You can request maps on this page. Your request will then be handled by a participant of the maps department. Instructions and guidelines are provided below. Requests will typically be handled by a member of the maps department; however, they can be completed by anyone willing to take on the request.

Guidelines

Important If you can create a KML file for the article, please do so, and note the existence of the KML in your request. KML files can be imported into GIS software, which may significantly expedite your request.

  • Please be respectful. There is a limit of one requested map per editor and 5 requested maps per state at any time. This is to give the map creators enough time to create the requested maps while working at their own pace and leisure. Please do not request another map until previous requests have closed unless:
    1. The additional requests are the result of a GAN, FAC, or ACR reviewer holding or opposing an article in one of those venues over the lack of a map or
    2. One month has passed since the request was filed.
    3. Any additional requests that do not meet either of these criteria will be removed.
  • We ask that articles be improved to the "B-Class" assessment level before requesting a map. You may request a map for any article, but articles that are B-Class or higher will have their request expedited.
  • Requests for articles assessed as Stub-Class will be removed after three months if it has not been filled and the article has not been improved to at least Start-Class by that time.
