Parameters[change | change source]

Mandatory[change | change source]

  • name = the official name (without the word island)
  • location = the sea in which the island is located
  • country = where the island is located. Either specify the standard three-letter ISO 3166-1 alpha-3 code for the country, or a name by which the country is commonly known (e.g., "US", "South Korea", "Democratic People's Republic of Korea"). As this parameter makes use of the {{flag}} template, do not wikilink the country name like this: "[[Indonesia]]". (See {{flag}} for more information.) If the island is shared, then use "country 1" and "country 2" and list them alphabetically.

Optional[change | change source]

  • native name = only when the common name is different from the native name
    • native name link = state the name of a Wikipedia article about the language that the native name of the island is in, e.g., "Indonesian language" for an Indonesian island. Do not wikilink the country name like this: "[[Indonesian language]]".

  • locator map = a locator map image (without the prefix "Image:") if there is one separate from the image used for the parameter "image name". The image will only be linked if it exists, which allows for use of the {{location map}} template.
    • locator map size = size of the locator map in pixels (e.g., "300px")
  • coordinates = geographic coordinates: use {{coord}} with the parameter "display=inline,title"
  • archipelago = the name of the group of islands the island belongs to
  • total islands = total number of islands (for archipelagos only)
  • major islands = names of the major islands (for archipelagos only)
  • area km2 or area sqmi = the area in either square kilometres or square miles without using {{convert}}; the conversion will be done automatically
    • area footnotes = references for area values using <ref></ref> format.
  • rank = the island's rank among other islands in the world in terms of size (1st being the largest island), as indicated in "List of islands by area"
  • length km or length mi = the length in either kilometres or miles without using {{convert}}; the conversion will be done automatically
    • length footnotes = references for length values using <ref></ref> format.
  • width km or width mi = the width in either kilometres or miles without using {{convert}}; the conversion will be done automatically
    • width footnotes = references for width values using <ref></ref> format.
  • coastline km or coastline mi = the length of the coastline in either kilometres or miles without using {{convert}}; the conversion will be done automatically
    • coastline footnotes = references for coastline values using <ref></ref> format.
  • elevation m or elevation ft = the height of the highest point in either metres or feet without using {{convert}}; the conversion will be done automatically
    • elevation footnotes = references for elevation values using <ref></ref> format.
  • highest mount = name of the highest point on the island, if any
  • Country heading = alternative title for the Country section (defaults value is "Country")
  • country admin divisions title = title for the administrative divisions
  • country admin divisions = the administrative divisions that govern the island
  • country admin divisions title 1 = (country admin divisions title 1)
  • country admin divisions 1 = (country admin divisions 1)
  • country admin divisions title 2 = (country admin divisions title 2)
  • country admin divisions 2 = (country admin divisions 2)
  • country capital
  • country largest city
  • country largest city population
  • country leader title
  • country leader name
  • country 1 = (see country)
  • country 1 admin divisions title = (country admin divisions title)

  • demonym = the name the people of the island are called that is based on location
  • population = the size of the island's population
  • population as of = the year when the population census took place
  • density km2 or density sqmi = the population density of the island expressed in either persons per square kilometres or persons per square miles without using {{convert}}; the conversion will be done automatically. For example if the number is 85, the output for density km2 is 85 /km2 (220 /sq mi).
    • density footnotes = references for density values using <ref></ref> format.

Microformat[change | change source]

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue article 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[change | change source]

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[change | change source]

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • county-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • label
  • locality
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • 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[change | change source]

When giving coordinates, please don't be overly precise.
