Map and coordinates

It's usually not necessary to use the coordinates= parameter.

  • The latitude and longitude of the building 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, set coordinates_display= to any non-blank value. Otherwise coordinates will appear in the infobox only.
  • The ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 or ISO 3166-2 region code is specified using the iso_region= parameter.

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

{{Infobox school
...
| coordinates         = <!-- Template {{Coord}} if map is not used; empty if map is displayed. -->
| coordinates_display = <!-- non-blank to display coordinates at the top of the page. -->
| iso_region          = <!-- [[ISO 3166-1 alpha-2]] or [[ISO 3166-2]] region code -->
| pushpin_map         = <!-- Name of the Location map -->
| pushpin_label       = <!-- override the default label (default is name or native_name) -->
| pushpin_label_position = <!-- override the default label position -->
| pushpin_map_alt     = <!-- 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_caption         = <!-- ''map caption''; for no caption enter "map_caption="; if the parameter is omitted then the caption will be "Marker text (location map name)" -->
...
}}
Parameters to specify coordinates in degrees, minutes, and seconds of arc:
{{Infobox school
...
| 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 school
...
| 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

Deprecated parameters

This template uses two tracking categories

  1. Pages using infobox school with deprecated image parameters
    This tracks pages which use (a) both image and imagewikilink; (b) image_caption (replaced by picture_caption; (c) image_caption2 (replaced by picture_caption2); (d) Logo or Logo_size or Logo_alt (replaced by logo or logo_size or logo_alt; (3) Size (replaced by logo_size)
  2. Pages using infobox school with deprecated parameters
    This tracks pages which use (a) approx or c_approx (simply add c. before any approximate dates); (b) motto_pl or founder_pl or specialist_pl (for plural labels, use mottoes or founders or specialists); (c) both feeders and main feeder schools (use feeders); (d) both pupils and number of pupils (use pupils); (e) Location (use location) or Region (use region) or Opened (use opened) or Number (use number) or Principal (use principal) or Years (use years) or Students (use students) or International_Students (use international_students) or System (use system) or Classes offered (use classes_offered) or Hours_in_Day (use hours_in_day) or Campuses (use campuses) or National_ranking (use national_ranking) or Graduates (use graduates) or year (use ACT_year or SAT_year or graduates_year)

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.
