I would like to request a new top-level project called Application:Geo

- Used for all the geo-related programs like GIS/GPS/Mapping software,

  where it does not fit at all.

  examples: GMT, grass, qgis, libgdal, libproj, mapnik, gpsdrive and lots

science:geographic sounds better imho.

That's the problem. It's no science stuff. It's mainly for the users, not the scientists.

- Also introduction the "Application" level, which should be used to

Yes. But it's a namespace usable for everything which is of such generic type.

I still would vote for Application:Geo

(Geographic is not right, as there are multiple geo sciences related :-)
