represents a geographic object obj with qualifier qual.


  • The geographic object obj can be an Entity object, an EntityClass object, or a string representing an entity type such as "Country".
  • Possible qualifiers include:
  • Automatic region returned when no GeoVariant is specified
    "AllAreas"all legal territories (e.g. US including e.g. Guam)
    "DefaultMapArea"area used for standard maps
    "PrincipalArea"main territories
    "SimplifiedArea"low-resolution schematic region
  • Geo variants can be used for countries, oceans, cities, and other objects.
  • Unlike GeoGroup, which combines multiple entities, GeoVariant allows specification of a particular variant of a single entity.
