Automatic coloring edit

This template automatically colors itself since it is used by such a wide number of articles. This is to help distinguish between different religious affiliations of the buildings. If the religious affiliation field matches any of the following values it will change the color of the infobox automatically.

Religious Affiliation Color
[[Anglican]], [[Anglicanism|Anglican]], [[Anglicanism]], [[Episcopal Church in the United States of America]],
[[Episcopal Church in the United States of America|ECUSA]], [[Episcopal Church (United States)]],
[[Episcopal Church (United States)|Episcopal Church]], or [[Church of England]]
[[Buddhist]] or [[Buddhism]] #FFCC33
[[Hinduism]] #FF8C80
[[Islam]] #9BE89B
[[Shia Islam|Shia]], [[Shia Islam]], or [[Shia]] #ABE9CC

Everything else defaults to #D3D3D3

Map and coordinates edit

It's usually not necessary to use the geo= or coordinates= parameters.

  • The latitude and longitude of the building may be specified:
    • in decimal degrees, using latitude= and longitude= OR
    • in degrees/minutes/seconds, using latd=, latm=, lats=, latNS=, longd=, longm=, longs=, and longEW=.
  • To suppress the display coordinates at the top of the page, set coordinates_display=inline. Otherwise coordinates will appear in the infobox and at the top of the page.
  • The ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 or ISO 3166-2 region code should be set using the coordinates_region= parameter.

One advantage of omitting the geo= or coordinates= parameters is that you can display a {{Location map}} without duplicating coordinates.

{{Infobox religious building
| coordinates         = <!-- Template {{Coord}} if map is not used; empty if map is displayed. -->
| coordinates_display = <!-- use inline to suppress display coordinates at the top of the page. -->
| coordinates_region  = <!-- To set the ISO region code. -->
| map_type            = <!-- Location name used for Template:Location map -->
| map_alt             = <!-- Alternative text for map image, see WP:ALT for details -->
| map_caption         = <!-- Text to be displayed below map; for no caption enter "map_caption="; if the parameter is omitted then the caption will be "Marker text (location map name)" -->
| relief              = <!-- Any non-blank value (yes, 1, etc.) will cause the template to display a relief map image, where available. -->
Parameters to specify coordinates in degrees, minutes, and seconds of arc:
{{Infobox religious building
| latd   = <!-- ''latitude'' degrees -->
| latm   = <!-- ''latitude'' minutes -->
| lats   = <!-- ''latitude'' seconds -->
| latNS  = <!-- latitude: S=south, N=north (default) -->
| longd  = <!-- ''longitude'' degrees -->
| longm  = <!-- ''longitude'' minutes -->
| longs  = <!-- ''longitude'' seconds -->
| longEW = <!-- longitude: W=west, E=east (default) -->
Parameters to specify coordinates in decimal degrees:
{{Infobox building
| latitude  = <!-- ''latitude'' (decimal format; enter negative numbers for southern latitude) -->
| longitude = <!-- ''longitude'' (decimal format; enter negative numbers for western longitude) --> 

Note: coordinates in decimal degrees are sensitive to extra whitespace in the parameters:

  • Incorrect: | longitude = - 123.45
  • Correct: | longitude = -123.45

Microformat edit

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, 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, 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.
