Purpose[އުނިއިތުރު ގެންނަވާ]

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[އުނިއިތުރު ގެންނަވާ]

  • 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

Other guidelines[އުނިއިތުރު ގެންނަވާ]

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 use of this template for mountains is not supported. The relevant code has been removed. Use

{{Infobox mountain}} instead.

  • The use of this template for mountain ranges is not supported. The relevant code has been removed. Use

{{Infobox mountain range}} instead.

  • The use of this template for provinces is deprecated. Use

{{Infobox settlement}} instead. The former provinces instances have been replaced.

  • The use of this template for boroughs is deprecated. Use

{{Infobox settlement}} instead. The former borough instances have been replaced.

  • The use of this template for townships is deprecated. Use

{{Infobox settlement}} instead. The former township instances have been replaced.

  • The use of this template for settlement is deprecated. Use

{{Infobox settlement}} instead.

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