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 avaiable within the coord template.

See the sample page to see how this template is rendered.

Microformat[baguhin ang batayan]

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.

hCard uses HTML classes including:

  • "adr"
  • "county-name"
  • "fn"
  • "label"
  • "locality"
  • "nickname"
  • "note"
  • "org"
  • "region"
  • "street-address"
  • "vcard"

Geo is produced by calling {{coord}}, and uses HTML classes:

  • "geo"
  • "latitude"
  • "longitude"

Please do not rename or remove these classes.

When giving coordinates, please don't be overly precise.
