National emblem of Bangladesh.svg Scope

Administrative units of Bangladesh as in divisions, districts, upazilas (for non-metropolitan areas) and thanas (for metropolitan areas) come within the scope of this workgroup, as well as the metropolitan and municipal areas. Rivers, islands, hills and forests also fall within the scope. So does the geology of Bangladesh.

The aim of this project is to standardize, improve and monitor articles related to Geography of Bangladesh, as well as to create missing articles, especially for Populated places and subdivisions.


There is a number of infoboxes for use, including Template:Infobox city, Template:Infobox settlement, Template:Infobox Bangladesh district. It is highly advisable that these infoboxes are used on appropriate article pages.

Assessment statisticsEdit

Geography Workgroup assessment statistics

Wikipedia:Version 1.0 Editorial Team/Geography of Bangladesh articles by quality statistics


All WikiProject Bangladesh articles that are currently tagged as part of this workgroup's coverage with the with "geography=" parameted set to "yes" - are within the scope of this workgroup level assessment. This assessment statistics use the quality and importance rating assigned by the mother project: WikiProject Bangladesh. These statistics are automatically updated by a bot every 3 days. The article ratings are also used within the workgroup to aid in recognising excellent contributions and identifying topics in need of further work.

The ratings are based on quality scale and importance scale as defined by Assessment Department of WikiProject Bangladesh.

If you find a Bangladesh Geography related article is missing in this assessment, probably the reason is, the "geography=yes" parameter is not currently set within the Project banner of WikiProject Bangladesh. Please set the appropriate parameter. The table will be updated with correct statistics within 3/4 days.
