- How to mask clouds in ER Mapper?
The Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange is for questions concerning geographic information systems and science. We welcome cartographers, database administrators, geographers, programmers, and anyone interested in or using GIS.

I would not want to see the brand of GIS Stack Exchange diluted by changing its name from a clear focus on Geographic Information Systems but could the FAQ perhaps be tweaked to say:
The Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange is for questions concerning GIS software. We welcome scientists, cartographers, image analysts, database administrators, geographers, programmers, surveyors and anyone interested in or using GIS.
