GRW Salzburg[edit]

Hallo Furfur,

bei deiner Karte zu den Bürgermeisterwahlen in Salzburg ist Zell am See falsch eingefärbt: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Bürgermeisterwahlen_Salzburg_2019.svg

Dort hat nämlich der SPÖ-Kandidat die Stichwahl gewonnen, nicht der ÖVP-Kandidat.

--Glasperlenspieler (talk) 17:57, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

Hallo Glasperlenspieler, danke für den Hinweis – wird geändert! Gruß --Furfur Diskussion 17:58, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
Hallo nochmal, danke.

Maria Alm ist leider auch falsch (sollte SPÖ sein). Ebenso Oberalm bei Hallein und Seekirchen am Wallersee (sollten beide ÖVP sein).

Witzigerweise ist auch auf der Ergebnisseite vom Land Salzburg die Stadt Salzburg falsch eingefärbt: ÖVP-Kandidat Preuner hat die Stichwahl gewonnen, ist aber als "Sonstige" eingefärbt.

Hallo Glasperlenspieler, ja, in der Tat – ich habe etliche Fehler gefunden und korrigiert. Weiß gar nicht, wie das passiert ist ... :-( --Furfur Diskussion 18:09, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
Danke. Bitte auch deine Karte zur Gemeinderatswahl aktualisieren. Bei den Gemeindevertretungswahlen sind 3 Gemeinden falsch eingefärbt: Mattsee, Seekirchen und Straßwalchen (alle SPÖ, wurden aber von der ÖVP gewonnen). https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Gemeindevertretungswahlen_Salzburg_2019.svg https://www.salzburg.gv.at/stat/wahlen/gvw/index2019.html Danke. --Glasperlenspieler (talk) 18:12, 13 April 2019 (UTC)
Glasperlenspieler korrekt, habe es entsprechend geändert. Gruß --Furfur Diskussion 18:18, 13 April 2019 (UTC)

SVG optimisation in maps of Bulgaria[edit]

Hi Furfur, I saw you translated some of my maps of Bulgaria into German. Thanks for that. I saw also that you proceeded to some optimisation of the svg. I will be interested to have some feedback what can be improved. Thanks --Ikonact (talk) 10:11, 13 May 2019 (UTC)

Hello @Ikonact: first let me thank you for your very nice and high quality maps of Bulgaria and Bulgarian history. I assume that you are using Inkscape? I am usually using Adobe Illustrator. Inkscape adds a lot of stuff that is not necessary for the correct display of an SVG file and is not recommended by the SVG standard. Therefore I often remove this because this only increases the file size or (in older Inkscape versions) it even makes the file “invalid” (https://validator.w3.org/). Basically, I am doing this by editing the svg file with a word processor, e.g., Microsoft Word, in "plain text" mode (very important - not as a Word file). There you can remove all the text items that contain either "sodipodi" or "inkscape" (except for those at the beginning xmlns: ...) and the files still displays in the same way (however, I am not sure if Inkscape will add all this again if you edit the file again afterwards).
Some examples in the file Bulgaria_after_unification_political_map-en.svg:
you will find such passages as:
sodipodi:nodetypes="ccccccccccccc ... cccccccc"
You can delete these without loss of content throughout.
You can also delete all items like
inkscape:connector-curvature="0"
;-inkscape-font-specification:'DejaVu Sans Semi-Condensed'
;-inkscape-font-specification:'DejaVu Sans Condensed, Italic'
etc., etc.
But when optimizing a file in such a way you always should be careful not to delete too much by accident (e.g. , one more quotation mark, one more semicolon, or one more empty space than intended). Every time you have deleted something you should reload the file in your browser if it is still correctly displayed and if not, undo and recheck the delection.
If you want to get used to this you should play a little bit around with a file as described. I first learned about this, when I tried to make "invalid" files "valid". The Validator lists you the errors and then you can try to delete a piece and see if the error disappears. Then you get a feeling which part of the syntax is really necessary, and which part is not.
--Furfur Diskussion 18:26, 13 May 2019 (UTC)
Thank you Furfur. I am aware of all these Inkscape additional features and I can clear them a bit but at the same time I would like to keep some that are useful (layers for example). I generate my svg maps in text and then I use Inkscape to optimise the visual aspects (move some names of towns, add river and mountains names, optimise colours etc.). I can clean up after all this is done but if I need to modify something later on Inkscape adds again all this stuff. So it is a bit anoying to clean up every time :-) I will check your suggestions.
I saw that you are using another font. Is Liberation better than DelaVu? --Ikonact (talk) 09:37, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
Of course I don't want to clean anything that is essential for the image display, but since I am not usually using Inkscape, I don't need any Inkscape features. Some Inkscape additions however seem to make the file "invalid", but I have the impression that newer versions of Inkscape produce "clean" SVG files.
Regarding the font: Liberation Sans is not better than DejaVu but usually I am using Arial as my default font and since Arial is a proprietary font, I usually choose the Liberation Sans (with same letter-spcing as Arial) as first choice for display in Wikipedia (it is a free font installed in Wikimedia) and Arial and the generic sans-serif as fallback fonts. --Furfur Diskussion 13:27, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
OK, thanks. Inkscape defines valid SVG with the version I use. In fact the only feature I need in Inkscape is the layer definition. May be I have to see how layers are defined in Adobe Illustrator. For the font I use DejaVu Sans Condensed as default. The only issue is that there is no automatic fallback and I have to define by hand sans-serif. Apparently style definition for the font does not always work. Thanks for your comments. I will check my code :) --Ikonact (talk) 15:00, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
