Geographic focus: Panama

Date completed: 2006

The growing number of applications of geographic technologies has transformed geography as an academic discipline. Oscar Alexis Torrez Ríos, an educator in Panama, created a teaching guide that includes exercises in cartography, statistics, and techniques of color separation of topographic maps, as well as various print materials. Oscar recommended students to consider geography if not as a line of work, then certainly as a field a study.
