The globe: parameter specifies the planet, dwarf planet, asteroid, or natural satellite upon which the coordinates reside. Apart from earth (the default), recognized values are: mercury, venus, moon, mars, phobos, deimos, ceres, vesta, jupiter, ganymede, callisto, io, europa, mimas, enceladus, tethys, dione, rhea, titan, hyperion, iapetus, phoebe, miranda, ariel, umbriel, titania, oberon, triton, pluto, and charon.

Very rough mapping is provided on geohack for almost all supported globes. The pop-out WikiMiniAtlas system provides limited mapping for Moon, Mars, Mercury, Venus, Io, and Titan, as of February 2021.

The maps roughly implies a coordinate reference system, but does not clearly specify one (unlike Earth's WGS84). Since the template defaults to east longitude, the |W| direction must be specified for globes that measure longitude westward. For celestial coordinates, use {{Sky}} instead.
