2006 CGA Conference: Harvard Returned to Geography

May 5, 2006

On May 5, 2006, Harvard Returned to Geography under a bright spotlight. Some say it was Geography that Returned to Harvard. Certainly the presence of the past, present, and next presidents of the AAG showed that at least some geographers were coming to Harvard, if only for a day. The presence of David Maguire and Jack Dangermond from ESRI made clear that this event was not being ignored by the GIS software industry either. But the reality is that our efforts will continue to depend on each one of us in the geographic analysis profession to build on what we have already created, so that geographic analysis will contribute to excellence in teaching and research of many disciplines.
