Purpose[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

These geoboxes were created:

  • To provide a means for creating consistently-formatted tables and summarizing information
  • To improve navigation between articles within closely-related subjects
  • To maximize the ease of creating and upgrading infoboxes
  • To improve the ease of transferring information to other language Wikipedias by using standardized, database-like fields

Features[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

  • no need to format the input data in any way; it is handled by the template
  • automated locator dot placement on maps, based on coordinates or X/Y values
  • automated unit conversion from metric to imperial or reverse
  • automated wikilinking
  • additional fields
  • background maps
  • foldable list on all multiple fields
  • international categories, (e.g., World Heritage Site), eliminating the need for a second infobox on the same page

Tracking categories[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

Other guidelines[ಬದಲಾಯಿಸಿ]

This general, multi-purpose geobox template duplicates features contained in various other, more specific geography and place infobox templates (like {{Infobox settlement}} for settlements, and {{Infobox protected area}} for protected areas. In general, editors should not change from one to the other without good reason or broad consensus.

Exceptions where broad consensus has been achieved are:

The last major merge/deletion discussion of this template was held in January 2012, which resulted in no consensus.
