Full Version: Please put Kosovo with its own borders
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
Hello,

Please put Kosovo with its borders all over your website, as there are still people sharing your maps through various social networks, presenting it as part of Serbia, something that is terrible and unacceptable to us as citizens of Kosovo.

Once, Kosovo is an independent state since 2008.

Here are the links where Kosovo's state is not displayed at all:

Here the map of Kosovo is presented but not as it really is, more or less it is presented only to separate Kosovo from Serbia when I contacted you for the first time via email in 2016. - https://www.blitzortung.org/en/live_lightning_maps.php?map=10

Here the map of Kosovo is presented as it really is or as it should be. So, you should use this map to fix other maps. - https://www.blitzortung.org/en/live_lightning_maps.php?map=14

Please consider my request as soon as possible!

All the best,

Hello,

Any news please?
The maps are from GMT, OpenStreetMaps and OpenMap Tiles and not under the control of BO. My suggestion is to contact the maintainers of these maps.
Below the maps, see "Disclaimers" and scroll to the bottom.

But if you click on this link https://www.blitzortung.org/en/live_ligh...php?map=14 Kosovo appears within its borders, but if you click on Historical Data (Historical Map) https://www.blitzortung.org/en/historical_maps.php then Kosovo does not appear there, it is the same map. I believe the problem is to you, you should update the maps!

OK, so there does seem to be a slight differance in the basemaps used, this maybe because the historical ones haven't updated or been refreshed.

Yes, so when can you update your map as it relates to you?
I am just a participant, not anyone that has access to the systems beyond the detector I have at my location.

Dupreezd has messaged the owner of the site and I expect when he gets time he will fix it but he has a full time job etc so it might not happen right away.

Ok, I hope it will be fixed as soon as possible on all your websites!
