Changing map[edit]

Hello, I feel like this map would be better to use in the article. Thoughts? — CuriousGolden (talk·contrib) 07:16, 21 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Map of the geographic region of Anatolia.png

Not a big fan, even more so for a geographical subject: at least a topographical map as we have in the page now gives some idea of what Anatalia looks like. पाटलिपुत्र Pat (talk) 07:53, 21 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I think it would be better, especially considering that the map is more in line with Wikipedia stylistically and the article already has a geography section, so the current map would work better there. Steve From The Financial Department (talk) 19:39, 26 July 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Thanks for your input. Since this seems to be the only reply in a while, does anyone else have a problem with the map being added? — CuriousGolden (talk·contrib) 20:23, 3 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I will add the map as per WP:BOLD. If anyone has any problems with it, you can address it here. — CuriousGolden (talk·contrib) 10:54, 20 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This map looks much better than the one used before, it would be better if this one is used on the article. Danloud (talk) 18:14, 28 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I was thinking of replacing the current image with this orthographic projection, thoughts? Svenurban (talk) 12:03, 1 July 2021 (UTC) Anatolia (orthographic projection).svgReply[reply]

Cilicia is not part of Anatolia and it is more associated with Syria. Although Cilicia is part of the peninsula, high mountains between Cilicia and Anatolia were difficult to pass throughout the history. Anatolia (East) term was coined for areas at the peninsula except Cilicia. I suggest Cilicia to be removed from the Anatolia map.Seyhan668 (talk) 10:20, 3 May 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Southeastern Anatolia Region and Eastern Anatolia Region missing from the current map?[edit]

Is there a reason to remove most of Southeastern Anatolia Region and Eastern Anatolia Region from the map? Khestwol (talk) 12:16, 2 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

It isn't a part of Anatolian peninsula, just called Anatolia by Turkish government. Beshogur (talk) 18:17, 28 September 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
And why wouldn't that be incorporated? Regions and definitions change all the time. Especially when there are no precisely indicated hard borders. ~~ — Preceding unsigned comment added by Randam (talkcontribs) 20:25, 3 January 2021 (UTC)Reply[reply]
See past discussions and the explanation in the article. The map reflects general geographical usage but there is an explanation of the political usage as well. DeCausa (talk) 06:25, 3 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
