# Purpose of 'location', 'position' and 'transform' tags?

These three tags represent a small number of questions (with having the most at 74), and I'm not really sure what value they add.

The purpose of tags (as far as I am aware) is to organise questions and make it easier for experts of certain topics to find questions to answer. However, I'm not really sure what an expert on 'positions' would know that any other game developer wouldn't (as it's a pretty fundamental concept). The same goes for the other tags, these all seem to be redundant (also I'm not sure I see the difference between location and position).

Should these tags be removed?

I've just found a potential use of the tag, a few questions under that tag are using it to refer to the real-world location of the player (i.e. geolocation). Even though this is very few questions to warrant a tag, I can't think of any other tags that would be a good substitute. Unless there's a suitable alternative, I'll leave these questions as-is.

• For the uses of location that you found, geo-location would be a better tag. – user1430 May 2 '15 at 23:49
