Project anime maps
Scope and aims
Project anime maps covers all articles about Pokémon anime maps. This doesn't mean maps seen in the anime, but maps of locations in the anime created using screenshots from the anime.
To join the project, simply add your name to the bottom of this list:
Please refer to these directions as well as the model below whenever creating a map article.
Each map article should include acreenshots of the area to be mapped from as many angles as possible, using as many common points as possible (a common point would be an object that's common to both screenshots). When selecting a common point please be sure that it's not an object that could be easily moved (when using screenshots from different episodes of the anime) or one that has been moved (when using screenshots from the same episode, as that destroys the point of using a common point. Screenshots should be accompanied by citations indicating the episodes from which each was taken.
Each article should be named in this format: Location (map). Pallet Town (map), Route 24 (map), and S.S. Anne (map) are all good examples. Every map should be made with north at the top, and units should be included at the bottom or on the right side (each square equals 5 feet or every inch equals approximately 3 feet, etc). Units will not be standardized simply because if every inch equaled 4 feet for example, Routes would be too huge and some maps of buildings would be very small and almost unreadable. The main map should be posted right under the name of the article, and submaps should be posted in their own section (Pallet Town would be the main map, Professor Oak's Laboratory would be a submap for the Places of interest section, for example).
The first section will include submaps and it should either be labeled "Buildings" if the location is a city or a route with buildings on it or "Places of interest" if there are no buildings. Obviously, "Places of interest" will be the second section if it wasn't the first. If either section includes a very large building such as Silph Co. or a very large place such as the Safari Zone that would require multiple or large maps, then post the ground floor map of that building or a portion of the map of the large place and provide a redirect link to the main article (such places will get their own articles). Maps of places like these should be named in the same format as the other maps: Location (map). See below for more instructions on how to make seperate articles for individual places or buildings. Indents made below should not be repeated in the articles; they're just for clarification.
As stated above, this should either be labeled "Buildings" or "Places of interest". Exceptions to this are instances where the building or place of interest gets its own article, in which case each section will be named after the floor or section, as appropriate. All other guidelines, such as those regarding common points, apply to these maps.
- ==Name of Building or Place of interest==
This will be where your second map (first after the main map) will be posted. Each building or place of interest at the location must be listed in alphabetical order in the appropriate section along with their maps.
Again, this is to be made if the first section was "Buildings" and all entries must be in alphabetical order.
This is where screenshots of the mapped place should be posted, in their respective sections. Map articles without screenshots may be removed or replaced, as their accuracy can't be confirmed without them. All screenshots must be accompanied by a note citing which episode the shot was taken from, either under the shot or in a list after the shots that has them in order, respectively.
- ==Common points==
Common points are objects or places common to two or more screenshots. They're used to help guage where objects on the map should be placed. Common points cannot be objects that have moved from one screenshot to the next (for example, two different screenshots of a stadium can't use battling Pokémon as common points, since the Pokémon move throughout the battle). There's no point in using a common point unless it's stationary.
Fullscreens are screenshots in which the entire location or section of the location (a whole floor in a building, for example) is captured in a single screenshot. While useful for locating common points, fullscreens generally are zoomed out too far to be very accurate in judging distance and as such will be considered a secondary source to common points, which are usually close-up.
A distant third to fullscreens is the notes section. This section should contain oddball observations and relavent screenshots (the setting sun in a screenshot would accompany a note about the direction that the location is facing, for example). The reason that this is a distant third is that anime physics are sometimes used in various episodes and that setting sun may be there simply for dramatic effect and not because it's truly reflecting the direction the location is facing.
This format is for quick reference only. Before creating an article, the guidelines should be reviewed thoroughly.
- ==Name of building or Place of interest==
- ==Common points==
- To create complete maps of all anime locations as seen in the anime, using screenshots.
- Add maps, once completed, to their respective pages (the map of Pallet Town, for example, would be added to the Pallet Town page).
