Mapframe map

A Mapframe map is automatically included if:

  • There are coordinates specified on the page's Wikidata item
  • It has not be turned off by setting |mapframe=no

The following optional parameters can then be used to adjust the map

  • |mapframe-zoom= zoom level (default is 10)
  • |mapframe-width= and |mapframe-height= for the map size (defaults are 270 and 200)
  • |mapframe-marker= for the marker icon (default is museum)
  • either |mapframe-marker-color= or |mapframe-marker-colour= for the marker colour (hex triplet, default is #5E74F3)
  • |mapframe-caption= caption below the map
  • |mapframe-lat= and |mapframe-long= (or |mapframe-latitude= and |mapframe-longitude=) – alternate initial latitude and longitude for the map, instead of the museum's coordinates. Specify as a decimal number.

Microformat

The HTML markup 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.

Sub-templates

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.

Classes

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.

Precision

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