Regions[edit]

MinasGerais MesoMicroMunicip.svg

I'd just like to state my intention to revise the region scheme for Minas Gerais. As a basis, I intend to use the 10 regions the MG government designates for planning purposes, laid out with spiffy maps on the Portuguese Wikipedia. Almost all the articles for this state are in pretty bad shape or not existent at all (no article for Uberaba yet??). I intend to remedy that, but first I'd really like to have clearly defined sub-regions in place.(WT-en) Texugo 12:23, 22 March 2010 (EDT)

Almost exactly 3 years later and we still haven't got a Wikivoyage-style map together for these. I'm going to be doing some work on this state... Texugo (talk) 02:35, 18 March 2013 (UTC)

Regions - Take 2[edit]

OK. Here is what I propose, combining a little further from the above to get down to 9 regions:

I would like to implement this soon so I can further clean up and expand the destinations in this state. It is mostly already implemented anyway. Any comments? Texugo (talk) 20:45, 26 March 2013 (UTC)

  • If it doesn't clutter the map too much, it would be nice to have the rivers, highways, national parks and a few more cities. I suggest adding Araxá, São Roque de Minas, Paracatu, Poços de Caldas and maybe Mariana. 200.252.135.74 21:00, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for your input. Yes, I hope to find time to add those things on the map too. Just made a relatively simple map for now since I'm currently more concentrated on organizing the states, but there is an editable .svg of this on commons now, so either I can do it sometime down the road, or you or anyone else who knows how can feel free to do it.

Also, the South region is the only one which doesn't show a city on the map. What city would be most representative? Texugo (talk) 21:08, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
The most visited and interesting are Poços de Caldas (hydrothermal site) and São Thomé das Letras (hippie hotspot with some good waterfalls). 200.252.135.74 21:18, 26 March 2013 (UTC)
