Whether variable is set or not.  A variable is set when it is not nil and not empty.


local function is_set( var )
	return not (var == nil or var == '');

--[[--------------------------< M A I N >----------------------------------------------------------------------

Template entry point.  This function takes up to two unnamed positional parameters:
	1 = coordinate string typically from a call to Wikidata like this: {{#property:P625|from=Q...}}
	2 = coordinate parameters; see Template:Coord
Also takes the named parameters |display=, |format=, |name=, |notes= which it passes on to {{coord}}

Reformats the Wikidata coordinate string into unnamed parameters for {{coord}}
