Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]

This template is used for referencing maps published by Microsoft through their Bing Maps service.

It can also be set to emulate CS2 style.

Note that unlike paper maps, Bing Maps offers dynamic sizing at variable scales. Major citation style guides omit a map scale in that situation so this template does not render any scale output.



  • {{Bing maps | url = | title=Grand Rapids, MI | accessdate = 20 April 2019 }}

generates this:

  • Microsoft; Nokia (20 April 2019). "Grand Rapids, MI" (Map). Bing Maps. Microsoft. Retrieved 20 April 2019.


  • url: the URL for the map in question
  • title: a "subtitle" for the map. The link text will appear as "<title>" if "title" is used; otherwise, it will be the page name.
  • accessdate: the full retrieval date.
  • link: set to no to unlink the authors.
  • mode: set to "cs2" to use Citation Style 2 output
  • last-author-amp: to join the authors with an ampersand (&) instead of a semicolon (;) for consistency with other citations in an article
