Dimensional data

This template includes code that allows input of dimensional information: any of height, width, length, and diameter, as well as a freeform parameter for adding nonstandard information.

There are 11 parameters, of which most fall into two groups of unit types:

  • height_imperial, width_imperial, length_imperial, and diameter_imperial define the respective values for Imperial or US customary units like the foot or inch.
  • height_metric, width_metric, length_metric, and diameter_metric define the respective values for SI (metric) units like the metre or centimetre (or, in U.S. spelling, the meter and centimeter).

Once raw numerical values are established in the above parameters, the units are set in the imperial_unit and metric_unit parameters, which default to inches and centimetres respectively.

If information is provided in only one unit system, it is automatically converted to the other using the unit that is defined for that system. In general, this should be used, as for most pieces of artwork measurements will only be taken in one unit system.

Users should take care to avoid false precision: measurements should be provided in the same unit, and with the same number of significant digits, as when they were taken. "1 metre" is far less precise than "1000.00 millimetres", even though they are in theory the same length!

If additional dimensional data is needed, the dimensions parameter can be used to add freeform information to the end of the rendered string. This parameter accepts raw wikitext and is not subject to any automatic conversion or modification—{{convert}} would have to be used manually.

Microformat

The HTML mark up produced by this template includes an hCalendar microformat, which makes the event details 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 a calendar or diary application. For more information about the use of microformats on Wikipedia, please see the microformat project.

Sub-templates

Dates will only be included if you use {{Start date}} or {{End date}} (use the former for single dates; but do not use any of these if the date is before 1583 CE).

URLs will only be included if you use {{URL}}.

Please do not remove instances of these sub-templates.

Classes

hCalendar uses HTML classes including:

  • attendee
  • contact
  • description
  • dtend
  • dtstart
  • location
  • organiser
  • summary
  • url
  • vevent

Please do not rename or remove these classes; nor collapse nested elements which use them.
