APO’s website offers a number of ways to search and browse content. We have recently improved the way that you can find policy information that is relevant to a specific region or place.
APO publishes a geographical taxonomy of place names that can be used to browse and ‘drill down’ to content that is clustered around a region, country, province or city.
To make the most of APO’s geographical taxonomy feature, try browsing for resources about a place of interest:
- Navigate to Browse from the home page
- Scroll to the Geographic Location block of links
- Select a term (e.g. ‘Middle East’).
You will notice on the right-hand side of your results that more specific place names appear and can be selected to further refine results.
Select a more specific geographical feature, and the overall number of items reduces with content closely fitted with the geographical area:
When a resource is selected, there may be more geographical features listed in the resource metadata which link to more content:
APO’s geographical taxonomy is a search feature that helps you find a range of policy information about a given place of interest. As more resources are added to APO, the geographical taxonomy is updated to reflect the growing database of policy information. We hope you find this feature useful.
