Psychogeography is "The study of specific effects of the geographical environment, consciously organised or not, on the emotions and behaviour of individuals". Hmm, sounds like I'd be interested in that

Shouldn't this be called geopsychology?

Nah, the emphasis in the definition is on the geographic environment rather than the emotional or behavioral effects. In other words, the construction of environments designed to alter or manipulate our moods and behaviour, as opposed to the study of the effects on our emotions by pre-existing gepgraphic conditions. Or something.
