I am currently in the process of trying to get permission for this template. This is what I have so far. Since it is incomplete, this template is based on an outdated version. It should be fixed soon.

Still missing permission for some of the edits. Not sure if needed as they are very small (and thus perhaps are not a creative work, and therefore not copyrighted. but that is probably just wishful thinking)

Create location maps.

Usage[edit]

{{Location map|''map name''
|label=''label''
|position=left ''or'' right '' - position of the label relative to the mark
|lat=''latitude in degrees''
|long=''longitude in degrees''
|mark=''image file name - a red circle by default
|caption=''caption'' - caption below the map
|float=left ''or'' right ''or'' none
|width=''width of the map''
}}

Available maps[edit]

Creating new maps[edit]

  1. Find an appropriate blank map in an orthographic projection.
  2. Create a template named Template:Location map Location.
  3. Copy the content of any other map template into it and enter appropriate values.
  4. Done.

Issues[edit]

  • Doesn't handle longitude properly for maps crossing the +/- 180 meridian yet. (fixable, copyright is standing in my way)
  • Due to copyright, not as up to date as the Wikipedia version. working on it.
