Function

Usage

{{Mapframe|1|2|zoom=|height=|width=|layer=|staticmap=|align=|name=}}

Required parameters

|1 latitude of the map's centre, valid range: -90.0 to 90.0
|2 longitude of the map's centre, valid range: -180.0 to 180.0

Optional parameters

|zoom= zoom level, default=14, valid range: 0 to 18 or auto (0=Earth, 18=city block, auto=showing all markers)
|height= height of map frame, default is 420px - should be at least 370 to provide enough space for the layers menu to expand
|width= width of map frame, default is 420px
|staticmap= static map image, a normal png or svg file
|align= alignment of map frame, default is right (other values are "left" and "center")

Associated template

  • {{mapshape}} - Used to create a mask, shape or line using data from the OpenStreetMap database; useful for city or region borders, or for showing routes.
  • {{mapmask}} - Used to create a mask using manually entered latitude/longitude pairs; useful for drawing city or region borders that aren't available from OpenStreetMap.
