I came from env sciences, but did work in forestry ("hi Steve! its been a
while!) for a couple of years before moving to geosciences and then leaving
it all for policy. But as Steve says, some sciences are just more amenable
to using the more readily available, good quality spatial data such as from
remote sensing. Transportation, oil exploration, conservation,
location-allocation and a few others such would join this bucket.

Actually, discipline-profile of the OSGeo membership would be cool, useless
knowledge to have.
