- Just to clarify, this means you were right to move Tinsel Towers to West Vinewood, but wrong to move Eclipse Towers to Rockford Hills. smurfy (coms) 04:34, May 2, 2015 (UTC)
Re: Location problems
Hello again. Sorry for taking so long to reply. It has been a busy weekend with real work and I have been trying to get my Lifeinvader template built.
The official map should be followed for the neighbourhoods it has defined. Obviously it doesn't define all of the smaller neighbourhoods within the larger ones, like Burton as you rightly point out, or the likes of Mirror Park (also in "Vinewood") or Davis (part of South Los Santos) or La Mesa (East Los Santos), while tiny areas like Morningwood and Backlot City are defined.
Unfortunately, the in-game GPS HUD display is wildly inaccurate for mapping as it can depend on the direction you are travelling when it changes display (if it changes at all in some cases).
A pretty good rule to follow is that if the area's border is specified on the official map, that must be used as it can be officially proved. Smaller (unofficially defined) areas are defined by a combination of factors including in-game mapping and GPS, snapmatic geotagging and logical discussion between editors interested in mapping accuracy.
As far as the specific question about the marina area in Vespucci, it is Puerto Del Sol, which is part of Vespucci, not La Puerta. There is a difference. It looks like some locations do still mention La Puerta and some of those are incorrect as far as I'm concerned. There has been prior discussion about this area (see here). If you want to change any of them, check the article talk page for any prior discussion and raise it if it has not previously been discussed. smurfy (coms) 12:07, May 3, 2015 (UTC)
