This template adds an automatically generated short description. If the automatic short description is not optimal, replace it by adding {{Short description}} at the top of article.
This template is used on approximately 542,000 pages, or roughly 1% of all pages.
To avoid major disruption and server load, any changes should be tested in the template's /sandbox or /testcases subpages, or in your own user subpage. The tested changes can be added to this page in a single edit. Consider discussing changes on the talk page before implementing them.

This template is aliased or used as a sub-template for several infobox front-end templates. It should be used to produce an Infobox for human settlements (cities, towns, villages, communities) as well as other administrative districts, counties, provinces, et cetera—in fact, any subdivision below the level of a country, for which {{Infobox country}} should be used. Parameters are described in the table below. For questions, see the talk page. For a US city guideline, see WP:USCITIES.
Usage
  • Important: Please enter all numeric values in a raw, unformatted fashion. References and {{citation needed}} tags are to be included in their respective section footnotes field. Numeric values that are not "raw" may create an "Expression error". Raw values will be automatically formatted by the template. If you find a raw value is not formatted in your usage of the template, please post a notice on the discussion page for this template.
  • An expression error may also occur when any coordinate parameter has a value, but one or more coordinate parameters are blank or invalid.
Basic blank template, ready to cut and paste. See the next section for a copy of the template with all parameters and comments. See the table below that for a full description of each parameter.

Parameter names and descriptions

Geographic information
These fields have dual automatic unit conversion meaning that if only metric values are entered, the imperial values will be automatically converted and vice versa. If an editor wishes to over-ride the automatic conversion, e.g. if the source gives both metric and imperial or if a range of values is needed, they should enter both values in their respective fields.
Parameter nameUsageDescription
Display settings
total_typeoptionalSpecifies what "total" area and population figure refer to, e.g. Greater London. This overrides other labels for total population/area. To make the total area and population display on the same line as the words "Area" and "Population", with no "Total" or similar label, set the value of this parameter to .
unit_prefoptionalTo change the unit order to imperial (metric), enter imperial. The default display style is metric (imperial). However, the template will swap the order automatically if the subdivision_name equals some variation of the US or the UK.
For the middle east, a unit preference of dunam can be entered (only affects total area).
All values must be entered in a raw format: no commas, spaces, or unit symbols. The template will format them automatically.
Area
area_footnotesoptionalReference(s) for area, placed within <ref> </ref> tags, possibly using the citing format at {{Cite web}}
dunam_linkoptionalIf dunams are used, the default is to link the word dunams in the total area section. This can be changed by setting dunam_link to another measure (e.g. dunam_link=water). Linking can also be turned off by setting the parameter to something else (e.g. dunam_link=none or dunam_link=off).
area_total_km2optionalTotal area in square kilometers—symbol: km2. Value must be entered in raw format, no commas or spaces. Auto-converted to display square miles if area_total_sq_mi is empty.
area_total_haoptionalTotal area in hectares—symbol: ha. Value must be entered in raw format, no commas or spaces. Auto-converted to display acres if area_total_acre is empty.
area_total_sq_mioptionalTotal area in square miles—symbol: sq mi. Value must be entered in raw format, no commas or spaces. Auto-converted to display square kilometers if area_total_km2 is empty.
area_total_acreoptionalTotal area in acres. Value must be entered in raw format, no commas or spaces. Auto-converted to display hectares if area_total_ha is empty.

Population, demographics
The density fields have dual automatic unit conversion meaning that if only metric values are entered, the imperial values will be automatically converted and vice versa. If an editor wishes to over-ride the automatic conversion, e.g. if the source gives both metric and imperial or if a range of values is needed, they can enter both values in their respective fields. To calculate density with respect to the total area automatically, type auto in place of any density value.

Microformat
The HTML markup produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue articles across Wikipedia, or via a browser tool operated by a person, to (for example) add the subject to an address book. Within the hCard is a Geo microformat, which additionally makes the coordinates (latitude & longitude) parsable, so that they can be, say, looked up on a map, or downloaded to a GPS unit. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.
Sub-templates
If the place or venue has "established", "founded", "opened" or similar dates, use {{start date}} for the earliest of those dates unless the date is before 1583 CE.
If it has a URL, use {{URL}}.
Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.
Classes
hCard uses HTML classes including:
adr agent category county-name​extended-address fn label localitynickname note org regionstreet-address uid url vcard
Geo is produced by calling {{coord}}, and uses HTML classes:
geo latitude longitude
Please do not rename or remove these classes nor collapse nested elements which use them.
Precision
When giving coordinates, please use an appropriate level of precision. Do not use {{coord}}'s |name= parameter.
