Directories that list sites according to their location rather than topic are listed in this category. Additionally, general web directories whose focus is limited to a specific continent, nation, region, state, city or community should be listed in the appropriate subcategory.

For the purposes of categorization, the WDR Directory of Directories will be listing English-language regional directories by continent, further subcategorizing them as needed.

While this may sound simple, it isn't. First of all, there is no agreement on what constitutes a continent. A continent is defined as one of several major land masses on the earth, but there is no standard agreement on the number of continents that exist on the earth.

Growing up in the United States, I learned that there were seven continents: Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America.

However, students in Europe and other parts of the world were taught that there were only six continents, with North and South America combined to form the continent of America. Thus, in this model, the continents are Africa, America, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, and Europe.

Another model claims that there are eight continents, counting Central America as a continent in its own right. Under that model, the continents of the earth are Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Central America, Europe, North America, and South America.

Others, particularly those in the scientific community, refer to another six-continent model, where Europe and Asia are combined, since they do consist of one geologic landmass, referring to this continent as Eurasia. In this model, the continents would be Africa, Antarctica, Australia, Eurasia, North America, and South America.

Geographers often divide the earth into regions, rather than continents. Although there are differing opinions among geographers, the most common regional divisions are Asia, the Middle East and North Africa, Europe, North America, Central America and the Caribbean, South America, Africa, and Australia and Oceania.

Oceania is a term often used to describe a region centered on the islands of the Pacific Ocean, which are not, technically, a part of the same geographic land mass as Australia. As these islands are in the proximity of Australia, Oceania is often grouped together with Australia, and referred to as Australia and Oceania, or by including Australia within Oceania, or vice versa.

The WDR Directory of Directories will be using the seven-continent model generally taught in the United States and other Western countries, using, as the major subcategories of Regional: Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America, and South America, although these subcategories will not be created until or unless we have directory listings that require them.

If you would like to submit an English-language web directory that is specific to a nation or continent not represented here, please submit it to the main Regional category, and an appropriate category will be created for it.
