Map of Afghanistan

Module:Location map/data/Afghanistan is a location map definition used to overlay markers and labels on an equirectangular projection map of Afghanistan. The markers are placed by latitude and longitude coordinates on the default map or a similar map image.

Usage

These definitions are used by the following templates when invoked with parameter "Afghanistan":

Map definition

  • name = Afghanistan
    Name used in the default map caption
  • bottom = 29
    Latitude at bottom edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • left = 60
    Longitude at left edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • right = 75.3
    Longitude at right edge of map, in decimal degrees

Alternative map

The {{Location map}}, {{Location map many}}, and {{Location map+}} templates have parameters to specify an alternative map image. The map displayed as image1 can be used with the relief or AlternativeMap parameters. Examples may be found below or in the following:

Kabul
Kabul (Afghanistan)
{{Location map | Afghanistan
| width   = 200
| lat_deg = 34.53

| label   = Kabul
}}

Location map many, using relief map (image1)

Location map/data/Afghanistan is located in Afghanistan
Kabul

Two locations in Afghanistan
{{Location map many | Afghanistan
| relief   = yes
| width    = 200
| caption  = Two locations in Afghanistan

| lon1_deg = 69.16
| label1   = Kabul
| lat2_deg = 31.62
| lon2_deg = 65.72
| label2   = Kandahar
}}
