Alexander von Humboldt portrait caption[edit]

Which caption is more correct:

  • Self portrait of Alexander von Humboldt, one of the early pioneers of geography
  • Self portrait of Alexander von Humboldt, one of the early pioneers of geography as an academic subject in modern sense

If you think both are not good, please suggest another text. Staszek Lem (talk) 16:53, 14 March 2016 (UTC)

Off-Earth geography[edit]

While "geography" once applied only to the Earth, we have an article called Geography of Mars. Others, not least NASA, use the term "Lunar geography". Ho can we deal with this, in this article? Andy Mabbett (Pigsonthewing); Talk to Andy; Andy's edits 18:55, 28 March 2017 (UTC)

Well, the article is about the Earth science (which is still the principal meaning of the word), not the word itself. I suppose it wouldn't hurt to briefly mention that the word is now applied extraterrestrially, but I don't suppose those applications need to be discussed in this article.
