Description:
The Capitols category has been created to Waymark the central government building of a country or a state, provincial or equivalent principle division of a country. This is not for counties, municipalities, local governments, or other smaller divisions of territory.
Expanded Description:
This category has been created to Waymark the central government building of a country or a state, provincial or equivalent principle division of a country. This is not for counties, municipalities, local governments, or other smaller divisions of territory.

Capitols are a unique reflection of the people, culture, and society of the of of which they are the seat of government. Whether a national capitol or that of a state, province or other equivalent jurisdiction, they are representation of the people of a nation or a state or province, its history, its government structure, and its culture.

Each of these capitols are unique and historic and should be waymarked and visited.

The distinction between capitol and capital is very important. A capitol is a building that serves as the seat of government for a nation, state, province or equivalent. A capital is a town or city that serves as a seat of government.

The intent of this category is to waymark current Capitols, not historic ones. While former capitols are historic and very interesting, this category is not meant to include them.
Instructions for Posting a Capitol Buildings Waymark:
Name: The name of the country, or principal division thereof should be included in the title. Please also include the city in which the capitol is located. Please use the following examples: US Capitol, Washington, DC; Washington Legislative Building, Olympia, Washington; Korean National Assembly Building, Seoul, Korea; or British Columbia Parliament Buildings, Victoria, BC.

1. Coordinates obtained from your personal GPS readings. These should be taken from the main entrance to the building. If this is impossible for any reason, please state this in your description.


2. At least one photograph -- a view showing the entire building, or major portion thereof. If the capitol has a major architectural feature, a photo of that would be great as well. For example, if you're waymarking the British Parliament you could show Big Ben, if you're waymarking the North Dakota State Capitol, you'd show the office tower. GPSr photo is NOT required.


3. Narrative description -- Include as much information about your capitol you are waymarking as you can-- its history, significance of its name, memorials, etc. -- whatever is applicable. Focus on what is unique and reflects the local culture. You are encouraged to provide additional photos for the gallery, but this is not required.

3a. Please DO NOT simply copy a Wikipedia article or other source material for your description. We're trying to get historical information on the capitol, but we're also trying to find out why you think it's special.


4. Variables -- NOT ALL variables listed are required.
Instructions for Visiting a Waymark in this Category:
Post one photo of the capitol that includes either a GPSr and/or the waymarker along with the capitol in the picture.

Please also tell us about your visit.
