When adding to an existing expedition images gallery, just copy one of the GalleryItem lines and modify it for your expedition:

[edit] Formatting

Each line, except for the comments, in the template is to be in the format:

{{ GalleryItem | File:IMAGE NAME | LOCATION | MEETUP PAGE TITLE }}

  • Image names should conform to the standard YYYY-MM-DD LAT LON DESCRIPTION or YYYY-MM-DD global DESCRIPTION naming method.
  • Location names should be brief, but descriptive... generally "City, Country" (or "City, State" in the case of the United States). If left blank, the coordinates are displayed.
  • Meetup pages should conform to the standard YYYY-MM-DD LAT LON or YYYY-MM-DD global.
    • Generally speaking, one should include the location of the geohash itself; however, in cases where this might be ambiguous or otherwise confusing, the graticule name as listed at All Graticules will suffice.
