 Calcbench now has standardized geographic segments.  Companies report the financial performance of geographic segments in their segment disclosure.  Unfortunately, because of differences in segments company report and lack of standardization in how segments are reported in XBRL working with the geographic segment data is difficult.

Calcbench makes an effort to map reported geographic segments to ISO 3166 countries or one of a finite set of regions.

The below sheet, downloaded from Calcbench demonstrates.  The Segment column is the segment as reported by the filer, the Standardized Geographic Segment is the segment as standardized by Calcbench.

The data is also available through the Calcbench API, see the a demonstration notebook.
