Geography as an Analysis Tool for Shoe-Leather Reporting
When they get to college, more than a few students associate geography with simple exercises in memorizing places that they will have to identify on a map. Many were taught that way in middle and high school. Only some risk taking at least one undergraduate course in geography, without imagining that this decision will enable them to expand their knowledge of how spatial reasoning can be integrated into different disciplines, situations and processes. In journalism, geography contributes to expanding communication strategies. It also strengthens the ways of presenting the context of the events that are being covered.
