AUTHORS:  Keith Ratner, Salem State; Glenn Hazelton, Northeastern University

ABSTRACT: Where GIS is being taught in Higher Ed, In the Geography world it has been noticed that the discipline is losing GIS to other areas of study.  Where is it migrating to? What does this mean for Geography? Keith Ratner will present the view from a Geography perspective. Glenn Hazelton will discuss the range of students he sees in his classes. Together we hope to generate an interesting discussion. Out joint goal is to generate a discussion about developing a coordinated interdisciplinary approach to educating people about GIS and the science of  geospatial technologies.
