* The field listed below is a prerequisite for the field to the left. For example title is a prerequisite to url meaning url will NOT be displayed even if it has a value unless title also has a value.

Description of fields

Syntax

Nested fields either rely on their parent fields, or replace them:

  • parent
    • child — may be used with parent (and is ignored if parent is not used)

Descriptions

  • publisher: The distributor/branding of the map.
  • title: The title of the map as given on the front of the map.
    • url: If the map is available online, link to it.
  • edition: The edition name or number or the year or range of years of publication of the map (e.g. "2nd", "1989'", "2006-2007", etc). Note: the word "edition" will be placed after this field therefore you don't need to put it in this field, i.e. write "2nd", not "2nd edition'".
  • date: Date of publication edition being referenced.
  • year: Year of publication edition being referenced. This is not necessary if date is specified or if the edition contains the year.
  • cartography: If the cartography was prepared by a company other than the publisher (e.g. Rand McNally, H.M. Gousha, etc), include it here.
  • scale: The scale of the map (e.g. "1 : 20,000" or "1/4" = 1 mile").
  • series: The series this map is part of.
  • page: If the map is in an atlas, include the page number here. Do NOT use for standard (i.e. one-sheet) maps.
  • section: The map coordinate of the feature you're referencing (e.g. 6A, 9B, 11L, etc).
  • inset: The name of the small focused inset you're referencing (Downtown Fooburg, etc).
  • accessdate: Full date when map was accessed (if online). Must not be wikilinked.
  • isbn: International Standard Book Number such as 0-9662209-4-3.
    • OR: id: A unique identifier, used if isbn is not applicable. In this case, you need to specify the kind of identifier you are using, preferably with a template like {{ISSN}}.
  • ref: ID for anchor. By default, no anchor is generated. The ordinary nonempty value |ref=ID generates an anchor with the given ID; such a linkable reference can be made the target of wikilinks to full references, especially useful in short citations like shortened notes and parenthetical referencing.
