Maps enables you to display a map by using the #display_map parser function. Such a map will centre itself around a provided location, which can be a set of coordinates, or an address. In the later case, it will be automatically geocoded. You do not need to specify if the provided value is a set of coordinates or an address, this will be automatically determined.

The following code will result in a map of moscow.

{{#display_map: Moscow}}

Or

{{#display_map: 55°45′06″N 37°37′04″E}}

The above examples demonstrate the use of addresses and DMS coordinates. You can also use the other supported coordinate notations.

You can further customize your map by adding additional map properties.
