Built-in geographical areas

This page list the buil-in geographical areas available in MIDOP.

Please, note that these areas are by no means linked to any particular geopolitical view, it is just a technical solution to geographically subdivide the globe.
Areas are built to balance the need of being able to self-contain earthquakes on a particular region, and the need to avoid too much distortion caused by the UTM projection, the only projection supported by MIDOP.
