The AAG’s Jobs and Careers in Geography brochure is geared toward recruiting both upper-level high school and undergraduate college students to geography courses, geography majors, and possible careers in geography. 

In collaboration with USGS and other partners, the AAG has published two color booklets containing new maps of the terrestrial ecosystems of Africa (2013) and global ecological land units (2014)

The Geographic Information Science and Technology Body of Knowledge (2006) is an important reference work and classroom resource for teachers, students, and GIS&T professionals. 

The AAG has published selected papers and summaries from the North America Land Cover Summit in 2006 which drew together scientists and administrators from across the world to assess national land cover monitoring efforts across the continent and identify areas of possible collaboration.
