Vi:Main Page/Map/doc

From OpenStreetMap Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

This template embeds a map onto the very top of Vi:Main Page, right above the masthead.

The map displays a given location and zoom level, specified by a template (see below). To integrate the map more into the portal's design, the map is trimmed to hide the standard OpenLayers controls. (Hiding the attribution line is usually unacceptable, but it just happens that the map's attribution matches this wiki's.)

Usage

{{/Map|Place template|w=1000|h=350}}

The unnamed first parameter should be the name of a location template of the form:

{{#switch: {{{1}}}
| lat = 3.14159
| lon = 3.14159
| z = 12
}}

Some existing location templates are listed below:

Vi:Main Page/Map/HCMCVi:Main Page/Map/HanoiVi:Main Page/Map/Vietnam
Vi:Main Page/Map/doc

To make the portal appear slightly more dynamic, you can predicate the parameter's value on the day of the week or time of day. The locations can be well-mapped areas, places that have been in the news lately, or simply the world map.
