Business Geography

Business Geography | Mr Tony's Geography Stuff | Scoop.it
Grant Thrall, Ph.D., pioneered a new field of study — business geography — at the University of Florida.

 

Business geography involves using sophisticated technologies to interpret and analyze data to help businesses make decisions.

Tony Hall's insight:

While I find business quite boring, I do understand it's necessity. I think this illustrates very nicely the relevance of studying geography and how it relates to the "real" world.

I understand that my readers are not people that I need to convince the geo-literacy is an essential component for a 21st century education; but we are the people that need to convince principals, politicians, school administrators, teachers and parents that teaching geography is fundamental.  Consider this an accessible article to use to make the case for geography for someone who sees the educational value from a business perspective.

Great site to show projection and changes in perception on maps.

This mercator puzzle was especially interesting. It illustrated how various countries look on a mercator map compared to other maps.

Cool activity / puzzle that plays with projection and shows you a comparative view of the "true" size of countries compared to others
