Wikitravel's geographical hierarchy and article templates give a pretty good level of detail as to what kind of articles we create, how to link them together, what sections should be in those articles, and what information should be in those sections. In other words, if you know what kind of article or section of an article you're working on, you can figure out what kind of information is supposed to go in that article or section.

However, it can be a bit hard to work from the other direction. If you know some information, it can be hard to find exactly where that information is supposed to go. This page is here to provide a kind of reverse directory for showing the best place to put the info you know.
