As well as Tagging geographical areas we should also make tags for geographical zones:

I think especially the and tags are needed to denote special (for us unusual, extreme) conditions needed to consider for that particular question, like:

"How to keep my electronics from humidity in tropics?"

"Wild camping in tropics"

I think this is a good suggestion - for questions where climate matters. It shouldn't be mandatory for all questions (like the question about navigating in fog; fog is fog, no matter where you are). Extreme temperature zones definitely warrant special considerations, but not every question here needs to specify what the climate is.

  • Laura, completely agree - my motivation is to use these tags to mark activities in tropical / polar zones, not for all questions, of course.

I agree that these broad geographic tags can and should be used, but only when the answer applies to at least most of the zone, as I describe in my answer here.

  • well, depends on a question - I may ask some more general question but as I go to Cuba, I put it in a special context. Then I may also add tag tropic to attract people subscribed to this broader tag, who might help me from more general point of view.
