Snið:Location map

[breyta] Leiðbeiningar

Creates a location map as a composite image of an existing map in equirectangular projection with a marker and an optional label superimposed onto it. Note:

  • Using "caption=xxx" frames the map (empty "caption=" leaves map unframed).
  • The marker/label is not checked for valid latitude/longitude & could land anywhere on the article page, even beyond the bottom.
  • To suppress the marker, set marksize=1 pixel wide.
  • For map "width=250" omit "px" or map will stretch across page.
  • To place multiple markers/labels, refer below to: See also.
  • To map along converging longitudes, refer to: Template:Location_map_skew.

 |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

Parameter location refers to {Template:Location map location} containing the name and coordinates of a map.
