Tell Gov. Ron DeSantis That Geography Matters
The AAG calls upon the scientific community to strongly and unanimously refute the claim made yesterday by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis that someone with a degree in geography is “not a data scientist.” In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic it is critical now more than ever to recognize the invaluable role that geographers and GIScientists play as they work tirelessly to inform urgent policy decisions using geospatial data and analysis.
If you agree, please read and sign our letter to Governor DeSantis to remind him of the scientific foundations of geography and to show him that geographers are well-qualified to serve as data scientists.
