To support your request provide links to areas of OGF mapping which showcase your mapping skill. Mapping relevant to the requested theme & geography is especially useful
The {{coord}} template can optionally be used to link to the OGF map - it results in a nice formatted link. Or you can paste in a URL.


https://opengeofiction.net/#map=15/11.9388/-112.7894&layers=B I have mostly worked with detail mapping a small town outside of Example City within the New User zone, but I have also recently begun work on a medium sized town in Michisaukee. https://opengeofiction.net/#map=13/-36.7234/154.4086&layers=B

  • Hi, conditionally approved - I like the application and the mapping so far. However, given the short time so far on the site and no natural mapping, the approval is conditional on review by 12 Oct. Until then limit mapping to within relation 314189. This takes in a swath of urban area, but also a big patch of the rural parts of the state. Thanks/wangi (talk) 21:56, 12 August 2022 (UTC)
  • I have reopened the application, following the deadline. Unfortunately, there are issues with the mapping (lack of rural, lots of motorways, problematic railways), especially the abundance of motorway mapping in an area you specifically identified for rural mapping. Can you select from these three options:
    1. Close out the application, continue to build up mapping experience in other territories
    2. Take on the southern ~half of the state, with a prohibition on mapping further motorways
    3. Take on the northern ~half of the state, with a further three month trial period to showcase rural mapping
  • Let me know your thoughts, thanks/wangi (talk) 12:57, 22 October 2022 (UTC)


Well, for now, I think I'll take the first option and continue my mapping in other territories ThePhrogianOverlord (talk) 02:02, 13 November 2022 (UTC)
