Loire-Atlantique et Maine-et-Loire[edit]

Salut Sting ! Tous mes vœux pour 2018 ! Face-smile.svg Les frontières de la Loire-Atlantique et du Maine-et-Loire ont changé deux fois depuis 2016. As-tu l'envie et le temps de modifier tes quatre cartes ? Si oui, la demande est ici. Sinon, je m'en occuperai à l'occasion, même si mon activité a fortement ralenti. --Flappiefh (talk) 08:50, 5 January 2018 (UTC)

Permission for your Tectonic plates boundaries map[edit]

Hello, Mr. Gaba,

Pearson and the Kentucky Department of Education are developing assessment tests for students in Kentucky. We would like to use your map found at to illustrate a question on a practice biology test.

We will be happy to credit you as the author of the map, but we would not be able to distribute the test in which it would appear under the Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.5 Generic license. Would it still be permissible to use this map in the test?

Best regards, Robin Dufner Permissions Coordinator Pearson —Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) 21:50, 11 January 2018 (UTC)

Portobello Books: Brilliant Maps[edit]

Dear Eric Gaba,

I am writing to let you know that Portobello Books will be publishing a book of maps with Ian Wright, based on his website Brilliant Maps, in November 2018. The Brilliant Maps book will feature maps based on existing data, reimagined by a team of graphic designers, and will be sold throughout the world in volume and electronic form.

We would love to use the concept for your map Colonial Africa 1913 map in the book, both in our edition and in any editions we licence to publishers. We will not use your original map, but rather redraw the map using the most up-to-date information.

As the concept is your own, we’d like to offer you a brief biography at the back of the book, to acknowledge the inspiration for the map and to allow readers to discover more of your work; any licensees would do the same.

As we are working to a tight production schedule, we would appreciate hearing from you with your biography and statement of approval by the 29th June.

Do let me know if you have any questions about the book or our plans.

Best wishes,

Sinéad O'Callaghan

Alaska compared to Lower 48[edit]

A really great map! It visualizes the vast area of Alaska and the lengths of (SE) coast strip and (SW) island chain.

(In mid 1982 heading for Alaska, hitch-hiking from Rochester, NY, I did not even reach this state, but got 24 hrs stuck in Wonowon, nice name, see
