We have a fair number of questions involving geographic information; a search for CountryData returns 19 hits alone and there are other examples of questions concerning maps in one form or another. Most of these have the tag. I wonder if we should have some more specific tag concerning ? We have a tag, but that is really something different from most of these questions.

  • spatial? or geography? – Verbeia Oct 4 '12 at 11:27

    Sounds like a good idea to me. Yes, geography and geodesy are separate subjects. – J. M. will be back soon Oct 4 '12 at 11:28
  • I like geography, myself. If a few others chime in positively, then I'll add it. – Mark McClure Oct 4 '12 at 11:28
  • I also approve geography so long as the question actually is about geography and not just e.g. list-processing. I'll help tag if you ask, otherwise have at it. – Mr.Wizard Oct 4 '12 at 11:38
  • OK, sounds sufficient. I've never created a tag before so I'll give it a try. – Mark McClure Oct 4 '12 at 11:41
  • I already wrote a tag description for starters. If you've got additions/edits, put them in! – J. M. will be back soon Oct 4 '12 at 11:55
  • Ahh... I forgot the description! Like I said, it's my first tag. Thanks, I'll take a look. – Mark McClure Oct 4 '12 at 11:58
  • I don't think we need the geodesy tag. Not only has it only been used once, the word "geodesy" doesn't appear in any other question, and probably never will either. So far the word "geography" only appears twice, but I think that is a better tag candidate than geodesy. – stevenvh Oct 5 '12 at 7:20
  • I'm closing this, because otherwise the Community ♦ user will keep bumping this to the top of the list every couple of weeks even though it is resolved :) – rm -rf Oct 17 '12 at 17:04
