The AAG has published some variant of its Guide to Geography Programs since 1968. Although intended as a general reference work, the guide contains implicit spatial information about programs and faculty. Once the challenge of extracting information from the semi-structured data is addressed, that information can add additional insight into the state of geography as a discipline and offer guidance to aspiring academics as they plan their entry into or path through the profession.
