Dynamic maps

Is there a way to have two different map masks on one map, for the Nakatsugawa map I want to have all of Nakatsugawa highlighted but Magome in Yellow with a title showing it has a different article, is this possible. Tai123.123 (talk) 05:32, 21 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Erm, not sure. I believe SelfieCity is much more familiar with that given that I don't usually work with map masks. SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 05:33, 21 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Why not? I have mapshapes for all national parks that have them available via wikidata at Finnish National Parks. You may have to play around with the parameters to get them work together as you want; I haven't been trying this. –LPfi (talk) 09:27, 21 September 2021 (UTC)[]
just you so you know one has wiki data and has hand made coords Tai123.123 (talk) 01:07, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Also they overlap. Tai123.123 (talk) 01:08, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[]
There is Geo JSON data, but I don’t know much about this. I think @Renek78, Matroc: may be experts. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 02:28, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Madrid has a map with Wikidata items and self-made GeoJSON in it. Maybe this could help as a reference?--Renek78 (talk) 07:05, 22 September 2021 (UTC)[]
[edit conflict] If Magome is within Nagatsugawa, there should be no problem: you have the mapframe, a mapmask greying out anything outside, and a mapshape in yellow for Magome. Something like (untested):
{{mapframe|...}}
{{mapmask |group=Nagatsugawa}}
{{mapshape|type=geoshape |fill=#ffff00 |title=Magome |wikidata=Q21077757 |opacity=0.2}}
I suppose the group parameter refers to a maplink name; if you include the coords as mapmask parameters that connection is not needed. You can connect the mask to a json file at Common or the json code in a <maplink group="Nagatsugawa"></maplink> at the end of the article page. Perhaps you need to use mapshape instead of mapmask. The templates are not well documented, you could try to use parameters of one of them in the other. Without knowing where you have your coords I don't want to do any experimenting.

@LPfi Still not working, you can see my coords on the nakatsugawa page, I want the wikidata highlighted and the coords grayed out, thank you. Tai123.123 (talk) 03:02, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]
I'm actually fine with magome not being listed. Tai123.123 (talk) 23:08, 25 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Ķemeri National Park

As always, it is a pleasure working with you. Ground Zero (talk) 00:52, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[]

Same. Always been a pleasure :-). Was interesting to see how this article began because of a banner... SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 00:57, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[]
Yeah, I think that national parks should always have articles, and since there was a nice banner ready for it, creating an article made so much sense . Ground Zero (talk) 01:12, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[]
I do need to create about 200 more park articles though ;-). A slow work in progress SHB2000 (talk | contribs | meta.wikimedia) 01:13, 26 September 2021 (UTC)[]
