Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template adds a link, or frame, which will display a map from OpenStreetMap together with specified map data. The map and data can be viewed in a scrollable and zoomable fullscreen window. The map data can come from:

  • data stored in GeoJSON format on Wikipedia or Commons
  • line/polygon features in OpenStreetMap.
  • coordinates, either supplied or from Wikidata
  • raw GeoJSON, preferably transcluded from another page

Note:

  • If you have a very large/slow map, you should use the mapframe extension tag directly instead of this template, as was done in Special:Diff/970846012. The reason for this is that using the template to call the extension tag will result in the map rendering counting as Lua time, which may result in time exceeded errors.
  • GeoJSON files cannot currently be directly uploaded. Instead, on Commons, create a page that is in the Data: namespace and ends in .map – see mw:Help:Map Data for further information.
  • To make OpenStreetMap (OSM) features available, add the Wikidata key to the OSM relation (and wait 1 or 2 days) – see mw:Help:Extension:Kartographer#External_data and mw:Help:Extension:Kartographer/OSM for further information.

Uses[muda l codesc]

This template is intended to show points as well as linear or polygon features on a map, including (but not limited to):

  • Roads
  • Rivers
  • Subway or train lines
  • Ship courses
  • Flight paths
  • Explorers journeys
  • Animal habitats
  • Countries and their subdivisions

and more... This template can also be used to display point features on a map, i.e. coordinates.

Usage[muda l codesc]

          Parameters[muda l codesc]

          For overall display[muda l codesc]

          display
          How the template is displayed. Valid values are:
          inline - Only displays the inline link (you can forego this, as it is the default)
          title - Only displays the title link
          inline,title - Displays the inline link as well as the title link
          title,inline - Same as above
          text
          Text to display for the link (or caption if using mapframe); default is "Map"
          icon
          Set to "no" to turn off the icon that appears next to the link
          zoom
          Zoom level, from 1 to 19 (larger numbers zoom in further); default is automatically determined by the map, unless the only feature is a single point.

          Mapframe parameters (only work with inline display)

          frame
          Set to "yes" to show a map frame instead of a link
          plain

          frame-coordinates
          (or frame-coord)
          Optional - alternate coordinates for initial placement of map. Use {{Coord}} template to specify coordinates (e.g. |frame-coordinates={{tl|Coord|12.34|S|56.78|W}}). If not set, coordinates will be retrieved from Wikidata.
          frame-latitude

          Optional - alternate latitude coordinate for initial placement of map.
          frame-longitude
          (or frame-long)
          (ignored if |frame-coordinates= or |frame-coord= is set)
          Optional - alternate longitude coordinate for initial placement of map.
          Template:A note If frame latitude and longitude are not set by parameters, then frame coordinates can be determined automatically, either:
          • Based on the line and shape objects (if any have been specified), or
          • From the point feature specified in |coord= (if set), or
          • Retrieved from Wikidata (if available – for either the item specified in |id= parameter, or for the page the template is placed on)
          overlay
          An image, or another map, to be displayed on top the map. E.g.
          |overlay=Template:Elc or

          |overlay={{Graph:Street map with marks|width=100|height=100|lat=37.8|lon=-122.4|zoom=6|{ "lat": 37.8, "lon": -122.4 }|minimap=false}}
          (see Template:Maplink/testcases/overlays to view examples)
          overlay-horizontal-alignment
          Horizontal alignment of overlay, either left or right; default is right
          overlay-vertical-alignment
          Vertical alignment of overlay, either top or bottom; default is bottom
          overlay-horizontal-offset and overlay-vertical-offset
          Optional – number of pixels to offset the overlay in from the edge of the map, e.g. 10 for a 10 pixel gap
          overlay-border
          CSS style for the border, e.g. 3px solid black; default is 1px solid white. The colour can be any web color name or hex code.

          Raw GeoJSON[muda l codesc]

          raw
          Raw GeoJSON (preferably transcluded from a subpage of Wikipedia:Map data) as well as <maplink> functionality not available via the other parameters. See below for more information.

          For each feature[muda l codesc]

          Multiple features can be displayed on a single map. For each additional feature, add a sequential number to the end of the parameter name. For example, the second uses parameters like |type2=, |id2=, etc., the third feature |type3=, |id3=, etc., and so on. Higher numbers are drawn on top.

          type
          Type of data. Valid values are:
          line – a geoline feature from OSM (e.g. a road)
          shape – a geoshape feature from OSM (e.g. a state or province)
          shape-inverse – a geomask feature from OSM (the inverse of a geoshape - allows an unobstructed view of the map beneath)
          data – a geoJSON data page on Commons (parameter is optional in this case)
          point – a point feature (coordinates)
          named – all named coordinates in an page or section ({{coord}} templates with |name= parameter)
          circle – a circle centred on a point's coordinates
          id
          (or ids)
          Wikidata id (Q-number) of the point feature, Wikidata id that the OSM line/shape feature is tagged with. Separate multiple ids with a comma. Defaults to the current page's Wikidata id (if |from= not set).
          from
          Source of map data:
          • If type is data or omitted: The JSON (.map) file from Commons to display (excluding the Data: prefix)
          • If type is named: Page name, or name#section, to get named coordinates from. If omitted, or specified as just #section, then current page will be used.
          title
          Title of the feature (for features from OSM), displayed when the feature is clicked on; default is the page title
          description
          Description of the feature (for features from OSM), displayed when the feature is clicked on; optional
          stroke-color
          (or stroke-colour)
          Color code for the color used to draw the feature (for features from OSM); default is #ff0000 (red)
          stroke-width
          Width for the lines used to draw the feature (for features from OSM); default is 6
          stroke-opacity
          Opacity for the lines used to draw the feature (for features from OSM) – a number between 0 (fully transparent) and 1 (fully opaque); default is 1
          fill
          Color code for the fill color of the feature (for shape or shape-inverse features from OSM); default is #000000 (black). Note that a semi-transparent version of the specified color will be used by default, allowing the map below to still be seen.
          fill-opacity
          Opacity for the fill color of the feature (for shape or shape-inverse features from OSM) – a number between 0 (fully transparent) and 1 (fully opaque); default is 0.5
          coord
          Coordinates to display for a point feature. Use {{Coord}} template to specify coordinates (e.g. |coord={{Coord|12.34|S|56.78|W}}). If not set, coordinates will be retrieved from Wikidata.
          marker
          Name of Maki marker image to display at the point feature. See mw:Maps/Icons for options. If not set, a plain marker will be shown without an image.
          marker-color
          (or marker-colour)
          Color code (Hex triplet) specifying marker background color. Default is 5E74F3 ( )
          marker-size
          Size of the marker. Can be small, medium (default) or large.
          radius
          (or radius_m), or alternative parameters radius_km, or radius_mi, or radius_ft
          Radius of the circle. In metres by default, or in kilometers or miles or feet if the alternative parameters are used.
          edges
          Number of edges used to construct the circle. Default is 32. Higher numbers will result in a smoother circle but use more Lua processing resources.

          Multiple map switcher[muda l codesc]

          An option for Template:Switcher-style switching of multiple mapframes, where specified parameters like zoom, or frame coordinates, or a shape's item id are switched between different values. When using, ensure the number of values in each list are the same.

          Instructions:

          1. Add parameter switch to specify labels for the different options: a list separated by either,, or ; if the labels contain commas, or ### if the labels contain semi-colons. Each label will be displayed with a prefix of "Show ".
            Example: |switch=zoomed out, zoomed mid, zoomed in
          2. For each parameter that is to be switched, set its value to SWITCH: followed by a list of values to switch between, again separated by , or ; or ###
            Example: |zoom=SWITCH:4,9,14
            Parameters frame, plain, and text should not be switched
          3. Make sure each list has the same number of entries. The position of value in a SWITCH: list corresponds to the same position in the list of labels set in |switch=.

          Example: Template:Mapframe

          {{mapframe|frame=yes|type=point|id={{Get QID|French submarine Ariane (1914)}}|text=Boston|zoom=SWITCH:4,9,14|switch=zoomed out, zoomed mid, zoomed in}}

          Examples and tips[muda l codesc]

          Multiple features[muda l codesc]

          Multiple features allow you to:

          • Use external data from both Wikimedia Commons and OpenStreetMap together
          • Apply different styles to different external data features from OpenStreetMap
          • Include multiple links to external data from Wikimedia Commons

          Infoboxes[muda l codesc]

          Mapframes can be included in infoboxes. Using |plain=yes to remove the outer frame is recommended.

          For simple cases with a single feature, {{infobox mapframe}} can be used instead (see that template's documentation for details). Template:Infobox Australian road

          {{Infobox Australian road
          | location = {{maplink |type=line |frame=yes |plain=yes |frame-align=center |frame-lat=-31.8262 |frame-long=115.7877 |zoom=9}}
            ...  (other parameters omitted)  ...
          }}
          

          The raw parameter[muda l codesc]

          The "raw" parameter allows the same inputs as the full <maplink> function. It allows you to:

          • Use GeoJSON data directly
          • Use Wikidata queries to obtain information for the map
          • Use templates - if a map includes direct GeoJSON or many components, placing the data in a template will avoid cluttering the article text

          See mw:Help:Extension:Kartographer for instructions.

          Gotchas[muda l codesc]

          • When retrieving lines or shapes from OSM, you can't style the fill color or the opacity level of fills or strokes (unless you use the |raw= parameter)
          • The following code utilising the |raw= parameter won't work because the curly brace to close the GeoJSON is adjacent to the curly braces to close the template:
          {{Maplink|raw= {"type": "ExternalData","service": "geoshape","ids": "Q13518258"}}}
          To fix it, put a space before the two template braces or move them to a separate line.
