Alternate region containment

Reported by: pedberg Owned by: pedberg
Component: supplemental Data Locale:
Phase: rc Review:
Weeks: Data Xpath:



In user interfaces that allow selection of a region from among lists grouped hierarchically e.g. by continent (see attached screenshot), it is often useful to have a region show up in multiple categories; it may be a country that is actually in two continents (Turkey or Russia), or is often logically grouped with countries in a different continent (e.g. Egypt with middle eastern countries, or all EU countries under Europe). To facilitate this it would help to have data that provides an additional grouping value beyond the standard UN M49 grouping, for example (alternate groupings used by OS X Language & Preferences pane):

country       UN M49          alternate
code          grouping        grouping

AM Armenia    145 W Asia      039 S Europe (or 151 E Europe?)
CY Cyprus     145 W Asia      039 S Europe (or 151 E Europe?)
EG Egypt      015 N Africa    145 W Asia
GE Georgia    145 W Asia      039 S Europe (or 151 E Europe?)
RU Russia     151 E Europe    143 Central Asia
TR Turkey     145 W Asia      039 S Europe (or 151 E Europe?)
