What's the difference between Topology and Topography when describing
networks setups? The on-line tech dictionary says Topology, as do many
people here. HotBot, on the other hand seems to indicate a real-world
preference for Topography. As for me, I think of -ology as the study of
topo, i.e., surface characteristics and -graphy as drawings (writings)
thereof. But which is correct? Thanks,
