Map and coordinates

It is usually not necessary to use the coordinates= parameter, or the optional map_locator= parameter.

  • The latitude and longitude of the station may be specified:
    • in decimal degrees, using latitude= and longitude= OR
    • in degrees/minutes/seconds, using latd=, latm=, lats=, latNS=, longd=, longm=, longs=, and longEW=.
  • To display coordinates at the top of the page, use coordinates_display=yes. Otherwise coordinates will appear in the infobox only.
  • To change the format of the coordinates from DMS to decimal or vice versa, use coordinates_format=dec or coordinates_format=dms.
  • The ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 or ISO 3166-2 region code can often be determined automatically, based on the country= parameter.
    • To override the automatic value, use the iso_region= parameter.

One advantage of omitting the coordinates= and the map_locator= parameters is that you can display a {{Location map}} without duplicating coordinates.

{{Infobox station
| coordinates_display = <!-- non-blank to display coordinates at the top of the page. -->
| iso_region          = <!-- To override any automatically determined region code. -->
| map_type            = <!-- Location from Location map. -->
| map_overlay         = <!-- Overlay image file name, to be placed on top of the main map. Should have the same border coordinates. -->
| AlternativeMap      = <!-- Alternative map file name (changes background map, border coordinates are determined based on the map name); this is only recommended for use in templates. -->
| map_alt             = <!-- Alternative text for map image, see [[WP:ALT]] -->
| map_caption         = <!-- ''map caption''; for no caption enter "caption="; if the parameter is omitted then the caption will be "Marker text (location map name)" -->
| map_size            = <!-- Width of map -->
| map_dot_label       = <!-- Text to be displayed next to dot on map image -->
| map_label_position  = <!-- Override automatic label positioning; valid values are left, right, top, bottom, or none -->
Parameters to specify coordinates in degrees, minutes, and seconds of arc:
{{Infobox station
| latd   = <!-- ''latitude'' degrees -->
| latm   = <!-- ''latitude'' minutes -->
| lats   = <!-- ''latitude'' seconds -->
| latNS  = <!-- latitude: S=south, N=north (default) -->
| longd  = <!-- ''longitude'' degrees -->
| longm  = <!-- ''longitude'' minutes -->
| longs  = <!-- ''longitude'' seconds -->
| longEW = <!-- longitude: W=west, E=east (default) -->
Parameters to specify coordinates in decimal degrees:
{{Infobox station
| latitude  = <!-- ''latitude'' (decimal format; enter negative numbers for southern latitude) -->
| longitude = <!-- ''longitude'' (decimal format; enter negative numbers for western longitude) -->

Note: coordinates in decimal degrees are sensitive to extra whitespace in the parameters:

  • Incorrect: | longitude = - 123.45
  • Correct: | longitude = -123.45

External style template

An external style template may be used to allow the modification of display parameters. This can be the same template that is used in conjunction with Template:S-line, but may be a different template. The |style= parameter is used to specify the name of the template where the styling is defined; the template's name must end with the word "style", but this word must be omitted from the |style= parameter. For example, |style=Amtrak will use the {{Amtrak style}} template.

Parameter Description
name_format Formatting the station name in Infobox station
thcolor Font color for table headings in Infobox station
thbgcolor Background color for table headings in Infobox station

Embedding other infoboxes

The embedded= parameter can be used to embed another infobox with such capability like {{designation list}} and {{infobox NRHP}}.

Old parameters


The following parameters have been obsoleted and will no longer function:

  • baggage_check – Whether bags can be checked
  • facilities – generic facilities parameter; use more specific parameters where possible
  • gates – Type (or presence) of ticket barriers/ gates
  • image_size – Size in pixels of the image of the station
  • local_authority – Local authority or council covering the station
  • smartcardname – name of any smartcard(s) that are or will be available at the station
  • smartcardstatus – "Yes" if smart card is available, or a date (or other information) if available in the future (see Union (TTC) for an example)
  • travelcentre – Whether there is a travel advice centre


The following parameters are deprecated and may be removed in the future:

  • ADA – If any text is placed here a universal symbol for accessibility will appear
  • coordinates – Geographical coordinates of the station using {{coord}} directly
  • map_locator – Allows inclusion of an image of the station location on a map, using {{Location map}} or another method directly

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to an address book. Within the hCard is a Geo microformat, which additionally makes the coordinates (latitude & longitude) parsable, so that they can be, say, looked up on a map, or downloaded to a GPS unit. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.


If the place or venue has an "established", "founded", "opened" or similar date, use {{start date}} unless the date is before 1583 CE.

If it has a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.


hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • county-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • label
  • locality
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • uid
  • url
  • vcard

Geo is produced by calling {{coord}}, and uses HTML classes:

  • geo
  • latitude
  • longitude

Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.


When giving coordinates, please use an appropriate level of precision. Do not use {{coord}}'s |name= parameter.
