Thanks[edit]

  1. File:Euler diagram of triangle types.svg — Clever... AnonMoos (talk) 10:49, 20 April 2011 (UTC)
  2. re: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Comparison_disk_storage.svg Excellent, deft compact display of layered information! Thank you. Dcsutherland (talk) 13:19, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
  3. your http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Comparison_semiconductor_process_nodes.svg is another stunningly beautiful expression of information. Thank you so much for taking your time to put this together.
Thanks for your kind words — much appreciated! Cmglee (talk) 18:46, 17 November 2011 (UTC)

Hi There, I was interested in using your periodic table of elements graphic in a publication. Would that be possible? Thank you!

Thanks for asking — certainly! Could you please add the standard Wikimedia credit line below so that your readers can find its vector-graphics version, and also be aware of the discussion regarding its accuracy? Cheers, cmglee (talk) 00:10, 30 May 2016 (UTC)

File:Variance_visualisation.svg[edit]

Hi! I love your illustration of Standard Deviation. It made the concept make sense to me for the first time.

Thanks, glad to be of help! cmglee (talk) 02:06, 1 February 2016 (UTC)

Your image uploads[edit]

It is not a good idea to add photographer name into the filename. Credits are given in the image description ("Author"). Regards. Materialscientist (talk) 23:46, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Hi I note that you have renamed a large number of my and other contributors' uploads under this Commons:FR#reasons:
# Aim Examples (old name) Examples (new name)
3. Correct misleading names into accurate ones File:MY_CUTE_MOUSE.JPG
File:1BIGGest_nOSE_everS33n.JPG
File:Dutch_pet_rabbit.jpg
File:John_Doe_at_concert.jpg
I do not see how prefixing my ID makes it a misleading name. It is certainly not what the examples illustrate. Can you point me to a Wikimedia guideline stating that IDs are not allowed in filenames?
The issue is not credit but to keep the filenames unique. E.g. being a popular subject, there could be any number of images called File:London_Aquatics_Centre_interior.jpg while File:cmglee_London_Aquatics_Centre_interior.jpg is much more likely to be unique and would almost certainly not clash with an existing file.
cmglee (talk) 13:24, 29 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for bringing this up. The renames were proposed by user:BaldBoris and I agreed with him, but you are correct that this is not reflected in the renaming guidelines, and you can claim the files should be moved back. I'm looking into the relevant guidelines and will get back to this. Cheers. Materialscientist (talk) 23:00, 29 July 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for your understanding. As there's a more thorough discussion at Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard#ID_in_filenames_.2F_User:Materialscientist, let's continue there. cmglee (talk) 11:21, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, Scraimer; glad you find it useful! cmglee (talk) 11:22, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

hi, I tried to use this nice file at google.sites and it seems that svg files are not allowed therefore I uploaded the file at https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Phase_diagram_of_water_as_png.png but I am not sure if it was well referenced..... please let me know if it is ok, because I am rookie in this things of Cretive Commons License... — Preceding unsigned comment added by Joseasorrentino (talk • contribs) 16:54, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi @Joseasorrentino, It's ok, as long as you link back to the original page [1], though I think you could have just linked to a PNG automagically rendered to the size you want by using a URL similar to http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/0/08/Phase_diagram_of_water.svg/1234px-Phase_diagram_of_water.svg.png (replace 1234 with your preferred width in pixels). Cheers, cmglee (talk) 21:05, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Thanks Cmglee.... I did not found the way to link it before although I saw the reference to this rendered file.... I am now using the file you produced because the main idea is to give you the credit.... very nice plot... yours. Joseasorrentino

Hi @Joseasorrentino, Thanks for your kind words. If you could link me to the Google sites you're using it on, I'd love to see your work! cmglee (talk) 23:45, 24 May 2016 (UTC)

Dice Distribution[edit]

On File:Dice Distribution (bar).svg, could you remove the strange numbers on the left that don't line up with the values of the p.m.f.? And maybe move the fractions to the left axis? I would, but I can't get my Inkscape to do anything with it. Dicklyon (talk) 03:31, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

The numbers are not strange at all: they are probabilities in decimal representation (where the scale on the right is in fractions). They are useful to allow different distributions to be compared, as in File:Dice sum central limit theorem.svg. cmglee (talk) 08:58, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
But they're not being used for that, and multiples of 0.02 are strange when unrelated to anything useful. Dicklyon (talk) 19:42, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
Dicklyon, I don’t get what you’re talking about. The axis on the left is a completely normal decimal axis as used in any and all graphs. It is useful for the same reason and purpose as it is in all other graphs. The fractions are nice for the exact value, but the decimals are what give me the real feeling of magnitude. They should stay. — Timwi (talk) 23:11, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

File:MH370 map.svg[edit]

An excellent image, Cmglee. But, as my secondary school Geography teacher used to remind us (with tedious regularity): "a map isn't a map without a compass and a scale." I'm not sure you would necessarily agree with that statement. But - is there any chance of you adding a scale? (I think we can guess China is in the North). Many thanks. Martinevans123 (talk) 15:12, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for your feedback, Martinevans123. They are valid points for large-scale maps indeed. On maps covering a significant part of the world's surface, however, having a scale would be misleading, as different parts of the map have different scales (the usual problem of representing a spherical surface on a flat plane). I also think that this part of the world is well-known enough that the reader can surmise that north is up. Many other maps on Wikipedia and other sites do not indicate north unless the direction was unobvious or "up" wasn't north for some reason. cmglee (talk) 20:46, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. "I think we can guess China is in the North". I see we already have another contributor at that article. I thought your map was very clear. Martinevans123 (talk) 22:14, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Confusing homonym diagram.[edit]

Hello. The diagram you made https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Homograph_homophone_venn_diagram.svg is a bit confusing. I think it was a mistake to include synonyms in your diagram, as a homonym can never be a synonym. (Homonyms have different meanings by definition) I can see why you wanted to include synonym in your diagram, but it makes the whole thing quite confusing. For instance, it looks like heteronyms are not also homonyms, which is not the case. I think a better idea for a clearer diagram is to not include synonym at all, and instead nest everything under homonym.

I have many an example to show what I mean:

http://i.imgur.com/ITeQLCX.jpg

As you can see the diagram that I have made is not nearly as beautiful as yours. That is why I am contacting you instead of just replacing your diagram. Maybe if you have the time and willpower you can one day update your diagram.

Original rendition
Hello! Thanks for your note. I drew the graphic based on File:Homograph_homophone_venn_diagram.png which also has synonyms. I don't know enough about linguistics to make a judgement call or find appropriate reference. If you can get a consensus on the exact changes required from the English Wikipedia language reference desk, I'll upload a new version. Cheers, cmglee (talk) 23:25, 29 December 2014 (UTC)


Manhattanhenge[edit]

Cmglee - I am fascinated by the analysis you did visualizing location of sunrise and sunset at Manhattanhenge. I am trying to establish how close Greenwich Village/Meatpacking District's Gansevoort Street is aligned to the equinox. Have just discovered it is an old Native American trail and having lived in the area 15 years have always noticed the equinox sunsets each Spring and Fall. More detail here at Bolton's 1922 map but if you have any advice, I would appreciate it. I was a little confounded by the Earth System Research Laboratory website you linked to! Info use here w:Jackson Square Park WindingRoad (talk) 16:09, 29 March 2015 (UTC)WindingRoad

Thanks, WindingRoad. That's an interesting question! I took a screenshot of the area on Google Maps and pasted it in an image editor. I found that rotating it clockwise by 1 degree made Gansevoort St horizontal, so it would be most closely aligned on Mar 22, 2015 (solar declination = 0.84°) according to http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/gmd/grad/solcalc . Even better, the next street, Horatio St is almost exactly east-west, so it should exactly align during the equinox — though the trees may spoil the view! cmglee (talk) 19:41, 30 March 2015 (UTC)
Cmglee - thanks for doing that analysis, very helpful, very interesting. I just posted some pics I took before (believe it or not) i fully realized this was so close to the equinox! Unfortunately they are off by a few days, but I think you'll find them interesting, too!
Well done, WindingRoad. Excellent photos, especially the last one! cmglee (talk) 08:57, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Adjustment?[edit]

Could you adjust File:Ordnance Survey National Grid.svg to use a different landmark? It looks to me as if Nelson's Column, for example is slap on the square border, possibly edging over into the next square (TQ 30 80). Perhaps the nearby equestrian statue marking the site of Charing Cross would be suitable.

Rich Farmbrough, 07:06 17 January 2016 (GMT).

Hello, Rich. I like your choice of the statue as it's traditionally where distances to London are measured, as I just found out. However, its grid reference, TQ 30037 80373 still puts it at the edge of a square. I'll think about how I can better present it. Cheers, cmglee (talk) 15:47, 17 January 2016 (UTC)
P.S. This might sound silly, but I like "TRAFALGAR SQUARE" because "TQ" is hidden in it. I suppose I could also pick Buckingham Palace because it has "The Queen"!
I like the TQ/Trafalgar Square too, hadn't thought of "The Queen"! Rich Farmbrough, 22:58 18 January 2016 (GMT).
Thank "Q"!  ͡°  ͜১͡°

Interesting graphic! Thanks. I was wondering if the abundance distribution of the elements could be laid over their sources too? That is how much from where from what?

Thanks, I think it would be difficult to do so without cluttering up the table. Moreover, is it abundance in the Universe, Earth's crust, the human body, etc? Anyway, here are some diagrams you might be interested in:

3d Bubble Chart[edit]

Hi,

I am really interested to know the name of the program you used to create that 3d bubble chart of life expectancy for males vs females. Any support either in terms of the code or any other information is gretaly appreciated. Thanks. You can reach me at: stat4everman@gmail.com

John

Hi John, the program is a one-off Perl script embedded in the SVG file itself. If you open http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/b2/Comparison_gender_life_expectancy_CIA_factbook.svg in a text editor, from near line 4000 to the end of the file is an SVG comment ( <!-- --> ) containing the script. Extracting and running it generates the SVG file. I've since moved on to Python — see en:user:cmglee#animal_hearing_frequency_range.svg_.E2.98.8E_26_Oct_2014 — but if you've any questions about this script, just ask! Cheers, cmglee (talk) 13:23, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

I am very sorry for this deletion request. Honest.
It looks to me as if "GMG NETWORK ORG" was not careful when uploading this video to youtube.
Read the video description:

If "GMG NETWORK ORG" does not own the rights of the video,"GMG NETWORK ORG" can not release it under a creative commons license.
If it was released at some point under Creative Commons License, "GMG NETWORK ORG" forgot the attribution/source.
In both cases, we can not use the frame grab.
I am very very sorry. It is a valuable picture illustrating an idea, that makes the world a better place.
That is why am sad and sorry to request the deletion. But with the unknown original source, the image it self is a copy right risk.
I am very sorry.

File:Comparison optical telescope primary mirrors.svg[edit]

Hi, your graphic of the large primary mirrors is really well made and accurate. It lacks a little something though, the Five hundred meter Aperture Spherical Telescope (FAST) which China is building and will complete in 2016. I figure it won't be too difficult to add since it's just a curved line at the bottom. I don't know if it will even be relevant because it will maybe look like a straight line, but since it will be the largest telescope in the world, I think it has its place. Thank you and good job on your great graphics. --Piponwa (talk) 21:19, 11 May 2016 (UTC)

Hi @Piponwa, Thanks for bringing FAST to my attention. It's a radio telescope whereas the graphic is about optical telescopes. Arecibo was put in as a comparison because it is well-known. I'll keep it in mind if I decide to make one on radio telescopes. Cheers, cmglee (talk) 11:53, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Doing one on radio telescopes would definitely be cool, I feel like the more quality material there is, the more people are going to be excited about telescopes. Thanks for all that you do! --Piponwa (talk) 15:19, 14 May 2016 (UTC)

Good work[edit]

I've been looking through the SVG images you've created and they're very impressive. I actually saw the comparison of bridges one in the past and was surprised SVGs could do that. As if the technical details weren't cool enough, the way you implemented them makes them really useful. Great experiments! Opencooper (talk) 06:24, 31 May 2016 (UTC)

A small mistake?[edit]

3D shapes in isometric projection.svg

First, thank you for your work.

Second, I think I might have found a small mistake in one of your additions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:3D_shapes_in_isometric_projection.svg

In the cube there is a measurement that says sqrt(3) and I believe it should be 2*sqrt(3), I haven't checked the others, but I just happened to notice that.

Sorry if I am wrong.

Hi @Sempiedram, Thanks for your feedback. I think √3 is correct. One way of looking at it is to consider that the cube appears as a regular hexagon made of 6 equilateral triangles of side 1. Looking at the top-right one, its top most angle (the one just under the 3 of the √3 label) is 60°. As the top-right side (hypotenuse) has length 1, the horizontal width of the triangle is sin 60° = √3/2. Hence, the total width of two of these triangles back-to-back is √3.
