List of places
United Kingdom
53°45′N 5°00′W / 53.75°N 5°W / 53.75; -5

{{Infobox UK place}} is intended for use with articles about places (i.e. human settlements) in the United Kingdom. It has provision for a location map, images, captions, and detailed information about the place e.g. population, governance, and public services. There is an associated Template:Infobox UK feature which operates in a similar manner and is intended for features such as bridges, castles, and hills which do not require the options about governance etc.

Basic syntax

Examples are available showing typical infoboxes together with the code for those examples. This code can be cut and pasted into new articles. The samples provided are:

Isle of Man
Northern Ireland
Scotland
Wales
England – these can have differing structures:
Greater London
City of London
Metropolitan county (Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Tyne and Wear, South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, West Midlands)
Shire district in a shire county
...within a parish of the same name
Unitary district within a shire
Standalone unitary (Herefordshire, Rutland, Bristol, Isle of Wight)

Full syntax

Parameters

For automated features

Feature Required fields
Basic function official_name – defaults to {{{PAGENAME}}}
country (?)
England only: region (?)
Maps coordinates
country
England only: region (= London) OR metropolitan_county OR shire_county OR unitary_england (= Bristol, Isle of Wight, Southampton)
Scotland only: unitary_scotland

Note that by default, the coordinates are displayed to the right of the title, at the top of the page. This can cause an error if there is more than one set of coordinates in the article. To override the display in the title, use |display=inline inside of {{Coord}}.

If you wish to include an additional custom {{location map}} (typically for the local area), use |pushpin_map=location map name where location map name is the name of the location map.

Services country
unitary_scotland (?) OR unitary_england (?) OR unitary_northern_ireland (?) OR unitary_wales (?) OR london_borough (?) OR metropolitan_borough (?) OR shire_district (?)
England only: shire_county (?) OR metropolitan_county (?) OR lieutenancy_england (?)
England only: region
Vale of White Horse and Hart districts only: ambulance_service (needs to be populated)
Postal post_town (?)
postcode_area (?)
postcode_district
European Parliament country
England only: region
London Assembly london_borough
Footer lists country
london_borough OR shire_county OR metropolitan_county OR lieutenancy_england OR unitary_scotland OR unitary_wales OR lieutenancy_northern_ireland

Commonly used

Although not required for any of the automation, the following fields should normally be filled in
  • constituency_westminster (?)
  • map_alt
  • os_grid_reference OR irish_grid_reference
  • dial_code (this may be of help finding the dialling code)
  • Northern Ireland only: lieutenancy_northern_ireland (?)
  • Wales only: lieutenancy_wales (?)
  • Scotland only: lieutenancy_scotland (?)

For optional features

Optional feature Required fields
Other language names gaelic_name OR scots_name OR welsh_name OR irish_name OR cornish_name OR manx_name
Any other language name other_language AND other_language_name
local_name
Languages spoken language
Static image(s) static_image (deprecated)
static_image_name
static_image_width - defaults to 240px wide to match the maps.
static_image_caption
static_image_alt (see WP:ALT)
static_image_2 (deprecated)
static_image_2_name
static_image_2_width - defaults to 240px wide to match the maps.
static_image_2_caption
static_image_2_alt
Map label position label_position
Used to adjust position of label by dot on map– options are top, bottom, left, right, or none – defaults to right
Area area_total_sq_mi
area_total_km2
area_footnotes
Only one value needs to be entered as a number and it will be automatically formatted and converted to opposite system
Population figures population – must be a number
population_density – will be calculated automatically if area and population are present
population_ref
(A good place to find the population figures is at neighbourhood.statistics.gov.uk)
For Census 2001 use | population_ref = <ref>[[United Kingdom Census 2001|Census 2001]]</ref>
Distance from capitals Replace <capital> with belfast, cardiff, douglas, dublin, edinburgh, or london
<capital>_distance_mi
<capital>_distance_km
Only one value needs to be entered as a number and it will be automatically formatted and converted to opposite system
<capital>_distance
Used for footnotes or direction – see Boxing the compass
<capital_direction>
Enter direction to capital e.g. W, E, NE, SW – it will be linked to Boxing the compass
(Distances "as the crow flies" can be found from Genuki, or postcode.org.uk)
Distance within London Same as Distance from capitals above – replace <capital> with charingX
Civil parish or Community civil_parish OR community_wales (?) OR community_scotland (?)
iso_code ISO 3166 code; e.g. GB-BIR for Birmingham. If no specific code exists, the next highest-level code may be used, so again use GB-BIR for Bournville, which is part of Birmingham.
Website link website
WARNING: overlong urls may result in the sides of the infobox being pushed sideways.
If so, use a short link to the url e.g. [longurl.co.uk/home.html Short name]
embedded Embed another infobox in this one
pushpin_map Allows selection of another location map (e.g. Oxford (central)). This will combine with the default by radio button - (show within custom.name <default>, show default.name, show all)

Places split by boundaries

Places split by boundaries

Many locations straddle the boundaries of post towns, constituencies, districts or regions. Where a place straddles these, they can be accommodated with its own field:

  • post_town AND post_town1 AND post_town2
  • civil_parish AND civil_parish1AND civil_parish2
  • shire_district AND shire_district1 AND shire_district2
  • region AND region1
  • westminster_constituency AND westminster_constituency1 AND westminster_constituency2

There are slightly more "esoteric" extras to handle some tricky situations of division splits, which, if needed, can be explained by contacting one of the users involved in this template's construction.

Microformat

The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to an address book. Within the hCard is a Geo microformat, which additionally makes the coordinates (latitude & longitude) parsable, so that they can be, say, looked up on a map, or downloaded to a GPS unit. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

If the place or venue has "established", "founded", "opened" or similar dates, use {{start date}} for the earliest of those dates unless the date is before 1583 CE.

If it has a URL, use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • adr
  • agent
  • category
  • county-name
  • extended-address
  • fn
  • label
  • locality
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • uid
  • url
  • vcard

Geo is produced by calling {{coord}}, and uses HTML classes:

  • geo
  • latitude
  • longitude

Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.

Precision

When giving coordinates, please use an appropriate level of precision. Do not use {{coord}}'s |name= parameter.
