Test version of a vectorized Image:Rzeczpospolita 1920.png; more changes will follow, only checking if wiki displays it right


self-made; based on an earlier raster map made in 2005, as well as similar maps made by myself in 2004 (see below).
In preparation of this map I used many other maps as sources and backup. Among them were: a German roadmap of Poland printed in 1938 (colours and the shape of East Prussian border), and (shape of Czechoslovakia), (Polish and German rivers), and perhaps a dozen others.

To do list:

    Done MAKE THE MAP RASTERISE PROPERLY Done add Romania Done scale up the town markers Done add towns and names Done add large city markers for capitals and major cities ( Image:Map pointer black.svg) Done redraw main rivers
      Done Danube Done Vistula Done Dneper Done Oder
  • correct Estonian eastern border
  • Extend the map slightly to the west to include Oder and Nysa rivers (post-war borders of Poland)
  • Add more towns in Germany, Hungary, Estonia, Bolshevist Russia and perhaps Romania
  • Correct rivers in East Prussia and Latvia
  • Add rivers in the east of the map (that's where the legend used to be in the .png map)
  •  ??? any suggestions?
