I'm wondering whether Geographic Information Science should be labled as a branch of geography and Geographical Information Systems techniques. Supposed 13:38, 23 September 2006 (UTC)


I just redesigned the template to use the navbox template. I think it looks 'almost' the same. I can't get the 'boxes' on the left (General, Lists, etc.) to have alternating colors, but I think it's comparable to what it was in the original template. This variation defaults so that the box is collapsed, so it is not so obnoxious on the pages where it resides, and therefore fewer people should object. wbfergus Talk 17:32, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Also, this template can be forced into autocollapse (where it is collapsed if two or more boxes are on the same article), or plain (always explanded and the [hide] link on the right will not be displayed). This can be toggeled by specifying "state=which_mode_you_want" when calling the template, as in:
{{Geography|class=Start|state=plain}} wbfergus Talk 17:41, 11 December 2007 (UTC)

Correct template usage?

Are there any guidelines for the use of this template? I mean is the plan to place this on all geographic articles, every river, every mountain, etc? - Shiftchange ( talk) 12:45, 30 January 2008 (UTC)

Removal of geographers part

It is very difficult to make just selection of geographers to be included. Its not like the continents, that there are few and well-defined. There is already geographer categories to use for those who want to explore more on the topic. Further I would argue that the current selection is poor and US-UK-centric. Of course any selection of geographers will be unsatisfying because the criteria for inclusion seem vague. Lappspira ( talk) 12:25, 2 October 2016 (UTC)
