Journeys into Geography

This year I’ve spent a lot of time at Department of Geography and the Geographic Information Center on the 5th floor of Burnside Hall. While helping students find maps, data, and literature, I received a common question from people outside of Geography. That was, “I am not quite interested in my subject and this [the application of GIS data and software to her research] makes it exciting…Should I switch to Geography?” I am not a geographer, so I cannot tell you exactly what a geographer does and what makes this profession appealing. However, I was lucky enough to come across the following video which might be able to answer your question.
