Map of Tanzania

Module:Location map/data/Tanzania is a location map definition used to overlay markers and labels on an equirectangular projection map of Tanzania. 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 "Tanzania":

Map definition

  • name = Tanzania
    Name used in the default map caption
  • bottom = -13
    Latitude at bottom edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • left = 28
    Longitude at left edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • right = 42
    Longitude at right edge of map, in decimal degrees

Alternative map

The {{Location map}}, {{Location map many}}, and {{Location map+}} templates have parameters to specify an alternative map image. The map displayed as image1 can be used with the relief or AlternativeMap parameters. Examples may be found below or in the following:

Precision

Longitude: from West to East this map definition covers 14 degrees.

  • At an image width of 200 pixels, that is 0.07 degrees per pixel.
  • At an image width of 1000 pixels, that is 0.014 degrees per pixel.

Latitude: from North to South this map definition covers 13.25 degrees.

  • At an image height of 200 pixels, that is 0.0663 degrees per pixel.
  • At an image height of 1000 pixels, that is 0.0133 degrees per pixel.

Examples using location map templates

Location map, using default map (image)

Dodoma is located in Tanzania

Dodoma (Tanzania)
{{Location map | Tanzania
| width   = 250
| lat_deg = -6.17
| lon_deg = 35.74
| label   = Dodoma
}}

Location map many, using relief map (image1)

Location map/data/Tanzania is located in Tanzania
Dodoma
Dodoma
Mwanza
Mwanza
Two locations in Tanzania
{{Location map many | Tanzania
| relief   = yes
| width    = 250
| caption  = Two locations in Tanzania
| lat1_deg = -6.17
| lon1_deg = 35.74
| label1   = Dodoma
| pos1     = bottom
| lat2_deg = -2.52
| lon2_deg = 32.90
| label2   = Mwanza
| pos2     = bottom
}}

Location map+, using AlternativeMap

Mwanza
Two locations in Tanzania
{{Location map+ | Tanzania
| AlternativeMap = Tanzania relief location map.svg
| width   = 250
