This template is used to mark articles without geolocation data (coordinates) and is easily converted, by adding them, into {{coord}}.

Usage

{{Coord missing|region name}}

Parameters

  • region name

Either one of the country names used in the subcategories of Category:Articles missing geocoordinate data by country, or a smaller area, such as a state or province, where that sub-subcategory exists or is warranted. Where a particular country cannot be identified, one of the continent names used in the subcategories of Category:Articles missing geocoordinate data by continent should be used instead.

The categories are hidden categories. To view hidden categories, one needs to activate them in Special:Preferences. Under "Appearance", there is "Show hidden categories".

Removal of template

The template should be removed when coordinates are added to the article.

A bot occasionally removes it from all articles that already use {{coor URL}}.

Adding coordinates

Quick how to
To add 57°18′22″N 4°27′32″W / 57.30611°N 4.45889°W / 57.30611; -4.45889 to the top of an article, use {{Coord}}, thus:
{{Coord|57|18|22|N|4|27|32|W|display=title}}

These coordinates are in degrees, minutes, and seconds of arc.

'title' means that the coordinates will be displayed next to the title.

To add 44°06′43″N 87°54′47″W / 44.112°N 87.913°W / 44.112; -87.913 to the top of an article, use either
{{Coord|44.112|N|87.913|W|display=title}}

or

{{Coord|44.112|-87.913|display=title}}

These coordinates are in decimal degrees.

  • Degrees, minutes and seconds must be separated by a pipe ("|").
  • Map datum must be WGS84 (except for off-earth bodies).
  • Avoid excessive precision (0.0001° is <11 m, 1″ is <31 m).
  • Latitude (N/S) must appear before longitude (E/W).
Optional coordinate parameters follow the longitude and are separated by an underscore ("_"):

Other optional parameters are separated by a pipe ("|"):

  • display
    |display=inline (the default) to display in the body of the article only,
    |display=title to display at the top of the article only, or
    |display=inline,title to display in both places.
  • name
    name=X to label the place on maps (default is PAGENAME)

Thus: {{Coord|44.117|-87.913|dim:30_region:US-WI_type:event

|display=inline,title|name=accident site}}

Use |display=title (or |display=inline,title) once per article, for the subject of the article, where appropriate.
