Update 2: “Neogeography” Deleted from Wikipedia

Neogeography is now back in Wikipedia. Of note is a discussion about the definition that begins: "There is currently much debate about the scope and application of Neogeography in the web mapping, geography, and GIS fields." It's re-entry into Wikipedia went un-noticed by me. Latest edits are Feb 27, 2011.

Gary Gale looks back at the definition on Wikipedia in a post to try to find clarity. He concludes, helpfully: " It’s all just “geo” really." Sadly Andrew Turner points out in comment to Gary's earlier post on the removal: "Never fear – there is a deep discussion occurring that will be published soon in some Journals. This should give the clarity and credibility it needs."

See for yourself here. Happened back in September. Paleogeography is still there, but has its "original" definition, not the one that's the antonym of neogeography.
