[edit] Usage

{{coordinates}} gives coordinate fractions out to seven decimal places. Must be passed a date in YYYY-MM-DD format.

  • {{coordinates|2008-06-24}} gives non-adjusted coordinates for Tuesday 24 June 2008.
  • {{coordinates|2008-06-24|30w=1}} gives 30W-adjusted coordinates for the same day.
  • {{coordinates|2008-06-24|lat=42|latsign=N|long=71|longsign=W}} gives coordinates for the 42, -71 graticule for the same day. lat and long must both be positive, and latsign and longsign default to N and E respectively if excluded. Note that this does not automatically detect 30W conditions -- you still must use the 30w parameter.
