"This evening I had the great pleasure of listening to one of my mentors from my days at Penn State, Roger Downs.  He spoke brilliantly about the importance of understanding expertise within the field of geography."

Can't go wrong with Roger Downs...

Max Minard's curator insight, March 21, 2015 9:44 PM

This scoop tells us the importance within the expertise of geography by providing a presentation from a college class in Penn State. In the presentation, most aspects of geography are discussed on a more broad level and the overall relative importance of geography within today's society. I understand how geography matters in a relative sense, but this presentation gave me a more in depth look on how an expertise of geography is beneficial on many levels. Through examples and real world problems, it explains how solutions can be brought up by solving them geographically.

Great site - showing locational context is important for not just Geography but every subject. How can we understand the complexities of topics like conflict or urban economies or agricultural histories.... without understanding locations and maps?

Melissa Marie Falco-Dargitz's curator insight, November 3, 2014 12:02 PM

It was nice to see where everything was happening. I hope it gets updated to more current events. I wish we had something like this when we were looking at the invasion of Kuwait.

Seth Dixon uses ArgGIS to juxtapose maps with the location a video is associated with. 

 

This idea has crossed my mind before. Now, a video can be contemplated with the spatial accuracy needed. This connects events to a place, and can help students more fully grasp the geospatial distribution of events.
