Abstract

Geographic information (GI) creators, users, and stakeholders exist across nearly all communities, domains, and sectors. Geographic education varies in deployment and delivery for all. Formal training related to GI creation may not emphasize the organization, access, and use aspects of digital curation. Conversely, the existing programs that teach organization, access, and use focus on other information and seldom include coverage of GI. The purpose of this chapter is to outline both the history, current academic landscape, and pave a path forward for educating the different GI-related occupations. We present a multidisciplinary approach that led to the development of one curriculum. The chapter concludes with a call to develop a twenty-first Century GI workforce by coordinating across existing curricular scaffolds from K-12 to graduate programs.
