This is the documentation page for Module:Coordinates

Note: The code which this module's main function (coord) outputs is directly parsed and/or manipulated by Module:Location map and other functions of this module itself (coord2text and coordinsert). If the structure of the output changes (for example, to use the <mapframe> and <maplink> tags), please update the aforementioned scripts as well.

Using the module with coordinsert[edit]

When using the {{Coord}} template inside another template, like an infobox, there may be parameters (like type:airport) which should be added automatically. To do so, do something like this:


Do not add more vertical bars | than necessary.

Using the module with coord2text to extract latitude or longitude[edit]

Developers maintaining legacy code may need to extract latitude or longitude to use a parameters in other code, or a mathematical expression. The module's "coord2text" function can be used to extract data from the {{Coord}} template. To extract the latitude from a Coord template, use:


To extract the longitude, use:

{{#invoke:coordinates|coord2text|{{Coord|57|18|22|N|4|27|32|E}}|long}}Lua error: bad argument #1 to 'len' (string expected, got nil).
