Somerset maps[edit]

Hi, I've created the templates in [1] , wasn't aware you'd previously made maps. Is it possible that you could check them, I tried the Mendip map in Babington House and the pin was outside the area to the northwest for some reason. Is it possible you could make similar district maps for Cheshire and Merseyside as an editor I know does a lot of work on buildings there.Blofeld Dr. (talk) 09:47, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

I have made electoral ward maps for every district of the UK in that style, cf Category:Maps of Cheshire. Fixed the Mendip template - the W and E were back to front :)
However, I do not think these maps are suitable for this use. Two reasons:
  1. Stable admin, not very variable electoral, divisions should be used. The equivalent maps using CPs.
  2. Location-in-county is primary purpose of the infobox maps, with location-in-country, being the secondary factor. The district-level maps show the less significant location-in-district, make location-in-county harder to visualise, and are useless for location-in-country.

I will raise this matter at w:Wikipedia talk:WikiProject UK geography--Nilfanion (talk) 12:53, 25 February 2015 (UTC)

Using a file of yours[edit]

Hi. I am a football fan from South Yorkshire and have had the idea to write a book on clubs from the county. On each chapter I would like to add a map of the county with a marker indicating where the club is located - and this one (actually, the first edition, without the inset) fits the bill perfectly.

As it is the first time I have done anything like this, I have no idea where to begin when it comes to copyright/attributon etc...

Could you please let me know whether I am free to use the map in my book, and if so, what you would like me to do with regards attributing you at the end of the book.

Thanks very much!
