Template intended to simplify adding a standardized and formatted caption below a map indicating the location of something (e.g. a country), possibly referring to the map's main region and optionally also to a shown subregion. Original use within infoboxes (e.g. see articles on European countries). For a complete set of elements of reasonable length, a width of (minimally) 250px (without extra padding or margins) should be available.
Required parameters shown in bold italics
- In case the name of any article or redirect page on this Wikipedia is given for a country, region or subregion (without other characters in the parameter), the template automatically creates a link. It is nevertheless possible to pass a parameter between linking brackets [[...]] and such is required in case only a part of the parameter should be linked or in case a link should reach an article by another name using syntax [[...|...]].
|Code||Raw result (in unformatted box, compare to handling in Infobox)|
| Typical sample for an article on a European Union member that needs no "the" before its name, for otherwise identical output:|
|Infobox usage of code (as intended) — wherein the alignment, the padding/margins, and font are rendered differently (this template adjusts for that infobox):|
|Sample for article named 'Armenia', about a non-European country|
