Կաղապար:Intricate template

Template intended to simplify adding a standardized and formatted caption below a map indicating the location of something (e.g. a country), possibly referring to the map's main region and optionally also to a shown subregion. Original use within infoboxes (e.g. see articles on European countries). For a complete set of elements of reasonable length, a width of (minimally) 250px (without extra padding or margins) should be available.

Parameters

Required parameters shown in bold italics

Parameter Description Default
countryprefix
  • Neither linked nor styled prefix e.g. "the" (for articles named e.g. "United Kingdom", "Czech Republic", "Netherlands").
country
  • Only if the country name at the map should not be identical to the article name (e.g. "Metropolitan France").
  • Template sets [[...]], thus if identical to article name (default) in article shown in bold instead of linked.
  • <Կաղապար:Tsp>
    location
  • Only if colour is not used and its default is not appropriate: Description identifying country's location (e.g. "circled in inset")
  • This parameter must never be empty; "none" suppresses it. If passed, location_color cannot be shown.
  • location_color
  • Only if description is not used: Colour identifying country's location; "none" suppresses the default.
  • orange
    region
  • Name (or equally extremely short description) for approximately the entire area depicted by the map.
  • special: "[[Antarctica]]" shown as "on Antarctica",
  • special: "[[Middle East]]", "[[Arctic Circle]]" or "[[Pacific Ocean]]" shown as "in the ...",
  • special: versus any other: shown as "in ...", e.g. "[[Africa]]" shown as "in Africa"
  • region_color
  • Colour identifying region; "none" suppresses the default.
  • white
    subregion
  • Subregion indicated within region (only if used: aligning both region and subregion lines to the left, else single region line centered as top line)
  • Must not occur without parameter region.
  • special: "[[EU]]" or "[[European Union]]" shown as "in the European Union",
  • special: versus any other: shown as "in ...", e.g. "the [[Caucasus]]" shown as "in the Caucasus"
  • subregion_color
  • Colour identifying subregion; "none" suppresses showing the default.
  • tan
    legend
  • Filename of image providing a map legend.
  • Note
    If country, region or subregion is exactly the name of a page in article space, the template automatically creates a link to it. You can still put a link here manually, using the usual syntax.

    Examples

    Code Raw result (in unformatted box, compare to handling in Infobox)
    {{map caption}}
    Location of  Map caption  (orange)
    {{map caption |region=Europe |legend=European location legend en.png}}
    Location of  Map caption  (orange)

    in Europe  (white)  –  [Legend]

    {{map caption |countryprefix=the |region=Europe |subregion=the [[European Union]] |legend=European location legend en.png}}
    Location of the  Map caption  (orange)

    – in Europe  (tan & white)
    – in the European Union  (tan)                  [Legend]

     Typical sample for an article on a European Union member that needs no "the" before its name, for otherwise identical output:
    {{map caption |region=Europe |subregion=EU |legend=European location legend en.png}}
    Location of  Map caption  (orange)

    – in Europe  (tan & white)
    – in the European Union  (tan)                  [Legend]

    Infobox usage of code (as intended) — in which the alignment, the padding/margins, and font are rendered differently (this template adjusts for that infobox):
    Sample for article named 'Armenia', about a non-European country

    {{Infobox Country or territory|
    |common_name = Armenia
    |image_map = Europe location ARM.png
    |map_caption = {{map caption}}
    |(some required infobox parameters omitted from sample)
    }}


    Sample for article named 'Belarus', about a non-member of the EU
    {{Infobox Country or territory|
    |common_name = Belarus
    |image_map = Europe location BLR.png
    |map_caption = {{map caption |region=Europe |legend=European location legend en.png}}
    |(some required infobox parameters omitted from sample)
    }}


    Sample for article named 'Netherlands', about a member of the EU
    {{Infobox Country or territory|
    |common_name = the Netherlands
    |image_map = EU location NED.png
    |map_caption = {{map caption |countryprefix=the |region=Europe |subregion=the [[European Union]] |legend=European location legend en.png}}
    |(some required infobox parameters omitted from sample)
    }}
