Maze Generator

This seemed like the perfect opportunity to show that I could actually do something useful on the computer (in his eyes), so I decided to put together a maze generator. Maze generation is actually relatively trivial and it is often one of the first examples of a recursive algorithm given to computer science students. Template:Image generation.

A quick introduction This file has annotations. Move the mouse pointer over the image to see them. Acceptable licenses A copyright license is a formal permission stating who may use a copyrighted work and how they may use it. This cartoon explains why Commons does not accept "noncommercial" licenses. All copyrighted material on Commons (not in the public domain) must be licensed under a free license that specifically and irrevocably allows anyone to use the material for any purpose; simply writing that "the material may be used freely by anyone" or similar isn't sufficient. Sometimes, authors wish to release a lower quality or lower resolution version of an image or video under a free license, while applying stricter terms to higher quality versions.

Graphics Lab

Wikigraphists work to improve the quality of the images that have been proposed by the community. This involves work such as extracting key elements from photos, improving the color of images or emphasizing the main subject, 'stitching' multiple images together and often vectorizing images (converting to SVG). We also create new drawings, diagrams and maps when requests are made to do so. Interested in helping out? Can't draw a thing? Category:Images for cleanup. Category:Images with watermarks.

Getting SVGs to render correctly can be tricky, but SVG Check can help (GUI slightly outdated).

SVG Check is a Wikimedia Labs-based tool designed to make the uploaders of files in the SVG (.svg) format a little easier. As it stands, MediaWiki converts files in the format into PNG (.png) files before display, for a number of reasons. This process produces a number of quirks and idiosyncrasies which have, in the past, required repeated uploading and general help to sort out.

SVG Check eases this process by allowing users to preview the eventual display of an SVG without going through the formality of uploading it, and without creating a permanent record of the potentially botched version. It can also be set to scan the file for errors, and present advice specific to that problem. File:Test.svg. Help:SVG. Official logo for the SVG file format SVG (scalable vector graphics) is an accepted file format on Wikimedia Commons. It is suited to diagrams, maps, and other non-photographic images. SVG is highly appreciated on Commons because it describes graphical objects with a sourcecode and thus currently provides the best way to modify and improve content. SVG files are used extensively on Wikimedia Commons. Here are a few tips to get started. Clustering Map Symbols. These maps demonstrate the map symbol clustering features built into Kartograph.js. They all show the same dataset of UK cities sized by the number of people that have visited this website in 2012. no clustering — The first map shows the +500 symbols without clustering.

London (2k visits) is completely covered by hundreds of cities with only a few visitors. Local maxima such as Leeds and Manchester are hidden, too. k-means — Symbols are combined using k-Means clustering. Noverlap — Here symbols are combined only if they overlap, as described here.
