Height parameters[change source]

The following parameters are provided for the height of buildings. They include parameters corresponding to methods used by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH) to measure the height of tall buildings. CTBUH heights are measured from the level of the lowest, significant, open-air, pedestrian entrance of the building.

Specify |height= with no other height-related parameters, or leave |height= blank and fill in one or more of the other parameters below. Use of |height= along with one of the other parameters below will place the page in Category:Pages using infobox building with parameter errors.

Parameter Description
height Generic height parameter
architectural (CTBUH) Height to the top of the building, inclusive of spires but excluding items such as flagpoles and antennae. This is the most commonly cited CTBUH measurement.
tip (CTBUH) Height to the highest point of the building, including antennae, flagpoles, and technical equipment.
top_floor (CTBUH) Height to the floor level of the highest floor that is occupied by building users on a consistent basis.
roof (CTBUH) Height to top of roof. This category was removed from CTBUH criteria in 2009, but is included for historical data.
observatory Height of observation deck.
antenna_spire Height of the highest point of structures such as antenna towers.

Map and coordinates[change source]

Location maps[change source]

The coordinates= parameter is used to display coordinates in the infobox, and optionally at the top of the page; use the {{coord}} template.

{{Infobox building
...
| coordinates         = <!-- Use the {{Coord}} template. -->
| map_type            = <!-- Location name used for Template:Location map -->

| map_caption         = <!-- Text to be displayed below map; for no caption enter "map_caption="; if the parameter is omitted then the caption will be "Marker text (location map name)" -->
| relief              = <!-- Any non-blank value (yes, 1, etc.) will cause the template to display a relief map image, where available. -->
| map_dot_label       = <!-- Text to display on the map -->

Mapframe maps[change source]

A Mapframe map is automatically included if:

  • There are coordinates specified on the page's Wikidata item (or the item specified in |qid=)
  • It has not been turned off by setting |mapframe=no
  • Other map types have not been used (|pushpin_map= |map_type= and |image_map= not used)

The following optional parameters can be used to adjust the map

  • Basic parameters:
    • mapframe – Specify yes or no to show or hide the map, overriding the default. Default: see above
    • mapframe-caption – Caption for the map. Default: blank (or if |mapframe-geomask= is set, "Location in geomask's label")
    • mapframe-custom – Use a custom map instead of the automatic mapframe. Specify either a {{maplink}} template, or another template that generates a mapframe map, or an image name. If used, the subsequent mapframe parameters will be ignored. Default: not specified
    • mapframe-id or id or qid – Id (Q-number) of Wikidata item to use. Default: item for current page
    • mapframe-coordinates or mapframe-coord or coordinates or coord – Coordinates to use, instead of any on Wikidata. Use the {{Coord}} template, e.g. |coord={{Coord|12.34|N|56.78|E}}. Default: coordinates from Wikidata
    • mapframe-wikidata – Set to yes to show shape/line features from the wikidata item, if any, when |coord= is set. Default: not specified
  • Customise which features are displayed:
    • mapframe-shape – Turn off display of shape feature by setting to none. Use an inverse shape (geomask) instead of a regular shape by setting to inverse. Default: not specified
    • mapframe-point – Turn off display of point feature by setting to none. Force point marker to be displayed by setting to on. Default: not specified
    • mapframe-line – Turn off display of line feature by setting to none. Default: not specified
    • mapframe-geomask – Wikidata item to use as a geomask (everything outside the boundary is shaded darker).

      • auto – switch geomasks found in location (P276) and located in the administrative territorial entity (P131) statements on the page's Wikidata item, searching recursively. E.g. an item's city, that city's state, and that state's country.
      • geomasks – switch between the geomasks specified as a comma-separated list of Wikidata items (Q-numbers) in the mapframe-geomask parameter

  • Other optional parameters:
    • mapframe-frame-width or mapframe-width – Frame width. Default: 270

    • mapframe-length_km or mapframe-length_mi or mapframe-area_km2 or mapframe-area_mi2 – Determine zoom level by passing in object's length (in kilometres or miles) or area (in square kilometres or square miles). Default: not specified

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 "established", "founded", "opened" or similar dates, use {{start date}} for the earliest of those dates 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.
