Map of Burkina Faso

Module:Location map/data/Burkina Faso is a location map definition used to overlay markers and labels on an equirectangular projection map of Burkina Faso. 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 "Burkina Faso":

Map definition

  • name = Burkina Faso
    Name used in the default map caption
  • bottom = 9
    Latitude at bottom edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • left = -6
    Longitude at left edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • right = 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:
