Template:Location dec/doc

From Wikimedia Commons, the free media repository
Jump to: navigation, search

Template used for geocoding Commons images, providing camera location using decimal notation. See Commons:Geocoding for more information.

The template automatically sets the following categories: Category:Media with locations or Category:Media with erroneous locations

Usage

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

Should be placed directly below {{Information}}, {{Artwork}} or other similar template. If {{Object location}} template is also present than it should be placed below this template.

Template parameters

Parameter Description Default Status
1 Degrees of Latitude empty required
2 Degrees of Longitude empty required
3 Information attributes - used to pass to GeoHack server metadata about the coordinates. Apart from heading, this information is not used by {{Location dec/doc}} 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.
  • class:object is a hard-coded value which will be added automatically to all images to tag this location as the "object" location.
  • type:camera is hard-coded value which will be added automatically to all images. Please do not add other "type" parameters
empty optional
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. Use this parameter to define coordinates as secondary. empty optional
