Mise à jour cartes régions France[edit]

Bonjour Sting et bonne année. J'ai mis à jour File:France relief location map.jpg (avec outil tampon), mais si tu peux aussi mettre à jour File:France relief location carte regions et departements.png, ce serait super (l'outil tampon n'est pas approprié). Merci d'avance. Cordialement, Jack ma (talk) 09:12, 3 January 2016 (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

Permission to use relief map of Costa Rica[edit]

Hello, I am a master's student studying two volcanoes in Costa Rica (Poás and Turrialba) and writing two papers for submission to peer-reviewed journals. I would like to include a map that shows the context of these two field sites. Would you permit me to use and modify your map for these papers if I include a credit in the caption of these figures? I would make the following modifications: add in labels for San José, Poás, and Turrialba and include two "zoom-in" photos showing the craters of Poás and Turrialba.

1913 Colonial Map of Africa[edit]

Hi, Dropping a note to let you know I appreciate the map. It will be used in an educational book I'm putting together about the impact of colonialism on indigenous peoples. When I publish the book (self-publish, probably), I'll drop you a note so you can see how helpful the map was. I have not keyed the areas by color because the print book will be in black and white. I've approximately labeled the territories according to areas controlled. Have tied it to a (brief)discussion of the Berlin Conference of 1884-85, in which European powers carved up the continent. Thanks for the neat map. A. G. Moore —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 04:53, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

I have made a derivative work of your file[edit]

Bonjour Sting, j'espère que vous allez bien. Pardonnez, s'il vous plaît, mes erreurs de français - si c'est trop difficile à lire, une version en anglais est dessous. J'ai utilisé votre carte de France File:France_location_map-Regions_and_departements-2015.svg pour créer un «paquet» de cartes-mémoire pour Anki. Je ne l'ai pas encore publié, mais je voulais savoir comment vous voudriez être credité: comment apparaît: «Map credit: Wikimedia Commons users Eric Gaba & Otourly. Licensed under CC-BY-SA 4.0» ? Est-ce que vous préfériez que le lien indique votre page Wikipédia? Merci infiniment pour le travail que vous avez fait!
Hi Sting! I hope you are well. I have used File:France_location_map-Regions_and_departements-2015.svg to create an Anki deck for study. I have not yet published it for others to use, but I plan to do so. I wanted to ask you how you would prefer to be credited. How is: "Map credit: Wikimedia Commons users Eric Gaba & Otourly.

Using your dymaxion map for a gondwana reconstruction activity[edit]

Hi Sting, I'm making an educational activity about Gondwana, and I'm going to use some bits from your dymaxion maps to do it. You cut out all the southern continents, and then try to fit them together.

I'm still working on the files, but I want to know if this credit is okay:

It will be a print-out, so I don't think I can do hyperlinks.

Hope this is okay, David Shaw Shaw.David (talk) 05:44, 25 October 2016 (UTC)

Hello David. Thank for the information about the use of the map. The credits are fine. Sting (talk) 19:11, 26 October 2016 (UTC)
