Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template creates a location map as a composite image of an existing map in equirectangular projection with a marker and an optional label superimposed onto it.

ਨੋਟ:

  • Using caption=example frames the map, while caption= leaves map unframed.
  • The coordinates are not checked. If the coordinates fall outside the map the result is undefined.
  • For a map with no marker, set marksize=1.
  • Do not use px. Using width=200px will cause the map to stretch across page.
  • To create a map with more than one marker, refer to the See also section below.
  • To display a map that uses a non-equirectangular projection (i.e. has curved latitudinal or longitudinal lines) try Template:Location map skew.

ਵਰਤੋਂਸੋਧੋ

Parameter location refers to a map definition template. If location is Spain, the map image and coordinates are based on the values set in Template:Location map Spain.

Creating new map templatesਸੋਧੋ

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