MBTA Map

Your map of the MBTA has been standard on Wikipedia, as you can see by Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority and ka:ბოსტონის მეტროპოლიტენი and the rest of the pages. But now there's some question about its license: Commons:Commons:Deletion_requests/File:MBTA_Boston_subway_map.png. Would you be willing to give us a clear license suitable for Wikipedia and Commons for this?--Prosfilaes (talk) 20:22, 26 February 2011 (UTC)

Could you go Commons:Commons:Deletion_requests/File:MBTA_Boston_subway_map.png and state that you want it under a CC-BY-SA-3.0 with that attribution then? Just for formality's sake.--Prosfilaes (talk) 20:36, 27 February 2011 (UTC)

How far away is the horizon graph

The description of how to calculate the distance to the horizon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:How_far_away_is_the_horizon.png) is a bit unclear in my opinion. The sentence about the distance of the horizon increasing by the square root of x when ascending x units makes little to no sense when looking at the graph. Going from 2m to 200m you go from seeing 5km to 50km, but according to mentioned sentence an ascent of 198 meters would increase the view by 14 meters, or, if there is a confusion of m/km 14km, which still does not add up. The correct calculation would be distance seen in km equals the square root of altitude in meters times 12.7 (or d(mi)=√alt(ft)*1.5), or am I missing something here? (24.80.234.209 (talk) 00:00, 17 June 2010 (UTC))

I think the confusion here is that the important difference between 2m and 200m is a factor of 100 -- the absolute difference of 198m is not what you use to calculate. So, with a factor of 100 difference between 2m and 200m, the square root of 100 is 10, so the distance to the horizon increases by a factor of 10 -- from 5km to 50km. Hope this makes sense -- let me know if you think I'm missing something. Thanks! Citynoise (talk) 19:06, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Well done on the graph, it's a great way to communicate the same info in various units. Signed, an anonymous user looking at lights on the horizon 58.181.161.20 (talk) 12:53, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

Impossible.

I have added a Talk section. Basically your graph shows the function to have the same feet-per-5280-feet slope as its meter-per-1000-meter slope. That is impossible.MarkFilipak (talk) 21:48, 29 November 2014 (UTC)

A trivial check with the formulas given in the article shows that the graph is perfectly correct, and there is no problem with units. After all, this graph shows ratios, not absolute measurements -- when the viewer's height above the horizon is changed, the new distance to the horizon will be the same regardless of the units. (For example, near the earth's surface, doubling h will make d increase by sqrt(2), regardless of how they're measured.) The slope of the line is not 1:5280 or 1:1000, but rather 1:sqrt(2) Citynoise (talk) 16:29, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

Black Percent Map

I think there is something wrong with the map: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:New_2000_black_percent.gif. One example is a >5% black population living in Baker County, Oregon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baker_County,_Oregon). I think the graphic should be edited or removed. The map does seem more or less right but perhaps there is something going on with the legend? Not sure. Good luck and thanks for the good work. Astauthamer (talk) 22:06, 14 October 2009 (UTC)

Feel like helping?

Hey, I'm nearing completion of the Yavapai people article (it's in my sandbox right now), and would really like a map showing preconquest territory. A book I have has one, but I presume it's copyrighted. So, if you could either replicate it somehow, or even tell me an easy way to do that, it would be MUCH appreciated. Cheers!

Major endorheic basins

The two maps Image:Ocean drainage.png and Image:Major endorheric basins.png are really great maps, I would like to have an image of the basin in Arabia in large resolution, or maybe the map in SVG.

I am building a theory that the story of Noah probably happened in that basin, that way it would make more sense! The basin would get filled up with 40 days of rain (in a way that Mesopotamia could never do) and building an Ark there is even more remarkable than on the shores of two great rivers. --DelftUser 14:48, 12 February 2007 (UTC)

Ah, okay. You had put "MUCH larger version of this" which led me to believe it was the same exact map just larger. I was going to convert the TIFF to a reasonable size and upload it but I didn't think it was under a free license. I have updated the image page to hopefully make it more clear.
Could you possibly upload a version where the key is actually readable? I can't even tell what the income levels are being represented. gren グレン 03:21, 10 February 2007 (UTC)

Non-Hispanic White Map Request

Citynoise, do you think a Non-Hispanic White population map would be more representative of the "White American" population? A vast majority of Hispanics identify as "White" for the census, so it might be good to tease out this group if you are going to have a "Hispanic" population map. Let me know what you think. --Bfraga 18:43, 23 July 2006 (UTC)

Actually, I'm thinking a Non-Hispanic White map would be pretty easy to create. I do a lot of work with the census (particulary census 2000), and almost all figures given down to the "place" level include non-hispanic white as distinct (now, non-white hispanic would be much more difficult, as would non-hispanic black, etc) since it is quite clear that this statistic is useful for many purposes, including civil rights legislation. In 1990, when "Hispanic" was distinguished as an "ethnic group", they did something similary, albeit less widespread. In 1980, the first time "Hispanic" was used as a category, the non-hispanic white population was not disaggregated, making almost all of those figures extremely difficult to analyze, forcing a person to look at the breakdown of the self-reported race of those who marked "Hispanic", then subtracting those who mark "white". I'm not absolutely sure where you're getting tract data broken down by race (I'd actually like to know for my own research), but I'm thinking it's probably there. Who knows though, the race/ethnicity seperation can be extremely cumbersome for particular ethnic groups. --Bfraga 06:27, 26 July 2006 (UTC)
EDIT: I just checked American FactFinder, and found that you can actually see the non-hispanic population broken down by race right down to the census tract level. See what you think. --Bfraga 06:33, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

That "Geolytics" package sounds interesting. Do you think Stanford has a partnership with the company as well?

In regards to the "White American" question, the reason for using non-hispanic white as an indication of "White" america is because for most civil rights purposes in order to designate a segment of the population which has historically been discriminated against as a "non-white" group. For example, when you use the map you currently have, Mexican-Americans are included with "Whites." This group, as an example, has been singled out in the southwest for decades as an inferior "ethnic" group (or even racial group, most famously in the 1930 census, where Mexican was a race along with White, Negro, Indian, Hindu, Korean, Japanese, and Chinese). This would seem to imply that some believed "White" to be a superior ethnic group. However, the census calls "White" a racial group. Although it is interesting to see how many "Hispanics" identify as "White", this is really beside the point of most uses of census data related to the Hispanic population. Indeed, something like 48% of Hispanics identify racially as "White", and about 42% identify racially as "Hispanic" by selecting "Other" as their racial group and then writing in a Hispanic national origin or pan-ethnic label. I guess in the end it's up to you. Most of the work done regarding modern demographics (post-1990 census) uses non-Hispanic White figures instead of "White" figures. My opinion is that it's misleading to say "White" without stating that it includes Hispanic whites, simply because that accounts for something like 6-7% of all of those who identify as White. Ah, long comment, I apologize. Let me know what you think. --Bfraga 06:57, 27 July 2006 (UTC)

Greetings, I am a PhD student at Arizona State University doing some research using Gini Coefficient data.

Can you please send me the raw data you referred to in your prior post on my user talk page (BluePotato1)? BluePotato1 (talk) 18:32, 22 January 2009 (UTC)

Hi, Citynoise.
Like the two posters above I would also like to be able to play with portions of the raw data that you used to make this plot, but I hate to see you have to go out of your way to send this data out repeatedly every time someone requests it. I think you should upload it somewhere and put a link into the Wikipedia Gini Index page so that other people can access it. This plot is a really beautiful compilation and presentation of Gini data, and I'm sure that lots of people would love to play with the raw data (especially given the current prominence of the Occupy Wall Street movement), but either cannot figure out how to request it, or like me, are a little hesitant to ask a busy Wikipedia editor to take the time to send it out to them individually. Please consider making this raw data available to all Wikipedia readers in a very easy-to-access form. Thanks for considering my request.

Kudos, and map request

Hello Citynoise. Saw your map of The Republic of Indian River. Excellent job! Minor suggestions: (1) could the lines of the British and American claims be overlaid, or placed on a separate mini-map, to give historical context. (2) Could a couple of present-day towns/villages be included, to give context for modern-day readers. These could include Colebrook (sp?) NH, something in VT and ME, and something in QC. Chartierville, La Patrie and maybe Lac Mégantic and Armstrong spring to mind. Are there any present-day villages actually in the Indian river area? Having driven through the area, all I remember is a state park (and a herd of moose in the road!).

Now, for the request. I have recently added map requests for the defunct Republic of Madawaska, that I think would be up your alley. I have found some historical maps showing the area, but as the Republic was never a formal entity, the area the so-called Republic covered is somewhat vague. Certainly it included present-day Edmundston NB, and Madawaska ME, and probably most or all of the Madawaska River basin. I have some historical maps of the area, if that would help, but am not much of a cartographer myself. Let me know if these would help, and I'll upload them into the Commons. Thanks, and feel free to contact me on my talk page. Esseh 21:50, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

I am very impressed with your maps. Would you tell me the type of program you used to make them?

Hi, thanks for the map. Is it supposed to go that far north? It has part of Washington territory. And why is there an exclamation point? --AW (talk) 21:22, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Caspian Sea

Hi Citynoise,

The ocean article does say that "Geologically, an ocean is an area of oceanic crust covered by water. ... From this perspective, there are three oceans today: the World Ocean and the Caspian and Black Seas". The Aral Sea is a lake geologically because it is a continental depression filled with water, which is quite different from the Caspian, which is a remnant of the world ocean which got isolated when Africa collided with Eurasia. Its twin, the Black Sea, was not connected to the World Sea until 7000 (?) years ago (the connection, by the way, is over land), and over the past few million years the Mediterranean Sea was also sealed off at the Straights of Gibraltar a couple times. Sometimes people describe them as being giant lakes at those times, but I don't know if they mean this seriously, or if it's poetic license for a lay audience. (The Mediterranean is sometimes poetically called a lake today, and more often people have spoken of saline lakes on the ocean floor as the Mediterranean dried up.) Analogously, the Atlantic Ocean has been called the Great Lake, with Europe and America being on opposite shores. The Caspian is called an inland sea (ocean sea vs. inland sea), but almost never a "lake". If we take the definition of a lake being a body of water surrounded by land literally, then the world ocean would also be a lake, since it is bounded on all sides by land. (Mathematically/topologically, there is no difference between the world ocean and the Caspian.) Of course, that's not what people mean when they say that, but it does show how slippery definitions can be. It's kind of like arguing whether Pluto is a planet.

The geological definition is less ambiguous than most. I left the Caspian in the Lakes by Area article for comparison, or for those who want it to be a lake; maybe we could do something similar for the Lakes by Volume article? kwami (talk) 00:23, 10 February 2008 (UTC)

Tropical cyclones 1945 2006.png

Very nice picture. :) The only problem I can see with it is that it is very hard to distinguish between stronger storms (Categories 3, 4 and 5 in the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale) because they are all similar shades of red. In order to get around that, we developed a color scale for use in Wikipedia, and we have it on Template talk:Storm colour. Would you mind reuploading the pic using that scale, to see if it is easier to distinguish between different storm intensities? Titoxd(?!? - cool stuff) 19:34, 15 March 2008 (UTC)

Amazing picture indeed! With your permission, I will use it in my PhD thesis manuscript to illustrate the climatology of tropical cyclogenesis. Thanks a lot for this amazing work. Daelomin (talk) 15:09, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

I've seen your image of the Tropical Cyclones 1945-2006, indeed, an excellent image! A little suggestion about it, is it possible to separate the cyclones tracks into several time periods, and cumulate them with different combination? I believe this can figure out the opposite characteristic of the EI Nino and La Nina effect. How do you think? sckuok (talk) 03:08, 10 Aug 2008

Citynoise, thank you so much for your permission!
About the El Niño and La Niña cycles, it seems that there are no regular periods, and have some transition between these two effects. Therefore, may be can try to remark on some major effect years first and see what happen,

I just translated into Italian the list of lakes by area where you created the miniatures of the lakes on the list. Could you also make those of the few lakes missing? Thanks! :-)--Threecharlie (talk) 22:43, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Hi! First of all, thanks for all of your contributions to Wikipedia, many of your maps are quite awesome and make a great addition to Wikipedia. As for the File, I'd like to give it a try of creating a graphic, as the current one is quite cluttered, could you please post, or send me the references for the data?

Thanks, and Regards, Sebastian 02:18, 8 April 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Tian2992 (talkcontribs)

Gini since WWII.svg

Citynoise,
Any chance you could upload and link to the raw data you acquired and used to create this plot on the Wikipedia articles which use this plot? I don't understand the nuts and bolts of Wikipedia well enough to know how many hoops you have to jump through to get this done rather than just emailing the data to everyone who requests it individually. I'd like to know whether or not you can do this fairly easily, however, and if you are willing to do so, or if you have too many irons in the fire currently to be bothered with it. I posted this request previously on another discussion, but you probably didn't read it as there has not been any other recent activity on that discussion. Thanks for considering this request.

US military personnel and expenditures

I love your graph of US military personnel and expenditures. I would like to use this graph (or a modified version of it) in a book that I am writing on the Cold War. I would like your permission to do this.

I also wonder if you could provide me with the raw graph or spreadsheet, and also your sources for the data. For the purposes of the book, I only need the expenditures portion of the graph, and since the book is going to be black on white only, the colors in this chart will obscure the needed values.

All proper credits will be applied to any data that is used.

Thanks,

Updated maps for "Gender differences in suicide

Hello! I am working on updating the Wikipedia page "Gender differences in suicide". I think the maps that you've included provide some good data for the article, however they are a little out of date. I went to the website linked through the pictures (radicalcartography), and saw that you'd made some new maps using more recent data. Would it be possible for you to upload the new pictures so that the article accurately reflects current trends? I'm fairly new to Wikipedia, so I'm unsure how/if I can do this myself. Thanks for any help you can provide! CoeA (talk) 14:33, 17 April 2013 (UTC)

World homosexuality laws map

Hello. I see that you are interested in maps. I was wondering if you would be interested in modifying this map [3] (or creating a new map), so that propaganda laws and anti-discrimination laws can also be included such as this map [4]. The green colour for de jure penalty that is de facto not enforced is also problematic. Such a map would be very useful and could be used in non-English wikipedia's as well.

List of Mayors of New Haven, CT

Hello - thank you for adding details to the entry on New Haven Mayors page for Lucien Wells Sperry. He was my first cousin, six times removed. I have just come to learn of his suicide and the scandal that preceeded it, but it appears to be very difficult to find resources for full information. Can you tell me where you got the information for your edit: "committed suicide after embezzling trust funds; died \$50,000 in debt"? The only reference I have been able to turn up is from a short notice in a newspaper in California. I also understand that Lucien's troubles began about a decade earlier as he was caught up in the Noyes Insurance Investigation, but wikipedia has nothing on this apparently. Thank you for any additional light you may be able to shed! SheilaMc7 (talk) 13:41, 17 July 2015 (UTC)

Kudos

Exciting primary scholarly work, and related work here. Would echo an earlier request, and note that a way in which unverifiable information is routinely inserted into WP articles—via visual information that is unsourced, and so essentially editor OR. Anything you can do to set a scholarly standard here, akin to what you are doing daily at work, would be greatly appreciated. Best wishes in building your portfolio toward your promotion.

File:Boswash.png

This is a fantastic map (one of my favorite graphics on Wikipedia, actually), but it's now a bit outdated. The first thing I noticed was that it does not reflect the new alignment of the Vermonter. Also, the density is using 2000 census data. If you get the chance, it would be nice to have an updated version of this graphic.

Obviously, you can't update it every time something on the map no longer exactly reflects facts on the ground, but with newer census data available and a significant realignment of (at least) one piece of the transportation infrastructure shown on the map, perhaps now is a good time?

Thank you for enriching Wikipedia with excellent graphics such as this one.

Request text correction on Republic of Indian Stream map

I really like your map of the Republic of Indian Stream (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Indian_stream_map.png), and I have added a lot of information to the article.

Could you please make a correction to some text on the map? This image needs to have British Province of Quebec changed to British Colony of Lower Canada or simply, Lower Canada. The "British Province of Quebec" ended in 1791, when its eastern part became "Lower Canada." So during the existence of the Republic of Indian Stream, the area to the north was Lower Canada.

Questions regarding American Indian reservations US map

I've made some changes to the Commons page for File:Indian reservations.gif, the exact changes can be found here. I believe they are correct, but since, as per your user page and this you appear to be the author of the file, I wanted to check with you to confirm that they are accurate.
Secondly, the file is currently listed on Commons as being licensed under CC BY 2.0, while the Radical Cartography contact page list that the site's contents are licensed under CC BY-NC-SA 3.0. Can you clarify what licence File:Indian reservations.gif is under?
Finally, would you be willing to upload a larger version of the file to Commons akin to found on the poster?
