MapEdit

Maps are wrong. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.107.104.41 (talk) 21:48, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Would you care to be more specific?   — Jeff G. (talk|contribs) 21:57, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Look at Turkish page of Aegean region. That map is true one and for example in balıkesir page, you say burhaniye, ayvalık.... in aegean region. However if you look their pages, some of them were shown like in marmara region. in your map show, if centrum of province in X region. All province were shown like in X region, but province's other part can be inY region. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.107.104.41 (talk) 22:09, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Do you have a link to a correct map? Thanks!   — Jeff G. (talk|contribs) 22:13, 9 November 2008 (UTC)

Major changes/correctionsEdit

MapsEdit

Right now, these maps are used in the article:

These maps are quite simply incorrect; the borders of the geographical regions of Turkey do not overlap with the borders of the administrative provinces.

This is the correct map of the geographical Aegean Region:

Provinces in the Aegean RegionEdit

Since the borders do not overlap, there can be no clear-cut list of provinces in the Aegean Region.

Right now, this list is featured in the article:

This list is also incorrect.

If we want to list the provinces in the Aegean Region, we will need at least two, but preferable three categorizies:

  1. Provinces that are entirely in the Aegean Region.
  2. Provinces that are mostly in the Aegean Region.
  3. Provinces that are partially in the Aegean Region.

According to this map, which shows both geographical and provincial borders, the correct list should be as follows:

Provinces in the Aegean Region

Provinces that are entirely in the Aegean Region:

Provinces that are mostly in the Aegean Region:

Provinces that are partially in the Aegean Region:

PopulationEdit

Since the geographical borders are imprecise (they don't overlap with district borders either), there is no convenient way to calculate the population of the geographical Aegean Region, or other geographical regions of Turkey for that matter. Any figure you see on the Internet in this regard is, at best, imprecise guesswork. I propose that we rank geographical regions among themselves and leave it at that. --Mttll (talk) 10:16, 20 January 2015 (UTC)

New infobox suggestionEdit

It is actually meant to be used for countries, but I believe it serves its purpose very well here. Eagerly waiting for comments. --Mttll (talk) 15:48, 4 February 2015 (UTC)
