Geography Tags

Scope and Tag Usage

The list below represents the geographical tags that can be used to describe content within WILD. Tags appear in the browse column on the left-hand-side of the screen on the home page. Tags also appear in the detailed description of individual documents. Only tags that have been selected as relevant will appear in the browse list. For example, Madagascar appears in the list below but until a document has been tagged with that term it will not appear in the browse menu. As such, the list below is far longer than what will appear in the browse menu.

NREL developed a fairly comprehensive list of geographical tags to facilitate adding new content to WILD in a rapid manner. We include the list below to let WILD users know the potential direction the database is taking and to solicit feedback regarding the tags chosen.

Several categories include a general tag [e.g., North America (general), Europe (general)]. These tags are used to label documents that describe a general geographic category. With the exception of the United States, country tags are not broken down by state, province, or other more granular categories. We are more than willing to add greater detail to this list and are open to user feedback.
