Yo Ho Ho[edit]

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! --Kivo (talk) 20:11, 23 April 2015 (UTC)

Great Ouse catchment area map[edit]

Thank you for creating this image. I thought you might like to be made aware that for some reason the tributary junction with the w:River Ouzel at w:Newport Pagnell is not shown (though the Ouzel itself is shown as far as Willen Lake?). Thanks.--John Maynard Friedman (talk) 17:10, 13 June 2015 (UTC)

That's the result of limitations in my workflow. The river data is from OS Meridian 2, which for the most part, labels the rivers. To maintain clarity, I remove the unlabelled sections as these are usually the minor, possibly unnamed, streams. In this case, the Ouzel from its confluence with an unnamed stream (just north of the M4 and Willen Lake) to the Ouse is not labelled so got removed. I can correct that easily enough.
Also noticed a more serious error - the headwaters of the w:River Lea in Luton are shown as an isolated river in the Great Ouse catchment, and not as part of the Thames...
Since I created that map OS has released a new Open Rivers product, which has a connected network. With any luck, that will avoid issues like these.--Nilfanion (talk) 10:50, 14 June 2015 (UTC)
