Kurdistan map[edit]

Hi.My english is not very good so sorry for my english.I work on the kurdish wikipedia and i need to great kurdistan location map.If you prepare for kurdish wiki, we will be very happy.Thanks for all maps.My page is here:[1]--QazîKurd (talk) 05:19, 25 December 2016 (UTC)

Hello! this Kurdistan or this or a different one? NNW 16:36, 28 December 2016 (UTC)
Thanks but these maps are not map i want.I want a map like this.A relief map.--QazîKurd (talk) 10:48, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
Okay, but how do you define "Kurdistan"? Where does it end? NNW 10:51, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
This map shows the city limits.--QazîKurd (talk) 12:22, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

adm location maps[edit]

Hey! so a few months ago I saw your new "adm" maps and so we decided to run a bot to replace our maps in hewiki with the adm maps. I looked at a couple of maps for example Belize and I saw that the boundry of the maps is the same as Belize location map.svg. However now, we noticed that the boundry of File:Argentina adm location map.svg is not the same as File:Argentina location map.svg.
Question: Are there any maps except for argentina in which you changed the boundry?
Thanks in advance,
--Mikey641 (talk) 16:35, 29 December 2016 (UTC)

I cannot tell for all maps, I forgot, sorry. Sometimes there are minor or other changes like the rivers in the Belize map. I remember Chad, Kenya and Sri Lanka are different (but the former location maps weren't made by me), NNW 20:32, 29 December 2016 (UTC)
Thanks. I'm checking all the maps that we changed now. I think that in file:Bolivia adm location map.svg the right border should be 56.8 and not 58.6.--Mikey641 (talk) 15:41, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
You’re right, I corrected it. NNW 17:51, 2 January 2017 (UTC)
Thank you!
Last question: what is the border of file:Finland adm location map.svg? I'm want to correct he:תבנית:מפת מיקום/פינלנד but we don't have "first standard parallel". Does this mean that we can't use this file? We use "top, bottom, left, right"--Mikey641 (talk) 13:50, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
I took a better projection for Finland, so you cannot use a template for equirectangular maps (with top, bottom, left, right). You have to do like he:תבנית:מפת מיקום/רוסיה with Russia edcp location map.svg. NNW 14:00, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
Perhaps you should also take a look at et:Mall:Asendikaart Soome where they seem to have found a solution to use this file without special programming. NNW 14:10, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
Thank you for finding me a way to use this projection! I looked in enwiki and they use your file however they didn't changed the border. which is wrong.--Mikey641 (talk) 15:52, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Municipalities in V.svg[edit]

Hallo NNW, bei Municipalities in V.svg ist Dir ein Fehler unterlaufen. Tatsächlich wurde die Gemeinde de:Reuth (Vogtland) nach de:Weischlitz eingemeindet, nicht andersrum. Allerdings war das auf der Projektseite auch mehr als unglücklich formuliert, bin ebenfalls beinahe darüber gestolpert. VG --Septembermorgen (talk) 22:12, 1 January 2017 (UTC)

Mist, zu schnell und ungenau gelesen. Danke für den Hinweis! NNW 09:01, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Norway Rogaland - Hjelmeland.svg[edit]

Great maps you have made of the municipalities in Norway! I would like to ask you to correct a minor detail of the Hjelmeland map found as Norway Rogaland - Hjelmeland.svg. The southern border that you have indicated is in fact a river within Hjelmeland, and the actual sothern border towards Forsand is closer to the next fiord (Lysefjorden). If you compare the three maps Norway Rogaland - Hjelmeland.svg, Norway Rogaland - Forsand.svg and Norway Rogaland - Strand.svg, you will notice there is a triangle between them that is not within any of the three municipalities, but it belongs to Hjelmeland. Thanks in advance! --Eivindgh (talk) 15:00, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Hello! As you can see in the file history of Norway Rogaland - Hjelmeland.svg it was User:Jon Harald Søby who made this file but I corrected it. NNW 17:50, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Undergo a former (pre-1965) municipalities of Norway map series?[edit]

Hi, NNW. I would like to ask if you would be interested in undergoing an extensive project to make svg-maps of the former (pre-1965) municipalities of Norway? The aim is to create maps of the same standard as the current series (e.g. the above mentioned Norway Rogaland - Hjelmeland.svg, for the about 750 municipalities that existed until the 1960s. Let me know if this is of any interest, then I will give you the detail of the task. --Eivindgh (talk) 15:06, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Before creating more maps of Norway I have to finish the fylkes location map series. The location map of Aust-Agder is still missing, I definitely have to finish this job this year. NNW 17:53, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

German Empire 1937 adm location map.svg[edit]

Hallo NordNordWest,

ich wollte gerne Deine sehr schöne Karte der Weimarer Republik als Basis nehmen um mittelfristig detailliertere Wahlkarten für die Reichstagswahlen zu basteln. Dabei bin ich aber unsicher geworden, weil ich etwas den Eindruck gewonnen habe, dass mir die Ostgrenze der Provinz Ostpreußen deformiert erscheint (nach Nordosten hin scheint die Provinz einen Buckel zu haben, insgesamt wirkt die Provinz auf mich vertikal komprimiert). Bist Du sicher dass das so korrekt ist? Oder ist es nur mein subjektiver Eindruck aufgrund der Projektion?

Viele Grüße --Furfur Diskussion 21:14, 2 January 2017 (UTC)

Moin! Bei dieser Projektion ist immer nur ein verhältnismäßig kleiner Streifen korrekt dargestellt, hier die Höhe vom Ruhrgebiet bzw. Leipzig/Halle. Alles nördlich davon ist vertikal gequetscht, alles südlich in die Länge gezerrt. Ich kann aber gerne nochmal prüfen, ob mir bei Ostpreußen ein Fehler passiert ist. Viele Grüße, NNW 09:28, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
Geprüft und für korrekt befunden. Es ist nur die hässliche gestreckte Plattkarte, die Ostpreußen so seltsam aussehen lässt. NNW 17:25, 3 January 2017 (UTC)
Hallo NNW, ok danke für Deine Antwort. Ich kenne mich überhaupt nicht mit Kartenprojektionen aus. Warum nimmt man solche Plattkarten - ist das der Wikipedia-Standard für Positionskarten? Oder könntest Du eine andere SVG-Karte empfehlen, die man nehmen könnte? Die Karten, die mir so vorschweben, sollen nicht als Positionskarten dienen, sondern einfach nur die Wahlergebnisse darstellen (also in etwa so wie diese hier, nur deutlich detaillierter). An Deiner Karte fand ich ganz schön, dass sie erstmal recht detailliert ist und dass da auch die Flüsse etc. abgebildet sind. Grüße --Furfur Diskussion 18:14, 4 January 2017 (UTC)
Die Plattkarte ist am einfachsten in der Handhabung in einer Positionskarten-Vorlage. Weiter oben gibt es bspw. eine Anfrage wegen einer Karte, die eine echte Kartenprojektion verwendet und prompt für viele Projekte problematisch ist, weil es dann nicht mehr funktioniert mit der simplen Angabe von oberer, unterer, linker und rechter Begrenzung, das ist dann richtig Mathematik. Ob es eine alternative SVG-Karte gibt, kann ich dir nicht sagen, da müsste ich erst genauso suchen wie du. NNW 11:13, 5 January 2017 (UTC)

file:Poland Warsaw location map.svg[edit]

I'm sorry for asking a lot of questions but I just really want to hear your opinion before creating other location maps. What do you think of the Warsaw map?

  1. Should I remove the brown areas indicating populated areas?
  2. Are the rivers ok? Their stroke and all?
  3. Really small water sources: Should I remove them as you did in Blarus?
  4. Any other comments? I really want to know about ANYTHING before creating more maps and I really value your opinion as a graphist.

Thanks in advance--Mikey641 (talk) 13:58, 3 January 2017 (UTC)

Only a short answer (lack of time):
  1. No, they are okay and they help to understand a city.
  2. There is a graphic mistake at Vistula River at the southern part of the map (thicker stroke). In OSM rivers often lack their beginnings. It is necessary to add those missing parts if there are missing parts.
  3. I think these small lakes are senseless (there are only few small rivers, that's no problem). I would have deleted them to create a more clear map and to decrease the file size. On the other hand: this takes time and when used with 220px or 300px they vanish automatically.
  4. I would have generalized the populated areas. In my opinion there are too many too small areas and unnecessary gaps. On the other hand: see above.
When I open the file in its full size [2] more area is shown on the left and the right. Something is wrong with this file. NNW 10:25, 5 January 2017 (UTC)
Thank you very much for your comment. In the next maps that I will create I will do Cartographic generalization with the rivers and populated areas. You are right about the "Vistula River" I will fix it. Thanks--Mikey641 (talk) 21:06, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

Maps of egyptian governorates[edit]

Hi. I've noticed you created new maps of egyptian governorates few years ago. It seems that Arabian Wikipedia uses different maps where Luxor Governorate is much bigger. Look at this file to see the difference. I don't know which version is correct, but I think they can be right. I saw a document from CAPMAS and Luxor Governorate has quite big surface there and is even bigger than 5 other governorates. City Population site and UNICEF are using theses new maps but some other sites use different versions. I couldn't find maps on sites of Egyptian governments. Could you please check it and correct it please if it is not a trouble? Anyway I heard they want to add another 3 governorates and change borders of many others so even an updated versions of maps can be out of date in a few months but who knows? Pikador (talk) 21:49, 9 February 2017 (UTC)

Hello! Egyptian governorates are really difficult. I have been looking for an official (and up to date!) map for a long times – no result. en:Luxor Governorate says the governorate has an area of 55 km². That is quite small. Which one is correct?
These three new governorates are mentioned in note from 2014. I doubt that they came to existance. NNW 09:45, 10 February 2017 (UTC)
It seems they have big mess in administration. So probably best option is just to wait until something official shows up. Pikador (talk) 09:44, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Instructions[edit]

Hello. Can you give instructions to create a simple location map? Or a link to read instructions about it? Xaris333 (talk) 16:23, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

There is no link. Do you know how to work with a program handling vector data? Do you know what a cartographic projection is? Without this knowledge I cannot explain it. NNW 16:26, 12 February 2017 (UTC)

Karte zu Potsdam-Klein Glienicke[edit]

Tach, NNW, es geht um File:Karte Klein Glienicke.png. Schade, dass ich die Anfrage in der Kartenwerkstatt nicht mitbekommen habe. So muss ich mich extra melden:

  • Die Bezeichnung „Nördl. Vorstadt“ links oben ist nicht falsch, aber ungenau: Einerseits hätte ich dann den Plural favorisiert, allerdings ist man sich da innerhalb der Stadt Potsdam auch nicht einig (man findet beides), andererseits und für mich wichtiger heißt der Stadtteil direkt westlich der Glienicker Brücke „Berliner Vorstadt“. Siehe auch de:Potsdam#Stadtgliederung und Quellen.
  • Ich habe mich damit nicht weiter beschäftigt, ob es durch Quellen belegt ist, aber laut de:Park Klein-Glienicke heißt der Parkteil am Jagdschloss Glienicke „Jagdschlossgarten“.

Könntest Du so nett sein, die entsprechende(n) Änderung(en) einzuarbeiten? — Speravir – 22:49, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Na klar, ist geändert. NNW 16:34, 15 February 2017 (UTC)

Left and right coordinates in Lapland map[edit]

Thank you for making a better map for Lapland! In Malline:Sijaintikartta Lapin maakunta I put the top at 70.2 and bottom at 65.4 just like in the German version of the map. But what should be put into left and right? The present coordinates 20.8 and 30.5 are not correct, because Halti goes too much west in the map, if I try the Finnish map in the article. --Raksa123 (talk) 20:24, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

This won't work that way. The projection is completely different. I try to explain:
  • Equidistant projection: all latitudes and all longitudes are parallel lines. So the whole northern egde of a map has got the same latitude, the whole southern edge, too, and both the left and the right edge have got a constant longitude. That's why you can say: top =, bottom =, left= and right=.
  • Conic projection: In a conic projection neither the latitudes nor the longitudes are parallel lines. The longitudes lead to a pole, the latitudes are circlelike around the pole. Imagine to cut off a rectangular map out of the second map above. No edge of this map will have a single, consistent longitude or latitude. That's why your template for Russia works different than your template of France.
Compare the two maps of Finland. The first map shows a hugh Lapland compared to the rest of Finland. In a conic projection Lapland is shown more precisely. That's why I take conic projections for areas near a pole now. But this requires a modification of your location map template. It has to be done like the Russia map (or you find a user like Spischot at de:WP – unfortunately no longer active – who is able to program a template like de:Vorlage:Positionskarte/Lineare Kegelprojektion. Then it is much easier to handle such a projection.) NNW 12:05, 19 February 2017 (UTC)

File:Laos Districts.png[edit]

Since 2013 there have been added some more districts - details can be found on my February 19 2017 contributions and en:File_talk:Bolikhamxai_Province_districts.png. ;) --katpatuka (talk) 07:18, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Hello! Thanks for the hint, I will update my maps as soon as possible. NNW 09:00, 23 February 2017 (UTC)
Both png and svg are updated now. NNW 18:53, 25 February 2017 (UTC)

N series[edit]

Hey. I have a few questions about the N series maps. So I was requested to create county maps for poland (second level) and I decided that if I'm going to create I will do it professionally like you.

  1. firstly I downloaded QGIS. What program do you use?
  2. then I downloaded the Cia world databank II
  3. went to the US site and took shp file of the subdivisions of poland.
  4. also downloaded GSHHS (shore)

Questions:

  1. Is what I did okay? would you do it else?
  2. Can you send me the relief map colors, I saw that it's different.
  3. How do I create a relief map with the country borders (How do I make the contries colors transparent I QGIS/the program that u use)
  4. How do I create a location map, should I export it to svg and then edit it?

Thanks.--Mikey641 (talk) 20:06, 20 March 2017 (UTC)

I don't know if QGIS is okay for this work, I use a vector graphic programs (e.g. Illustrator, sometimes some other). If you know how to work with SVGs it might be better for you to export the original data as soon as possible to SVG. Of course then it is no longer data with coordinates, you will be unable to transform it into another projection. WDB II is a sufficent database for whole countries. For more detailed maps you will need more information. I take VMAP Level 0 with the original scale 1:1.000.000. VMAP requires some re-working and updating because it is old and badly digitalized but it is okay enough to start with it as long as you only use the waterbodies. I would suggest that you start with an administrative map and when you are experienced with that then you can try to create a relief map. It is more difficult and it depends on the scale which database is suitable for a relief map. NNW 17:33, 21 March 2017 (UTC)

BC Hockey Maps[edit]

You made an awesome map for me almost seven years ago (KIJHL).

Was wondering if you can make me team location maps again (for the 2017-18 season). This time for the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL), Pacific Junior Hockey League (BC) ((PJHL)) and the Vancouver Junior Hockey League (VIJHL). Would be very appreciated, whenever you have free time if you can! Thanks. --NuckGhostriderTPB (talk) 04:31, 22 March 2017 (UTC)

Hello! I just made the map in the background. File:KIJHL Team Locations.svg was made by en:User:Vidioman, I didn't even know that it exists. You better ask him first. Perhaps he still has got the data, then it is easy to update it, easier than starting from zero. NNW 08:45, 22 March 2017 (UTC)
