Map of the United Kingdom

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

Map definition

  • name = the United Kingdom
    Name used in the default map caption
  • bottom = 49
    Latitude at bottom edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • left = -11
    Longitude at left edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • right = 2.2
    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:
