I'm including your blank topographical map in my dissertation on the creation of the modern border between Spain and France. Of course credit is given. Thanks so much for your work! It's by far the clearest topographical map and it thankfully isn't overcrowded with information.

Thanks again, Daniel Fahrenthold dfahrenthold@gmail.com

Photo location[edit]

Hi there. I noticed this photo, and tried to confirm the location using Google satellite based on the coordinates you provided. I wasn't able to find it. Could you please let me know the specific coordinates? Thanks. Magnolia677 (talk) 03:51, 28 May 2015 (UTC)

Thank you for your response on my talk page. Since you were the original uploader of this photo, what was your source? How do you know it was taken in Markham? Thanks again. Magnolia677 (talk) 19:36, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks again for your response. It's a great photo, but I'm not sure where it was taken. I can't seem to find it on Google satellite. I'll keep looking. Cheers. Magnolia677 (talk) 19:41, 31 May 2015 (UTC)

Southern Africa[edit]

If you ever have time, a location map for southern Africa may be useful. That would be a map as far north as the Kunene river, the northern border of Namibia, and the Zambezi, the northern border of Zimbabwe, and along the Zambezi river down to the sea. JMK (talk) 09:44, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

A mystery to me when using these maps in general is which name to use when calling them, in for instance {{Location map+|Africa ... JMK (talk) 09:44, 1 June 2015 (UTC)

use of Via Egnatia map[edit]

Hi, Eric, Sting

I am producing a Shutterfly book of photos taken on my recent trip there. The map resolution on Shutterfly's upload is not sufficient, but I have printed it, and plan to paste it into the book. It is for my use only, and to show my friends. Thanks for producing the map, Maxine —Preceding unsigned comment was added by 2602:30A:2E14:5BE0:5129:A28F:7561:2809 (talk) 11:42, 11 November 2015 (UTC)

Eric, I plan to use the image, "The Fight for the Standard," in an Edinburgh travelog album on Facebook. I will place the proper attributes in the caption for the image. Please let me know if this is suitable -- I'm new to this. Thanks! Galen

Request[edit]

Hi, Sting. I admire your cartographical work. I wonder if you might create a map such as this one you created back in 2009, removing country borders and the rest of administrative borders, in order to make it more useful to locate portuguese settlements in the Atlantic Mahgrib Coast from an Early Modern perspective. Best regards.--Asqueladd (talk) 16:07, 29 November 2015 (UTC)

Tectonic plates of Antarctica[edit]

Greetings Eric, I am doing some research for a book. Since I cannot afford to spend the summer in Antarctica, I am doing my research online and use others work as my reference. I may or may not use the plate drawings in the book. I will certainly credit for anything I will get from your work in the book. Plate tectonics is very interesting and I wish I had the time to delve more deeply into the subject. Unfortunately, I have to work for a living and just do not have the time. I do thank you for everything I plan to use that you have created. Sincerely Robert Michaels
