Parameters[change source]

Only the name and elevation fields are required. All other fields are optional and will not display if not present in the template or do not have any value.

Naming and hierarchy parameters[change source]

name Name of the mountain, peak or hill. If more than one mountain by the name exists, the article is likely disambiguated but this name in the infobox should be the undisambiguated name. For example, Mount Columbia (for Mount Columbia (Canada) or Mount Columbia (Colorado)). An elevation must be supplied.
other_name Other name for the mountain if relatively well known. For example, Mount McKinley for Denali. Quotes can be used as normal to italicize or bold the text if desired.
etymology Origin of name
native_name Name in local language. If more than one, separate using {{Plain list}}
native_name_lang ISO 639-2 code e.g. "fr" for French. If more than one, use {{lang}} instead
pronunciation Use an appropriate IPA-xx template, replacing 'xx' with the ISO code for the language. (See {{IPA-en}} for English.)
listing Name of a relevant list of mountains that the peak belongs to. See List of mountain lists for examples.
range Mountain range that the mountain/massif/range belongs to, if applicable. The specific range subgroup should be provided instead of any major mountain system unless there is no applicable subgroup. For example, use Teton Range and not Rocky Mountains or Bernese Alps not Alps.

Photographic and mapping parameters[change source]

photo Photograph of the mountain. Preferably a distance shot to show most/all of the mountain rather than a view from the summit. Do not include the "File:" prefix. If uploading a new image, please put them on Commons so they can be easily used by the other language Wikipedias.
photo_size The image width in pixels. If specified, the maximum width is 280px. If not specified, the image uses frameless with upright=1.25 which displays it at approximately 125% of the user's default thumbnail size (for most users the image will display at 280px; for logged-in users who have changed the setting at Special:Preferences the displayed image could range from 150px to 500px). See also: Module:InfoboxImage, WP:AUTOSIZE, WP:EIS, WP:IMGSIZE, and MOS:IMGSIZE.
photo_alt Alt text for the photo, primarily for visually impaired readers. See Wikipedia:Alternative text for images.
photo_caption Description of the photograph which is displayed below. Include the month and year if known.
map The name of a location map as per Template:Location map (e.g. Indonesia or Russia). The coordinates template ({{coord}}) positions a pushpin marker and label on the map automatically. Example see: Mount Everest. For a static image, use |map_image=
map_image The file name of a static map image to be displayed. To use a location map, use |map=.
map_alt Alt text for the map, primarily for visually impaired readers. See Alt text for maps.
map_caption Fill out if a map caption is desired. If not specified, location will be used.
map_relief If a location map template is specified, this template will attempt to display a relief map if one is available. To force the default map image to display use |map_relief=0.
map_size Must be entered as only a number—no need for px. The default value and maximum is 272.

Dimensional parameters[change source]

highest Name of highest peak in the range
highest_location location of highest peak, e.g., country or province
elevation_m Height of highest point in the range, in meters, as a number (e.g., 8848) or interval of plus/minus spaced (8850 +/- 10). Will automatically convert to feet. The infobox uses the same rounding method as {{convert}}: it guesses the precision from the value. If an editor wishes to specify the precision, use {{convert}} and the freeform parameter, "elevation" instead.
prominence_m The clean topographic prominence of the highest point. Uses same rounding as {{convert}}.
length_km Length and width of range, in kilometers, as a number. Will automatically convert to miles. Uses same rounding as {{convert}}
width_km
area_km2 Area of range, in square kilometers, as a number. Will automatically convert to square miles. Uses same rounding as {{convert}}
length_orientation Length orientation such as N-S for North to South
width_orientation Width orientation such as E-W for East to West
elevation_ft As above, except number is expressed in U.S. units, and will automatically convert to metric. Please use only for mountain ranges in the United States. Uses same rounding as {{convert}}.
prominence_ft
length_mi
width_mi
area_mi2
elevation Free form field for expressing dimension, no automatic unit conversion. To be used instead of parameters like elevation_m or elevation_ft
prominence
length
width
area
elevation_system The elevation reference system that defines the elevation, e.g., NAVD88 or DE-NHN
elevation_note Note field after dimensional quantity, typically used for inline citation that supports the quantity
prominence_note
length_note
width_note
area_note

Coordinate parameters[change source]

There are three ways to enter the location of a mountain range, which controls the content of two different optional fields:

coordinates Coordinates for highest peak in range. Will appear under "highest point" section as a link. Use {{coord}} to specify the coordinates, ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code or an ISO 3166-2 region code, scale, dim, ... See the documentation for details.
range_coordinates Overall coordinates for range, usually the center of the range. Will appear in Geography section as "Range coordinates" and link. Use {{coord}} to specify the coordinates, ISO region, scale, dim, ...
grid_ref_UK If the mountain is in Great Britain, the British grid reference. For mountains outside of Great Britain, this field is not applicable and therefore should be removed if it is present.
grid_ref_Ireland If the mountain is in Ireland (whether Northern Ireland or the Republic), the Irish grid reference. For mountains outside Ireland, this field is not applicable and therefore should be removed if it is present.

Geographical parameters[change source]

location Free-form field describing location of range, similar to {{Infobox mountain}}
country,country1,...,country19 Countries that range spans. First use country, then country# in order. For more than four countries, infobox will automatically put into collapsed list.
country_type Alternative label for country, e.g., use Continent for ranges in Antarctica
state,state1,...,state19 States that range spans. For provinces, set state_type to "Province"
state_type Alternative label for state, e.g. Province
region,region1,...,region23 Sub-national regions that range spans.
region_type Label for sub-national regions, overriding default "State/Province"
district,district1,...,district19 Sub-regional areas that range spans, e.g., counties in the United States
district_type Label for sub-regional areas, overriding default "District"
city,city1,...,city19 Settlements within the mountain range.
city_type Label for settlements, overriding default "Settlement"
parent Parent mountain range
border,border1,...,border3 Other mountain ranges that border this one
biome Biome(s) for range
topo_maker,topo_map The publisher and name (respectively) of the topographic map that contains the range

Geological parameters[change source]

type The type of mountain — see List of mountain types.
age Age of the rock. Geologic time scales may be useful here.
volcanic_arc
volcanic_belt
volcanic_field
volcanic_arc/belt
If the mountain is a volcano, the arc, belt or field in which it is situated. Each parameter displays an appropriate label.
last_eruption The date of the last eruption if the mountain is of volcanic origin. Only use Unknown if a verifiable source such as the Global Volcanism Program states it as such.

Miscellaneous parameters[change source]

first_ascent Date of the first ascent, if known. Typically, this is the first recorded ascent but not necessarily the first true ascent. If it is quite probable the peak/mountain was ascended by local people before then, a footnote should be added.
easiest_route The easiest route to the summit. Some possibilities include Hike, Scramble or any of the YDS grades.
child "yes" if the mountain infobox is embedded inside another Infobox
embedded value = another Infobox to place within the mountain infobox. The other infobox will show up at the end of the mountain infobox. The other infobox needs to have its "embed" or "child" parameter set to 1 or yes, as appropriate.

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]
