So I troll the whole list asking if there are any geographers and no
one responds; well done to ignore the trolling, maybe it got the whole

Partly what prompted me raising this question was the "About FOSS4G"
section in this news announcement http://www.osgeo.org/node/1752 which
is for a conference in a continent which FOSS4G reportedly doesn't
visit. "FOSS4G rotates around the world each year, throughout 3
regions of the Americas, Europe, and Asia/South Pacific."
In specific documents like the RFP, we could use "North America, Rest
of World, and Europe" and in generic things like news announcements we
could say something like "FOSS4G rotates around the world each year,
having visited five continents so far".
