WikiProject Geographical coordinates/region:

From Qi-Hardware
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:


Examples of ISO 3166-2 codes:


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.
