Navigation template Use this navbox in articles relating to regions, counties, cities, towns, villages, and CDPs of a specific county. Place it directly under the Massachusetts navigation box at the bottom of article pages. The example is for Middlesex.
Infobox Use this for articles relating to Massachusetts cities, towns or any other type of settlement. Most fields are optional - see the template page for more details. (Also known as "Infobox City" or "Infobox Town")
In the Infobox Template:Infobox City, there is a place for an image showing the town's place in the state. Can someone advise the rest of us on creating such images?
Yes. I just added an image file showing the outlines of Massachusetts towns and cities. When you add the Townbox to an article, download this image, fill in the town's borders with pure red color (using a program like Photoshop or any other that can handle .png files), and then upload the file with the name "Ma_towns_TOWNNAMEHERE.png" replacing "TOWNNAMEHERE" with the name of the town.
I got this image from a Massachusetts government web site, so I assume that it is public domain.--AaronS 16:32, 13 November 2005 (UTC)
As a side effect of making a map for Scouting in Massachusetts, I now have an SVG map of the townships in Massachusetts. This is (a) easy to scale and (b) use as a basis for other maps. It is based on the [Libre Map project] and so should be ok on the copyright (BY-SA creative commons). Hope it might be useful.--Erp (talk) 21:47, 8 December 2008 (UTC)
