan is missing and they are not up to date; or change their names by adding a fixed year besides the names of these maps, reflecting the latest update long ago?

File:Meisterwerke des mündlichen und immateriellen Erbes der Menschheit.png
File:Meisterwerke des mündlichen und immateriellen Erbes der Menschheit.svg

and also:

File:Masterpieces of Intangible Heritage.png

I am adding South Sudan (as well as Montenegro and other possible missing updates) in the PNG maps in Category:Maps needing South Sudan political boundaries and then remove this category after updating them. There were close to 1100 maps since I started to update these files, now it is reduced to 800 maps, but there is a long way to go.

Unfortunately I don't know how to edit SVG maps myself, that is why I asked you.

Kindest regards.

Maphobbyist (talk) 20:33, 9 March 2018 (UTC)

Can you add South Sudan whose official language at the national level is only English, and also add the Berber language for Moroccco as an official language besides Arabic (just like Algeria) in File:Karte der Amtssprachen und Nationalsprachen in Afrika.png you uploaded? Please see the sources.
Can you update File:Israel Railway Map.png (because the Netivot-Beersheba and the Haifa-Beit She'an railway lines were completed and opened to service in late 2015)?
Kindest regards.
Maphobbyist (talk) 16:28, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
I reply would be nice. So I can move further on these requests. Maphobbyist (talk) 07:56, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
I'm on vacation and I currently don't have access to the computer with which I'm doing the map works. But to give you an answer in advance:
Chumwa (talk) 09:00, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
Ooops. I am sorry for my impertinence. When no reply was made, I wanted to make one last try, before moving on. The File:Meisterwerke des mündlichen und immateriellen Erbes der Menschheit.png and File:Meisterwerke des mündlichen und immateriellen Erbes der Menschheit.svg are good historical reference. Maybe the year it was last updated can be added beside their titles with a name change. Thank you very much for your reply. Maphobbyist (talk) 09:19, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
The two maps are adjusted now. Feel free to make the file renamings. --Chumwa (talk) 20:40, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
Thank you for the updates. I have requested a simple name change for the two files by adding the year 2005 beside their titles. Kindest regards. Maphobbyist (talk) 22:57, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

Geneva tramway Map[edit]

Since 09 april 2018, the route 18 (and some route 12 services) terminus are Bachet-de-Pesay and not longer Carouge-Bachet. Lyon-St-Clair (talk) 09:36, 8 May 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for the hint! The map is updated now. --Chumwa (talk) 03:59, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

Map of the Territorial Waters of the Pacific Ocean[edit]

Hello, I have seen that your map has errors, regarding the EEZ of Peru, because although you have used this map as a source, in which you have created, you do not see the updates of those limits. I would like you to make the corrections so that your map will be very useful. I leave some maps to be useful in your modifications.

Best regards. --Edubucher (talk) 22:14, 30 August 2018 (UTC)

I can't see the point. What's the problem with the map I've used? --Chumwa (talk) 22:31, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
That it is not updated, in the map of B1mbo the EEZ of Peru is shown correctly, but in your map it is not. You must see it carefully and you will see that both do not show the same.--Edubucher (talk) 22:42, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
Here I leave an image, in an explanatory way of the error that I found on your map. Thank you in advance for making the corrections of the case. Image Image, Thank you --Edubucher (talk) 23:03, 30 August 2018 (UTC)
This should be fixed now. Thanks for the explanation! --Chumwa (talk) 05:11, 31 August 2018 (UTC)

Can you update File:Israel Railway Map.png (because the Karmiel railway line was completed and opened to service in 2017) like the updated File:Israeli-Palestinian Railways.svg?

Please see the sources:
w:Railway to Karmiel

Kindest regards.

Can you update File:Israel Railway Map.png, because the Jerusalem-Tel-Aviv railway line has been completed and opened to service in October 2018, and also add the Karmiel railway line which was completed and opened to service in 2017? The File:Israeli-Palestinian Railways.svg provides the latest updates and sources. Your map, like all your maps, is a good map and deserves to be updated.
Kindest regards.

Hi Chumwa,

Mekka-Medina high-speed railway line update request[edit]


Can you update File:Rail transport map of Saudi Arabia - DE.png, File:Rail transport map of Saudi Arabia.png, File:خريطة سكك الحديد السعودية.png? The Mekka-Medina high-speed railway line was opened to service on Tuesday 25 September 2018.

Please see the sources:

Kindest regards.

Maphobbyist (talk) 05:46, 27 September 2018 (UTC)

The German and English versions are updated now. With the Arabian version I've the problem that I can't find it anymore. But I'm quite sure that our Arabian Wikipedians will be able to update the map too - especially when you consider that the topic concerns cocnretely themselve. --Chumwa (talk) 19:21, 2 October 2018 (UTC)

File:Lower Lusatia location map.png[edit]

Hallo Maximilian! Könntest du mir für diese sowie die Oberlausitz-Karte evtl. die svg-Dateien zuschicken? Ich würde da gerne zumindest Spree und Neiße einbauen, damit man sich ein bisschen besser orientieren kann. Vielen Dank und Grüße, j.budissin+/- 10:09, 1 October 2018 (UTC)

Ich bin mir nicht sicher, ob du mit der Vorlage glücklich wirst: das ist typischer OSM-Verhau in einer Größe von über 17 MB (komprimiert). Außerdem könnte ich die die Vorlage nur als ai-Datei zur Verfügung stellen (den Export nach svg möchte ich bei diesem Teil gar nicht erst wagen...). Wenn Du also die ai-Datei wirklich haben willst, schick mir eine WikiMail. Aber aus meiner Sicht wäre es erheblich einfacher die Flüsse als Transparenzlayer mit einem Multiply-Operator über die png-Karte zu legen. --Chumwa (talk) 17:49, 1 October 2018 (UTC)
Ok, dann schau ich mir das mal an. Danke erstmal! --j.budissin+/- 12:27, 4 October 2018 (UTC)


Hello! I tried to transcribe the wandwritten legend of this map, but I’m sure it needs correction. Would you take a look, please, and correct as needed? -- Tuválkin 17:21, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

Done. The character elements to build up the map key are very interesting! --Chumwa (talk) 18:13, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

Eisenbahnen Südosteuropa[edit]

Hallo Maximilian! Weil mir gerade das Update für die Südosteuropa-Bahnkarte über den Weg gelaufen ist, wollte ich nur darauf hinweisen, dass seit diesem Sommer wieder regelmäßiger Personenverkehr nach Bihać in Bosnien besteht. Schöne Grüße, j.budissin+/- 15:53, 31 October 2018 (UTC)

Prima - danke Dir! Ist jetzt eingearbeitet. --Chumwa (talk) 20:43, 4 November 2018 (UTC)


How do I get to have galleries like those listed in User:Chumwa/OgreBot? I wanted to keep an eye on numismatic uploads in a way similar to this. --Donald Trung 『徵國單』 (No Fake News 💬) (WikiProject Numismatics 💴) (Articles 📚) 13:06, 13 November 2018 (UTC)

Map of the municipalities and districts of Greenland[edit]

Dear Chumwa, as a contributor to the Dutch Wikipedia I am writing an article on the Hiawatha crater which was discovered in Greenland in what I understand to be Avannaata municipality. The Dutch Wikipedia seems to be outdated on this, as it refers to the region as Qaasuitsup. According to the articles on the English Wikipedia, the new municipalities were created on the first of January, this year. I wanted to use this location map by NorthNorthWest (ping) but noticed how the borders don't match with the information we have on the Dutch Wikipedia. NordNordWest said he based the borders on your File:Map of the municipalities and districts of Greenland.jpg.

Could you point me to a source that says that new municipalities were created on January 1, 2018? I haven't been able to find information on the matter. NunaGIS still uses the supposedly old names for the municipalities like Qaasuitsup here, here and here. Thank you for your time. Maartenschrijft (talk) 17:58, 24 November 2018 (UTC)

A quick Google search shows these results from which I'm thinking you're looking for: info, map 1, map 2. --Chumwa (talk) 23:26, 24 November 2018 (UTC)
Well that was easy. I guess I focussed too much on NunaGIS. Thanks! Maartenschrijft (talk) 03:36, 25 November 2018 (UTC)

File:Strasbourg - Straßenbahn - Netzplan.png[edit]

The extension of tram D to Kehl Rathaus via Hochschule/Läger opened on Friday. You might want to add that on the map. Regards --Metrophil (talk) 13:44, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for the info! --Chumwa (talk) 07:56, 4 December 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick update! --Metrophil (talk) 12:40, 15 December 2018 (UTC)

Manchester Metrolink[edit]

Hi Chumwa, hope you are well. There will be some changes to the Manchester Metrolink from 13 January 2019 and so I was wondering if you would please be able to update the map at File:Manchester Metrolink - Schemaplan.png. The new map as published by Metrolink can be found here. The main changes are:

  • New zonal system introduced
  • No more numbered lines
  • MediaCityUK - Etihad Campus line (orange) is now extended to Ashton
  • East Didsbury - Rochdale line (light green) is now two lines and the colours are pink and brown

Thanks, Delsion23 (talk) 19:16, 7 January 2019 (UTC)

Thanks for the info. Unfurtunately the new zonal system breaks the design a little bit... --Chumwa (talk) 09:02, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
I think it looks fantastic, thanks :) A couple of points, the pink and brown line colours are the wrong way round, and just to note that the orange line will be extended to Ashton from 28 Jan. Thanks again. Delsion23 (talk) 13:09, 19 January 2019 (UTC)
I'm sorry for this carelessness. I'ts corrected now. --Chumwa (talk) 10:13, 20 January 2019 (UTC)
Thanks again, it looks great! DelUsion23 (talk) 10:50, 20 January 2019 (UTC)

Vector version?[edit]

Hello there,

Do you by any chance have a vector version of the Manchester Metrolink map?

The reason is that a full rail map for Greater Manchester (like this) is missing on Commons; such a file would make it easier to create one.

Many thanks

--RaviC (talk) 00:24, 12 February 2019 (UTC)

I don't have a full rail map for Greater Manchester. So I can't provide a svg file for it. --Chumwa (talk) 22:53, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Route Map[edit]

Can we use Indian map for rail route? It's necessary to credit Indian map image holder.
