Why Geography Is Important
From crisis mapping to city planning, geographers provide critical insight and skills that are valued by employers and public sector policy-makers.
- contribute to making choices about the best locations for businesses and services.
- manage natural resources including water, minerals, and natural gas.
- understand patterns of energy production and consumption.
- address human and natural threats to American safety and security.
Having dedicated K-12 geography courses sets the foundation for students to acquire the skills and abilities to use maps, imagery, and geospatial technologies to investigate significant spatial and environmental issues.
Without geography, you're nowhere!
