|Description||Test version of a vectorized File:Rzeczpospolita 1920.png; more changes will follow, only checking if wiki displays it right|
|Date||11 March 2008|
|Source||Own work; 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 ( )
- Done redraw main rivers
- Done Danube
- Done Vistula
- Done Dneper
- Done Oder
- correct Estonian eastern border (Narva)
- 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)
- Volgograd => Voronezh
- shape of Czarnohora salient (too wide, slightly too short)
- change name cause people look at the file name and think it's "Poland on January 1, 1939" and not "more or less Poland in the inter-war period"
- ??? any suggestions?
