Mars coords from Wikipedia get patched trough to Google Maps, how to stop?[edit]

I'm noticing now that alternate planets have a "Longitude" and "Latitude" process now being utilised. Is there some way to stop it from presenting those same points on Google Earth? For example: I notice the following article Ister Chaos (Mars) features coordinates which are close to the same coordinates of Barbados on Earth. However, because plain "Longitude/Latitude" are being used it is being picked up on Google Earth and presenting it as Earth. Is there some bit of code that could stop this? With 9 planets it seems like Earth could get pretty full of random non-earthly coords one day.


If you goto the following URL ( https://maps.google.com/maps?q=13.166667,-59.55&ll=13.272026,-57.667236&spn=3.202093,5.817261&t=m&z=8&vpsrc=6&lci=org.wikipedia.en ) then at the right, click on the drop down menu which says "Photos" and then "Wikipedia" it will show a coord out in the water. That's the one that's on Mars.

P.S. I'm also putting this discussion on Google Maps concurrently. - HERE CaribDigita (talk) 03:14, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

It would appear that this template is properly passing the 'globe' parameter with a value of 'mars' as called for by the coord template documentation The GeoHack page for the location [1] doesn't list GoogleMaps as a supported target, so that part is right. It looks like the issue falls to Google Maps to differentiate when reading articles with coordinates.Cander0000 (talk) 08:43, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
