Module:Location map/data/USA Cape Cod is a location map definition used to overlay markers and labels on an equirectangular projection map of Cape Cod. 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 "USA Cape Cod":

Map definition

  • name = Cape Cod
    Name used in the default map caption
  • bottom = 41.488985

  • left = -70.84478
    Longitude at left edge of map, in decimal degrees
  • right = -69.77812
    Longitude at right edge of map, in decimal degrees

Location map+

Template:Cape Cod Lighthouses Here is a fairly complex real-world example, showing 17 points and linked labels in a small 320px image. Careful experimentation with "Template:Para" and "Template:Para" allows us to legibly label the points:
