Usage[change source]

This template creates a {{cite book}} citation to the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Lists of Lights, including publication title, page, and year, plus a reference to the URL on the NGA web site that currently has the PDF of the seven publications (Pubs 110-116). Its use provides a standard citation for the Publications as well as making it easy to modify all citations globally if the NGA changes its web site organization, as happened with the US Coast Guard Light Lists in July, 2010.

Parameters[change source]

The template may be used in the form

{{Cite ngall|110|2009|123}}

which will result in

List of Lights, Pub. 110: Greenland, The East Coasts of North and South America (Excluding Continental U.S.A. Except the East Coast of Florida) and the West Indies (PDF). List of Lights. United States National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency. 2009. p. 123.

The first parameter is always unnamed and must be a zero or a number from 110 to 116, corresponding to the seven volumes of the NGA Light List. Calling for Publication zero yields a generic reference which ignores any page given. The second parameter is the year, and the third is the page number. Either or both of the year and the page may be omitted, like this

{{cite ngall|110|2009|}}
or
{{cite ngall|110||123}}
(note the blank || where the year would go)

It may also be used with named parameters:

{{cite ngall
|110
|year = 2009
|page = 123
}}

or in compact form

{{cite ngall|110|year = 2009|page = 123}}
