"Recent news stories discussed why geography is important to an informed and engaged society.  To those of us in the geospatial profession, basic geography education is an essential foundation to encouraging young people to enter the workforce in surveying, photogrammetry, GIS and other disciplines in our field."
 

Geldt ook in de Nederlandse situatie, Daar is ook dringend behoefte aan technisch en geografisch geschoolden. GEO-ICT. Toch staat geografie te boek als een sociale studierichting waardoor de GEO-ict beroepen te weinig in beeld komen. Ligt dit aan de sector zelf of aan de indeling?

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
