This got me thinking: how does OSM display Kurdistan? It seems, we don't. This relation covers the Iranian province of Kurdistan: https://www.openstreetmap.org/relation/5392650 However there doesn't seem to be any map that covers the entire area.
I realize that it might be hard to map this since the region has no official border, right? I have no local knowledge at all, so I'm really just rising the topic for discussion. Also, there's no way to know if the Turkish government will crack down on OSMF if we do this.
Re: Google deletes map of Kurdistan - can we do better?
Yes, obviously, but is there anything that marks a certain area as Kurdistan? I haven’t found anything.
Google maps doesn’t delete the entire map area but aren’t allowed to show which area is normally called Kurdistan for Turkish citizens since Turkey denies its existance.
