'Spotlight' Resources

The AAG has compiled resources for each region designed to encourage collaboration and the exchange of information and ideas among geographers and professionals in related disciplines.

In each ‘Spotlight’ section you will find details of upcoming conferences and events; links to university departments of geography and related subjects; lists of region-specific programs at US universities; directories of national and regional organizations working in geography and related fields; government ministries of relevance to geographers; and other information.
