Map of Gambia

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


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

    Name used in the default map caption

  • left = -17.0
    Longitude at left edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • right = -13.6
    Longitude at right edge of map, in decimal degrees
