Location map

These six parameters are used for a location map of the city.

|LatitudeDegrees=
|LatitudeMinutes=
|LatitudeSeconds= (optional)
|LongtitudeDegrees=
|LongtitudeMinutes=
|LongtitudeSeconds= (optional)

For Okinawa Prefecture & Ōshima Subprefecture (Kagoshima) only use the following below

|LatitudeDegrees1=
|LatitudeMinutes1=
|LatitudeSeconds1= (optional)
|LongtitudeDegrees1=
|LongtitudeMinutes1=
|LongtitudeSeconds1= (optional)

Coordinates

The location map parameters above also show the coordinates. However, the different parameter "Coords" can be used as well. When both parameters are used, "Coords" overrides the location map parameters for the coordinates. For "Coords", use {{coord}} with display=inline,title.

Microformat

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue article 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.

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}}.

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • county-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • label
  • locality
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • 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.

When giving coordinates, please don't be overly precise.
