  • name = Africa
    Name used in the default map caption
  • x = 48.852459016393 + 71.1 * cos({{{2}}} * pi / 180) * sin(({{{3}}} - 15) * pi / 180) * (((1 + cos({{{2}}} * pi / 180) * cos(({{{3}}} - 15) * pi / 180)) * 0.5) ^ - 0.5 )
    An expression to calculate a location on the map via its longitude; evaluates as 0 along the left edge and 100 along the right edge
  • y = 51.180555555556 - 75.3 * sin({{{2}}} * pi / 180) * (((1 + cos({{{2}}} * pi / 180) * cos(({{{3}}} - 15) * pi / 180)) * 0.5) ^ -0.5)
    An expression to calculate a location on the map via its latitude; evaluates as 0 along the top edge and 100 along the bottom edge
