Infobox U.S. County is the standard infobox used for all county articles in the United States. There are other templates that are helpful for U.S. County Articles:

  • USCensusPop - lists the population of the county per decade.
  • Coord - a cool template that displays the coordinates of the county. Notes about this one:
    • If a user enters the lat deg and long deg variables on this template, "coord" displays by default with "0" values for minutes.
    • A user can enter all four variables if necessary: lat deg, lat min, long deg, long min.
    • For more advanced syntax usage of the "coord" template, do not use latitude/longitude but manually add "coord" to the article using the alternative syntax available within the coord template.

Microformat

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCard microformat, which makes the place-name and location parsable by computers, either acting automatically to catalogue article 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 an "established", "founded", "opened" or similar date, use {{Start date}} (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
  • locality
  • nickname
  • note
  • org
  • region
  • street-address
  • 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 don't be overly precise.ar:قالب:معلومات مقاطعة أمريكية bar:Vorlage:Infobox County (Vereinigte Staaten) da:Skabelon:Infoboks amt i USA de:Vorlage:Infobox County (Vereinigte Staaten) en:Template:Infobox U.S. county es:Plantilla:Ficha de condado de Estados Unidos eo:Ŝablono:Informkesto usona kantono fr:Modèle:Infobox Comté des États-Unis frr:Vorlage:Infobox County (Vereinigte Staaten) öömrang hr:Predložak:Infookvir SAD okrug id:Templat:Infobox U.S. County ja:Template:Infobox U.S. County no:Mal:Infoboks USA fylke nds:Vörlaag:Infobox US-Kreis pt:Predefinição:Info/Condado dos Estados Unidos ro:Format:Infobox comitat SUA sv:Mall:Infobox USA-county tl:Suleras:Infobox U.S. County ur:سانچہ:Infobox U.S. county vi:Bản mẫu:Infobox U.S. County zh:Template:Infobox U.S. County
