Template:Oscoor/doc

   Template:Template doc page viewed directly

This template creates a link to a list of map sources. It is the same as Template:coor but uses a UK Ordnance Survey grid reference as the coordinates.

Warning

This is an experimental facility. By all means use it, but to avoid problems when things change:

  • definitely do not create any links to the external URL which this template calls
  • do not use this template directly in any article
  • instead use one of the templates which use this one. Or create a new template.

Usage

Use:

{{oscoor|cc|tt}}

Where:

  • cc is the grid reference in one of the formats listed below followed, optionally, by any additional parameters. For example: TQ123456_region:GB_scale:25000
  • tt is the text to appear in the link.

Grid reference formats - letters are not case-sensitive:

  Great Britain
888_999 Two decimal numbers - eastings then northings in metres
separated by an underscore (for consistency with {{coor}})
Eg.: Template:Oscoor
SE Standard grid references.
In each of these cases, the actual coordinates passed to the map sources page will be the centre of the square that the grid ref defines
SE16
SE1267
SE123678
SE12346789
SE1234567890 Full "ten figure" grid reference
  Ireland - proposed - not yet implemented
i888_999 Letter 'i' followed by two decimal numbers - eastings then northings in metres
separated by an underscore
R Standard grid references.
In each of these cases, the actual coordinates passed to the map sources page will be the centre of the square that the grid ref defines
R16
R1267
R123678
R12346789
R1234567890 Full "ten figure" grid reference
