Geography of Côte d'Ivoire[edit]

Most of these Geography of... articles are pure CIA data dumps, so I tried to make one a decent article. Questions, suggestions, and comments welcome! Neutralitytalk 23:47, Nov 26, 2004 (UTC)

Really good job, Neutrality! I found a couple nits, but they seem really minor -
  • "500m altitude" - should this be elevation?
  • This sentence should probably be recast slightly:
    The southeastern region of Côte d'Ivoire is marked by coastal inland lagoons that starts at the Ghanaian border and stretch 300km (190 miles) along the eastern half of the coast.
  • Lateritic and montane are excellent terms, but I had to look up the former... just wondering if this level of precision is relevant?
  • "party to:" It would really be great if these were linked to the relevant treaties (but how the heck you could find them I have no clue.)
I have never seen a better upgrade of these CIA data dumps. Thanks! - Amgine 03:06, 27 Nov 2004 (UTC)
Good start, Neutrality. It'd be nice to see the last of the CIA dumped material put into prose form, which shouldn't be too hard. However, the best suggestion I can make is to take a look at Geography of Ireland, and copy its format. The Irish article is amazing, and sets up a layout that could be used for practically any country. Ambi 03:31, 27 Nov 2004 (UTC)
