Day of Geography Spotlight

My article for the “Day of Geography”  @dayofgeog

“Day of Geography” is intended to provide students and the general public with a glimpse into the day-to-day activities of geographers/geospatial/geomatics practitioners all over the world. After all, we know that we’re not all about colouring maps and knowing trivia pertaining to capital cities and longest rivers.

The goal is to raise awareness about the importance and relevance of geography to the broader public and perhaps more importantly, to students. It will provide a repository, whereby those interested in pursuing a geographic education or career can gain insight into what we do. It will be a resource that teachers and guidance counselors can point to, to illustrate what careers can be had with a geographic education.
