Inside Sources: Geography Increasingly a Priority for Schools, Employers - The article covers the American Geographical Society's vision for education and its support for APHG and AP GIS&T. There is commentary on open source vs. proprietary software: "In general, the availability of free or open source data platforms has not always been good news for the incumbents in other industries. Education publishing companies for example have been reeling in recent years from the competition of freely available or cheap web-based lesson plans. [Chris] Tucker [chairman of the board of AGS], however, does not believe that the same dynamic is at work in the geography space, saying that he thinks the public and private sides of the market are 'feeding off one another' as the sector continues to grow."
