    Hey hey. It's been a year and a half, but here's Chongqing.

    I've been staring at maps of Chinese third-level subdivisions for way too long. I know this too well.

    So here's a question. The districts of Chongqing (and the other 3 municipalities) are, properly speaking, 2-level subdivisions. But within the Chinese system they have the status of 3-level divisions. I don't know whether it's more appropriate to color them as 2-level, as I did, or as 3-level.

    I would stay with third-level, since despite being technically second-level they are administratively identical to a regular county. A province-level municipality, on the the other hand, is not identical to a prefecture-level municipality.

    That does make sense, but in the meantime it looks kind of incomplete for those to be the only province-level entities that are not subdivided. It looks especially jarring for Chongqing, since it's so big, just about the only thing of its size on the whole map not to be subdivided.

    Here is an attempt at Beijing and Tianjin. I want to look them over a little more, but later I can add them to the complete MBAM, if people want that.

    I'll add to the above discussion: the rest of the M-BAM doesn't really pay attention to parallel structures within a country, instead just showing simply whether they are first or second level. I'm looking at the wards of the District of Columbia, for example. They're more like the wards of any other US city - so they'd be a fourth-level subdivision if they were in a state - but they're shown as second-level because that's what they are in a literal sense.

    Anyway, I'm glad I finally finished my old claim.

    Beijing looks really weird with the distortion effect.

    It really does. It's definitely not finished yet.

    Does any of these maps have most of the rivers? I've been searching and finding nothing here.

    There is no m-bam with rivers yet no

    is there a ww2 and ww1 version of mbam map? or is this thread dead?
     
  15. AUGGP Well-Known Member

    I dont think there is one yet but not because the thread is dead, just because most people dont even consider the m-bam complete in its current form

    Does anyone happen to be ready to draw the municipalities of South-Africa? I mean, the districts are rather difficult for reference sometimes

    Are we ever going to do historic maps in Mbam? It would help if we want other people to widely use it
