Maaiza, Eureisia

The detailedly and intricately mapped city of Maaiza, by JBstad1. --tule00 19:52, 15 March 2016 (CET)

This is nice but I think it should have more detail before it's featured, also it has real-world brands like fnac, Apple Store, H&M etc. Myrcia (talk) 23:55, 26 December 2016 (CET)
I moved the nomination further down for the reasons mentioned above; right now it looks like a "work in progress" anyway, I'm curious to see how it will develop in the future :)Leowezy (talk) 19:37, 31 January 2017 (CET)

River Plate, Demacia

Ragekwa creates great towns and places with many details. Especially the industrial areas are quite perfect, the nominated map also contains amazing landscape. --Mstr (talk) 00:23, 16 January 2017 (CET)

Personally I am not comfortable with this nomination - the mapper's technique involves "collage" of real world locations downloaded from OSM. We (admin) have decided to tolerate this, after repeated debates, because it is not generally individually identifiable, but I don't feel it meets the "originality" standard we expect for a main page feature, and if outside users see OSM work being featured (however much it has been altered or "collaged") it could cause misunderstandings.--Happy mapping - Luciano (talk) 04:23, 25 February 2017 (CET)

Latina (Ciudad) - Barrio # 2

Loading map...

Histor mapped a very detailed area in Latina's capital, featuring detailed building footprints and many small shops and businesses. Leowezy (talk) 15:54, 24 February 2017 (CET)

Geolympiad City, Kirchenburg

Loading map...

A really pleasantly detailed Geolympic park being created for the Kirchenburg 2020 Summer Geolympiad Proposal. I'm not sure if it's finished yet but I want to nominate it now as it will be a while before it is featured. Fantastic work by User:Friedrich Kirchen Myrcia (talk) 13:41, 14 April 2017 (CEST)

Great work! A good guidline for all Geolympiad proposals and also sports facilities! I suppose Kirchenburg itself an its suburbs should be developed as well (like the center), but there is enough time left. --Mstr (talk) 15:58, 15 April 2017 (CEST)

"3D buildings", Puntick, Yuris

There is a lot of detailed areas and map in areas close to this, but take a look in this "3D buildings" by yuriyhlmacof!!! How creative OGF user can be? hehehe!!! ;-) -- BMSOUZA (talk) 02:27, 20 April 2017 (CEST)

Discussion of Чара: impressive mapping of a nice and well developed country

{{#MultiMaps: center = 41.2370,90.5788 | height = 500px | zoom = 11 | maxzoom = 12 | minzoom = 10 }}

The exotic and well-developed country of Chara by Danny11 makes me wish I could read Russian.--Luciano (talk) 23:14, 19 February 2015 (CET)

I'm impressed by Chara (and I like the other nominations proposed here). I'm able to read Russian, but I think now that one day we should create a separate layer in OGF where the international "Ingerish" names are being displayed. But this would require all users (especially those who don't use Latin characters) to add the name:en tag (or a comparable one) to their places. --Joschi81 (talk) 13:26, 22 February 2015 (CET)
I started out using name:en along with name tags in my Korean areas, but I didn´t like how it behaved in JOSM where it used my system's default language (which is English, for other purposes and needs), thus hiding all the naming work I was doing in Korean. So I quit using name:en tags and deleted the ones I had. Lately, just to make my locations "exotic", I've been double-labeling important locations in Korean and Spanish in the name tag(e.g. "name=영광시 (Ciudad Gloria)"), with an int_name tag for Romanization of the Korean. I'm not sure if this is the "right" way to do it but I like the result.--Luciano (talk) 14:06, 22 February 2015 (CET)
I think that it is a good way how you did it. :) --Joschi81 (talk) 14:23, 22 February 2015 (CET)
I think, we can accept not only latin letters, but too greek or cyrillic ("russian"). This are for many people to read and are both not far from latin letters. Problems I have with hebraic or arabic letters or chinese. --Histor (talk) 13:51, 22 February 2015 (CET)
I think we should allow users to use whatever characters they like. But it would be nice for other users to make both original and Latin name appear on the map as Luciano did it within one part of the Ardisphere. --Joschi81 (talk) 14:23, 22 February 2015 (CET)

I removed Isleño's nomination of my Estrecho Gómez region because I am being perfectionistic and want to still make changes.--Luciano (talk) 03:50, 23 March 2015 (CET)
