Note: This template is used on a lot of pages. In order not to put too much load on the servers, edits should be kept to a bare minimum. Please discuss proposed changes on the talk page first.
  • Editing a template causes all pages that use the template to be re-rendered. If the template is used often, this can put a lot of load on the servers since it fills up the job queue.
  • Keep in mind that templates that are used on file description pages also show up on other wikis.
  • This page has been protected from editing to prevent vandalism. Only administrators can edit it. Get their attention by placing {{edit protected}} at the talk page.

Syntax #1: decimal degrees

Template used for geocoding Commons images, providing camera location using decimal or degrees/minutes/seconds (DMS) syntax. See Commons:Geocoding for more information.

{{Location}} is the main template of the {{Object location}} and {{Globe location}} family and is supposed to be used to define the coordinates and heading of the location of the camera.

The template automatically sets the following categories: Depending on namespace:

In case of errors:

Usage

{{Location |1= |2= |3= }}

Should be placed directly above or below {{Information}}, {{Artwork}} or other similar template.
Note: some users prefer to include location template(s) into the "Description" field of {{Information}} template in order to group all location information together – objections are in point of graphic design not ideal adjusted for such use. See this and this discussion.

attributes
attributesInformation attributes - used to pass to GeoHack server metadata about the coordinates. Apart from heading, this information is not used by {{Location}} template. Attributes have to be in the format field1:value1_field2:value2_field3:value3, etc. The following fields are supported:
  • region:XX-YYY specifies the political region, used to select appropriate map resources. See here for more info.
  • XX is an ISO 3166-1 alpha 2 country code abbreviation, and
  • YYY is a 1-, 2- or 3- characters ISO 3166-2 (see en:ISO 3166-2#Format for details) province/region/state code abbreviation (typically the same as a local postal code abbreviation).
  • heading: indicates the direction in which the camera was pointing. It is given as degree values 0–360 (clockwise with north as 0) or a compass point abbreviation (up to four letters) as defined in Points of the compass. (Example: heading:NW). It should be very similar for both {{Location}} and {{Object location}} templates when used in the same image. For example "heading:N" means that the camera was pointing North when the photograph was taken. In case of {{Object location}} template that might mean that we are looking at a South wall/side of the structure/object.
  • scale:N specifies the desired map scale as 1:N. Since most images are at the lowest scale, the parameter should be given only if values different from the default are desired. See here for more info.
  • dim:<width><units> specifies the width of the object in meters or kilometers (example: dim:120m or dim:10km). Since most images are at the lowest scale, the parameter should be given only if values different from the default are desired. See here for more info.
  • source: where the data come from
  • class:object is a hard-coded value which will be added automatically to all images to tag this location as the "object" location.

secondarysecondarysecondary=1 will tag this set of coordinates as secondary. This template calls {{#coordinates:}} parser function, one of the parameters of which is primary vs. secondary label. Primary coordinates define file's camera location and are the default, but each file can only have single primary location tag.emptyoptional
precprecisionBy default the georeference precision is about 0.3 meters or 1/100 of a second on the equator. To show less digits add parameter "prec" with a measurement precisions expressed in meters. For example 40 meter uncertainty would be expressed as "prec=40". At the moment this parameter only affects the display of the coordinates.0.3optional
