Template:Infobox settlement/doc

From Wikibooks, open books for an open world
Jump to: navigation, search

This template should be used to produce an Infobox for human settlements (cities, towns, villages, communities) as well as other administrative districts, counties, provinces, etcetera - in fact, any subdivision below the level of a country, for which {{Infobox country}} should be used. Parameters are described in the table below. For questions see the talk page.

Usage[edit]

  • Important: Please enter all numeric values in a raw, unformatted fashion. References are to be included in their respective section footnotes field. Numeric values that are not "raw" may create an "Expression error". Raw values will be automatically formatted by the template. If you find a raw value is not formatted in your usage of the template, please post a notice on the discussion page for this template.
  • An expression error may also occur when any coordinate parameter has a value, but one or more coordinate parameters are blank or invalid.

Basic blank template, ready to cut and paste. See the next section for a copy of the template with all parameters and comments. See the table below that for a full description of each parameter.

Geographic information[edit]

These fields have dual automatic unit conversion meaning that if only metric values are entered, the imperial values will be automatically converted and vice versa.

Parameter name Usage Description
Display settings
total_type optional Specifies what "total" area and population figure refer to, e.g. Greater London. This overrides other labels for total population/area. To make the total area and population display on the same line as the words "Area" and "Population", with no "Total" or similar label, set the value of this parameter to &nbsp;.
unit_pref optional To change the unit order to imperial (metric), enter imperial. The default display style is metric (imperial). However, the template will swap the order automatically if the subdivision_name equals some variation of the USA or the UK.
For the middle east, a unit preference of dunam can be entered (only affects total area).
All values must be entered in a raw format: no commas, spaces, or unit symbols. The template will format them automatically.

dunam_link optional If dunams are used, the default is to link the word dunams in the total area section. This can be changed by setting dunam_link to another measure (e.g. dunam_link=water). Linking can also be turned off by setting the parameter to something else (e.g. dunam_link=none or dunam_link=off).

Microformat[edit]

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 Wikibooks, 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 and Wikibooks, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates[edit]

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[edit]

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[edit]

When giving coordinates, please use an appropriate level of precision. Do not use Coord's |name= parameter.
