Module:Location map/data/South America is a location map definition used to overlay markers and labels on an equirectangular projection map of South America. The markers are placed by latitude and longitude coordinates on the default map or a similar map image.

Usage

These definitions are used by the following templates when invoked with parameter "South America":

Map definition

  • name = South America
    Name used in the default map caption
  • image = South_America_laea_location map.svg
    The default map image, without "Image:" or "File:"
  • image1 = South_America_laea_relief_location_map.jpg
    An alternative map image, usually a relief map, which can be displayed via the relief or AlternativeMap parameters
  • x = (99.3492)*( cos( $1*0.01745329252 )*sin( ($2+60)*0.01745329252 ) ) * ( ((1 + sin( $1*0.01745329252 )*sin( -17.5*0.01745329252 ) + cos( $1*0.01745329252 )*cos( -17.5*0.01745329252 )*cos( ($2+60)*0.01745329252 ) ) *0.5)^ -0.5) + 50
    An expression to calculate a location on the map via its longitude; evaluates as 0 along the left edge and 100 along the right edge
  • y = (100-51.2026) - (67.3182)*( cos( -17.5*0.01745329252 )*sin( $1*0.01745329252 ) - sin( -17.5*0.01745329252 )*cos( $1*0.01745329252 )*cos( ($2+60)*0.01745329252 ) ) * ( ((1 + sin( $1*0.01745329252 )*sin( -17.5*0.01745329252 ) + cos( $1*0.01745329252 )*cos( -17.5*0.01745329252 )*cos( ($2+60)*0.01745329252 ) ) *0.5)^ -0.5)
    An expression to calculate a location on the map via its latitude; evaluates as 0 along the top edge and 100 along the bottom edge

Alternative map

The {{Location map}}, {{Location map many}}, and {{Location map+}} templates have parameters to specify an alternative map image. The map displayed as image1 can be used with the relief or AlternativeMap parameters. Examples may be found below or in the following:
