Project:WikiProject Geographical coordinates/region:

From PsychonautWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The region: parameter specifies the political region for terrestrial coordinates. It is used to select appropriate map resources. If no region: parameter is provided, GeoHack attempts to determine the region from the coordinates.

The region should be supplied as either a two character ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country code or an ISO 3166-2 region code.

Examples of ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 codes:

  • AQ Antarctica
  • AU Australia
  • BR Brazil
  • DE Germany
  • GB United Kingdom
  • HK Hong Kong
  • IN India
  • LK Sri Lanka
  • RU Russia
  • US United States

Examples of ISO 3166-2 region codes:

  • DE-TH Thuringia, Germany
  • GB-BIR Birmingham, England
  • NO-03 Oslo, Norway
  • US-NY New York state, USA

The oceans have the following Wiki assigned code elements per de:Vorlage:Coordinate#Ozeane.

  • XN Arctic Ocean
  • XA Atlantic Ocean
  • XI Indian Ocean
  • XP Pacific Ocean
  • XS Southern Ocean

In addition, two Wiki assigned code elements can be used with {{coord}}:

  • XZ for objects in or above international waters (similar to UN/LOCODE).
  • ZZ for use in examples.
