Geography Awareness Week @ VerySpatial

We have been busy on the phones getting together a great group of interviews to share with you over the course of Geography Awareness Week (November 16-22). We chose to go with a single theme, Geography Careers and Training, throughout our interviews this year. So far we have spoken to Matt Rosenberg from Geography @, Anne Pollard Haywood of the MyWonderfulWorld Campaign, Hilary Perkins from URISA (I have been holding onto this one for a month), Jessica Touchard of GeoSearch, Inc., and Matt Koeppe of the AAG. We missed Rick Lawson of ESRI, our GISDay regular, while he was in town this week, but we hope to get him on the phone to keep the tradition alive.

As always, we will have daily posts that highlight each day’s themes (Monday: Human Geography, Tuesday: Physical Geography, Wednesday: GIS Day, Thursday: Global Hotspots, and Friday: Careers) along with this year’s overall theme of The Americas.
