About Us

“I like geography best, he said, because your mountains & rivers know the secret. Pay no attention to boundaries”. ~Brian Andreas “GIS is waking up the world to the power of geography, this science of integration, and has the framework for creating a better future.” ~Jack Dangermond “I like geography. I like to know where places are.” ~Tom Felton Geography a field of science devoted to the study of the lands, the features, the inhabitants, and the phenomena of Earth. Geography is an all-encompassing discipline that seeks an understanding of the Earth and its human and natural complexities—not merely where objects are, but how they have changed and come to be. Geography is often defined in terms of the two branches of human geography and physical geography. Human geography deals with the study of people and their communities, cultures, economies and interactions with the environment by studying their relations with and across space and place. Physical geography deals with the study of processes and patterns in the natural environment like the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and geosphere. Geographers typically do the following: Gather geographic data through field observations, maps, photographs, satellite imagery, and censuses. Use quantitative methods, such as statistical analysis, in their research. Use qualitative methods, such as surveys, interviews, and focus groups, in their research. Create and modify maps, graphs, diagrams, or other visual representations of geographic data. Analyze the geographic distribution of physical and cultural characteristics and occurrences. Use geographic information systems (GIS) to collect, analyze, and display geographic data. Write reports and present research findings. Assist, advise, or lead others in using GIS and geographic data.

Role Models

  • Arnaldo Faustini

    Arnaldo Faustini was an Italian polar geographer, writer, and cartographer. He is considered by some to be the first South European polar specialist. Born in Rome, he received his doctorate at the University of Rome at the age of 21. Faustini worked at a newspaper based in Rome as scientific editor. He had a special interest in polar subjects, and published 19 books on polar subjects in his native Italian. He also wrote numerous articles. Among the polar explorers Faustini knew personally were Roald Amundsen, Ernest Shackleton, Robert F. Scott, and Adrien de Gerlache, of the Belgian Antarctic Expedition. Faustini translated into Italian De Gerlache's French language account of his voyage. Faustini also drew the map of the area explored by the Belgians. In gratitude, De Gerlache gave him the flag from the expedition's ship, the SS Belgica. The polar explorer Augustus Greely invited Faustini to the United States in 1915 for a lecture tour. While lecturing at Columbia University, Faustini met Amelia Del Colle, who later became his wife. Faustini's interests were wide-ranging. In an unpublished 1918 manuscript entitled Catalogo Descrittivo di Ponti ed Archi Naturali ("Descriptive Catalog of Natural Bridges and Arches”), Faustini wrote: "Completed under every standpoint, for a future, eventual publication – text, topographical sketches, illustrations, contents, indexes, etc., that I think to be my greatest work of physical geography." He was fluent in French, English, Spanish and Russian and understood Greek. The crater Faustini on the Moon is named after him. His papers on the Arctic and Antarctic are held in the Archives of the Istituto Geografico Polare "Silvio Zavatti" (Zavatti Polar Institute) in Fermo.
