This template acts as a frame for an external map. Javascript is used to replace "mapdiv" with an iframe. See Wikivoyage:How to use dynamic maps and Wikivoyage:Dynamic maps Expedition for more information.



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")
|name= name of the location as you want it to appear in the caption - default display is the article title with parent page and disambiguation removed. For an example of this parameter's usage, see Amsterdam/Binnenstad.
|layer= see Wikivoyage:How to use dynamic maps#Mapframe
