Geography in the Americas

Since 2005, the AAG has created and managed special efforts to facilitate communication among geographers across the American continent. These have included research projects, workshops, panel sessions at major conferences, roundtables, and other activities. To further facilitate exchange and information sharing, the AAG, with the involvement of PAIGH, the IGU, and others, has invited geographers, geography programs and geography institutions across the hemisphere to send descriptions of their research and their organizations for an inclusive online directory about the discipline in the hemisphere. Some of this data is presented spatially in the map below.
