These all look very very nice! I really like all the extra tags present! Kivoy Rog eh? I'll have to google that! :)
A few nit picks about the names of the northern rivers in Sweden. The ones used on the map (Starting from the top: Torneälven, Luleälven, Skellefteälven and down to Umeälven) are more like colloquial names. Their proper names are (from the top):
Skellefte Älv and
Indalsälven and further south are correct.
There are several conflicting notions about the names of these four rivers (and a few more smaller ones), but I have spoken to lots of people living in those areas of Sweden, and they all agree that the names used on the map as it is now *aren't* incorrect, but the ones I have suggested here are *more* correct.
Thanks for the feedback Frederyck !
Hey, weren't these names already corrected a while ago ?
You should reach a concensus, you nordic people !
Indeed, what interst me the most, are the English Exonames for places, that is, the name on English maps. Exceptions may happens though, but the general trend is that English Exonames are used.
About the names you listed, they all have the "Älv" word in common.
Am I right supposing that thë "Älv" word means "River", or "Stream", of something like that ? If so, I'd not put this word on the map, and I'd only put Torne, Lule, Skellefte and Ume. What do you think ?
