I am using citypopulation.de data for each country, not the default 1 million+ agglomeration map. The cities are organised by urban area population.

Two errors in my answers which have fixed. I didn't realise the population figures for Italy were by city proper, and while it is harder to find urban area statistics for Italian cities, I ended up using Wikipedia as a secondary source. Sorry about that, everyone.

My apologies if the title is coma-inducing, it was hard to put what this quiz is about into words.

My criteria for choosing countries was based on how many cities were famous in the country and imagery on the flag (ie no complex shapes).

A very minor detail, but if for every answer row, if you will change Padding-Vertical for row to 3, it would make the color boxes more like square, unlike the current rectangle. Although this is completely optional, square boxes might look better than Rectangles. I tried it by copying the quiz, and it was looking good.

Nice quiz, it was great to play. I have a couple of suggestions: 1) could you please add in the description that you're using "city proper", I had a hard time thinking of urban areas (e.g.: Naples is bigger than Rome, The Hague is bigger than Amsterdam, etc.) 2) Is it possible to have "Ahrus" as an alternative spelling for Aahrus? I'm always confused, as the Danish name is Åhrus, so there's only one "A".

Do you have Inkscape? On Inkscape you have the option to draw via placing nodes. Just click to outline the shape. You can use/modify the free SVG maps or you can trace another image. You can also copy my quiz so that you can download and look at the map. I used some simple yet nonstandard tricks to make the colours appear as they do.

A while ago, I wanted to take a quiz with this SVG. After a failed attempt in SVG Minify, I tried it with Inkscape, but I didn't understand almost anything. And thank you! I went to the site you indicated and found an SVG from Brazil. I downloaded it and it appeared in PDF. Where can I get SVG data? And you can answer me as soon as you can!

Level 65
Aug 31, 2020
Everything can be created via Inkscape/Notepad+. All you need is to attach an ID and a class to each state. ID's can be modified via Inkscape, and should match up to the first column in the quiz editor. On the other hand, I only know how to add classes in Notepad+. If you attach "class=border" under each ID then the borders will be smooth when you zoom in.
+2
Level 18
Aug 31, 2020
OK, so do I get the ID’s in Inkscape? I will see this Notepad+. I will only be able to see your message tomorrow.
+1
Level 65
Aug 31, 2020

The ID's are anything you want them to be and are alreayd attached to the state/region/other path. Here is a screencap I took, the ID is highlighted in blue, which you should type in the hint column on your quiz.

Paths-----Country

ca----------Canada

+2
Level 18
Sep 1, 2020
FOR EVERYTHING!? So the path "Aaaaaaaa" can correspond to Moldova for example (this was random)? How I get the information of the SVG?
+1
Level 65
Sep 1, 2020
If you change it to that then sure it can be. I recommend keeping your ID's all lower case letters, however. If you open Inkscape you can find all you need on the XML folder (this can be found on the first column on the right of Inkscape and is the icon with the box and <> arrows). You do not have to change the ID's at all, I only do it so that because it's easier to type 'canada', 'australia', etc. than 'path4867'. What is most important is that you add class=border to each path in Notepad++, and you may want to change the colour of different states/regions on your map via 'Fill and Stroke' (which can be found right above XML editor).
+1
Level 65
Sep 1, 2020
I don't quite remember how Inkscape looks once you first install it so I've given more precise instruction.
+2
Level 18
Sep 1, 2020

OK. What is class = border for? Can you also give me more information about Notepad and Fill and Strok? You didn't answer one of my questions (or if so, I didn't understand), but I shouldn't have explained it properly.

Do you know about the site you referred me to, with all those SVG's? I opened one and downloaded it. It was in PDF. Where will I get his information?

Example: With the file that I showed you, I went to Minify to try to reduce it. He gave me many letters and numbers that corresponded to the SVG. I pasted it into Notepad and saved the file to send to Jetpunk. How do I do this with the website you refer? Do I have to decrease it too to get the information?

+1
Level 65
Sep 1, 2020

I'm not sure I understood your earlier question, as there is no need to get information for the SVG. class=border tells Jetpunk what each path is, and while not technically necessary, it is important if you want your map to have clean borders whn zooming in.

On that website, all you have to do is click download and it should give you an SVG file. There is no need to reduce anything unless it exceeds 600KB (I still don't know how to reduce an SVG, as I find it hard to exceed the limit). I'm not sure I understand why it gives you a PDF file, as my technical knowledge is limited to what I learned while making maps for Jetpunk.

+1
Level 65
Sep 1, 2020

Here is an example of an SVG in Notepad++. You may add the class to each path as shown in the image. I usually use ctrl+f to find and replace inkscape:connector-curvature="0" with class=border since the first is reduntant (not important, but saves loads of time). I also recommend editing in Inkscape first and then Notepad++, otherwise the formatting in Notepad++ might be in a less straightforwards layout.

Once again, I only ever needed two programs for any given map, from start to finish.

@Jiaozira, I use a computer for this. When he downloads it, he opens a PDF and asks to open it. Then the SVG appears, understand?

I heard there might be a way to edit maps via a browser site, but I don't know how it works, and I strongly recommend just downloading the progam of Inkscape itself. It is easy to download. You will need a PC regardless.

I have a Windows (I think the 7). How to download Inkscape? Will the program appear on your computer screen (like Paint, Google, Internet Explorer, Microsoft Word ...)? Or is the download not done like this? I don't think it's such a good idea. I advise you to see this link. He will take you to Stewart's blog talking about the SVG update, I did a real interrogation of him (and DodomaAstatine, who in the end got into the conversation). I practically didn't need to download it.
+1
Level 65
Sep 2, 2020
The download link is here, just choose your vesion. It is just like any other program such as the ones you mentioned. I saw the link you posted, and while perhaps you can draw SVG's via your browser, I don't see a point in that if you are able to download the application.
+1
Level 18
Sep 2, 2020
Hmm... after the download, what I do?
+1
Level 65
Sep 2, 2020
It shouldn't be complicated after that, it's the same as any other program and there are basic instructions if I remember correctly (I've had to download Inkscape three times before). And once Inkscape is installed you can open the SVG.

Sep 3, 2020
Ahhh! I think I already know why I managed to download it! I used the online version of Inkscape, and joined the GIMP part! Can I do it like that? I really have concerns about downloading Inkscape on my computer, since I can't do it with my cell phone...
+1
Level 65
Sep 3, 2020
I know nothing about the online verison of Inkscape, but I'm sure it is similar to the application itself. I'm sure a modern mobile phone is powerful enough to run Inkscape, I doubt it uses much memory at all. I'm sure it would be the interface that makes a mobile version of Inkscape impossible, you just can't do enough with just a touch screen. I am certain that any PC could download Inkscape without any difficulty. The entire program is only a few megabytes anyhow. You could use the online site, but if you do I'm not sure how I could help you considering that's all unfamiliar to me.
+1
Level 18
Sep 3, 2020
OK, I'm going to test the on-line version, and after, I show you the results. If I download the Inkscape, how to I do after? I don't know what I do with the information of the SVGs.

Sep 6, 2020
I recommend that you copy a featured quiz that includes a map. From there you can also download its map. You might get a better idea how it works that way. And don't be afraid to experiment, that's how I learned map-making when it was introduced as a Jetpunk feature.

No need to apologise, it doesn't matter what kind of geography you are working with, so long as you have the ID's and classes for each answer on your quiz (ie. don't put the ID of states if the quiz is about cities on the map of Brazil. However, you should still add classes to the states or else the borders won't look nice when you zoom).
