Template:Documentation subpage Template:Infobox body of water

This template can be used to add comparative, at-a-glance material to articles on lakes, oceans, bays, and similar water bodies. If there is a single article for the reservoir and the dam, please use instead of this template the integrated dam infobox template (:template:Infobox dam).

Parameters

name
name of the body of water. Avoid using templates, boldface or italics in this field.
native_name
name in local language. If more than one, separate using Template:Tl
native_name_lang
ISO 639-2 code e.g. "fr" for French. If more than one, use Template:Tl instead
other_name
Local, alternative or former names. Separate multiple values by using Template:Tlx or Template:Tlx.
image
characteristic_image.png Please avoid sunset pictures or maps (For maps, use image_bathymetry).
If missing, the article is added to Category:Wikipedia infobox body of water articles without image
see also: Wikipedia:WikiProject Lakes/Galleries
alt
Alt text describing the image, for visually impaired readers and other applications where the image cannot be seen
caption
Text about the image; avoid repeating the name of the body of water, it's already in the first field of the infobox.
image_bathymetry
bathymetry_image.png (or other image, avoid maps showing only the location of the body of water)
alt_bathymetry
Alt text for the bathymetry (or other) image
caption_bathymetry
Text about the bathymetry (or other) image
location
Text about the body of water's location. Note the town/state/region in which the body water is located. Names are listed in wikified form, without flags.
Add the country only if the body of water is located in several countries or if there are several basin countries, but only one country in which the body of water is located.
coords
Latitude and Longitude coordinates of the body of water. It is common to use the approximate center of the body of water, or simply any notable portion of the body of water for the coordinates. Coordinates are generally displayed in the infobox and on the top corner of the articles. For more, see WP:GEO and WP:Obtaining geographic coordinates
Sample coordinates: {{coord|47|01|10|N|8|24|04|E|type:waterbody_region:CH|display =inline,title}}
Coordinates-"Type:" for a body of water is "waterbody".
If missing, the article is placed in Category:Wikipedia infobox body of water articles without coordinates
type
type of lake. If it's a reservoir, add "reservoir".
For typologies, see Wikipedia_talk:WikiProject_Lakes#Lake_types and Lake#Types_of_lakes
Samples values with wikimarkup (only one or a few may apply): periglacial, subglacial lake, artificial lake reservoir, endorheic, meromictic, oxbow lake, rift lake, underground lake, crater lake, intermittent lake, former lake, shrunken lake; oligotrophic, mesotropic, eutrophic lake, hypertrophic
inflow
major inflow sources — rivers, aquifers, glacial runoff, etc.
Use italics for any terms that are not place names, e.g. none
outflow
outflow waterway names.
If evaporation or seepage are notable outflows, they may be included.
Use italics for any terms that are not place names, e.g. evaporation
catchment
the area of catchment (in square kilometres) which includes the entire area of the drainage basin for that body of water. This may include rivers and other bodies of water. If this can be accompanied with a map or drawing, include it with the article.
Sample value: {{convert|2124|km2|sqmi|abbr=on}}
basin_countries
which countries have drainage to/from or border the body of water. To conform a standard, this should include all countries that are directly involved with the body of water's ecology; this would include inflows, outflows, or physically contact the body of water.
Countries are listed in unwikified form, without flags. For Antarctica, use "(Antarctica)".
agency
managing or owning organisation
designation
protected status as a nature reserve, etc.
date-built
date construction the body of water/reservoir started, if man-made.
date-flooded
date the body of water/reservoir was first flooded, if man-made or otherwise recent.
length
maximum length of the body of water in km, statute mile, and/or nautical miles; the length of the body of water at its longest dimension.
Sample value: {{convert|100|km|mi|abbr=on}}
width
maximum width of the body of water in km, statute mile, and/or nautical miles; perpendicular to the angle used to calculate length.
Sample value: {{convert|50|km|mi|abbr=on}}
area
total area of the body of water's surface in square kilometres, square miles, acres, or hectares; if this value varies drastically (due to evaporation or changes in flow), attempt to find a documented average value.
Sample conversion for imperial units: {{convert|1234|acre|abbr=on}} this renders as: Template:Convert
depth
Average depth of the body of water in metres, fathoms, and/or feet
Sample conversion for imperial units: {{convert|123|ft|abbr=on}} this renders as: Template:Convert
max-depth
Maximum depth of the body of water in metres, fathoms, and/or feet.
Sample value: {{convert|10|m|ft|abbr=on}}
volume
total volume of the body of water (cubic metres, cubic kilometres, cubic miles [cu mi], and/or acre-feet)
Sample value: 11.8 km³</nowiki>
To convert acre-feet, use {{convert|1234567|acre.ft|abbr=on}} this renders as Template:Convert
residence_time
residence time of the body of water or lake retention time (generally in years). This is the mean time water spends in the body of water.
shore
length of the shoreline in kilometres and statute miles; this should not include values for waterways directly connected to the body of water, and should reflect the shore at average surface area.
Sample value: {{convert|75|km|mi|abbr=on}}
elevation
elevation above sea-level in meters; again, if this value varies due to variable inflow or outflow, attempt to use a documented average value. If at all possible, state the date at which the elevation was measured.
Sample value: {{convert|150|m|ft|abbr=on}}
islands
total number of islands in the body of water; it is common practice to also include the names of any notable islands in the body of water.
islands_category
if there is a specific category for articles about islands in the body of water, it can be added in this field (e.g. Islands of the Caspian Sea). "Islands" in the infobox then links to this category instead of Category:Islands in lakes.
cities
notable cities or settlements on or near the shore of the body of water.
frozen
Information about freezing: e.g. usual freezing date, months the body of water is frozen, last years the body of water was frozen, never, etc.
reference
references for some or all of the values. Rather than including full references in any of the previous fields, <ref name ="multiple"> and </ref> should be used in this field and cross-referenced in the other fields with <ref name ="multiple"/>. See Help:Footnotes on how to use the tags.
align
"align =left" allows to align the infobox left (default is right). This avoids collision with another infobox.

Imperial units should be converted to metric units, preferably using Template:Tl, e.g. {{convert|1234|acre|abbr=on}} this renders as Template:Convert

Maintenance categories

The infobox has several maintenance categories connected to it:

  • Category:Wikipedia infobox body of water articles without image (if image is missing)
  • Category:Wikipedia infobox body of water articles without coordinates (if coords is missing)
  • Category:Wikipedia infobox body of water articles using duplicate parameters (if specific duplicate fields are used)
  • Category:Wikipedia infobox body of water articles using deprecated parameters (if purely numeric values are used with non-numeric fields)
  • Category:Wikipedia infobox body of water articles needing maintenance (if specific fields are missing, or included, see category description)

The categories are hidden, i.e. the aren't visible in the standard display of the articles (see WP:Hidden_categories).
