Regions vs atolls vs islands[edit]

The way the Maldives are set up really plays havoc with Wikitravel's normal "destination" model -- (almost) every resort occupies its own island, which would normally mean that every resort would get its own article, but that's just stupid. So I've split the country into the official regions and propose listing resorts directly on the region pages -- see Kaafu for an example. Opinions? Jpatokal 05:46, 15 July 2007 (EDT)

That sounds reasonable – cacahuate talk 20:02, 15 July 2007 (EDT)


The map looks good! The regionbox colors should be synced to it though, and Gan should be tagged as well, perhaps in parentheses after Hithadhoo? Jpatokal 02:24, 13 January 2010 (EST)

Believe it or not, those colors were all eyedropped right from the regions—they just looked totally different surrounded by white than by that sea blue color on the map. A bit of painstaking color adjustments by eye, and I think it now looks right. --Peter Talk 13:56, 13 January 2010 (EST)
Awesome map, this country has a strange shape.. --globe-trotter 14:17, 13 January 2010 (EST)
