Military airports[change source]

These optional parameters provide additional information for military airports. The parameter names are based on those used in Template:Infobox military structure. This allows the display of information from that template, without the need to include an additional infobox. See example 4 below.

built
The date when the structure was built, usually given in years.
used
The period during which the structure was in active military use, usually given in years.
commander
The current commanding officer, for structures currently in military use.
occupants
Any notable military units which occupy the structure.

Geographic coordinates[change source]

This template allows for the insertion of geographic coordinates in two different ways: you can either provide a complete {{Coord}} template in the coordinates parameter, or you can provide the individual coordinate components (degrees, minutes, seconds, etc.) in the separate parameters described below. The latter method also allows you to insert a pushpin map with an automatically-placed airport icon and label (see below).

If you use both methods, then the coordinates parameter will be used in the infobox.

coordinates
Latitude and Longitude of airport, specified using the {{Coord}} template. When entering the coordinates always ensure that the resultant map or image shows the airport. It is very easy to confuse "N" for "S" or "E" for "W". If used as shown below, this will also cause the airport to appear in Google Earth's Geographic Web Layer.
Example: coordinates = {{Coord|49|27|16|N|002|06|46|E|type:airport_region:FR|display=inline,title}}
Result: 49°27′16″N 002°06′46″E / 49.45444°N 2.11278°E / 49.45444; 2.11278

Maps[change source]

This template provides two ways to include a map: as a simple image, or using {{Location map}} and the coordinate parameters described above to automatically place a pushpin mark and label on a map.

Image map[change source]

Am image map can be displayed by providing a value for image_map. The remaining image_ parameters are optional.

image_map
The name of an image to use as a map, such as Airport_map.png (do not include the File: or Image: prefix).
image_mapsize
(optional) The width to display the image map, in pixels. Just the number, no "px". If omitted or left empty, defaults to 220.
image_map_alt
(optional) Alt text for the image map. If left blank or omitted, this defaults to same text used in image_map_caption (or Location of {{{name}}} if no caption).
image_map_caption
(optional) Caption to display below the image map. If left blank or omitted, a caption will not be displayed.

Location/pushpin map[change source]

A location map can be displayed by providing values for coordinates, and pushpin_map. The remaining pushpin_ parameters are optional.

pushpin_map
The name of a location map as per Template:Location map (e.g. Indonesia or Russia). The |coordinates= parameter values position a pushpin mark and label on the map automatically.
pushpin_mapsize
(optional) The width to display the pushpin map, in pixels. Just the number, without "px". If omitted or left empty, defaults to 220.
pushpin_map_alt
(optional) Alt text for the pushpin map.
pushpin_map_caption
(optional) Caption to display below the pushpin map. If left blank or omitted, a caption will not be displayed.
pushpin_relief
(optional) Any non-blank value (yes, 1, etc.) will cause the template to display a relief map image, where available (see example 1). For additional information, see Template:Location map#Relief parameter.
pushpin_image
(optional) Name of an alternative map image, which must have the same edge coordinates as the location map template specified via pushpin_map (see example 5). Do not include the File: or Image: prefix. For additional information, see Template:Location map#AlternativeMap parameter.
pushpin_label
(optional) The text of the label to place next to the pushpin mark (see example 1). The default is the value of the name parameter.
pushpin_label_position
(optional) The position of the label on the pushpin map relative to the pushpin mark (see example 5). Valid values are left, right, top and bottom. This defaults to either left or right, depending on the coordinates of the marker and its position relative to the right border of the map image.
pushpin_mark
(optional) The name of an image to display as the pushpin mark (see example 5). The default is File:Airplane silhouette.svg ( Airplane silhouette.svg ).
pushpin_marksize
(optional) The size of the mark in pixels (see example 5). The default is 10. Do not include px, for example: pushpin_marksize = 8, not pushpin_marksize = 8px.

Infobox control[change source]

These parameters control how certain fields within the infobox are displayed.

metric-elev
Set to any value to display elevation in metric units (metres) before imperial/US units (feet); leave blank to display imperial/US units first. This can be seen in example 1.
metric-rwy
Set to any value to display runway length in metric units (metres) before imperial/US units (feet); leave blank to display imperial/US units first. Examples 1 and 2 below show the runway length with metres first; example 3 and 4 show it with feet before metres.

Runways[change source]

These parameters specify details for each runway in the "Runways" section displayed below the summary. This can also be used to specify water landing areas for seaplanes (see Fairbanks International Airport). Parameters start with r1- for the first runway, r2- for the second runway, up to r8- for the eighth runway (if more are needed, leave a message on the talk page). Each airport should have at least one runway.

rn-number (r1-number, r2-number, ...)
The designation of the runway, normally two numbers like this → 02/20, 1st number is 18 lower than the 2nd. Where there are parallel runways an additional letter is added to each number, for example "L" for left, "R" for right and "C" for center. In certain cases a runway will only have one number when it can only be used in one direction. For airports in the United States the leading zero is not used and the designation should read 2/20.
rn-length-f (r1-length-f, r2-length-f, ...)
Runway length in feet.
rn-length-m (r1-length-m, r2-length-m, ...)
Runway length in metres.
rn-surface (r1-surface, r2-surface, ...)
Runway surface type, such as: Concrete, Asphalt, Gravel, Grass (or Turf), Dirt, Water, etc. Avoid the generic type "Paved" if possible.

Helipads[change source]

These parameters specify details for each helipad in the "Helipads" section displayed below the runways. Parameters start with h1- for the first helipad, h2- for the second helipad, up to h12- for the twelfth helipad (if more are needed, leave a message on the talk page). This section is optional and only appears if the h1- parameters are specified. See example 1 and example 3 below.

hn-number(h1-number, h2-number, ...)
The designation of the helipad. In the United States this is usually the letter "H" followed by a number, i.e. "H1", "H2", etc.
hn-length-f (h1-length-f, h2-length-f, ...)
Helipad length in feet.
hn-length-m (h1-length-m, h2-length-m, ...)
Helipad length in metres.
hn-surface (h1-surface, h2-surface, ...)
Helipad surface type, such as: Concrete, Asphalt, etc. Avoid the generic type "Paved" if possible.

Statistics[change source]

These parameters specify details for an optional "Statistics" section displayed below the runways and helipads. Parameters start with stat1- for the first statistic, stat2- for the second statistic, etc. This section only appears if the stat1- parameters are specified. See example 1 and example 3 below.

statn-header (stat1-header, stat2-header, ...)
A brief description of each statistic, such as Passengers or Aircraft operations.
statn-data (stat1-data, stat2-data, ...)
The data associated with the corresponding header.
stat-year
The calendar year for the statistics. This is displayed in parentheses after the word "Statistics" in the section header.

Footnotes[change source]

This parameter contains text for footnotes displayed at the bottom of the infobox.

footnotes
The most common use for this field is to give sources or references for the data displayed in the infobox. See the examples below.

Microformat[change source]

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to an address book. Within the hCard is a Geo microformat, which additionally makes the coordinates (latitude & longitude) parsable, so that they can be, say, looked up on a map, or downloaded to a GPS unit. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates[change source]

If the place or venue has an "established", "founded", "opened" or similar date, use {{start date}} unless the date is before 1583 CE.

If it has a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes[change source]

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • county-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • label
  • locality
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • uid
  • url
  • vcard

Geo is produced by calling {{coord}}, and uses HTML classes:

  • geo
  • latitude
  • longitude

Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.

Precision[change source]

When giving coordinates, please use an appropriate level of precision. Do not use {{coord}}'s |name= parameter.

Tracking categories[change source]
