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

Usage[edit]

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

Map definition[edit]

  • name = Brazil
    Name used in the default map caption
  • image1 = Relief Map of Brazil.jpg
    An alternative map image, usually a relief map, can be displayed via the relief or AlternativeMap parameters
  • bottom = -34.0
    Latitude at bottom edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • left = -74.5
    Longitude at left edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • right = -32.0
    Longitude at right edge of map, in decimal degrees

Alternative map[edit]

The map defined as image1 (Relief Map of Brazil.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:
