Gah, almost missed topography. Thought it should have been hypsography, and hit a wall when that didn't work.

I too was surprised that "ethnography" didn't work. I understand the difference between the two, but it seems to me that the clue is just sliiiiightly broad enough to allow either answer.

Could you accept Agiography for Hagiography? Since Agiography is the most proper one.

Agiography yields nothing in a Google search, while hagiography actually comes up as a word. How is it "the most proper one"?

Steganography should also be acceptable for "Encoding information". I kept trying different spellings and was very frustrated because I couldn't think of anything else! Cryptography never occurred to me for some reason.

OMG!!! I found everything and I got stuck at typography....

I am a freaking graphic designer! lol

I blame the description, though, since the term "typography" does not just involve designing fonts! :p
