Help on a Map of Ulster County Historical MarkersEdit

Greetings Map Department.

I've mapped the roadside historical markers in Ulster County, NY, arguably one of the most significant contributions to collecing world knowledge on Wikipedia. But my map doesn't work so well -- a) it's in German, b) opens centered on Russia and c) seems to have a place marker around Sao Tome and Príncipe of the coast of Africa. A little help? I'll then do some maps for all of us. Thanks in advance, -- HighAtop94 (talk) 15:21, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

When you have lists of coordinates like you do, you're better off using {{GeoGroup}}. It does all the hard work for you. I've already swapped it out. –Fredddie 01:36, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
Fredddie, that is so great of you. Huge improvement to have drop down maps in the list. But... what was nice about the map at the top of the page is that it showed the location of the markers relative to eachother, I think that's part of the story too. Is there a way to have both? And, If both, is there a way to have the map of all of the markers a) in English, b) centered on Ulster County, NY and c) not have a marker off the coast of Africa? -- HighAtop94 (talk) 03:37, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
@HighAtop94: are you talking about the WikiMiniAtlas map in the top corner? I don't believe there's anything we can do about that. Toward the bottom of the page, there's a box labeled "Map all coordinates using:" that has a couple map links. You can see all of the markers that way. –Fredddie 22:51, 15 February 2018 (UTC)
