Template:Coord/doc/internals

Template:Coord consists of a number of subtemplates. This page provides an explanation of how the template uses these subtemplates.

Use casesEdit

dec: {{Coord|9|-9|type:landmark}}
             1 2  3

  d: {{Coord|9|N|9|W|type:landmark}}
             1 2 3 4 5

 dm: {{Coord|9|9|N|9|9|W|type:landmark}}
             1 2 3 4 5 6 7

dms: {{Coord|9|9|9|N|9|9|9|W|type:landmark}}
             1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9

CoordEdit

Template:Coord

Input: Parameters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, format, name

Pass all parameters to one of the following input templates:

if no 4th parameter
 use #Coord/input/dec
else if 4th and 8th together are NE, NW, SE or SW
 use #Coord/input/dms
else if 3rd and 6th together are NE, NW, SE or SW
 use #Coord/input/dm
else if 2nd and 4th together are NE, NW, SE or SW
 use #Coord/input/d
else
 use #Coord/input/ERROR

The input templates differ on which parameters they use and what they do to them.

Coord/input/decEdit

Template:Coord/input/dec

Input: Parameters 1, 2, 3, format, name

Pass to Coord/link the following parameters:

  • dms-lat and dms-long: The latitude and longitude in degrees (minutes (and seconds)) format as text (and not separate parameters), using
    • Coord/prec dec to determine whether minutes and seconds are needed to cover the precision of the given number of decimal digits, and
    • Coord/dec2dms to split them to the necessary parts.
  • dec-lat and dec-long: Passed along as given.
  • param: URL parameters for use in Template:GeoTemplate
  • default: The format parameter, or "dec" if not given. Used in #Coord/link
  • name: Passed along as given.

Coord/input/dEdit

Template:Coord/input/d

Input: Parameters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, format, name

Pass to Coord/link the following parameters:

  • dms-lat and dms-long: The latitude and longitude in degrees (minutes (and seconds)) format as text (and not separate parameters), using
    • Coord/prec dec to determine whether minutes and seconds are needed to cover the precision of the given number of decimal digits, and
    • Coord/dec2dms to split them to the necessary parts.
  • dec-lat and dec-long: Passed along with signs from NSEW using Coord/dms2dec
  • param: URL parameters for use in Template:GeoTemplate
  • default: The format parameter, or "dec" if not given. Used in #Coord/link
  • name: Passed along as given.

Coord/input/dmEdit

Template:Coord/input/dm

...

Coord/input/dmsEdit

Template:Coord/input/dms

...

Coord/linkEdit

Template:Coord/link

Input: Template:Coor URL and parameters dms-lat, dms-long, dec-lat, dec-long, param, name, default

Creates a link of the given coordinates, displaying the coordinate parameters as such. The default parameter controls which of dms or dec is shown, by using the geo classes in MediaWiki:Common.css, as described in {{UF-coord-classes}}

In addition, "geo" and the nested "latitude" and "longitude" have special meaning as a Geo microformat and so might also be used by other templates.
