Subject: [OASIS Issue Tracker] (EMERGENCY-10) Use Area Description field to name polygons

    [ https://tools.oasis-open.org/issues/browse/EMERGENCY-10?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=37617#comment-37617 ] 

Steve Hakusa commented on EMERGENCY-10:

+1 to the high-level discussion on impact vs warning area

Related to area naming, in the case of multiple <area> blocks, it would be quite useful to define a single field that succinctly summarized all of the areas.

For example, we frequently see alerts with a long list of <area> blocks that correspond to existing political boundaries (zip codes, counties, warning zones).  But there's no place to understand that long list is "the New York metro area" or some such, and we go through quite a bit of gyrations and guessing to extract that.
