Parameter descriptions

This table describes the parameters which can be used in building an waterfall infobox. Some are alternatives: the language parameters for example and use either county or territory or county 1 and county 2: one version of these parameters must be assigned a value.

Field name Description
name The name of the waterfall. It will be displayed at the top of the infobox. In most cases this should be the same as the article name less any disambiguation. For example, if the article title is Grey Mare's Tail, Kinlochmore then name=Grey Mare's Tail.
- or other language
If there is a common English name for the waterfall use that for the name parameter, and if it is given a different name in Welsh, Gaelic etc then that parameter is used to display the name in that language. Italics should not be used: the template handles the display styling.
picture The name of an image file to be displayed. Just use the file name and extension without "File:" and without sizing codes.
picture caption The caption that will appear below the image if one is required.
Map related parameters
map Very rare, but if a map image is used, put this in as for "picture" above.
map caption The caption that appears below the map if one is required.
Coordinate related parameters
os grid ref If the waterfall is in the United Kingdom, Isle of Man of Republic of Ireland, the grid reference (GB grid or Irish grid). For waterfalls in the Channel Islands or territories, this field is inapplicable.
latitude and
The latitude and the longitude respectively, in all-numeric form.
river The name of the river, burn, etc. that the falls interrupts.
type The type of waterfall (e.g. horsetail, tiered).
height The elevation of the crest to the base of the lowest drop.
width The width of the waterfall measured at the crest.

Automatic categorisation

The infobox will automatically categorise the article using the parameters given. Firstly they will be categorised according to county / territory, using the county etc parameter(s). This is the same system as is used in just about every other infobox on Wikishire. Also certain rivers are well known or known for their waterfalls, and if river is one of these in the embedded list, then the fall will be categorised as for example 'Waterfalls on the River Tees'. (The list does not include rivers bereft of waterfalls, however large the river, so the Thames and the Trent are not included.)
