Topic pages synthesize information and citations about concepts. We expect these pages to be edited by multiple users--if you want to control information on a topic, publish a document.

Master topic pages are high level introductions to a major concept used to organize the wiki. These pages have developed organically, where it becomes useful to introduce a large number of related pages in an organized way. Master topics pages are typically associated with a category.

Create a Topic Page

  • Start by lumping pages. If page information becomes to dense or extensive, than split off information into sub-topics.
  • Initial topic pages may begin with bulleted notes--no narrative is necessary--get information in circulation.
  • Avoid removing information provided by others, but rather organize information into a structure so that conflicting sources of evidence are presented together, and evidence is organized from most general to more specific.
  • watch topic pages of interest.

Topic Categories

The goal of topic categories are to associate rather than isolate information. Topic pages typically have the most categories associated with them. Here are the list of topics that we are aware of on the wiki, and their general scope. New categories should be added judiciously as useful for wiki organization. Individual users may create topics to help organize pages they are interested in or to represent the work of their institutions, but these are not considered here. These "known topics" are presented in an edit window using template:topictable

Topics might also be concerned with a particular type of Effort (Such as planning or restoration), or be associated with a type of Workgroup (such as State or Federal), or landform (such as Floodplain or Beach).

Acronym Topics

A workgroup that wants to create lists of associated pages may create an acronym topic that it uses to flag pages. You can then generate automatic lists of all pages with that category.

Topic Table

At the top of every edit window, you can see a list of the topics currently is common use.
