Geobox 2 keeps the same functionality as Geobox 1[संपादन]

Note: there is no need to format the input data in any way, it is now handled by the template

  • automated locator dot placement on maps, based on coordinates or X/Y values
  • automated unit conversion from metric to imperial or reverse
  • automated wikilinking

New features[संपादन]

  • additional fields
  • automated country and state flags
  • background maps
  • foldable list on all multiple fields
  • international categories, (e.g., World Heritage Site), eliminating the need for a second infobox on the same page

Why were these geoboxes created?[संपादन]

  • To provide a means for creating consistently-formatted tables and summarizing information
  • To improve navigation between articles within closely-related subjects
  • To maximize the ease of creating and upgrading infoboxes
  • To improve the ease of transferring information to other language Wikipedias by using standardized, database-like fields
