For example, about any area of the world, or not?

GIS StackExchange is a place for questions about "GIS, Remote Sensing, Photogrammetry, Geodesy and Surveying, as well as Programming/Databases specific to the aforementioned." GIS stands for Geographic Information System, which is a type of computer software for dealing with geographic data.

Earth Science StackExchange is a place for questions about "geology, meteorology, oceanography, and environmental sciences."

Questions about geography would be more appropriate to Earth Science StackExchange.

If you're still not sure where to ask, my advice is to just pick a site and ask your question. If the site users think it should be on a different site, they will politely say so.
