The word for the disease of which your link is a symptom, is 'diaspora', I think. There are hundreds of copies of the man pages everywhere, most of them very outdated, while most misleadingly seem up to date... If we want to convince people there's LibTiff beyond version 2.x.x, we'll have to wait a decade for the average version number out there to advance that much...

No, it's worse, there's also that hijacked site whose URL and presence in all old-timer's bookmarks strongly suggests it is the official one, as in fact it once was...

It's also a bit ironical that people are actually making money of such copies, putting up Google and other ads on those pages, while actual LibTiff, the actual tree that cannot be found surrounded as it is by a vast forest of outdated snapshots, often doesn't advance as much as it could due to lack of funds.

So please be aware that the official website of LibTiff is http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/. The man pages are at

http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/man/index.html. So the single official copy of the TIFFGetField man page is http://www.remotesensing.org/libtiff/man/TIFFGetField.3tiff.html.
