Map/Data Last Updated: Tuesday 29 January 2005
DESCRIPTION: By default, the map shows the general location and highest degree offered by 328 Geography Departments at Colleges and Universities in the United States and Canada and the location of 6 non-academic members listed the the AAG Guide. The schools/departments are classified as shown below, and the primary data source for this project was taken from the 2001-02 and 2002-03 editions of the Guide to Geography Departments published by the Association of American Geographers:
All academic listings are for programs that offer at least the BS/BA level degree with a major in Geography..
As the user zooms in to various scales, different layers and labeling become available to assist in identifying the schools/departments desired, and their more specific location. In addition, at ANY scale the user may select the hyperlink option in ArcIMS (either the "Select Website" or the lightning bolt icon/button) and click on the desired school/department and be directed to the Departmental Website for the Geography or related department at that institution.
If the user comes across a broken link or misplaced location point, please feel free to contact us and we will update the point/information as soon as possible (please send the correct link if known).
We hope you find this site useful and please feel free to contact us with your comments: (firstname.lastname@example.org).
