Template:Location map start

From New World Encyclopedia


Creates a location map as a composite image of an existing map in orthographic projection with a marker and a label superimposed onto it.

Begins with {{Location map start}}, follows {{Location map marker}} and finishes with {{Location map end}} (see usage).

Usage

{{Location map start|location
 |float=left or right or none
 |width=width of the map
}}
{{Location map marker|location
 |lat=latitude in degrees
 |long=longitude in degrees
 |background=color - background color for the label, defaults to none 
 |mark=image file name - a red dot by default
 |mark size= default is 8x8px
 |label=label
 |position=left or right - position of the label relative to the mark, defaults to right
}}
{{Location map end|location
 |caption=caption - caption below the map
}}

Parameter location refers to Template:Location map location containing the name and coordinates of a map. For example Template:Location map Slovenia (backlinks, edit), which in turn refers to Image:Obcine Slovenija 2005.png.

Available maps

List of templates Template:Location map location (here without prefix "Template:"):

Creating new maps

  1. Find an appropriate blank map in an orthographic projection.
  2. Create a template named Template:Location map location (copy the content of any other map template into it and enter appropriate values).

Issues

Doesn't handle longitude properly for maps crossing the +/- 180 meridian yet.

For coordinates with western longitude don't forget the minus sign!

example: {{Location map marker|Westernland|label=Westerntown|lat=46.05|long=-14.5}}

Examples

{{Location map start|Slovenia|float=left|width=100}}
{{Location map marker|Slovenia|label=Ljubljana|lat=46.05|long=14.5}}
{{Location map end|Slovenia|caption=Ljubljana is the capital of Slovenia}}
