Map of France

Module:Location map/data/France is a location map definition used to overlay markers and labels on an equirectangular projection map of France. The markers are placed by latitude and longitude coordinates on the default map or a similar map image.

Usage

These definitions are used by the following templates when invoked with parameter "France":

Map definition

  • name = France
    Name used in the default map caption
  • bottom = 41
    Latitude at bottom edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • left = -5.8
    Longitude at left edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • right = 10
    Longitude at right edge of map, in decimal degrees

Alternative map

The map defined as image1 (France relief location map.jpg) can be displayed by using the relief or AlternativeMap parameters in {{Location map}}, {{Location map many}} and {{Location map+}}. The use of these two parameters is shown in the examples below. Additional examples can be found at:

Precision

Longitude: from West to East this map definition covers 15.8 degrees.

  • At an image width of 200 pixels, that is 0.079 degrees per pixel.
  • At an image width of 1000 pixels, that is 0.0158 degrees per pixel.

Latitude: from North to South this map definition covers 10.5 degrees.

  • At an image height of 200 pixels, that is 0.0525 degrees per pixel.
