Map of Australia

Template:Location map Australia is a location map definition used to overlay markers and labels on an equirectangular projection map of Australia. The markers are placed by latitude and longitude coordinates on the default map or a similar map image.

Usage[edit]

These definitions are used by the following templates when invoked with parameter "Australia":

Map definition[edit]

  • name = Australia
    Name used in the default map caption
  • bottom = -44.5
    Latitude at bottom edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • left = 111.5
    Longitude at left edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • right = 155
    Longitude at right edge of map, in decimal degrees

Alternative map

The map defined as image1 (Australia relief map.jpg) can be displayed by using the relief or AlternativeMap parameters in {{Location map}} and {{Location map+}}. The use of these two parameters is shown in the examples below.
