File:Russia edcp location map.svg[edit]

Borders between Russia and Japan on your map is completely incorrect, because there is no border between Urup and Iturup. All Kurils are de jure and de facto Russian. It does not matter that Japan claimed some of the Russian Kuril Islands. We must show only the existing borders on all maps.

So please remove non-existent border from the Location map of Russia or use my version. Andrey Isakov (talk) 12:44, 29 April 2010 (UTC)

You are wrong. See File:Demis-kurils-russian names.png and en:Kuril Islands dispute. Do not try to enforce the view of one nation in wikipedia. Uwe Dedering (talk) 15:30, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
Am I wrong? In what? You do not agree with the fact that all the Kuril Island are Russian since 1945? I do not see any problems with File:Demis-kurils-russian names.png. This map shows all the historical borders between Russia and Japan. So we must use the last one (since 1945). Andrey Isakov (talk) 06:07, 30 April 2010 (UTC)
For a disputed map, summarize the factual problems on the corresponding talk page, citing reliable sources, add {{Disputed diagram}} to its description, and, if you wish, create another map with your corrections, citing sources, and upload it under another name. Do not upload the version you prefer over the one you object to, please. Walter Siegmund (talk) 15:48, 29 April 2010 (UTC)
Thank you for the help with the template {{Disputed diagram}}. Andrey Isakov (talk) 06:07, 30 April 2010 (UTC)

Commons:IUCN red list[edit]

Hi. Thanks for your offer to help with the IUCN red list project. Please note that I am still waiting for them to send a permission to OTRS, before I start uploading maps to Commons. What software are you using? Cheers, GoEThe (talk) 11:51, 22 June 2010 (UTC)

Selfmade software, using for reading shapefiles en:GeoTools. Uwe Dedering (talk) 20:55, 22 June 2010 (UTC)
Nice! Is it able to produce the maps in a (semi-)automated way? Can it zoom in to the necessary area? And use inset maps to indicate where the zoomed in part is in the world? The website has all the distribution maps in only a few shapefiles (by taxonomic group). Is this a problem for your software? I was able to find a script in ArcGis that splits the shapefiles by the description in an attribute field. Cheers, GoEThe (talk) 10:23, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

About File:China edcp location map.svg[edit]

I've realized it will approach some sensitive political issues if I ask you about this proposal~

However, I still would like to ask you to alter different colours between Taiwan and mainland China. As the PRC has never effectively ruled Taiwan since it was founded, in this map which shows on no dispute and imply this island as a part of them in the same appearance. I am afraid I cannot accept this practice and it obviously violates impartial viewpoint in wikipedia. At this point I must say I don't really mean to criticize you, but I really expect that you can give consideration for every standview.

In spite of this, I am able to accept if the picture shows differentiation on dispute. Maybe I can offer you some instances and you might deliberate for them ,such as this China blank map.svg, and I think this is a good method to dissolve every kind of similar issue. If you'd like to communicate with me, you can use my discussion page, and I will be really delighted to see your reply. --JOSH tw (talk) 13:38, 25 June 2010 (UTC)

@Josh tw You are right, i will upload a new version with Taiwan colored like Karabach in the File:Azerbaijan_location_map.svg. ✓ Done Uwe Dedering (talk) 18:08, 5 July 2010 (UTC)
I am really glad of your help and your reply, and I have already seen the fruits of your work; but I still consider that the display is a bit indistinctive as each colour are so close. For this reason, I attempted to modify a new uploading with distinct colour on Taiwan, the appearance of colour is C:12/M:8/Y:20/K:2 ; colour code:E4E4D0. You can recover it if you don't satisfy my work, but also tell me the reason. Whatever, I have to say every your works are really brilliant!--JOSH tw (talk) 20:09, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Don't change the color. This is not an isolated map. It is part of the location map project. See here: de:Wikipedia:Kartenwerkstatt/Positionskarten. All colors are the same in over 500 location maps. And you have destroyed the layers for inkscape. I will revert now. If you want a change, please ask first... Uwe Dedering (talk) 20:22, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Frisia[edit]

Hey, thanks for your help with the svg, too bad the line is still there. Richardprins (talk) 21:10, 13 July 2010 (UTC)

Disputed map[edit]

For a disputed map, summarize the factual problems on the corresponding talk page, citing reliable sources, add {{Disputed diagram}} to its description, and, if you wish, create another map with your corrections, citing sources, and upload it under another name. Thank you. Walter Siegmund (talk) 21:45, 16 July 2010 (UTC)

File:India_location_map.svg[edit]

Hello,

Thank you for your reply. I did not know that I had removed the coastline; this was not done intentionally.

Thanks.

--AnonyLog (talk) 15:46, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

OK :-) Uwe Dedering (talk) 08:13, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

I didnt intend to remove the coastline. I added them back. I have coloured the parts of Kashmir controlled by Pakistan and China differently. --Ashwinikalantri (talk) 19:09, 17 January 2011 (UTC)

This time you have destroyed the layers for inkscape. And please discuss the different colors before you change this map!. Uwe Dedering (talk) 16:12, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
I wasn't aware that I was altering the layers. How do you edit the .svg file? I used Adobe Illustrator CS4.--Ashwinikalantri (talk) 19:16, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
I use Inkscape, but it would in this case be possible to use a text editor. But do not change the colors again please, the wikipedia has to show a neutral point of view, not the pov of one country. Uwe Dedering (talk) 19:36, 18 January 2011 (UTC)
Smiley.svg Thank you and lets discuss that.--Ashwinikalantri (talk) 23:58, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

About templates, maps and points[edit]

Hi Uwe, can you please point me to some information somewhere that would help me learn how to have one and the same svg map in a series of infobox templates (like a country with subdivisions) and then have an svg point/spot superimpose on it by the geo-coordinates given in one of the lines? I am trying to figure it out by following discussion histories all over, but I'm still nowhere. Thank you. Hoverfish (talk) 00:59, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Yes, this is excellent. Thank you! Hoverfish (talk) 11:08, 5 November 2010 (UTC)

Tibetan diaspora location map[edit]

Hi Uwe, I am writting to you, as you made File:India_location_map.svg. Would it be possible to make File:Tibetan diaspora location map.svg showing India, Bhutan and Nepal in white ? I have suggested this here :[1]. Thanks for your help.--Rédacteur Tibet (talk) 17:10, 14 January 2011 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Hey, where did you get this this terrain image from? [2], my guess is that you didn't create it. --Supreme Deliciousness (talk) 19:15, 21 January 2011 (UTC)

en:SRTM data. Uwe Dedering (talk) 20:34, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Your non neutral pov image[edit]

Hello, I noticed your map: [3]

That image is claiming that the Israeli occupied Golan is part of Israel. --Supreme Deliciousness (talk) 17:51, 27 January 2011 (UTC)

Wow, i completly forgot that, because the borders were only for orientation for a historical map. I will correct the map in the next days. Uwe Dedering (talk) 20:32, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

Datei waterbasin map.jpg[edit]

Hi Uwe

Hab nach langer Inaktivität erst jetzt festgestellt, dass in die Datei auf wiki-commons die Flussbecken von Tocantins und Araguaia vertauscht sind (siehe Artikel Goiás). Richtig ist Rio Araguaia links, Tocantins rechts. Ich hoffe, du hast Lust dies zu korrigieren. Herzlichen Dank im Voraus! -- Oceco (talk) 20:25, 26 April 2011 (UTC)

About File:China edcp location map.svg (2, Yug)[edit]

Hello,
1. A new set: since the current set of map is based upon File:China blank map.svg which haven't a clear projection/coordinates, it is need to set up a new set of maps for China. Your creations are more reliable as thus a good new basis ! So let's rool!
2. China map: I'm rather pro-Taiwanese independence, but this map is 'ok' for me since the file name use "China", not PRC nor ROC, and is thus correct.
3. PRC map (political): But, an accurate political version such as PRC vs ROC would need color differentiation. For colors, see: File:Macau locator map.svg
4. Relief location blank: I actually came to request you a blank relief location map, without parallels, without borders (borders can be retrieved from the SVG version if necessary). This background is need for historical maps, on which I contribute time by time. For such background, I encourage you to use the PD license.
Regards, Yug 16:55, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

@Yug These two maps are not part of a china set. They are part of the location map project and you should know that. What do you think about a map like File:Azerbaijan_base_map.svg? Layers can easily be deleted or new layers can be added. Licence would be Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0. See also File:Azerbaijan_railway_map.svg. Uwe Dedering (talk) 17:39, 5 July 2010 (UTC)

Hi Yug, I actually do have my difficulties to understand owhat you are trying to say or what you wish for. However, maybe you want to check out Category:SVG locator maps of China (location map scheme). I tried to take more than one view into account when it came to disputed areas.--TUBSMail-closed.svg 12:59, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

China (3) and Historical maps mapmaking[edit]

Hello Uwe, I'm today working again on an historical map. This time about 5th century BC's China. Historical maps are closely relate to topography. Also, I wish to share the following issues with you

  1. Soft display of borders: Using your topographic background, I will find myself forced to display the modern provinces borders. Historical maps ask to get rid off modern borders, which are irrelevant and misleading in these early times. It will be better for historical maps to start from a purely topographic background, without borders of parallels and meridians. It would help if you can provide a such purely topographic version of File:China edcp relief location map.jpg, and store parallels and meridians in the location map.
  2. Location map, code clean up : I'm looking into File:China edcp location map.svg's code. Nice ! Is is ok to change the some items' names ? I'm willing to set the 24 provinces polygons labels to their respective name, such id="Henan", id="Guangdong". Thus: 10m-admin-1-states-provinces-shp.1973 -> Yunnan. That will be easier to read.

Please let me know your opinion on this 2 issues *here*, and simply notice me on my talkpage. Yug (talk) 09:07, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Uwe, I'm collecting my previously done SVG layers : Chinese provinces names ; China topography ; China 5 BC ; China 609 ; China 742 ; China 1900 to covert them to your projection China edcp location map.svg. Please provide an another version of China_edcp_relief_location_map.jpg without borders, with very thin meridians and parallels, and with all landmass in natural colors (without white layer). So I can publish 5 maps set all based on you projection and georeferenced maps ; ) Yug (talk) 18:12, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Carte TGV-fr.svg[edit]

Bonjour,

je suis un wikipédien novice et je ne sais pas créer/modifier des fichiers SVG comme on trouve beaucoup sur Wikipedia.

Or, je me désolé de voir la carte des LGV françaises ne plus indiqué aucun chantier de LGV alors qu'il n'y en a jamais eu autant de démarrés en même temps !

Aussi, je contacte tout les derniers contributeurs du fichier. Pouvez-vous m'aider à remédier à ce retard?

Hi Dedering! I noticed that you made the above map. If it's okay with you, may I ask for your assistance to also create Location maps for Sri Lanka by Province (cropped to province, while using the same colour theme) as well? The existing location maps are all non-cropped versions, with colours not used commonly in more current location maps. Hoping to hear from you soon! Best regards, Rehman 06:33, 5 April 2015 (UTC)
